Been following that one for a short while already.
Since I have a DS, it's really a great thing for me :)

My only concern is about the missing lines on screen, I guess it's due to the difficulty in fitting a 240x224 screen in a 320x200 screen ?

Wonder if it's possible to kind of "interpolate/smooth" to have the contribution factor of missing lines on screen, because on the Oric we play a lot with odd/even lines, so if some lines are missing this can totaly ruin the "colors" !

I'd bet interpolation would slow down the emulator a lot compared to just calculating pixels and plotting them as they come.

why not put the extra lines onto the second display?

if you had the option to crop the lines from the top or bottom together with a choice of size it could work.

you could move the lines with the scores to the second display like that and still keep the play area complete.
