epiphany

This came to me a couple nights ago as I started to go to sleep. I jumped out of bed and sketched it out so I wouldn't forget.

For Rally S, one of the issues I'd been concerned with was the Atari's chunky scrolling of the play field. I'd originally been planning to make the up/down scrolling chunky as well so that it would have worked like the Vic20 version of Rally X.

Last night I realized that I could use smooth scrolling up/down and delayed scrolling left/right(like in Thrust+ Platinum ). The entire viewable window into the maze will shift left/right on the screen, and once it'd gone far enough it would rapidly recenter to provide an illusion of smooth scrolling where there really isn't.




Hmmm... I wonder if that would work for Bosconian, too? :ponder:
