One more: recently I’ve tried the pc engine mini (with a hdmi>vga dongle) and I thought “DAMN if only we had that”.
(the mini’s default crt effect is terrible)
Draw only every other line and/or column is missing sorely indeed. Marqs sounded optimistic about a year ago so I don’t know why the silence about it, while requests for fairly obscure cases get attention.
Originally I though such added feature to the scanlines engine would find few use cases, but in fact it should be quite useful in many places, like I was also contemplating all the things I could do with the 360’s 2D library.
Welp, fingers still crossed!
