#7199 closed enhancement

Scanlines

Description

Scanlines and half-bright-scanlines are an easy/fast
way to enhance the game graphics. Almost all good
emulators implement them.
(yes, I know, this is not an emulator, but you got the
idea. ;)

Even better could be a "TV mode", like SNES9X has.

Uhm... in my opinion is not a great idea... I mean, emulators use it
because the original console/arcade game ran on tv screens, so in
the passage to monitor, it looses its "feel". But Lucas games always
ran on monitors, so.... yeah, it could be easily implemented, but it
would be useless...
Always IMHO, of course.

Many Amiga users did not have real monitors back then, but
used TVs instead.

MGA and the first VGA adapters also ran on 15Khz monitors,
like Amiga and arcade machines. Only SVGA started to use
high-frequency monitors, that does doublescan for the
low-resolution modes like 320x200.

In other words, the EGA, MGA and original VGA cards also had
scanlines.

Rejected. We'll add SaI2x at some stage in the near future.
