#7199 closed feature request

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.
