I don't think reducing the size of the radar screen would be too bad.
Are you talking about the size of the Defender radar screen?

BTW great work. I finally got to play it in my Cuttle Cart. My son
wouldn't put it down :)

Hi there!

I'm currently doing the radar screen and have some 
positive results, as you can see in the attached BIN. 

(It's not finished, as it's not vertically centered for 

So far so good. My problem is, that by doing the Radar 
like that, I can't display any info on the sides of the 
radar screen. At least no score digits or such.

And I'm running out on scannlines for the picture, I'm 
already doing 147 right now, so there's not much room 
left on top/bottom. Maybe a 6-char with the current 

Now my idea was, to reduce the radar to 50% of the 
current size and to make it part of a 6-char display.

An advantage of this would be, that it'd be completely
without any flicker. 

What do you think?

Or do you have any other ideas?
