Not quite. If you set the playfield to the mode where the foreground colors
for the left and right halve are the player colors, you could set one of
them equal to the background color and make the other one stand out of it,
so the text would only appear once, in one half of the screen. This wouldn't
have to be very sophisticated...

With love (and many lines of text to draw)
