Well, in theory I think you should be able to get 10. That is 160
positions on the screen / 8 number of bits for the player which would
give you 20 8-bit sections. So that's 20 8-bit sections but with one
player with 8 bits between, that would give you 10 players.

This would depend on if you can do a RESPx in enough time though. You
might want to look at Eckhard's New Trick? Thread at There
he's getting 15 players per line.

Take care,
