First I was thinking along these same lines, but I 
didn't want to influence the brainstorming with my own 
ideas :-)

Now, the more I'm thinking about it, the more I like the 
"Star Voyager" principle as Glenn suggested. I think one 
could turn it into a really jawdropping demo, if using 
all available RAM for the PF data, which is calculated 
in real time. (Like stella@themovies using the PF 
instead of a 6-char :-) )

Ah, if I only had more time for such neato things...
I'll see.

Does anyone have some code that does draw any PF1/PF2 
picture out of the RAM? I guess similar code might be 
reqired for Warring Worms, Death Derby or Incoming?

What I'm looking for is code for a reflected playfield 
with PF1/PF2 drawn from RAM... ;-)
