Hm... I may be wrong, but I got the impression that the sprites move only 7 pixels left and right. So it does only allow 7 pixel wide fonts. To get the whole thing working with only one charset, all letters are LSR'd every other scannline.

I once thought wether it probably was possible to always RESP in one line and then only shift 8 pixels to the right in the second line to get the full 8 pixel resolution. Well, so far I never had the nerve to further investigate that... ;-)
