I dunno, those screenshots are really too small (and scaled down already using bilinear filtering) that it's really tough to see any difference! I'd like to see two unmolested screen captures from the same game so it's more obvious what's going on. :)

Did any of you ever try "Ghosts'n'Goblins" on a newer version

making it look like if you where staring at a real arcade

They simulate an arcade monitor by doubling the pixels and making
every other scanline much dimmer.  I've seen other emulators
(C64, Colecovision, etc.) that do this as well.  I thought one
or both of the current 2600 emulators had this feature as an
option already.

No, no, way cooler than that! I'll try to make a screenshot asap when I'm home!

Wait, i found some screenshots of Gauntlet "doing it":

With "bilinear filtering":

Without "bilinear filtering":

Look carefully at the font for example. A major improvement!
