Hi there!

So I survived another Christmas. Unfortunately my wife bought "Legend of Zelda - The Minish Cap" for me, I hope it doesn't slow down the development of CB too much... ;-)

I'm confused by the 160 double width pixels. That's just 40 pixels correct?

40 PF "bits". Each PF bit is 4 pixels wide and 40*4=160. And they're not square, that's why I'm refering to them as "double width" (I think it's like the C64 hires modes (320*200) vs. the multicolor ones (160*200) - in the multicolor modes the pixels are twice as wide)

BTW - game is good. I never played the original arcade game but it reminds me of "Irritating Stick" on the Playstation and more recently Kuru Kuru Kururin on the GBA.

It's very similar to Kuru..., yes :-)
