Hi Bob,

Not really but as you pointed out on AA I don't think this will work for you.

The ball/missile can be any height and use the stack method. You would
just make sure you only updated the sprite for a certain number of scan
lines (i.e. 4 height would only do the compare every 4th line).

IIRC your situation is different as the height of the missile/ball is
truely variable. Where as a game like Pong, Breakout, or Combat the height
of the missile/ball is static.

Take care,
