I finally understand how supercats 26-character text kernel works (I think)! As a result, I have written my own version which displays 28 characters on a line. Unfortunately I could only do this by flickering at 20Hz and using a 6-pixel high font, so it doesn't look all that good. However, I think this is the first ever 28-character kernel on the 2600? It only displays one line of text at the moment, but it should be possible to display 12 or 13 lines using the same techniques as my previous text kernels. I will be very grateful if someone can run this on a real 2600 as my own equipment is currently buried in storage. I'd like to check that it actually works, and if the flicker is acceptable on a real TV?
