Sorry, I couldn't resist. I enjoy observing the different techniques
advertisers use to attempt to persuade us to buy their products... and I
love to pick on the really annoying ones. You should hear me go off when
commericals come on the tele.

How about a toggle key combination to switch between standard and XEP-80
screens?

That's a good idea.  So simple in concept, yet so good nice for the user.  
Adding to my list...

Thanks!

Thinking about this... I played a bit with the idea of a 80 column mode
in the ++ emulator, but there's one constructional detail that troubles
me and makes this all but easy: The emulator always "thinks" in
half-color clocks because that's the building-stone of GTIA/Antic
timing, but I can no longer do that in the XEP 80. This means that either

o) I've to double cycles in the GTIA, thus doubling the memory traffic,
and thus disallowing the practical x3 magnification modes

or

o) using a separate window (not really nice)

or

o) using an ugly 4xsomething character set to fit into the screen.

My first idea was to use some kind of overlay (half-transparent XEP 80
on top) but that doesn't really fit. The next idea to use the "terminal"
window and "ncurses" for an E: emulator, but that doesn't work well for
win32 since there's no fully working ncurses there (pdcurses has some
glitches).

Well, any ideas?

So long,
        Thomas

using a seperate window would sort of keep in the spirit of the
hardware (since you needed to plug it into a monochrome monitor).
I dont think it would be that much of a big deal since it would mainly
used for curiosity (how many software programs were written for the
XEP80 anyway?)
