sc8 is not much of a game-friendly screen. If you want doublebuffering you already need 2 screens ..
sc8 has 2 screens .. where do you want to store your tiles-to-draw and other stuff ?

Game-options on msx2 are sc5 (did anyone every consider sc6 ? Big smile ), sc4, sc2 ..

sc8 might be suitable for puzzles in which little happens on the screen.. I can perfectly imagine a chess-game on sc8 orso ..

btw, regarding screendrawing, is sc6 equally fast as sc5 ? it's hi-res, but!, less colors, 4 pages.. so the amount of data-moving would be the same as sc5 ..

Plus, screen 8 has a fixed palet for sprites. So not ideal for games either.

yes but when you make a game in sc8 it made in asm, so you can use a copy of a tile

Zett, I know a SC7 game called Xak: The Art of Visual Stage. Ever played it? You'd never want to do that again. Scroll's all messed up.

sc7 is like sc8 again ... only 2 screens.. and twice as much vram traffic as on sc5.

[edit] seriously: is sc6 as fast as sc5 ?

Yes, SCREEN 0:WIDTH 1 is probably the best option: 24 bytes/frame.

@wolf_
from my tests I remember scr6 was as fast as scr5, at least for high speed VDP copy, but 4 colors....
