Well... I don't think 'it's just a matter of putting 2 and 2 together'. I mean, behind *ANY* idea was sumkinda brilliant person. Others saw 'Hey! That's a great thing!', and copied it.
What I'm trying to say is that finding out about screensplits isn't a small thing.

And what about the first really smooth horizontal scroll? Tongue When did we see that for the first time? Smile

Was it Psycho World, Hydefos ?

I'm sure it wasn't for the person that indeed invented them. Ofcourse for the person that thought 'Hey, MSX can prolly do that too' it was just a matter of putting 2 and 2 together...

AFAIK "Laydock" was the first MSX2 game that was available in Europe, at least. And it has a screensplit... So, maybe it was one of the first ones? (AFAIK it's from 1985)

EDIT: hmm, it is from 1985, but it doesn't have a screensplit after all, does it?

IIRC Bernard Lamers told me that many of the VDP tricks are well documented in ASCII's impressive collection of MSX Databooks.

Can't he and/or Rieks translate them? Wink

There's so many pieces of information locked away in those japanese docs.... Crying

Hehe.. sure Bernard and Rieks can translate those databooks. If they start now and work 8 hours a day, I think they'll be finished somewhere in the year 3032. Brilliant idea! Smile
