These two options for scrolling on msx1 have already been discussed in the XRacing thread
https://github.com/artrag/scroll_8_ways
but now I was thinking than on msx2, using the special vram arrangement used above, one could use 16 pages of 256 tiles each.

This corresponds to scrolling in 8 directions in steps of 2 pixels by loading only the PNT and setting a couple of registers, having a lot more details for the background...
If I get something nice, I'll open a new repository.

woah! 16 pages of 256 tiles each!! that's pretty insane! Looking forward to seeing what you come up with! but not just for scroll, with 16 pages of 256 tiles each, I think that many other visual effects can be achieved. For example, I'm sure that we could pre-render a lot of stuff for raycasting engines like Tales of Popolon, and make them run super fast!
