Funny to listen to this song on the day Texas issued the first gay marriage certificate.  :-D

Couldn't find what you were looking for at Fry's?  Yeah, that seems to keep happening to me a lot lately too.   I just keep going back... (glutton for punishment, hey that fits the theme for this game!)   Honestly you might find a better mic at Guitar Center on W. Anderson.

Some of the artifacts are normal actually. In fact, my color dithering routines take advantage of it to some extent. :-)

Actually the green/violet pixels are detected by a half-pixel shift.  The best approach is to double the speed that you are sampling so that you can detect 560 monochrome pixels.  If you can do that then you can reconstruct the colors quite easily with a YU'V conversion lookup and a 4-bit window.

Technically YI'Q' conversion is more accurate. :-) See: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1YJHVDkQCwCFKXRurYa2kmsaMoRkYcJYRp1P_coHUW-U/edit#gid=1819819314

4-bits is enough to get started but wouldn't accurately emulate the NTSC chroma bleed nor color fringes. We have a bunch of reference images in Bug #254 ... https://github.com/AppleWin/AppleWin/issues/254

Great job!  The black lines on the left screen is actually the behavior of the machine, it is part of the behavior of the graphics hardware.  Frogger does this too.  IIRC it happens when they reset a particular counter to multiplex the sprites in order to display more than two sprites on the screen at a time.  I saw a bunch of demoscene folks explain how to code for VCS and I'll just leave it at this: It is even more bizarre than you can imagine.  :-)

Those black lines show up on CRTs as well!

When scientists do a mic drop online it looks like this...
 
No offence to Lee G, but Mr Smith just handed out a sick burn.

Should have sine scrollers going across the top and bottom to screw with the player even more.  :-D

You can use mockingboard in a //gs but you have to set the slot to "your card" -- also for anyone wondering the Mockingboard has two AY chips on it, which is the same chip used in sinclair spectrum and Atari ST (which respectively only had one each.)
