Yeah, I agree that it should be processed by the PC, but I just don't know about reading the display data directly with software. It goes so fast, and with the brightness controlled by the pulse width, I think the low priority of the parallel port would be too slow/inaccurate. If we could read it realtime with a microcontroller that then sends the data to the PC during the blanking period, I think that'd be the way to go. Of course, that's more hardware/complexity, and software is so much easier to write, but I can't see it working well :/ .

Or, we could just get our hands on a Video Boy and copy their design :D .

/me wishes KR155E had waited for the rest of us.
Imagine walking into a Japanese shop and actually purchasing Space Invaders - for retail price. :D
