Ok updated the image.   Less clutter.   

Also left the black border in so you can see how much it would take of a real CPC screen.


The overscan screen or just the part of the screen inside the border?

Sorry for late reply.  Game is still technically in progress as again all my projects share a lot of the same code and when I improve it in one I copy paste it into the others.  Got some improvements I've made doing Roland of Sherwood that'll get put into C.P.C. :)

The 'monitor' effect?   It's just this pattern:

repeated across and down the screen with the magenta parts being completely invisible and the black parts being semi-transparent to whatever degree you want the effect to be showing ( .5 value for 50 percent, 1 for totally black and so on in between).  I tend to use simple scanlines but this pattern is included in my games as an option as it's about as accurate to a CPC monitor as you can get without going to higher resolutions (this effect is applied to the game screen after scaling up 200 percent.  So a 320x200 would become 640x400 and then you apply the monitor effect in the original pixel size so it appears a higher resolution than the game screen so simulates the monitor effect somewhat)

I hope that made some sense at least.  I am useless at explaining. :P

Yeah this one is far far more faithful  :)
