Speaking of this, I plan to remove for example at least some of the
8-bit host screen rendering routines after the next release - I doubt
that anybody is still using 256 color displays today (if not, please
speak up).


I also think this adds more code to maintain for very little use I guess (and planar/chunky conversion routines are a real headache :) )

But maybe we could also remove 16 bit output too and keep only 24 bit full RGB ? I doubt many devices are not capale of 256 colors abd only capable of 65536 colors.

And in all cases, shouldn't SDL handle the conversion itself if Hatari outputs a 24 bit RGB image and the display device is only 8 or 16 bit ?

Might be a little less efficient, but that's not even sure if the video card driver has some accelerated function to do this.
