The scrolling tilemap and sprite library is coming along nicely, but as a diversion I brought over my fast line drawing routine and 16 color dithering code. Here is a composite color display of a selfie using the dithering in the most inefficient way possible. But the results aren't terrible - it looks better on a real composite monitor than DOSBox. There are certainly some limitations using this mode, but there aren't many color options with a CGA.
