You could also trade resolution for speed by halving vertical resolution: * Either render at halved vertical resolution, then DMA that to the VDP, then reduce vscroll by 1 every 2nd row so the plane is stretched vertically by a factor of 2. * Or DMA the gfx with a transparent line between each pair...

Though depending on the palette actually chosen (and the colors trying to be approximated) you can get as few as 64 useful psudo colors. (it's also limited to 120 c...

I guess a single plan (and so a single 16 colors palette) can be enough as pixels are always rendered in 2 pixels chunk so you fake more colors (128 actually) by blending these 2 H pixels... We just need to take a good base palette to allow at good representation of the original 256 colors palette....
