If I had a 4 colour background can each scanline be changed (darker/lighter) to give the illusion of a gradient like shading? The left panel is the original image, the second panel has shading every 16 pixels, and the third panel is every 1 pixel scanline.

Does this copper effect slow down games in anyway or are there particular limits I need to be aware of.

Many thanks in advance

I do have or am working on a full HD version here

Yes you could have copper banding for the background, and if you wanted to go a step further, you could reload the colours for the hiscore table to give it a bit more colour as well.
