Often is quite a relative term. While some coders might have done this I'm quite sure the majority just used normal compression algorithms instead of using such cheap tricks which looked quite horrible, specially when things like (bilinear) filtering would have taken much too long on a plain 68000 A500.

Hence I'd really like to see some examples as well!

This just doesn't make sense at all. The scaling of these pictures back to their original resolution will not affect the display in any way!
