Urgch, never really thought breaking down numbers into their divisors would ever really be relevant, but here I am. It's kind of amazing how big a difference .0001 pixels a frame can change things.

Which then leads to compromising between the platonic ideal and a chunkier movement rate, to get approximately the movement speed you want. For example, a monitor refreshing 85 times a second divided by 14 is 6.0714, almost a whole number. Divide it by 15, and you get 5.666.. steps a second. Which is very ugly in practice.

I'm sure emulator authors use better technique here than I do, but they're still a grotesque mockery of the actual games when you think about it too hard.
