Project the current ship's location onto the screen, either returning the screen coordinates of the projection (if it's on-screen), or returning an error via the C flag. In this context, "on-screen" means that the point is projected into the following range: centre of screen - 1024 < x < centre of screen + 1024 centre of screen - 1024 < y < centre of screen + 1024 This is to cater for ships (and, more likely, planets and suns) whose centres are off-screen but whose edges may still be visible. The projection calculation is: K3(1 0) = #X + x / z K4(1 0) = #Y + y / z where #X and #Y are the pixel x-coordinate and y-coordinate of the centre of the screen. Arguments: INWK The ship data block for the ship to project on-screen Returns: K3(1 0) The x-coordinate of the ship's projection on-screen K4(1 0) The y-coordinate of the ship's projection on-screen C flag Set if the ship's projection doesn't fit on the screen, clear if it does project onto the screen A Contains K4+1, the high byte of the y-coordinate
