Quoting Six
The trade off is going to be between losing the rastertime to badlines so you can have the ghostbyte or getting the extra rastertime for just sprites, then?
That badline-less ("ESCOS") mode has idle byte ("ghostbyte") all over the place, no? =)

You can have badlines if you like, but why?!! The graphics you emit must be the same all over anyway. The net result should be a big blob of single, non changing color in the middle (40/38 x 25/24).

And taking Groepaz’ advice:

RULE ADDENDUM: center area must be of a different color than the border. I can imagine timing can be tricky so a few lines or pixels extra or less of the center area is ok. But it should by no mistake look like the regular border.

Quote: For clarity, ghostbyte is allowed (just hide it in the main area), especially for c128 releases!

So c128 is also allowed?

The executable is one file, or multi loading also possible?
It doesn't have to be one fx only?

What's the upper limit of REU size? Preloading it with a data file is ok before run?

As much as I like the idea, there's too much compos at the same time IMHO. It wouldn't really hurt anyone or anything if that one would start after the other ones finish. Which would also make sure there's enough attention of the spectators for all of them.

Agree. I didn’t initiate it and I’m just tech help. :)

What wacek said. Seems to happen frequently lately, so it's hard not to suspect deliberate intention. Then again, CSDb needs some kind of "current compos" sticky.

Whats really needed is a proper place to host compos where you can submit something and its not shown until deadline, and where you cant see what others voted at least before deadline.

But of course that requires more effort than throwing random ideas into a thread :)

Are visual effects allowed for clearing the (40x25) screen?

obviously not - that'd make this a "who makes the nicest screen clear" compo
