@tlr: i was testing on real hardware and aware there were going to be slight issues...

It would've been fairly easy to just open the upper and lower borders (with a bit of trickery to switch banks during that area since the graphics are all in bank 3) but where's the fun in that? =-)

@tmr: Positions of splits are a tricky area. On new VICs (8565) you get an 8-pixel aligned split, often with the first pixel grey (=color 15). In your example this means an aligned split with a potentially disappearing pixel on the left side. However on the older VIC (6569) splits will appear one pixel late. In your example this means an split that is shifted one pixel to the right.

You can test these effects in x64sc by selecting the VIC-II type "on the fly". Note that the initial greydot is emulated as always present in x64sc.

@Monte Carlos the upper and lower borders aren't open, what you're seeing is the "sparkle" from the colour changes. i tried to hide it as much as possible with the border colour but it still shows up a teensy bit.

Nice effect on the scroll as it enters and leaves, really like that TMR. I think the cset could have been a bit thicker, could just be my bad eyes too ;)

I love rasters :) (keep that in mind) :)

Why is there a one pixel edge in the upper and lower border? is this a x64sc glitch or also on orig?

Reading the scroll was a bitch. The rasterbars and its colors was very nice however.
