Yes, I just looked at it. Super cool demo, as many Crest demos are. It uses expanded sprites with $3fff.

Those vertical border scrollers in Krestage are also great.

"@Digger: is the Crest RHCP done with interlacing?"

Did you even try the demo ? If you did you would see there is NO difference between the lines in the upper/lower border and the normal text lines. So... NO :)

@Joe: play some animation perhaps? Like in Led Board
Cool demo that is!

Nice! Not so overly impressed though, but I've been around long enough to say, I'm bored with interlace modes, regardless what it does ;D
But the tries in border, to give new possibilities, with rasters etc. always gives new thoughts of course, so if you try to change from chars and think about images, what would you do?

@Jackasser and Digger: Thanks for the suggestion. algorithm also suggested this, but I just wanted to try something different.

One of my most productive days was throwing away 1,000 lines of code.

Compare with Don't meet Crest, https://youtu.be/A0PygkgfuIQ?t=1798 and https://youtu.be/Ha0SYfMF0Pw?t=472

What JackAsser said. It still flickers a lot, even when you use less luminance difference (by using darker rasterbars), you still turn on/off two halves of the screen. When you do the $3fff chess pattern and X-stretched sprites, the luminance difference is the same but the screen halving is gone :)

May I suggest using expanded sprites and do "normal" interlacing instead, but also put them below a $3fff pattern setup in a pixel sized checker board pattern which you also phase shift each frame.

Thanks, guys! I added the changes in background color in the upper border as an experiment. I was just curious about its effect on the flickering.

How about the scroller? Has that improved as well?

This looks way better on a real machine than the previous version. I must say that the flickering in the upper border is nastier to my eyes than the lower border. In the lower border the flickering is almost not visible for me.

Nice work!

I tried to hide the flickering from the interlacing by color cycling. IMHO this looks clearly better in emulators than the first version. I don't know how much this improves it on RH.

I fixed a bug in the scroller.
