For you who got me on FB, I put a more extensive description of the code there.

To sum up, the scrollers are offset and moved in a phase over 8 frames so not everything has to move at the same time. This is mostly happening in the upper&lower border timing. The text area timing takes care of the moving bars. There are plenty of NOP's left in the text area timing and in some border frames. Deadline-time rather than raster-time was the limiting factor. If kept pushing, more is possible for sure.. DYSP over text in this case?

I used advanced assembler macros and some scripts so I didn't have to duplicate and re-write everything for every frame manually.

I did write a SID player for this part but didn't have the time to compose or get Magnar into the details: The SID was SID-sampled with simple delta compression. It took space but the raster line usage got low and predictable and the part had space left over.

There are more or less a couple NOPs on each raster line, but the rest is filled with lda/sta for the scrollers and raster color. This must be close to 10k code lines? Great work!

insane indeed, quick peek into the code showed its stuffed with nops between color changes, how does it scroll then ?! :-O

I've coded scrolls similar to this with rasters moving in each scroll.
This, however, is insane!
I'm thinking you found a few extra cycles and haven't shared with the rest of us :D

Nice work CRT.. Really nice...

Added the SID file that was the original output for this nice intro by CRT. It had to be sampled down to 34 seconds due to rastertime restrictions inside the production. But here is the original file anyway. :) Cheers Magnar

Sorry for having been so sulky. It's PAL+NTSC and full upper+lower borders + music + 25 scrollers+complex raster updates.I reverse my post.

Not at all uncommon to put speedcode within raster code.

I ran this with debug borders on vice. I wonder where the rastercycles to move the whole screen come from. great!
