Hi, The other week I was lucky enough to find an American model VIC-20 with Radar Rat Race cart, C2N, RF modulator & US PSU for a grand total of 3 pounds. The seller had chopped the US type mains plug off from the PSU; maybe they thought no-one would buy it if it didn't have a UK type plug. It works okay using a UK C64 PSU hooked up to my lame old portable US TV. (But will the timing be off due to the 9VAC being at 50Hz instead of 60Hz?) A while ago someone said that the NTSC (not PAL) VIC-20 can do true interlaced graphics, unlike the C64 where the so-called interlacing is just showing a different picture in alternate fields. Anyway, I'm wondering whether there are any VIC-20 programs or demos that make use of this to give nearly 400 lines of vertical resolution? (Actually, pressing one of the function keys in Radar Rat Race* may* have turned interlace mode on, but since the same thing is displayed in both odd and even fields so there is no increase in vertical resolution.) -- Mark - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
