In the demo, credits were given to Robin Harbron for testing. Either I am 
mixing things up, or he owns a 50 Hz (220V European?) PET. Perhaps testing 
was done at an earlier stage when it was a matter of how the CRTC works at 
all, not specifically timed for the 4032?

My last remaining, working PET is named 4032 on the front but as far as I 
remember it contains a 2001N/3000 series motherboard upgraded with Basic V4. 
Thus I suppose this demo won't run on my non-CRTC PET.

However what are the odds the demo would run on a 8032 using one of the 4032 
emulation programs? I suppose the CRTC registers and timing is so critical 
it won't work, even if "normal" 40 column software including the (simpler) 
demo "Hardcore Petting" released earlier this year runs just as well on a 
8032 as the intended 4032. I've tried it myself.

Best regards
