Something just came up on #c-64 IRC channel. Apparently there's an interesting article about a new hack found with the VIC-IIe in the German GO64 magazine. Has anyone read this article yet? <ThunderBl> the VIC with 62Hz was great... <ThunderBl> vortexion: on C128 in C64 mode it is possible to kick the VIC into leaving away rasterlines! <ThunderBl> MrX: exactly that. displaying less rasterlines, thus increasing screen refresh. 62 Hz or something. on some monitors it doesn't work, but on those on which it does, it's very cool :) especially for interlace pics etc.! I'm most intrigued. Perhaps there are hidden registers, something like the plus/4s TED registers. Or maybe it's a completely different hack of the VIC-IIe's implementation.
