You should also remember to disable the sprites. And even the longer timeout is insufficient if all sprites are enabled on a PAL C64. In this case, almost all CPU cycles will be stolen on a bad line, stopping the C64 almost completely for 64 microseconds. That's why programs that show sprites on the screen and use KERNAL routines for disk I/O turn sprites off while loading. Marko - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
