Re: VIC 26 Lines Bug - Truth or Legend ?

Just about this demo :

Ninja (the coder of the demo) was ofcourse JOKING in that demo... 
ofcourse the VIC doesn't overheat.. mostly becoz it is hardwired, 
meaning that is fetches a byte *anyway* wether it has to or not. So 
displaying more gfx doesn't require more memory-fetches. Also it 
would be nonsense to think that displaying 26 instead of 25 lines 
(just 4% more) could possibly heat up the chip =)

hope this clears things up.
