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. > Re 26 lines bug: I was referring to the Anime-Tion demo released at the > Flag2000 party. MagerValp had a few words to say about that way. See > the subthread of '6510 and 8500 differences' from early aug last > year on this list. > Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
