In theory one scan line must be 64us long, but if you calculate the normal VIC timings, you'll see that is not this value in the C64: DOTcloks*540 = one scan line, (1/7.88Mhz)*540 = 68.5...us. If I used 8Mhz for the DOT clock, it would be 67.5us. (Correct me if I'm worng, please) So The B/W picture sould appear in this case as well. The color information is another question, that's true. BTW, the VIC doesn't know about the different clocks, so it's gonna work I guess. In the worst case I'd get a B/W picture. Joco Message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list
