That fixed the jumping screen, but the text in the top is still not displayed
on my PAL 2600. Just a blue line with nothing on it. (The blue is, because
it's PAL.)

I'm looking forward to see it. But you should also change the random 
generator. Currently it looks as if it is going throug a list, that repeats
pretty fast. Having a counter run from 0 to 6, that increments in every
frame, gave enough ramdomness for my Tetris version.

BTW you should post stuff like this to the list by changing to TO: line
to stella@xxxxxxxxxxx . You might get more responses. :-)
