As others have already pointed out, that was a mistake. The branch
wouldn't have been taken in the first place. Sometimes I really
wonder myself, how I got my programs to do, what I wanted them to
do. :-)

It's my TV. And sometimes I think my TV is the only one with this

The new version runs fine on my system, with colours and everything.

BTW why are you so reluctant to use HMOVE? If it is because you
can't get the screen position divided into values for the delay
loop and HMOVE, then there is a routine, that does this, at the
end of Ed's SoundX sourcecode. This can be found on the Stella CD.

The routine takes three scanlines to position a sprite, but you can
use normal Xposition values with it.
