No one has answered my first question but I think it's because of a delay on he list. I have another question. I'm working with some sort of quick solution to NTSC/PAL formating problems that I hope to make into a nice cut and paste for future projects by anyone who wants to use it, but am having some trouble because I want it to be automatically in software instead of having to manually switch between the formats. I know that most properly programmed NTSC games will show on PAL (they look awful and are typically squezzed into a corner, right?), but what about PAL software on NTSC? What are the results? I have only an emulator to work with here so there is no telling what would really happen. Can I get an assist? Also, It seems that the PIA's timer runs independent of the screen speed and should be reliable as a clock against which I can check frame speed to determine format, but I'm new to this. Does that sound right to everyone? If I get the code functional I'll post it for eveyone to use in future projects. I'd hate to be a dedicated fan who can't play the new stuff just because I happen to use this or that format. It would suck. So here is my solution. Please help. Thanks?
