PCAEwin and StellaX do unpredictable, bad things to my system and I try to avoid them (huge swap files, messed up desktop and inevitable crashes) so I try to avoid them except for spot checking accross emus. Maybe if I can get PCAE DOS running...

The one time I tried it, I wound up with an empty 0 byte log file (Mr. Hard Luck With Emus, that's me!)

I'll try it.

Well, the thing is that STA WSYNC is the first one in my loop that draws all the rows of Instigators. So it's a little unclear to me if the problem is only the first time through the loop or every time through the loop. My guess is the former as it's only adding one scanline and if it was the latter it would be adding 5. So I've added a NOP just before that STA WSYNC I believe that should be enough to ensure scanline 68.

I hope...
