One thing that could be causing it is the halftone RAM on the chip being bad.
That might account for wierd vertical patterns appearing.

Have you tried limiting the memory to 512k? See if the problem goes away?
I had RAM that was bad in an old STE and it caused a similar problem.

Blitter Smudge bit

Hi folks. Does anyone have any info on what the smudge bit on the blitter can be used for? I've heard it can be used as an indirect addressing mode for 1 to 4 pixel scaling but I can't see an application for it.

Hi. For drawing sprites the blitter is quite a bit faster than the 68k and you get your shifts for free. Each memory access costs the blitter four clock cycles (5 IIRC on the Falcon). Clearing and filling memory is the fastest operation taking only 4 cycles. Things get a bit more complex when you ta...
