I thought I was alone in this – but that pretty much sums it up

I will load up the OSSC optimal timings and take another look. I have a feeling from that it’s just a few tweaks and they will most likely go away. I remember watching a Firebrandx video, where he had the lines I was talking about in some RPG game, and then he changed the sampling and it was gone.

Awesome job on the screen shots. Its a very close call as well but sonic does have different colors on his head for sure. Not sure which one is better. (I think with these things you have to see them in person)

Not sure if you have an everdrive (or the game itself), but I find the best way to find these lines are on “Dr.Robotnics mean bean machine” (or the puyo puyo game it was basically made from)

At the main menu: https://www.mobygames.com/game/genesis/dr-robotniks-mean-bean-machine/screenshots/gameShotId,37625/

The brown area on that menu screen shot is just a mess with these vertical lines.

I’ve only ever put the bypass on a NTSC VA3. I also have a VA6 I might drop it on. I am always just a bit worried about lifting the pins. No so much about breaking them ( you could always sand down the chip at the edge for a 2nd chance) but still – there is always a risk.

One other thing I will note, is that I put the RGB board where the RF adapter used to sit. (removed the RF adapter as it was broken) I know you had put it on the VDP, but I was planning on putting a M1 Mini Mega audio amp board there.
