Hey guys, got another laptop that I planned on using for projects, like programming Atari games for example.
So I transfer all my stuff from my old laptop to this one and install the latest Batari BASIC, VbB, and Stella. They all ran fine and then I ran my latest BIN from Robot Zed in Stella to check it out. The playfield jitters like a mofo. Now, I thought it might have to do with something I did in the code and tried an older BIN that I know worked on my old laptop. It still jittered. I saw what version of Stella I was using on my old laptop and it was 3.8.1. So I scoured the Internet and found that same version on some website. I downloaded and installed it, and it ran just fine. I tried the latest Stella and the earlier one I could get on the Stella site (4.1) and they all did the jitters. So, there's got to be something going wrong in the emulation when it comes to displaying a DPC+ playfield. Is there any way we can get to the authors of Stella about this issue? They can use Robot Zed's current source for testing material, if they need to.
