Some works have been puts in the SAGA-core.

In short, what we see in the following videos is a simple raster effect on a 8-bits ** RTG ** screen.

SAGA now offers a way to get the Vertical Position of the video beam (VBL).

Cool... Are we seeing the first steps of the true Super AGA that will end up as the improved Copper etc?

A German and a Dutch flag and the Dutch flag upside down? Wow, feels very much like the late 80s and there isn't a world cup vor Euro this year... :o)

I bet you could do a French flag when there is an Xpos register... ;)

Lolz, I'm afraid that is a couple of lightyears beyond the scope of this project.
