Sorry to insist again...

I can't get Lethal Xcess working in ST mode (while it works fine in STe mode). Is it expected?

Using latest Hatari HG, freshly recompiled for Cygwin.

I still can't get Lethal Xcess working in ST mode. The sync scroll fails with skewed, unstable display.
Is this a known bug?

On the other hand, it works perfectly in STe mode.

It used to work before more or less by luck, then I think some more precise emulation broke the way top border is removed (before, 2 less precise effects were kind of "compensating" each other)

In STF mode the game uses hardscroll and try to selfcalibrate on the STF model's speed. Unfortunately this selfcalibration is not very good and it depends on some kind of "jitter" between mfp timer and cpu (due to the fact that the MFP timers and the CPU don't share a common freq).

I have some kind of hack for this which I can try to use in a future version.
