I have tried to compiled the Nula version for my Linux Mint box, but with no luck.
Please, someone put the Nula changes at stardot/b-em master brunch, because this works great for me.

I've added Video NuLA support to b2, including smooth scrolling. Hasn't made its way to the repo yet, but here's a video of it in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VHmkvWwNq8s

YouTube made a bit of a mess of the video, sadly, but hopefully it's just about discernible :)

There's still a bug somewhere, though, because there's an extra 4-5 scanlines at the top compared to what you see in B-em or in Rob's YouTube video.

That looks really good Tom =D> =D>

The extra scanlines could be related to the interrupt timing...

When I was tweaking the row timings to get the multiple ruptures working, I found that adjustments in the timings sometimes caused extra scanlines at the top of the display (I guess because the overall frame timing wasn't quite right).

It's possible that the timing is more critical than it should be as I ended up getting it working more by trial and error than by calculation/design :oops:
