A collection of Mad Hackers Lab source code repositories can be found at

Currently three repos are available: - header file and utility library - buildable source code of VBASIC - short examples demonstrating various features and programming techniques

We are pushing new stuff daily.

We have just pushed another rasterbar example to the repo. While its visually similar to the previous one, under the hood the operations are more fittingly divided between the 6510 and VASYL, each of them focusing on what it does best. Consequently, much less CPU time is needed - about 10 rasterlines per frame to animate ten 16-line rasterbars.

The example also demonstrates some intermediate-level programming patterns and techniques, which are useful in squeezing out more power from the board.

Questions and comments welcome.
