Yep, 128MB or RAM is mostly a "because you can" thing (I've got 192MB in my A1200 - it used to have 256, but I downgraded for neatness as the 128MB SIMMs were too fat to fit in one slot). However,...

No bother :) Yeah, the display wouldn't normally start to be drawn until around line 44, so I guess the copperlist is only initialising certain things like the palette just before that.

I had 256MB in my A1200 for a long time, but since reduced to 192 because the 64MB SIMM was a better fit, and I don't think I ever used above 128MB anyway.
