or they (game devs) were like: "shit...that left side border is annoying. let me try setting DIWSTRT earlier to compensate for the Amiga's hw bug" Other devs were like: "bah, whatever...I just want this project to end....it doesn't look so bad. just leave it be". which is why some games are centered and then some others are not.

I think it's a mixture of the original h/w "bug" and some devs trying to compensate for it while others didn't.

but, more to the point, i think the original "bug" may stem from commodore's hardware reference manual. they recommend Display window start and stop positions which are clearly not suited to most monitors. isn't that the actual problem here...rather than any hardware bug?
