Hardware feature not emulated...?

I'm not sure if this is where I should post this or whether Photon might already have mentioned it himself so apologies in advance if this is repetition or old news but...

This prod recently released by Photon: http://www.pouet.net/prod.php?which=57097

runs OK on real A500 but doesn't run OK in the emulator - what I mean to say is, it runs with no crashes or anything but you don't see the same in WinUAE (blank screen) that you do on the real hardware (see screenshot at link for real hardware output).

Thought I'd mention it in case it leads to something in the emulator being emulated more accurately than it is now.

As far as I know Photon sent the intros to Toni already.

I had a feeling when I submitted this thread that someone was about to reply saying just what you said...

What do you know, my crystal ball was working!

Apologies for wasting time - I'll shuffle away quietly now...

It is "feature" that can't be emulated without major display emulation rewrite (without causing huge slowdowns) because currently Agnus display DMA and Denise shift registers are not as separate as in real hardware. (and they shouldn't be for performance reasons, this special stuff needs completely separate code path)

"7-plane" BPLDAT5/6 emulation is easy because patterns are static, this can be faked without actually emulating it.
