I've been using the Level6 interrupt a bit on the Amiga, but other than that, well, I'm a complete idiot.

What's possible? Is it possible to set up an interrupt that fires for example every 100ms? Every scanline?

Just out of curiosity (at the moment)..

Yes and yes.
If you specifically want IRQ6 then a CIAB timed event (per scanline also with copper).

On the topic of timing interrupts, I remember that the C64 allowed for such precise setting of the CIA timers you could use them for raster/VBL interrupts as well instead of just using the raster IRQ.

Maybe something like that can be done on the Amiga as well. Would be interesting because you could then use level 3 interrupts without needing to check for VBL interrupts
