That's not for 60 Hz PAL such as Brazil's PAL/M, is it? If it is, I'd bet l_oliveira would know, as he tested my overclock ROM on a bunch of different configurations.

Argentina uses PAL-N, combining the lower subcarrier frequency of PAL-M with the 50 Hz scan rate of regular PAL. I guess I eventually need to add a test to my overclock demo telling which scanline NMI is on. What games work on it?

Over the past few years, did anyone ever get a chance to run 240p Test Suite on an Argentine chipset? Its CPU clock speed test, the successor to the overclock test, has an NMI scanline indicator.
