Anyone out here having bad screen wiggle with this game?
Tried a plethora of variant roms.  All react the same.

What firmware are you using?  I'm on V20 RC4, and it seems to be working fine on a stock NES.  Not that I haven't seen strange behavior between a couple of my systems with firmwares RC5-RC7.

Cybernoid uses a "blacker than black" color and this color can be mistaken for a blanking signal, causing wigglies.

I doubt that's the problem...  here is a video... it happens throughout the game and appears up and down the screen.

That is the problem, I have seen something very similar happen with a TV I had.  Try TMNT 1 and see what happens when the rollers travel up and down the screen.  That game also uses the "blacker than black color".

Yeah, that looks like more of a display issue than an EverDrive issue to me.  I haven't experienced that myself, but modern displays can do wonky stuff with old video signals.

Well, it might not be modern, but it still looks like a display issue to me.

Does it do that with both RF and Composite?  Also, do you have another display to test on?

Your problem = the way the game was programmed + your TV
You can test on another TV, perhaps a modern one doesn't get confused.
