Raster paper

This is a simple but very useful tool for C64 demo coding. It's a grid, 63 squares wide, that you print out on paper and draw instructions on. Along the top are helpful reminders about which clock cycles are involved in various effects, and which ones get stolen due to badlines and sprite fetches.

I have found this to be immensely helpful when developing effects that combine several VIC tricks.

Print a couple of copies and bring them with you on long trips. Don't forget pencil and eraser!
