I remembered Barbarian II having some neat stable border rasters when you completed the game but looking at youtube and the RZX-Archive recording there were none. So I checked my personal ending save state folder, found the Barbarian 2 ending and lo there were rasters. Perhaps they only appear when played on a 48k, seems the 128k just plays music instead.

Here's the rasters:

Oh! Good catch!

Sophia and Sophia II both feature border effects:
- the first when Sophia drops a skull into the cauldron;
- the second when end-of-level bosses are defeated.

The code for this effect is based on a similar routine found in Mega-Buck$, which should then be added to the list as well.

Border effect also are used in Spellbound, Knight Tyme and Stormbringer whenever Magic Knight casts a spell.

Alien by Mind Games has some basic border noise every time the player issues a command. It's a quite useful thing though, for an example, if you happen to press fire while the sound of a grille being opened is played there's a chance that the game will eat your input. If there aren't any border noise you know that the order didn't go through and need to issue it again.

Yesterday I was doing some tests after updating Cousin Horace, and I recalled that the third chapter displays a border effect when Horace dies.
