My space invaders has developed a graphics glitch. There are extra
lines above and below the invaders and the invaders have no eyes, the
lines move with the invaders. I have the multi kit with the self test,
all ram is good but the bit test fails. I guess my question is what
chips should I look at that may cause the bit test to fail. Not really
that familiar with SI at all so an help is appreciated.

Thanks!

It's impossible to point you to any one IC in particular, but
in general suspect the 25S10s if you have an early daughterboard.
It could also be something in the support circuitry around them.
OR, it could be a bad connection between the motherboard
and the daughterboard.

It's a cocktail, the daughter card is later one I am guessing since
there are no 25s10s on the board. I took a picture of the screen glitch
here.

short period of time.
