I have a technical question about one of the best Videopac game: Satellite Attack aka UFO!

The big magnetic asteroids follows always our space ship. But after our ship explode, all big magnetic asteroids are flying at the bottom right side of the screen. Does anybody know why  Huh?

I haven't checked for this game, but generally when a sprite or character needs to disappear from the screen, it is given a high value for the Xpos and Ypos, so that would correspond to the lower right corner. Sprites and characters can't really be turned off individually, so when they shouldn't be visible they are moved to a location outside the visible area.

Many thanks for the answer René.

I knew, that you would answer the question. First I want to write: René, could you please answer the question. But I changed it in "anybody". We all can be glad, that we have such a technical mastermind between us.
