Summary 08403: ssf2t: Graphics tearing in Cammy's stage (England)
Description When playing on Cammy's stage (England), the graphics will randomly tear and break-up. This mostly happens on the castle wall on the far right of the screen.

Usually happens when both players are jumping and the screen tries to scroll up to follow them, but it also happens at random times. It could possibly be a "sprites per line" error or scrolling error? I am just guessing though, as this graphics tearing happens randomly and for no individual reason that i could see.

I have not been able to find any video footage of real arcade hardware displaying this bug so far, but will upload some if i do.
Steps To Reproduce 1. Start playing the game as normal.

2. When on Cammy's stage (England), observe the castle wall to the far right of the screen as you play. The castle wall will show random black lines and / or visible tearing at random moments while you are playing.

I checked back a few years and it still happens (0.186 is earliest I can test quickly due to romset changes) and it still happens.
My gut tells me it may be related to overall driver timing and lack of wait states in the 68k CPU. Expect this to stick around for a few years more.
