looks great on real DTV2 on PAL color TV, no artefacts or whatsoever though I got no colorfix modding.

that happens if x64dtv runs as dtv v2.
settings -> c64dtv settings -> dtv3

didnt bothered to check for dtv v2 in my code.

I tried to run it in VICE 2.3 on my windows machine.
I loads fine and the music seems to play nicely, but the graphics is garbled.

edit: wat. Tried to run it again and now it seems to work better, but I still get some kind of artefacts:

Matt: you start x64dtv and load it?
(If you can that is, for some reason x64dtv won't start on my Quad G5 with MacOS 10.5.8, i think it used to work in 10.4.11! Same for VICE 2.2 and 2.3)

And how exactly do I run DTV with VICE?

Wow, very smooth! No flickering on my TFT either.

@Dr.J: yes, DTV2/3 is emulated by x64dtv.

This is really impressive. I saw it at the party on real hardware. The gfx looks extremely good although the resolution is nowhere near the original.
And secondly, i saw the standard interlace version which flickered pretty good and this new mode which manages to remove the flickering almost completely. And i still wonder how this scroller transparency is done. Very well done!
