yeah, Void uses this 'mode' in the turn disk part (by janee/breeze), also told Profi 1 on the party. On the projector screen the pictures looked better than nufli.

Really like the pictures presented in this collection!

The mode seems to be hires fli with x-shifts per line... but with the same display code used for both frames (only the vic-bank is changed!!). Hats off for achieving such colours plus an insane level of detail!

I faintly remember a discussion here on CSDb in which Oswald stated that the Turn disc-part of Void was showing such a mode - though I have to admit that the pictures in the dreamtime2k17-collection look better. Would be interesting to learn about the conversion algo behind it!

Great level of detail. I was hoping for details on the converter, too.

Indeed it is a tradeoff between color mix possibilities and flicker. On a CRT the flicker can be more noticeable in comparison with an emulator (e.g flicking yellow and white looks far darker on a crt.

On the plus4, there are more of a possibility of color choices hence it can be matched more closely with less flicker) - On a c64 far less less mix choices that produce less flicker.

Nice! Some of the pictures are quite "flashy" and some almost not flashy at all. Do you have "flashiness" as one of the selection criteria for color combinations? I didn't inspect where the disturbing flicker comes from, but it doesn't look good if you combine two colors that have too different luminance values. For example flickering between black and white won't look like mid-gray, it just looks bad. Just an idea, and you probably knew this already. It would be interesting to read an description on the conversion process and its development.

Edit: I watched it on a real C64 and a CRT.

by looking at the code it is hires fli interlaced but also unique d016 writes per line to minimise error.

Some notes on this interlace mode would be nice to have :)
