Cruzers description is correct. It's the same old FLI that's been used for HIRES and MC for a long time, but in character mode. I call it PETSCFLII.

Charaters are directly from the ROM, not even copied to RAM, so it should qualify for the wild part of the PETSCII-compo.

I can't see any real use for this mode though. The image size is the same as for HIRES. The pixel placement is restricted. The color limitations are the same as in ordinary char mode and the FLI bug is pretty bad.

I guess it should be possible to do the same thing with MC or ECM chars. (:

Cruzer, this (or similar?) was done in a PET demo already, because it has no bitmap mode, and not possible to switch of ROM chars :)

Dr.j: Same charset (the ROM one) but different screen every line, to be able to have different chars every line, made possible by having badlines every line, aka FLI. And no d016 displacement it seems. So a pretty simple routine, but a great idea and converter.

guessing , every raster line is a different charset with some movement ?

I'm guessing too, fli every line and characters picked so that they resemble the desired bit patterns.or maybe linecrunch :)

Not pixeled I'm afraid. It's a conversion of a drawing. Did some minor fiddling before the last conversion step to fix things. Could have put much more effort in the actual image if I've had the time.
