Is there any special reason why 50:50 mixed colors are solid alternating lines instead of switching back and forth as it is usual if you do a checkerboard-dither in Mcol-Interlace (check lower right, yellow/green on white)?
Just wondering if that's on purpose or if it's a bug in the new Timanthes lace-function! ;-)

there are at least 2 known emulators that can show flicker free ifli pix: vice patched for 50hz refresh and hoxs64 in full screen and "limit speed" disabled, at least they work for me for watching ifli pix =)

ppl bash ifli because it looks ugly in emulators :) they forgot how it looks like on a good old crt.

this is awesome. i think ifli works great with this particular piece, because this piece takes advantage of the increased color depth well on the face.

i am beginning to think many people bash ifli mode by default as a reflex nowadays :)

Yes finally, the flickering blues!

It is hard at first glimpse to recognize your style, but I really do like this blend of what reminds me of early 20th century art and 21th flava.
