    The Genesis can flip horizontal and/or vertical, right? Wouldn't that need 8 sprites per since they're asymmetrical in this example? I'm curious how it can be done with 5. Maybe I'm missing something...

    I think most people are already familiar with it, but the screensaver After Dark comes to mind.

    Sorry - I missed that part of your post. I would think that if it doesn't work in Bizhawk then it wouldn't work in Retroarch, assuming they're both using the most up to date version.

    Cool, thanks. I guessed the 3D effect was just sprite animations but don't know enough.

    I feel like you're being purposefully obtuse. We all know what dithering is - you do not need to point it out.

    None of that suggests the artist did not intend that dithering to be seen.

    I just realized that there are tons of Game Boy Color games with a lot of dithering. Should these be blurred?
