That game name sounds familiar to me. It was advertised at the end of Odyssey by Alcatraz, before the final credits rolled. It looks like the same people were behind it.

Nothing has changed in terms of the OS (ClassicWB).

The only thing is that this time I'm using Windows folders as hard drives on WinUAE, whereas in the past I was using actual HDF files.

DamienD, I have tried Scanline Opacity at 20%, and whilst it looks like a scan-doubled display, it is also a bit darker. How do you get your pictures to look so bright and contrasted?

All I've ever heard for the fourth set of 8 bits was the Alpha Channel, as I said. If it wasn't used for advanced TV genlocks, then it was definitely used in OpenGL for games like Quake 3 Arena, etc.
