So, with the "f4b" switch the converter will colour-correctly shrink all the colours, then extend them again (also colour-correctly). By this the non-AGA machines will show the colours without brightness shifting.
However, since the quantizer works on 24 bit and the shrinking happens after the palette quantization, it can produce collosions, which can be more worse, than a non-correctly bright picture. (E.g. both the colours "3f89b1" and "4590a9" will be "4488aa" and the final image will use less colours.) So, use with care.
2 steps quantization - 24 bit to 12 bit (and error distribution) then 12 bit to CLUT size.
