Does anyone know why my color scheme looks fine using StellaX 1.1.3a but
looks washed out and totally different on a TV or z26? I wouldn't expect
there to be such a change - especially when I can run other games on all 3
and get the same exact colors.. I haven't seen this problem with any other
games (even the homebrew ones) - am I missing something simple?
I tried to track down where I posted about this on USENET or here (can't
remember) and I can't find it, but...
I noticed once that I could tell the different colors of the ghosts in
Pac-Man on Stella, but had always thought that all four were yellow when I
used to play on a 2600. The answer that came back was that between the RF
cable and the poor quality of color you get on a TV vs. a monitor, color
contrasts tended to (and the same adjective was used in the reply I'd
gotten) "wash" out.
That doesn't explain the z26 problem or perhaps even the extent to which
things were washed out for you, but I thought I'd mention it.
