But if the fighter would lean backwards for a high kick, the
head the body and the belt would line up and we'd have the same
problem, that I mentioned.

The problem with gradients is, that I need very bright colours
on black background to keep the flicker low.

Anyway, I have changed the graphics to an outlined body and filled
face, fists, belt and feet. I think this looks better than the old
fighters and I might get away with monochrome graphics.
