No, the two different colours are coming from the playfield and the

is supposed to show, and masks out the shapes with the player graphics.
The two players are actually set to black, like the background in
those areas, where the sprites aren't displayed. So, unfortunately
this routine won't be usable, if the individual sprites need to have
more than two states.

Oh, I see. That's a really cool trick.
