I did that, but the colour still looks off. You changed the number
of scanlines, but you forgot to change the colours this time. ;-)

BTW, I gave this demo a quick try on my SECAM VCS too. Mario shows
up in the same red and pink as he does on the emulator, so I'm
sure your Interleaved Chronocolour effect would work here too,
if you want to give it a try. You could test the Color/BW switch
for this, since it always reads BW on a SECAM console.

The switch itself does turn off the colours in hardware BTW, just
in case anyone wondered why Atari included it on the SECAM console
when it can't be read normally anyway. ;-)
