Re: Flashing pixels in 8 color mode

Ok, scratch that - it works if I fullscreen Q-emulator on an XP VM!... it doesn't work in a window, and full-screen screws up windows 7 something proper..

Yes, I'm looking to do some multiplatform 68000 games, and where possible, I'll be releasing them on the QL as well.
