Keep in mind that VCC is a Coco3 emulator. The Coco3 never swapped
artifact colors by hitting the RESET button, that's for the Coco1 and 2
The Coco3 does not start the video system at random so to swap artifact
colors you must hold down the F1 key during startup. Try holding down
the F1 key while doing a hard reset (menu/files) with VCC. Of course
Composite mode must be selected.
