Don't get confused by the output of emulators. There is only one emulator that
comes close to correct artifact appearance, MESS. The Keil, and VCC emulators
approximate the artifact effect by using pure white, black, red, and blue but
these are not artifacts. As a result of this graphics on these emulators will
look sharper than the same screen would be on a real Coco attached to an NTSC
