I'm really 128er but sometimes I'm creating comparison between VDC, VIC-I, VIC-II and TED.
I have for displaying graphics C128 and C16+4 emulators which displays all correctly
Z64K - best C128 emulator at all - in case of graphics has also deinterlacing option in three choices
YAPE - displays all possible - screenshot is possible to do really good, but interlace of screenshot is not best
But C64 has too many emulators and when I try to find any it is like blind tip - count of emulators is large.
I know that maybe VICE is best C64 emulator - correct me if is it not true - but VICE has no deinterlacing option.
I know that waiting from C64 emulator any deinterlacing option is for many users useless 'cause VIC-II supports not interlace.
Really what is called on other platforms interlace it expands resolution and mix colors, but C64 only swaps frames without resolution change - really it is according to FLI named flexible line interpretation, no interlace.
Swapping frames allows to get 136 colors , but resolution is not changed. So anyone from you can ask - why you need deinterlacing?
Simple: swapping frames produces flickering what is common also in real interlace - this I need to remove to create progressive scan.
And here it meets problem - progressive scan joins together even and odd frames - and this C64 produces not. So, exist any emulator which mix colors? Or produces stable picture like progressive scan?
BTW: I understand not C64 designers why they removed from VIC-II chip interlace option 'cause VIC-I, VIC-IIe and VIC-III this option have. It is not fair for C64 users.
Thank you for recommendations.
