Summary MESS-specific 06287: spectrum, spec128, specpl3e: All ingame sprites from Comando Tracer are flickering when moving
Description Playing this game I experience continuous flickering in the sprites that are moving. Backgrounds are fine.

I've found some youtube gameplays where this issue doesn't exist.

I attach a youtube link with the gameplay. Also, you can download the tzx image from worldofspectrum.org, since this game doesn't has a rom name at spectrum_cass.xml
Steps To Reproduce 1-Download the ComandoTracer.dsk.zip from the link I've provided (since is easier than tape to run and the behaviour is the same).
2-Insert the disk image at 3" single sided floppy drive from tab media view of the specpl3e rom.
3-Launch zx spectrum +3e rom (specpl3e) because the other models don't support disks.
4-Press intro when LOADER is selected and the disk will launch automatically
5-Press 0 to start the game after the game intro, that's all

A little information on how to get a game started and playing would be helpful.
Not everyone uses or used this machine and knows the common defaults

Yes of course. Follow these steps (Using messui):
1-Download the ComandoTracer.dsk.zip from the link I've provided (since is easier than tape to run and the behaviour is the same).
2-Insert the disk image at 3" single sided floppy drive from tab media view of the specpl3e rom.
3-Launch zx spectrum +3e rom (specpl3e) because the other models don't support disks.
4-Press intro when LOADER is selected and the disk will launch automatically
5-Press 0 to start the game after the game intro, that's all
