Summary MESS-specific 06425: specpl3e: sprites flickering at level 2 and 6 in Terminator 2 - Judgement day
Description At the level 2, the motorbike sprite is flickering all the time.
At the level 7, the same behaviour with the police van sprite and the helicopter.

This is the same problem I've reported with 06287, so seems not to be a game specific problem.

Played with the Terminator 2 - Judgement Day.tzx file from
Steps To Reproduce 1-Launch specpl3e with the Terminator 2 - Judgement Day.tzx in the cassette
2-Press intro when LOADER is selected.
3-Open the mame internal ui and in Tape Control, play the tape
4-You can boost the loading by pressing F9
5-Follow the instructions and start the game
6-Beat the enemy at the first screeen, it's so easy
7-At the second stage you can see the motorbike sprite, no need to reach stage 7, but you can do it anyway
Additional Information Provided an input, but when I playback it, doesn't recognize the internal gui moves and can't load the tape, so you'll have to reach stage 2 by yourselves.

This is a link from youtube as usual, where you can see the sprites with no flickering:

Stage 2 --> 1:13
Stage 7 --> 6:18
