Summary MESS-specific 08266: spectrum and clones [ys36:cass3]: High scores color effects not displayed properly in Qarx
Description In the high scores table, only the top line of text will display the multicolor effects properly.

The color effect can be only faintly seen in the provided real hardware pics due to it moving too fast, so an additional emulator screenshot has been provided, from geecab's previous attempts at fixing it.
Steps To Reproduce Just load the game with LOAD"":
-Press J for "LOAD"
-Press Shift+P twice
-Press enter, then F2 to start the cassette (with UI controls enabled)
-Wait until the game loads
