|Summary||08317: pcega [arknoid2 and clones]: Screen flickers and doesn't refresh properly|
|Description||Only when an EGA card is used, the screen will heavily flicker and all sprites leave a trail behind. Also, the scrolling text in the intro doesn't properly scroll.|
|Steps To Reproduce||
-First load the pcega driver (or another one where you've assigned an EGA card)
-Go to File Manager/harddisk1 and load msdos5 before the PC starts booting.
-Go to File Manager/floppydisk1 and load arknoid2 or arknoid2a.
-When prompted, make sure that EGA/CGA graphics are selected (and MOUSE isn't selected if the drivers aren't installed).
It's advisable to throttle the loading process as much as needed, as it takes a while.
CGA mode and EGA/VGA mode with a VGA card seem to behave properly.
A similar problem happens in bublboble, another game in Taito's "Fun Time Arcade" series.

bublbobl has been fixed with this commit: https://github.com/mamedev/mame/commit/ad7cbf9c0a1d888d28d70b2c29c20350592482e0
arknoid2 now has the intro text and screen trails fixed but the racket and ball flicker heavily. Everything else seems to behave cotrrectly now.

|There's still some sprite flickering going on in the latest builds after the fixes, is that confirmed to be normal behavior then?|
