Is there other options for this mode?, The one I used I remember it being 8 bit, with 4 palettes of 256 colours each.(Looked great in null DC)
Other modes, i tried either took too much memory, or were aweful looking (the Power VR compressed one especially).

It's not like, draw sprite, remove it from Vram, put a new sprite in vram, draw it then remove it, then draw again etc...this way doesn't seem to work on the Dreamcast, because of the deferred rendering, that's what I beleive is happening?

This would mean, I will need all the level, with all the enemies in VRAM when a level is running.
(I could not use system to vram, because all the enemies can be at once in a frame, and need to rendered)
Please let me know if I am saying wrong things here.
