Transparency effects

The NeoGeo video hardware only supports 1-bit transparency: a pixel is either opaque or transparent.

Developers had to come up with ways of faking semi-transparency with different methods like fast blinking (often used for shadows), or only having one out of two pixels drawn.

Blinking can appear buggy in emulators if frameskip is necessary.
