There are several disk images floating around of High-Res and color games: i.e. Drol (you can find it in mono-highres & Color), Hard Hat Mac from EA, Threshold and more..

now which are the originals?.. and does the color or mono are hacks or modified version from the originals?

Hi Nir,

The "color" releases are all hacks. We like to provide original versions whenever possible so we didn't include any of them in the database.

Actually, it has to do with artifacting (which, BTW, only works on NTSC systems). Threshold was an early title in the database and the screen capture was taken with the artifacting option on. We realized it didn't give very good results (white lettering will usually glow) so we turned artifacting off in the emulator settings.
