5 = scan2 (light scanlines)
6 = rgbscan (rgb scanlines)
7 = scan3 (deluxe scanlines)
8 = fakescan (black scanlines)
I think number 8 comes closest.

Tired of Windows malware but fear to try out Linux? Try a CD-live Linux which
does not touch your harddisk. Like <http://www.ubuntu.com/> or
<http://www.knoppix.com/>. Find out if Linux works for you without any risk.
