Definitions for "Flicker"
The tendency for many games to look like the graphics are 'flickering'. This is due to hardware limitations that only allow a certain amount of objects to be drawn on the screen at the same time. One second of the screen will show 'x' object, the next will show 'y'. When run quickly, both objects appear to be on the screen at the same time, although they appear to 'flicker' as the screens change back and forth. This is most notable on the Atari 2600, although it is certainly not the only console to suffer from this ailment. Some game companies, notably Activision, banned their 2600 programmers from using this technique and they were forced to develop other methods of displaying multiple objects without flicker.
Caused when too many objects are on the screen at once. The system's processor cannot handle all the moving items thereby causing a "flicking" effect where you see the image or part of it, display on and off the screen. This can be caused by either bad programming and/or poor system design.
The flashing effect seen at zones of abrupt change in colour or brightness in a CRT display. The term also refers to the strobe effect that occurs when the refresh rate of a video display is low enough for the eye to perceive. Monitors plagued by flicker tend to cause fatigue and eyestrain.
To flutter; to flap the wings without flying.
To waver unsteadily, like a flame in a current of air, or when about to expire; as, the flickering light.
The act of wavering or of fluttering; fluctuation; sudden and brief increase of brightness; as, the last flicker of the dying flame.
The golden-winged woodpecker (Colaptes aurutus); -- so called from its spring note. Called also yellow-hammer, high-holder, pigeon woodpecker, and yucca.

Occurs when molecules other than the ion enters the channel opening and briefly blocks ion conductance. This can be seen on single-channel recordings as squiggly lines during the open time, as well as a lower overall conductance. "Desensitization" is believed to be due to too much ligand, for example acetylcholine and nAChR channels, blocking the channel rather than activating it. For CFTR, NPPB or DPC induces rapid flicker and therefore block pore.
Flicker (real name Miles Woodward) was the original bass guitarist of Welsh rock band Manic Street Preachers.
a variation of input voltage sufficient in duration to allow visual observation of a change in electric light source intensity. Caused mainly by ac and dc arc furnaces, welding machines, alternate and reciprocate loads, and wind generators.

The effect caused by a one-pixel-deep line in a high-resolution graphics frame that is output to a low-resolution monitor, because the line is in only one of the alternating fields that make up the frame. This effect can be filtered out by field averaging. See also field and frame.
