well I see that's seems to be the popular consensus. But where is that info coming from? It's not impossible that they couldn't have created a different screen mode by directly programming the 6845, but if that mode was to work with a CGA monitor (and the 1000's to my knowledge output nothing but CGA or CGA to composite), the overscan lines would have to be reduced (all screen modes regardless of what card is being used have some overscan). Has anyone successfully programmed in that mode? It's the first I've heard of it, is why I'm questioning it.
