And then nobody will be able to debug graphic and extended text mode
applications ... no.
I can add options to workaround buggy BIOSes, but: why should I drop features
in favor of buggy software?
Note that I already added a set of alternative functions that replace the
BIOS calls and can be selected from the SETEdit command line. Robert must do
the same for RHIDE, I didn't even check if he added it to 1.4.9 or not.
Some users reported the alternative code works for their buggy boards.
