What works

Renders the first 16 colors of 256 color VGA (mode 19).

What does not

Pallettes are not fully implemented, so many pixels are rendered as black.

Text also does not display because of stubbed VGA pixel masking functionality.


What was not tested

Nothing really.  It's just a simple display of the 8bit (mode 19) VGA palettes.

Hardware tested


  • GPU:
  • Driver:

Additional Comments

patch does exist to give full default palette.
