Re: ATI Graphics Solution

Only CGA, EGA, Tandy/PCjr and AT&T 6300 were ever used in games afaik. Don't forget about Hercules, and not just the original HGC - there is at least one game with support for Hercules In Color. Also, there's a game using BGI, which contains the PC3270 BGI driver - it's an amateurish game, so I …
