I'm understanding it less and less. On my system that famous highest bit
doesn't do anything. If I have installed centscreen.prg in my autofolder
the extended resolution is used (if set), if I haven't, the standard
screen resolution is used. Always. It's as simple as that. I can start
XaAES and set the highest bit with the -fvideo option, or I can unset that
bit. But it doesn't have any effect, and seems to be ignored.

Am I doing something wrong, or didn't anyone REALLY try it with a Falcon
CT2 and XaAES ?
