Ah, ha! Most of the programs I run are mine, on a 4000. I had not attempted to
run the demo on the A3K because I was told that the minimum colours were 256.
Although I can see reasonable colours with my default 8, 16 colours is nicer.
I won't be running the demo very often, but now I know better what it takes to
get some colours working.

I am using the A3K's VGA port, so my res is not too low.

To start, I doubled the width & height, but I use PAL, so all I really needed
to do was make the screen taller.

Use what you have... it seems to work.
