I think I'll change the default to 16bpp, just too many cards aren't
capable of doing graphics in 32-bit mode.

This is amazing indeed! I didn't know it would support any 3Dfx Voodoo
cards, be it V3 or not and if it does that using software driver only;
it's only more amazing,.. did you see the 3Dfx logo? :)

My fps are only ~10fps using Linux TNT2 drivers and 1152x864 resolution
on PII233.
