SuperVGA ScreenBlanker : By David Wolfe using Turbo C++

This program will draw some nice lines up to 2000 and then do a
clear screen. It draws in 256 colors and it makes a nice ScreenBlanker
as it will keep clearing the screen.
After a keypress it stops and freezes the screen if you have a color
printer and would like to save it. One more keypress to DOS.
The program will detect your card and go to the best mode, it DOES
NOT know if your monitor can do that mode, it does look at the ram
on your video card, but if your monitor cannot DO that high you
must set it from command line.
This program does not look for a MultiFrequency monitor...
Modes from command line are the following.....
You DO NOT have to type the "0x"

  1. Very nice! Thank you for this wonderful archive. I wonder why I found it only now. Long live the BBS file archives!

  2. This is so awesome! 😀 I’d be cool if you could download an entire archive of this at once, though.

  3. But one thing that puzzles me is the “mtswslnkmcjklsdlsbdmMICROSOFT” string. There is an article about it here. It is definitely worth a read:
