Switcher v1.01 - Windows Video Mode Switcher

What is Switcher?

Switcher is a faster way of changing video modes. This is
very practical for people who routinely switch between 16 and
256 color modes. Setup is a slow and cumbersome process, so
I created Switcher, which is faster (especially when setup has
to copy fonts) and simpler.

How do I use Switcher?

Before you can switch modes, you have to add them to Switcher's
own video mode list. To do this, start Switcher and select
"ADD CURRENT MODE" from the system menu. The current mode will
get added to the list box and the settings will be saved in
SWITCHER.INI (Do not manually edit this file unless you know what
you're doing). Now choose CANCEL. Using the Windows SETUP
utility, select another mode, and choose to restart Windows.
When Windows restarts, run Switcher again and add the current
mode. Repeat this process for all the modes you want to add.
This "teaches" Switcher the settings for each video mode.

Now, when you want to switch modes, run Switcher, select one
of the modes in the list box, and choose either "Restart Windows"
or "Exit To DOS". Switcher will change the video mode, fonts,
drivers, etc..., and either restart Windows or quit Windows

To remove a video mode you no longer use, select it, then choose
"Remove selected mode" from the system menu.

That's all there is to it!
