I've played around with it and this is what I've found.
If you just want to replace the text mode cursor with
another character (with your choice of attributes) this is
all you need.
dim regs as regtype
regs.ax = &hA
regs.bx = 0
scrncharacter% = 0
scrnattribute% = 0
regs.cx = (scrnattribute% * 256) + scrncharacter%
cursorattribute% = 79
cursorcharacter% = 18
regs.dx = (cursorattribute% * 256) + cursorcharacter%
interrupt &h33, regs, regs
