TH>how to load 640x480x16 (I think), but 320x200x256 is impossible.

Actually very simple...

        'Save ...

        SCREEN 13
        DEF SEG = &h0A000
        Bytes% = &h0FA00   ' 64000 bytes (= some negative #)
        BSAVE "VGASCR13.DAT", 0, Bytes%

        'Load ...

        SCREEN 13
        DEF SEG = &H0A000
        BLOAD "VGASCR13.DAT", 0

Screen 13 is a liner bitmap of 64,000 bytes at A000:0000 to A000:F9FF

Hope this helps.
