MM=> How do you  get background of a  certain spot 1,1 for  example? I know
    that to get forground, you should do this: A=SCREEN(1,1,1):A=A AND 15

        Almost the same thing:
                FG = SCREEN(1,1,1) AND 15
                BG = (SCREEN(1,1,1) AND 112)/16
                BLINK = (SCREEN(1,1,1) AND 128)/128
