-====== Games - Video/Audio modes and extra functionality ====== 
-In the wild west of x68000 game development,​ there doesn'​t seem to be much in the way of standards across games. This can include switching to 31Khz or turning on MIDI audio or different controls. Luckily someone [[https://​vintagecpu.wordpress.com/​2010/​12/​31/​switching-resolution-for-x68000-vga/​|before me]] has gone through and documented much of this very important information,​ so important that it would be a shame for it to disappear one day. This page serves the purpose of a backup, and an extension of this information.
