I believe this attempts to set screen-mode 13 (I'm surprised this
isn't a hex constant, though that may be a (Q)Basic quirk), which
for older VGA cards was 320x200 with 256-colors. It then looks
like it sets a point at (160,100 = the middle of the screen) in
Ah, back in the days where each application had to maintain the
screen itself, and you had to use hacks to get square pixels (the
320x200 in this mode had a non-square aspect-ratio) in Mode-X.
Can't say I miss it much beyond nostalgia.
