Hi !
I just finish to test Alex updates on cvs , and xv is quit better. I
almost can set xv_colorkey (some times works sometimes don't).
Modes videos 800x600 and ... now works better. I got the correct video
but not the mouse, the mouse still act only in old area.

Testing 3D games, quake 3, foobilard and tux race works totally well,
but chromium have the mouse problem on menu screen but works perfectly
on game action.
Hoping not talking to much but this reminds me the timr savage drive,
with via drive I don't had this problem.
At the time, timr claim the drive support some savage ships that is
different of what via claims on his drive support on savage ships,
via has in his list my ship the twister K.
In conclusion the original via savage drive can have the solution of
this is my guess.
