For windowed mode, if the screen is >= 15bit, ditch pen allocation and use RPTAG_APenColor and RPTAG_BPenColor.

Thats my plan. The graphics code needs an overhaul and I need to switch to AHI for audio.

For now full screen mode gives a much better experience anyway.

Great stuff! I find it rather useless myself (I'm not into emulations much--my own fault) but I do like it when people are putting their systems to good use.
