I'm aware of that. The weirdness is that vDOS will let me specify it in config.txt and DOS utilities like FreeDOS mode report I have an 80 column x 50 row screen, and everything *else* I run in DOS that can use a 50 column screen does. G is the only problem child. I'm not sure what it's not seeing that has it confused. The DOS version (built with Watcom C) may be using a BIOS call vDOS doesn't support. I haven't scrutinized the source to see what it's doing.
