Very cool! Does your above patch with the higher VESA modes also support the mpxplay sound drivers? If it doesn't, are you able to post a compiled binary (with the necessary DJGPP modifications) of Q2.EXE which does include that support?

If this can be backported to Quake DOS and / or Hexen 2, that will make it even more wonderful.
