Ah yes, I see that looks like that will do what I need. Curious as to
why this is a #define and not an enviroment variable like the other

I would think that finding cards (or chips) with broken modes would be
the norm rather than the execption.
     2 Wish list for the 1.3 development branch:
     4  * Use /etc/fb.modes, if available, like GGI does
     5  * Add mousewheel events (new unified event architecture?)
     6  * DirectInput joystick support needs to be implemented
     7  * Be able to enumerate and select available audio and video drivers
     8  * Fullscreen video mode support for MacOS X
     9  * Explicit vertical retrace wait (maybe separate from SDL_Flip?)
    10  * Shaped windows, windows without borders
    11  * Multiple windows, multiple display support
    12  * SDL_INIT_EVENTTHREAD on Windows and MacOS?
    13  * Add a timestamp to events
    14  * Use RDTSC for timer resolution on x86 hardware
    15  * Add audio input API
    16  * Add hardware accelerated scaled blit
    17  * Add hardware accelerated alpha blits
    18  * Redesign blitting architecture to allow blit plugins
    20 In the jump from 1.2 to 1.3, we should change the SDL_Rect members to
    21 int and evaluate all the rest of the datatypes.  This is the only place
    22 we should do it though, since the 1.2 series should not break binary
    23 compatibility in this way.
    25 Requests:
    26  * PCM and CDROM volume control (deprecated, but possible)
