REQUIREMENTS:

  -  The MIPrefs-program from aminet/util/misc/MonSpecsMUI.lha
  -  DBLPal-monitor-driver from AmigaOS3.1 (OS3.9 works also)

DESCRIPTION:

  For some years I've been using DBLPAL Highres
  No Flicker 720x564 thanx to some hacks I found on
  Aminet. I thought this was the absolute maximum.

       But recently I happend to chat with a dude on a
  Swedish Amiga IRC-channel. He said that he'd got
  738x566 with help of a program named 'PatchOverscan',
  also found on Aminet.
                          I tried that, but I didn't
  succeed to get that view. It made it possible 2 change
  the overscan limits of NOMINAL MAXIMUM and VIDEO to
  whatever values. I donno, I maybe did something wrong :P

       Anyway, then I found a program named 'MonSpecsMUI'
  also on Aminet, similar to MonED, that gives access to
  monitorsettings and also overscanlimits and much more.

        I increased the overscanlimits so I could later
  increase text-overscan in SYS:Prefs/Overscan further.

        I used 'Save and quit'-button in the MonSpecsMUI-
  program.

  I put this two lines somewhere after IPrefs in my
  S:Startup-Sequence

  SYS:Prefs/Overscan USE
  MIPrefs

  Then I executed SYS:Prefs/Overscan and maximized the
  text-overscan to the limits I sat earlier with the
  MonSpecsMUI-program. Then I saved the new Overscan
  prefs and Rebooted.

  After that I got a 825x564 Workbench Screen 

  Perhaps it's possible 2 stretch it some more.
  I don't know :)

It works fine for me but and I should work for you but...
  I'M NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMEGES CAUSED BY THIS SOFTWARE
  OR BY THE INFORMATION AND INSTRUCTIONS!


INSTALLATION:

  Copy all the files in DblPal_ME/ to your Sys: respective directories
  and keep the VGAOnly and VGAOnly.info in your Sys:Devs/Monitors/
  Maybe it works, but I havn't test without it.

  Copy the file 'MIPrefs' to C: from the 'MonSpecsMUI.lha'-archive that
  can be found on Aminet.
  
  Make a backup of your old files before if you think you'll need them
  in the future. Copy them to a any place you prefer.

  Put this lines in your S:Startup-Sequence somewhere after IPrefs

  SYS:Prefs/Overscan USE
  MIPrefs

  The MIPrefs-program comes from 'MonSpecsMUI.lha' on Aminet. It's not
  included in this archive so you have to download it yourselfe.
  It's needed!

  Then just reboot.

  If it's not working for any strange reason, please read the manuals
  of MonSpecsMUI and MIPrefs.

  Good luck!

ABOUT MY MACHINE:

  Amiga1200 with Blizzard 1260 and a 20" PHILIPS SVGA monitor.
  Kickstart 3.1
  OS3.9 (it should work with OS3.1 as well, but I have not checked)
