Did a major clean-ups of video related functions, and added cursor hook-up in 400 lines 1bpp mode (for whatever reason that applies on the bitmap layer instead of the text layer when in that mode). This greatly improves N88-Nihongo BASIC, making it to be fairly usable now:

Various random snaps thanks to OG's excellent work with upd765 rewrite:











And now, the bad news:
* File Manager doesn't seem to unmount the previous image anymore, so if you try to load anything it throws an "Error: " (undefined? :P)
* soft resetting the system just pukes the floppy image for whatever reason (it doesn't load anything even if the image just loaded fine previously)
* There are various disks that asserts due of this error: "d88_format: Incorrect layout on track 0 head 0, expected_size=100000, current_size=100***", I'll try to update the pc8801.c driver by mentioning them.

Gotta resume this topic since it's relevant:

Made PC-88VA floppy to work (sorta). Had to convert some devices to actually use the internal V50 chips and added slave PIC acknowledge.

I'll snap other pics later once I tackle the absurdity of how the video system works.
