Some ddraw applications need a custom pixelformat. This is for some reason
tolerated by nvidia and ati drivers, but doesn't work with the refrast or on
matrox cards. We need a test to find out how nvidia and ati deal with that.
Maybe they use R5G6B5 like the patch does, or they really use the R5X6G5 format
this app tries to use and we may need to convert the surface. (Explanation
kindly copy&pasted together from Stefan Dösinger.)
