Simcity and it's install script don't detect EGA anymore.
Not a big deal, because you can force it, but if another
game uses the same method to detect the video mode,
it could become one (big deal).

    Note that the debug output is

    Writing 0F to undefined port 03B4
    Reading from undefined port 03B5
    Writing 66 to undefined port 03B5

    Which is exactly the same as in bug [ 603477 ].

    Neither does "Great Courts 2", I think. It reports
    "unsupported feature" just before entering EGA mode.

    Fixed ega detection, no longer gives warning at startup.
