The next version of Lady Heather has support for some bigger screen sizes.
 Unfortunately the graphics library used cannot enter an arbitrary full
screen video mode.  It needs to know what the screen res is before it can
set a full screen video mode.  

It can create a window of arbitrary size.  If the window is smaller than the
screen size,  it looks OK.  If it is bigger than the native screen size,
 the window gets downscaled into an unreadable blob.

The question is what is the maximum full screen resolution of your video
monitor?   If there is some consensus on screen sizes in use,  I can
optimize the code for maximum natural goodness...
