Someday we need to learn how to write manuals that people
can actually understand. ;-)  z26 defaults to the faster
8 bpp modes.  If you want to use a full-screen mode with
the same colour depth as your desktop, you need to use video
modes -v20 to -v28.  In these modes the phosphor effect works
just as nicely as on the windowed modes.
