[SDL] XKobo - update 2

  A friend of mine have written a runtime patch that works on Borland Pascal
7 (DOS target only) and Turbo Pascal 7. It's called delayfix.
  Since I don't remember the exact address, and the exe is tiny, I post it
with this mail. If for some reason you don't trust me, you can always get it
from it's server webpage at http://royale.zerezo.com (french site), or
simply go to google.com.

Best regards,

The RTL bug makes the program terminate saying something like "runtime
error 201".

However, when using WinNT or Win2k for something like this, you also have
to make sure that you're running the program as Administator (or other
user with direct hardware access rights), or the graphics and sound can't
work. (The game sets up the screen in a 320x232x256 Mode-X resolution,
and then uses hardware scrolling - both require directly touching the VGA

It's a runtime patch.
