There are some caveats though. The UI code needs to be updated to not

to be removed.

If by 8-bit graphics mode, you mean support for output to 8-bit
screens, removing that is fine.

Or do you mean (also) 8-bit intermediate formats used by Atari
monochrome and VDI mode conversions?

I meant the case where the SDL backing surface is 8bit indexed mode. So that implies the 8-bit intermediate formats as well. It would simplify the code quite a bit to remove that mode, but it is possible to keep it in at a cost of more complex code.

IIRC Thomas told some weeks ago he wanted to drop 8 bit mode to only keep 16 and 24 bit mode.
