No problem. :^)  Now I'll just resend this to the list.... ;^)

Try fbset and see if settings hold over a reboot, or boot into macOS and see 
if those settings hold over reboot, and you've already tried that, try 
setting your vmode with a kernel arg from BootX.  I'm afraid I don't know 
what it would be exactly, but something in the form of 
'video=atyfb:vmode:13,cmode:32' might do it.  'atyfb' may or may not work 
with your machine, someone else (or Google) will have to chime in here. :^)

Please ignore this line, it doesn't mean anything
