To fix this, I patched in a palette-setting function into the existing video-mode change function. The bytes at offset 0x32C were changed from: 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 90 B8 04 00 CD 10 90 90 to: B8 04 00 CD 10 B4 0B BB 00 01 CD 10 31 DB CD 10 31 C0 This appears to be the correct palette based on gameplay footage on youtube.  I made a twitter thread...

This is the 1983 game Digger by Windmill Software. The existing version on the internet archive has been patched to work on VGA cards, which causes it to display with the wrong palette. This is an earlier version without that patch, and with DOSBox configured to run in CGA-only mode.
