I can only comment on this one: You should not use both, conio and standard C
file I/O to write to the screen. This is true not only for the Atari but for
almost all other platforms. You may get weird effects when doing so. The
reason is - as you suspected - that the conio subsystem may use its own
variables for cursor position, size, state or whatever.
