@SqualStrife - thanks, i but i really thing that is would be better to upload it unpacked per file, so traffic would be smaller and in future other would be able easily add versions which i wasnt able to find.

Got it Thanks !
Is too big for me to upload to the library, need an ftp login.

You can use the "Get FTP Login" link on the left.

Then connect with the credentials shown on the page that loads, and upload your files.

Then use the "Process FTP Uploads" link on the left to add them to the database.

@ruthan I uploaded the ATi driver collection for you. Cheers! 😀

Thanks ! I did not know that. Thought I would have to ask you for FTP access.

@SquallStrife - I wonder are you willing to host some Windows 98 updates pack or you are afraid of MS?
Because WIndows 98 internet update is no more working and there are some update packs etc, but they are quite aggressive, so i made some old repack with possibility to install it one by one, grouping - official / unofficial packs in different folders and some special folder for updates, which dont give you possibility to get update info without installing, some better filesName (description for some what it si updating) etc.

It sounds interesting, however going in to service packs and OS updates kind of opens a floodgate, one that I don't have the HDD space to handle right now!!

I'm looking at opening up a Patreon campaign soonish. If it gets to the right level of funding, I can move the site to a bigger server, which will give us TONNES of HDD space to play with. However, right now we are rather limited in that regard.

Thing to watch out for with the updates are the ones that can't be used without paying Microsoft for post EOL support and tracking to make sure those don't get uploaded would be a chore. For those you'd be better off uploading to Internet Archive.

Something else to consider is as oppossed to drivers if you start hosting updates for all versions of Windows then that's going to be alot more bandwidth versus just hosting drivers.

What i want to do it really only some repack of Autopatcher, to make it possible to install selectively.

Autopatcher is still on some not obscure sites like Majorgeeks, Softpedia, Download.com so it not seems to be under MS radar at least for now.

When i extracted just official and official patches and added some runtimes and pack it with 7zip it still has 70 MB.. With few more, patches and runtimes (VBruntimes, C++,.Net, few codecs,ASPI etc) i would be ~100 MB, nothing big.

Autopatcher is too aggresive by default and its aimed more toward new programs compatibility, not what we need for gaming and for old games compatibility. MDGX - http://www.mdgx.com/upd98me.php is too modern possible oriented and always when i look into it, its making PhD from Win9x.

The 2004 Microsoft Update CD is already on vogonsdrivers. I don't see a need to have updates on there separately as that CD should have everything for Win98 already besides the unofficial updates.

I just discovered the most awesomest utility to bulk download files from web.archive.org

It is the Wayback Machine Downloader:
https://github.com/hartator/wayback-machine-downloader

No more having to download files one-by-one. MWAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!

Autopatcher is from 2007 +2008 to there would be some delta.

There are some advantages:
1) You can test how system behave only with some set of updates and check if everything is ok.
2) Its Windows 98 so not every update (especially unofficial ones) would be better and you install bunch of them good luck to find which one is bad one..
3) When you install one by one, you can check description and install something what actually make sense for you.

I'm not sure where to put this ….. but I recently found my original installation disk for my sounbalster live 5.1 card. Its a SB0100 .
Before I found it I had used every iso and driver on this forum, but none were like this one. The original CD wont install because of all the scratches, but I managed to copy all the files and create a new install cd that works great.

I think some people might really benefit from this one. It gives the option to use VXD or MWD drivers. Its a great install cd if you have a 5.1 card. How would I get it as part of the database here ?

Here is a picture of the disk

You can upload the image to zippyshare or mediafire so that a mod can grab it and add it to the database. Both websites offer free file hosting and don't require you to register nor create an account.

I'm interested in that CD since I have the exact same model.

I would like to submit these drivers for VMware's SVGA II Device, they are confirmed working via Qemu for Windows or Linux. They work in Windows 98SE and Windows XP VM's. I highly recommend using / emulating a USB mouse and or Tablet while using these. These are VMwares drivers without an installer. Games do not seem to work with these, no DX support in limited testing. However other apps programs work well.

Been a while since I posted, but I'd like to contribute a driver (found this to be a pain to get hold of)

It's for the Saitek Megapad XII MX-631M branded on the back as "MEGA WORLD INTERNATIONAL"

It's a 6 Button PC Gameport Game Pad with a really nice Microswitched D-Pad, and various turbo switches and 2 speeds for the tubro.

Driver is tested and working on my own systems.

I can't seem to download anything from the driver archive. I downloaded a few files a little while ago, now I just get a blank page when I click download links.
The console is reporting error 503, Service Not Available. It's been down for close to an hour now I think.
