Hello

I have picked one old computer from scrap and it is a big suprise: It has Intel Plato motherboard with big memory (32MB ) and SPEA TIGA card.
Name of TIGA card is FGA860.4/HE with Cirrus Logic GD5422 VGA-core (not headland on FGA860 from internet )
Harddisc is not dead. I did back up this HDD and i play with him. Win 3.1 start and runs on TIGA, SPEA Tools runs good.

I did found only one line about TIGA Card in autoexec.bat and nothings in config.sys
"LH c:\spea\gdc\tigacd.exe"

have a luck with their SPEA card.

Greetings
madao

Pinout on 9pole DSUB is ordinary 9 pole VGA
https://old.pinouts.ru/Video/VGA9_pinout.shtml

15pole DSUB = only VGA Core
9pole DSUB = VGA (74Hz timing) and it switched to TIGA, if TIGA runs.

9-15pol adapter, I have just connect RGB & H-V directo to 15pole Adapter.

Have luck with driver and pleas tell me, if you have success.
