Hi, there's a Windows 3.1 driver at vogonsdrivers. It should work for 2D on Windows 98, too.
http://www.vogonsdrivers.com/getfile.ph ... ustate=1,0

A generic driver for Win95/98 and Trio32 with 365/366 chips can be found here:

Thanks for that link! I remember that site, too. For some reason it did disappear years ago.
I'm surprised the Wayback machine has kept an intact copy with files.
More than often, things like that aren't working because of robots.txt, etc.

S3 still hosts driver downloads on their website, weirdly. http://www.s3graphics.com/en/drivers/legacy_software_archive.aspx

It sometimes works, but only for files under 1MB. If its over, then you get damaged file....But its life saver when looking for info about cards from mid 90s. Most companies ended before 2000....

For example you can download even drivers for Ark Logic Tiger 3D, but i thought that it was never released.....maybe im wrong...

They have also animated logo for it :-) Image

Wow, interesting.

Both WinDVD (around 2001) and Ziff-Davis 3D WinBench 2000 claim they've tested on ARK Logic 8100 (Tiger 3D) so perhaps there was a pre-release? Never seen photos of it tho. (There's a guy on LinkedIn who put the Tiger 3D on his resume.)

A copy of the drivers you found exists on DriverGuide.

Hey, I remember that character! (^_^)
I think it was also part of a cartoon show, where a kid (named Billy ?) got transformed into a cat by a magician or so.
