Re: HELP! - GeForce FX5600 in win98se

I would suggest discussing this issue in more detail (less unfounded). What specific games (give at least a few titles) do you think won't run on the GeForce FX with the faster 56.56 driver, but will run smoothly with the slower 45.23 driver? I would like to just check, test and try to find …

Re: HELP! - GeForce FX5600 in win98se

Unfortunately further testing revealed that drivers past 45.23 have bad Windows 98 games compatibility and cannot be recommended. 5x.x caused Thief 2 to crash. With 8x.x many old EA sports games crashed. For some games there may be fixes in config or patches but not a general solution. 45.23 has …

Re: HELP! - GeForce FX5600 in win98se

Also, I would like to touch upon such a parameter as "video output delay", which in NT systems we usually measure using tools such as "DPC Latency Checker" or "LatencyMon". Unfortunately, I did not find such tools for Windows 9x (If anyone here suddenly knows such tools, please let me know). …

Re: HELP! - GeForce FX5600 in win98se

To those searching for best drivers for FX5600 this may be of interest. I tested a few driver versions on my PIII 900, 440BX, Windows 98. The fastest driver is 53.04, however I cannot comment on game compatibility vs the well known 45.23. I tested drivers using 3D Mark 99, 3D Mark 2000, 3D Mark …

Re: Geforce 7 series backwards compatibility

Now, after searching, I found the RadEdit program: https://radeon.ru/bios/util/radedit/eng/ for modifying ATI vBIOS, which, starting from version 1.1, seems to allow you to set the refresh rate in DOS (Did not check): Filename RadEdit.PNG File size 16.91 KiB Views 73 views

Re: Geforce 7 series backwards compatibility

Ok, dynamic loading is fine. And is there some tool to mod vbios refresh rate? Or did it already someone hacked manually? How the data structure in vbios looks? I've come across this method as a recommendation for video card owners from ATI (Who wanted to change 60hz on their CRT monitors). …

Re: Geforce 7 series backwards compatibility

I don't know if there is some freq. table that is used by vbios during init. But even if yes, it would not be good idea as many LCDs can't sync over 60-70Hz and you can get a WTF moment after some years you will forget that you did that mod :) It is possible to use such a modified vBIOS, at a hard- …

Re: Geforce 7 series backwards compatibility

Apparently, the 7900GS is something very special... I just checked the vBIOS data with the 7950GT (G71) and saw the same results as with the G70 yesterday! Namely, the message about 3GB, a black screen when starting games, as well as UNIRFRSH freezing when trying to autoconfigure (If you are reading …

Re: Geforce 7 series backwards compatibility

I have a 7950GT PCI-E and tomorrow I will also try to test both found vBIOS. Although the performance of the 7950GT is not the goal of the experiment for me, since the G71 no longer works with ForceWare 77.72 (and newer ones cause problems). I'm using G70 based graphics cards which are supported by …

Re: Geforce 7 series backwards compatibility

With a deeper comparison, the vBIOS you posted converges also in terms of frequencies, as well as revisions. It seems that this is it (I saw your message after I left mine). My question is: if we consider alternative solutions to the problem, is it possible to hard-set the output frequency somewhere …

Re: UniRefresh no longer works on nVidia's latest

in DOS
I also encountered this problem, but I did not find a universal solution. Unfortunately, there is still no comparison table of all existing VBE 3.0 compatible video cards, which would reflect UniRefresh support and vBIOS version. I experimented with different cards and UniRefresh worked great with …
