in PC Emulation
I don't see much sense in trying to approximate the "look and feel" of the old BIOSes, but that's also a possibility. Whaddaya mean you don't want lurid green and purple menus? lol I actually think that from a purely aesthetic pov it could be great (consider the talent in the demoscene!), it's just …

Re: SeaBIOS booting progress on 86Box!

I might be wrong but SeaBIOS doesn't seem very DOS/Win9x oriented. The original BIOSes *should* be a safe bet in terms of compatibility I wouldn't be surprised if I heard that the SeaBIOS developers aren't all that interested in DOS/Win9x, but I can't recall too many problems with Qemu + SeaBIOS …

I got WineD3D For Windows dll's. Should I place it in game folder and install DirectX9 in Windows98? Or place in Windows\System folder? Maybe you got this sorted already, but check README.txt. They go to game folder, but for DirectX1-7 some file editing is also needed. @Sandi1987: Have you tried …
