Re: Pod Gold vs modern PC - 800x600 res?

in Windows
Anyone know how to get the commercial release of Pod Gold to work in 800x600 res? I've tried various patches, adding lines to ubi.ini and the like, but it's always 640x480 res maximum (using nGlide or dgVoodoo).

newbie questions

hi, i'm fairly new to retro PCs. for a Pentium 266 MMX, which slot 1 chipset / specific motherboard is good to pair it with? does slot 1 chipset even have USB port back then? and would a slot 1 motherboard be able to use a PCI voodoo graphics card? is PCI or AGP easier for motherboard compatibility? …
