Re: Help to find ChroMetal drivers for S3 cards

What cards was ChroMetal available for? Would it have been provided on a driver CD? Edit: Nevermind about the driver CD. ChroMetal was an unofficial driver. http://web.archive.org/web/20070803112440/http://www.vga.pe.kr/view.php?id=dizn_pds&no=4 From the old official page for Chrometal, here are …
