I have these two CGA/MDA/Herc cards and I'm looking to try them out once I get my DOS machine running again. I tried both a while ago but they didn't work correctly.
First, the ATI Small Wonder v2. Problem here is, the BIOS chip is missing. Without it, its Hercules mode works correctly with a second VGA card installed. MDA mode won't show any text, however, and on its own it won't boot at all. I'm hoping someone who has this card could make an image of the BIOS for me.
Next, the TECMAR Graphics Master. It looks very interesting, being a full-length six-layer card, jampacked with chips, and I found a magazine ad on google which claims it supports 720x700 interlaced MDA mode. Unfortunately though, I couldn't get it to do anything at all. This card has a gazillion jumper settings which are probably set all wrong and the only documentation I can find (here) is, uh, confusing, to say the least. Does anyone have any more information about it?
