Geforce 2 mx win98 driver version

Postby Baoran » 2018-12-06 @ 16:26

Same pc as in this thread viewtopic.php?f=63&t=63955
it has Geforce 2 MX and 2 voodoo2 cards. Directx 7.0a and win98se
I read many threads here and people seemed to recommend 45.23 for older games in win98, but for some reason I don't have direct3D working if I install that driver version.
With newer driver 77.72, direct3D works fine, but I would like to use older driver for compatibility with older win98 games.
Any ideas how to get older drivers working?

Is there any specific driver version you would recommend me trying that would have good performance and compatibility?

He just said one.

Also the earliest one should ever go, if ever, is 12.41. Any version before that is "hahaa nvidia make bad driver !! nvidia's a suck!!!"

He just said slightly older than the one I mentioned so that is why I asked if someone had experience with specific earlier driver version.
