Nicht Sehr Gut and others: Again, thank you very much for your replies. By messed-up display, I just mean the colour palette isn't right. Checked bios. All settings seemed to be just right. I have tried three different detonator revisions to no avail. Also I tried both games under DosBox. Both of them displayed correctly but alas, deathbringer hardlock Dosbox. I presume both of them run just fine under pure DOS, though.
Oh, and another thing, that may be a little off-topic but I've seen Internal Speaker sounds play through my regular speakers when using Dosbox. Is there any way to accomplish the same using VDMSound? VladR?
[Nicht Sehr Gut]: About the VESA issue. Yes I have heard about it and I am not pleased at all because just a month ago dismissed my ATi Radeon 9000 (great VESA support btw) for my current Creative GeForce4 Ti4200. Does anyone have any clue what may be causing this. A bios issue? I have been unable to find any bios updates. A link would be really appreciated.
To finish off. A question for everyone. Do you have Write Combining enabled or disabled under WinXP?
