  1. This was about 9x non-WDM drivers. There are several versions of the WDM. First partial implementation was included in Win95 OSR2.1. WDM versions: Windows 98: 1.0 Windows Me: 1.05 Windows 2000: 1.10 Drivers for WDM v1.1 are usually incompatible with older versions because older WDM have no support for many features, like using MMX or SSE instructions or Hardware Acceleration (except for Sound in Win98SE)...

  3. 7950GT is faster then 7800GTX. 7900GTO is faster then 7950GT. 7900GTX is faster then 7900GTO. -------------------------------------------- 7950 GX2 is a 2 x 7950GT but only one half is working in win98, so basically this is 1 7950GT with 50MHz lower core clock speed. 7950 GX2 is a good card but i think there is no benefits from GX2 cards for 9x users, but if you allready have one you won't have to puchase other card.
  4. The patch can be started in windows. Going into dos mode is not needed. For fresh WinMe installation just limit memory pages in C:\Windows\system.ini and system can start without patch. [386Enh] MaxPhysPage=40000 you can edit your system.ini from your WindowsMe boot disk using (CD letter):\tools\oldmsdos\qbasic.exe Of course that's only if you have a cd drive, othewise you need to make a bootable usb...

  6. All useful software during that era (9x-2003) wasn't free. However, there were a trial versions. So, try this -> Old Camtasia it is 30 trial version... Good luck.
  7. Revolution Pack setup a System-wide hook. KernelEx too, just different methods. So, at some point cross redirection happens, i guess...
  8. Steam is needed for Half-Life 2, and there is no legal way to play it without Steam. But Steam is not necessary for Half-Life (1), Blue Shift and Opposing Force, you just need to find the retail CD, search for Sierra Half-Life BestSeller Series or Sierra Half-Life Generation Bundle...
  9. @Bruninho No problems with the profiles and address bar. Bookmarks not working.
  10. If you possess a cygwin installer and local copies of cygwin packages you can select which package to install. And yes, this version is newer than Cygwin-Lite. A customer asked me to port some software to 9x platform for in-house use, so i use it to recompile that software...
  11. nope, just KernelEx with upd v20 compatibility option set to xp sp2, it works even on 98fe.
  12. it's too big for upload, however there is a compact version with 400+ packages included. https://github.com/whitone/cygwin-easy/releases/tag/2007.03.21 To make it work on 9x system: 1) Download Cygwin-Easy-2007.03.21.iso and extract(cygwin folder only) to C:\ 2) Goto C:\cygwin, create cygwin.bat @echo off C: chdir C:\cygwin\bin bash --login -i 3) Create shortcut on desktop to cygwin.bat (Cmd line: C:\Windows\Command.com /E:4096 /c C:\cygwin\cygwin.bat) 4) Open MS-DOS Prompt and type: subst P: C:\ Now cygwin can be started... Good luck.
  13. So, you're looking for an additional compatibility layer?
