  1. This will only fix sites using CAcert, there are hundreds of certificates out there, and each and every one pops up that it can't be trusted under Firefox It happens on pretty much every site I visit. Didn't test Firefox 3 yet.

    No. You want to record games or desktop? For games use Fraps 1.9D, alongside an audio recorder (Fraps 1.9D does not record sound), like Audacity, then combine the audio and video in the software of choice. For desktop, old version of CamStudio seems to work apparently. Don't have any experience with recording desktop on 98SE, I usually capture using an USB Grabber, as that's much better, albeit not free
  3. So this fixes the certificate popups while using Firefox or any other browser? Never used this tool. I've tried rootsupd.exe but this doesn't fix the problem, I though that's all what was needed.
  4. Optical Drive code?
  5. Why use Win 9x on new PCs in 2013?

    Only if the programs are made with rloew's API. I'm still waiting for a 98SE source code leak, Russians, where are you? We can add hacks, stubs, new API's on top of the existing 1999 files, but for how long?
  6. Win9x WebTV Stream

    Is that malware from recent years? Or old malware that is not commonly found on the new Web, unless specifically looking for it? I'm talking about executables, other types are exploited no matter what OS you're running.
  7. X-Wing game crashing to desktop Win98SE

    Try these solutions: 1. Limit the RAM to 512MB, put MaxPhysPage=20000 in the [386enh] section in the C:\Windows\System.ini file 2. Use older drivers, not 81.98, but 45.23, you can find them here: http://download.nvidia.com/Windows/45.23/45.23_win9x_english.exe The uninstaller from 81.98 drivers does not work, you should be able to install them anyways.
  8. DirectPlay 9.0c & Intel PRO/1000 GT on 98SE

    Well, when I install 98SE with 98lite using the Chubby option, my DxDiag also hangs on DirectPlay, and on the next startup, asks if you want to skip DirectPlay in DxDiag. Try installing 98SE normally without 98lite.
  9. DirectPlay 9.0c & Intel PRO/1000 GT on 98SE

    Try to find older drivers ,https://www.driverguide.com might help, it's a good site now, unlike it was years ago. It can show INF files inside the drivers, so you can check if they will work with your device ID. Also try installing older DirectX, like 8.1 and not 9.0c. (that is if no of your games use 9.0c) (probably needs a reinstall of the system) If everything fails, best bet is to buy very cheap generic Realtek/3COM PCI NIC's.
  10. Need help with Config.sys and Autoexec.bat

    If we can patch/hack/port all DOS/W9x games onto modern systems, why would we run DOS/W9x in the first place? Why would the retro thing (1999 PC's and earlier) grow into popularity in the recent years? People have interest in running original hardware and original software.
  11. YouTube WORKING! With Opera 12.02

    Well, when I had an AMD Athlon 64 3000+ back in 2015 , YouTube Flash player did work better on it.
  12. YouTube WORKING! With Opera 12.02

    http://kernelex.sourceforge.net/wiki/Opera Opera 12.02 is probably THE MOST modern browser you can run. YouTube works, because it's using the HTML5 player, which Opera 12.02 supports. YouTube DOES NOT have the flash player version any more, it was removed. Now, the flash player version did work better on slower machines. Since it was removed, people are not happy with the performance of the HTML5 player under Opera.
  13. PCI/XXXX is the HD Audio Bus/physical device. This is the only thing that 9x sees. HDAUDBUS/XXXX is the ID/virtual device generated by the HD Audio Bus, when the HD Audio Bus drivers is installed. (available from Win2000 onwards) Do not confuse HD Audio Bus driver with the HD Audio driver. I do not have the knowledge to know if the HDAUDBUS/XXXX is actually necessary for proper function of HD Audio, but it seems it is not required judging by the watler's driver. It's installed in the same way as the Win3.1 PC Speaker driver, which people was using back in the day in their 9x systems. The INF created by @deomsh does nothing more than copying the files and making the line in the system.ini file. @MERCURY127 did you load up the HDATSR.EXE file before installing/using the driver? Did DOS boxes work for you? (seems similar to the VBEMP bug) Do you use HIMEMX.EXE? I will test the driver myself soon.
  14. Wow! Could this be the next major breakthrough in 98SE history?
  15. I'm eager to test HD Audio! What's a 16-bits HDA driver? Does it have something to do with MPXPlay?
