  1. I've been using a USB sound card, the sound works fine. Just about anything that supports USB Audio Class 1.0 would work straight out of the box with no additional drivers, including modern USB sound cards (as long as they don't support audio quality better than 96KHz - this is the biggest difference between USB Audio Class 1.0 and 2.0). Haven't tried any period-appropriate soundcards.
  2. Can confirm, it runs on Windows 2000 with KernelEX after modifying mozglue.dll and xul.dll. Here are the instructions I used.
  3. You know how you could use palemoon-based Mypal on Windows 2000 with KernelEX? Well, it turns out you can use Mypal 68 on Windows 2000 too, after some modifications: http://mrqash.blogspot.com/2022/04/mypal-68-firefox-68121-on-windows-2000.html And by the way, we got a fresh release just now!
  4. Great find! I can run it on my Win2000 laptop now. Unfortunately on Win98 it still errors out with "Can't load XPCOM". No other errors though.
  5. There is a way to remove the white layer at the top - just add the following to userChrome.css: #TabsToolbar { background-color: transparent !important; background-image: none !important; }
  6. I'm running it on metal, actually. Downloaded the latest version (KU211123.7z), renamed core.25g to core.ini, replaced the files in C:\Windows\KernelEx with the new ones and the system works without issues. After adding the old stubs (I did the lazy thing and just added Kexstubs.ini in core.ini instead of manually adding the stubs to Kstub824.ini) the browsers work fine, too. Looks like the memory leak issue is fixed (or at least I haven't encountered it yet). Haven't tried doing it on a fresh install, but I always install all the necessary drivers first and KernelEx at the very end.
  7. Tried it out on 98SE, was able to boot without problems (my MSVCRT.dll is 6.10.9848.0). Unfortunately any Firefox versions (and other Gecko/Goanna-based browsers) that were working before didn't start. I tried adding Kexstubs in CORE.ini, but after that they all started crashing on start, with problem being, apparently, kexbasen.dll, address 0167:7d011b65. Replacing it with the one from version 24 didn't do anything, so I reverted back for now.
  8. Yes, Youtube is very bloated. Javascript galore. I suggest using Invidious - an alternative, much more lightweight Youtube front-end. I was able to watch videos in 480p without stuttering on a weaker computer - a netbook with Intel Atom N270 and i945GME. Speaking of youtube, I wasn't able to get any sound from it on my Win98 VirtualBox VM, in SB16 or AC97 mode. And It's probably not a VirtualBox problem, because everything works fine on an XP VM.
  9. On further testing it turned out that simply creating an empty text file, naming it "search.json", replacing the original search.json with it and marking it as "read only" works too.
  10. I noticed that whenever I open Mypal without a profile folder and it generates a profile folder for the first time, address bar always works. But when I open the browser any other time, it stops working. Setting search.json to "read only" didn't help. But then I copied "search.json.mozlz4" from my SeaMonkey profile folder to my Mypal profile, renamed it as "search.json", set it to "read only", opened Mypal, and then address bar worked as it should. Never had a problem with it since then. Weird, but I'll take it. No, it was "direct2d1.1,cairo". I set it to "skia", glitched are now gone. Thanks! As for what happened to Mypal, there is a nice QRD on this whole situation (albeit with some harsh language at times) here. Looks like Feodor2 is just done with this clown show Pale Moon devs are pulling against him.
  11. I haven't been following the thread for a while, only now caught up to it. Tried it out, Firefox 52.9 ESR works, no graphical glitches. Mypal works too, but with minor graphical glitches in the UI and address bar not working. Pity about what happened to Mypal. We were just about to get a somewhat-regularly updating browser that works on Windows 98, for the first time in a decade, too.
  12. If USB works then you can go the USB audio route instead.
  13. AFAIK Acer Veriton N260G uses ALC662 chip, which should have native Windows 2000 drivers. Try these. Also try installing Extended Core v16e, it should let you install some XP drivers.
  14. What's the error code? You'll probably need to slipstream a SATA driver. Try one of these: http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/813816.html
  15. I changed the link, should be OK now. Also you'll need to install them manually in Device Manager, and when installing the drivers Windows would ask for NvCplSetupInt.exe, you can get it from 32bit XP version of the driver: https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/96076/en-us
  16. It will work, but you'll need to slipstream the SATA driver from here: http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/844979.html Not sure if ACPI would work with it, but you can try replacing your ACPI.SY_ with this .CAB file: http://win2k.org/cgi-bin/dl.cgi?file=acpi.cab Also your GPU should work with these drivers (359.06), but you'll need to install KernelEx + Extended Core v16a first: http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/1114373.html
  17. Try installing KernelEx and Extended Core v16a. This should allow you to use a lot of Windows XP drivers.
  18. After some .inf file editing I managed to get my onboard Asmedia ASM2142 USB 3.1 controller to work with Windows 2000. I tested the drivers with ASM2142, but, generally speaking, they should work with devices with the following detection IDs: PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1040 PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1041 PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1042 PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1142 PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1240 PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1241 PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1242 PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_1343 PCI\VEN_1B21&DEV_2142 Additional testing would be greatly appreciated. Important: you must have KernelEx and Extended Core v16a installed before installing the drivers! Windows will BSOD on boot if you install the drivers without them. ASMedia_USB_1.16.41.3.rar
  19. It's possible, as long as you don't mind running it without ACPI. But you'll need drivers for your onboard SATA controller. Try this one: http://blog.livedoor.jp/blackwingcat/archives/813816.html I managed to install and run Windows 2000 on a Z370 machine, in a dualboot setup.
  20. Made a fresh Win2000 install, installed KernelEx, then installed the driver - it didn't work. But then I found extended core 16a, installed that, and on reboot the driver worked!
  21. My 7800GTX only had 256MB. I replaced the original 77.72 NVCORE.VXD with the patched one before installing it, didn't try to use the unpatched one.
  22. I'm currently trying to get GeForce GT 710 to work with Windows 2000. I installed blackwingcat's KernelEx v30f as well as extended core v12a, but when I try to install BWC's NVIDIA driver v359.06 (by manually installing nv4_dispi.inf in Hardware Manager), all I get is Error Code 31. What am I doing wrong?
  23. Not sure if that’s what it’s about, but here’s what I found: https://community.microfocus.com/t5/DevPartner-Knowledge-Base/Automatic-Unloading-of-VxDs/ta-p/1740946
  24. http://www.mdgx.com/add.htm#DDK Complete Windows 98/98 SE DDK + DOCs (make sure to check out READ1ST!.TXT before installing): http://www.mdgx.com/spx/98DDK.RAR
  25. Doesn't seem like it. I tried, every version after 52 ESR gave me errors. But, unless you need WebExtensions, that's hardly a problem, because Mypal and the latest version of Roytam1's Basilisk/UXP run fine (with Basilisk/UXP being more stable of the two). I know I'm late with this, but I think the best option would be going with an external firewall (basically a tiny, Intel NUC-like, PC with UTM software running on it, acting as a pass-through filter between the internet and the home network), outsourcing the antivirus work to a separate machine.
