  1. @Wunderbar98 - Roy's package adds support for additional ciphers such as ChaCha20-Poly1305 and a SHA384-based cipher; it doesn't just enable a couple existing about:config settings by default. A couple screenshots of the ciphers listed in my updated installation's about:config are below. Roy's forked RetroZilla repo is here (different patches are stored as separate "branches"): https://github.com/roytam1/RetroZilla "Pull requests" page for rn10950's repo with requests by Roy that haven't yet been merged: https://github.com/rn10950/RetroZilla/pulls
  2. The comparison is actually ~29.7 MiB vs. ~33.8 MiB looking at the uncompressed size of Roy's updated 7z package vs. the official 2.2 ZIP package, respectively. The official package includes some additional executables and DLLs compared to Roy's package. To at least some degree, this is evidently due to Roy's retrozilla.exe being statically linked with various libraries (~9 MiB in size) while the official 2.2 retrozilla.exe is dynamically linked (and is 156 KiB in size); note that Roy's package is missing most of the DLLs in the "components" folder. Static linking can carry less overall size ov
  3. Regarding NVIDIA ForceWare drivers for NT 4.0: 77.56 is the last "Quadro certified" release, but the last of the "regular" releases is 77.72. The problem with the control panel software is that it is just another example of shoddy software from a Microsoft-kool-aid-drinking developer that expects you to have crap like IE installed just to use your video drivers. I highly recommend *not* bloating an NT 4 installation with invasive Microsoft frameworks like IE to cater to such crapware. In this case it only really needs the following (the first two should preferably be added before installing th
  4. I haven't tried the RetroZilla package on its own myself but would think it would run fine. The chief advantage I know of to just extracting it over an existing 2.2 installation is that, assuming you used the 2.2 EXE installer, you'd still have the desktop and Start Menu shortcuts provided by the installer. You'd have to ask Roy about the differences in which files are included versus the official 2.2 release. It doesn't appear that rn10950 has made any changes to the GitHub source repository since releasing 2.2, so any differences would more or less be Roy's fixes and updates. I extracted the
  5. Regarding TLS in RetroZilla, note that Roytam1 released an unofficial build of RetroZilla with updated cipher support earlier this year: http://o.rths.ml/gpc/files1.rt/retrozilla-suite-tls12-20200131.7z You can extract the contents of this over an existing RetroZilla 2.2 installation to update it. This update appears to also make the about:config additions to manually enable certain ciphers unnecessary (those entries were no longer highlighted in bold after I installed the update). Roy also released a copy of K-Meleon 1.5.4 with the same updated cipher support; you can also extr
  6. Don't have a 2000 system handy at this time, but on Vista one disables the "Use personalized menus" setting under the classic Start Menu customization settings.
  7. If there aren't compatible official drivers available for your SATA/AHCI controller, or you would prefer a "generic" solution, check out UniATA.
