  1. jumper "OffByOne and Dillo are very fast because they don't/can't process most of the complex CSS-based layout. I recently downloaded the source for Dillo and am considering modding it to make a custom MSFN portal." There seems to be a more "recent" fork of Dillo for Windows called D+ Browser. I tried it. Actually, didn't notice the differences, but may be there was something useful updated.
  2. "CPU doesn't matter, any x86-64 CPU works with 98SE, go for the best. " BTW, I wonder about Intel Atom...
  3. You are not telling your processor, please tell us more about your hardware configuration. "NV8269" If you have an older NVidia card, maybe you'll have better performance with older driver. With My GeForce2 I had much better performance with some 45~.xx driver version (don't remamber exact one). As for video playing performance, on one of the forums I saw the following advice about best players for weak PCs on Win98, and this advice is based on significant amount of testing of many players and their versions on 400 MHz CPU. AVI - Gom player 2.1.16.4635 DVD - WinDVD 4.0.B11.457C01 with DVD codecs from WinDVD 7 (non free, not sure if obtainable legally) FLV, MP4 - MPlayer (some custom build from 16-07-2009)
  4. For USB, http://www.msfn.org/board/topic/43605-maximus-decim-native-usb-drivers/ is probably the best solution.
  5. Recently I have run my very first computer - Pentium 133 with 16 Mb RAM. In its times it has Windows 95 installed, and it was OK at that time. Now it has Windows 98 installed. It works, but things are slow, and multitasking is bad. However it's usable.
  6. I'd say 256 Mb is not enough (now). I was running a PC with Windows 98 and 256 Mb of RAM for several years (about 2008 - 2012) with lots of experiments and trying to run as much stuff on it as possible. And 256 Mb was not enough for later CASUAL games, which could be run on Windows 98 with Kernel Ex. Not big DVD games, but even smaller casual games. For example, Plants and Zombies hardly run on this PC, and I was not able to see the game's music video. Mainly it was because of amount of RAM, not processor. (Still I was able to complete the game ) For some time I didn't want to buy an additional 256 Mb stick because I didn't want to invest even a small sum of money in that old PC. In 2012 I bought a not used stick for around 12$, and just after a month the PC stopped working completely (it seems, because of HDD controllers on the maindoard). I don't know whether this is because of the "new" stick or not, but now it does not work with or without the stick. The system was faster with some apps and games, but somewhat less stable for that month. Offtop - recently I saw a math puzzle game that requires 2 GB of RAM. Crazy.
  7. I'm sorry - are you running a Program that will take five months to complete ON WINDOWS 98? Are you sure it can stay up that long?
  8. Just my 2 cents: There are replies from Russian Windows 98 forum that this version works OK for them.
  9. http://offbyone.com/offbyone/ 'nough said . jaclaz Also try D+ browser. Worked for me even on Pentium 133 with 16 Mb Ram with several tabs. Substantially more "decent" support for CSS (still no floats, but MSFN looks less ugly in it than in OffByOne). Even once posted here with it. However, a couple of years ago it started to crash on some modern websites. Download here: http://sourceforge.net/projects/dplus-browser/
  10. I also read something similar about running Windows 9x on Nokia 5800 some years ago. However, I was able to run only Windows 3.11 on it. Probably it's because there were some conflicts with libraries installed with Open Transport Tycoon.
  11. Some Skype 4.2 portable version logs in for me. I'm not sure if this version is official of somehow modified, and whether it is 98/ME compatible. I've got it from a friend, and it works (on Windows 7), but I don't know where he got it from.
  12. Take a look at this topichttp://www.msfn.org/board/topic/97140-nvidia-drivers-8269/
  13. May be setting compatibility mode for SeaMonkey to Win98SE, and separately for flasplayer dll to Win2000 would help?
  14. I had such problem too. I did it in a longer way - wrote an application that runs exe's passed as a command line parameters with their passed command line and placed it to the virus location Then used AVZ.
  15. AVZ Antiviral Toolkit can repair exe association. It should run on Windows 98 SE, but I'm not sure about FE. Note that it's not a full-featured antivirus, but rather a tool for professionals for removing malicious software. To restore exe associations, on the File menu click System Restore, then select the first check box and click the corresponding button to perform the operation. I'm using a russian version, so I'm not sure if menu commands are named as I wrote. Edit: Even after restoring EXE association it's strongly recommended to check your system with a full-featured antivirus. You can try downloading and burning a boot CD with an antivirus, and then check the system after booting from the CD - without the need to upgrade Windows.
