  1. i've just aquired an mk1 (so to speak) SB Audigy (SB0090) for my rig i'd like to find the latest VXD drivers i can for use in 98SE (as opposed to the WDM ones) problem is i don't have an install CD to initally install the drivers and then use the updates creative supplys. any suggestions/link ? many thanks. PS i know about the kX drivers and don't fancy them as this is mainly for gaming use.
  2. AVG here i install without the e-mail scanner (i install IE without OE and use webmail (which is scanned their end) so there's no need) nice and light. i've heard good things about nod32 though
  3. what program is this btw ? ps. i've used Display Set and Desktop Architect (for themeing) both are very good imo
  4. no its a palette index (position) and a weird one at that (not first or last) if i remember rightly its been a while (sigh, come on memory - whirr, whirr, click, click whirr ) to test make a bmp with ALL palette positions the test color (i remember i used the xp/win2k 'Background' blue the first time) insert and test it you'll see the tail off has changed copy this bmp and change one index at a time (1 to 16) to a seperate new color - green or something (but not black) changing the previous one back to 'blue' as you go. insert and test repeat. when the tail off goes green (or 'something') you've found the palette index for the tail off (which you would use for the backgound of the text also in most design cases) i would be more help (i have done bmps at home i could just look at in psp) but i'm away from home currently so don't have access to my own computer. anyway its only 16 colors to test = a good rainy afternoon task ps. if you try this out post your findings for other browsers. pss. ensure the new BMP is the correct BMP format (my memorys twitching that it's ment to be RLE but i could be wrong - sleepy) psss. i find PSP best for windows palette work btw. pssss. i will try to remember to edit this page with corrrect info (if its not extended) when i get home (it'll be a while though)
  5. ie6 should remain supported (regardless of os) till ie7 comes out (which will be soon) i would suggest you get familiar with the alternatives anyway.
  6. Sorry, I was just going off in a rant. Basically all I was trying to state was that I'm not taking Link21's argument seriously anymore, now it's just amusing. ****, you said that ? i though link posted it (wishful thinking i think) guess the cats out the bag now sorry Jlo555 if you went off the hook at Link, i can appreciate that, i nearly got banned for doing the same on topic - mental health patients should have their net access restricted imho
  7. i'm asking the same question, obviously the hitman i paid has done a runner.
  8. the tail off doesn't have to be black you know, you can edit the pallette (keep it 4 bit)
  9. quickly Robin! too the Batmeter . . .
  10. just in time for Jobs to release OSX for PC
  11. no, but i've downloaded a couple of trojans in my time.
  12. a-squared is a high rated alternative 9X compatable with very good reviews http://www.emsisoft.com/en/software/free/
  13. as many 98SEs as you want (with desktop shortcuts to each install) http://www.thpc.info/dual/addawins.html
  14. you can definitely do more than that, but not with the one included in windows i think, there were some who used to install the Q3 demo into a ram drive and get the jump on servers, should be a tutorial around . . . found it - http://www.thetechzone.com/articles/ram_drive/index.shtml has RAM drive app download too probably some stuff on MDGXs site (about RAM drives) as well.
  15. i can see where this is going, and it's waaayy off topic. but . . . you're assuming there's an inherent need or desire to use modern software. i can't speak for anyone else but i'm still writing HTML in Notepad (well Textpad actually) and i think its fair to say i don't think MDGX (the member here most would agree has the best 95/98/98SE/ME support site) uses Macromedia flash MX Dreamweaver MX. personally imo the only piece of software that must be current is Anti-virus and the web browser (and the web browser is debatable) it's all relative try not to wade in just because we may poke fun over a single phrase (of which i may be guilty, and as such apologize) but on the flipside could you perhaps try not to make posts in the Windows 95/98/98SE/ME Software Discussion & Support Forum in an effort to try to get us to agree we should upgrade to new hardware (or a new OS) for two reasons. 1. it's not going to happen (the people that are here have made their choice, for whatever reason). and 2. a rather dim view of it is taken by most of the regulars (and thankfully now) the forum mods as well. please guess i'll get back to designing a cool mini desktop Arcade cab built out a of K6-2 333, PCChips PC100 board, ISA SB16, TNT2, running NeoRAGEx and DOS ZSNES and try to stop the name Link21 rattling round in my head . . .
