Windows 3.0 real mode problem - with et4000ax

Postby ovctvct » Mon 17 Jul, 2017 2:26 pm

When trying to run Windows 3.0 MME in real mode, with AMI 386DX and ET4000ax, this happens:

I'm using 256 color ET4TURBO drivers for 1024x768 mode if that matters.

I never heard of that Windows 3.0 release... did you try the same setting with the retail Windows 3.0 standard version?

You could try loading with /r or run setup /i Then select the devices instead of trusting Windows to select them.

He said he's running Windows 3.0 in real mode, therefore, with /r. :p

Does it only happen with that et4000ax card? Did you try others?

- omarsis81: It's a bug with a specific set of ET4000AX drivers. The correct solution is to see if it's actually an emulator bug, and if yes, fix it.

I was thinking he was running /m tho both are force commands Battler. I shouldn't read so fast half the time. I wouldn't think it was a bug being he should be running 386 Enhanced mode for that build.
