Tseng ET4000/w32p's problems with 1024x768

Postby SA1988 » Sat 23 Jan, 2016 3:05 pm

Under all operating systems (even Windows 3.1 as well as Windows 9x), this results in a black screen that remains in a "stopped" state, that is, the bios cursor doesn't flash and doesn't output this resolution and note, this happens with all its supported color depths (8bpp and 16bpp).
Edit: I wonder if this is a planar mode or not, if it is, that would be why it doesn't work.

Drivers used are the following: http://driverzone.com/drivers/tseng/et4kw32.zip

Edit: the screenshot (trying out 1024x768 256 color mode with the drivers above):

As discussed on IRC, this is probably a result of using the wrong BIOS. PCem does specifically emulate a Diamond Stealth 32, with the RAMDAC and clock chip used on that card, and using another BIOS will potentially have issues.

There wasn't a bug here. User was running the wrong BIOS.

Why did you dig up this 2 year old thread anyway?

I'm sorry about that. but I know this is due to user running wrong BIOS.

I know that it's not a bug. Unfortunately I can't remove my previous post, So I can only edit my previous post anyway.
