A request (Win95)

Hey, I’m trying to collect information on blit capabilities of various
drivers and video cards under Windows95 and NT.

If anyone would like to run my test program, please send me some e-mail,
and I will mail you the program (~122K) and source.

When you run the test, it will create a file “stderr.txt” which contains
lots of useful and incomprehensible information. :slight_smile:

See ya,

Hi,

Just mail the test program (or give an ftp url). Then I will try to test
it.

Hi,

I’ve included the stderr as an Attchmnt.

Aahh, a worthy cause indeed.

Um… Are you trying to avoid duplicates? I could try it out on my
Millennium board (4MB WRAM, PCI) and on a (random) S3 system. If you
don’t already have the data for a Millennium, send me the program.

Sorry I’ve thought you would probe it…

S3 Virge Rev G 2MB.

Thanks. What kind of video card do you have?

Information on an S3 system would be great. I have a good idea of what’s
allowed in DirectDraw surface creation now, which is nice.

Okay, send me the stuff and I’ll run it! I don’t know right now the
exact model of the board, but I’m fairly sure it’s an S3 (it’s my
dad’s machine – I didn’t build it).

Hey, Heh, I have the exact same Millennium board. :slight_smile:
I love it.

Yeah, it’s a nice board. Now I’m longing for Matrox to release their
much-talked-about G200. Twice the 2D performance of the Millennium,
with near-Voodoo-2 3D to boot. And they say it’s gonna be cheap.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: I can’t wait!
