How to get higher color palette in NT 5.0 build 1729?

Post by TwilyDev »

For better experience, I want a higher resolution and color palette.
Sadly, Both Guest Additions and VBE driver won't work.
Results:
1. Guest Additions

2. VBEMP NT4 Version

3. VBEMP Win2000 Version

Is there an alternate way to do this?

Try 86Box or a similar emulator.

In case if you didn't know, this user is on Lubuntu.

So he or she might have to try PCem instead, which is avaliable for Linux.

I do know that not everyone uses Windows. Some people have Macs, and some others use Linux distros and others.

- ovctvct: Actually, 86Box (or Windows PCem) on Wine is going to work better, because I heard parts of the 32-bit Voodoo recompiler for example work properly in the Windows builds but not in the Linux builds. It wouldn't surprise me if the same is true for the CPU recompiler.

I would be surprised if the VBoxVideo driver from OS/2 Museum didn't work on this build, since that driver works on virtually any NT-based operating system.

Isn't there an anti-brony rule back in 2016? I believe that is still active AFAIK.
I hope this is not considered as backseat moderating since I'm only asking a question.
Oh... Okay. :?
