Are there any high resolution drivers for Windows 2.0x/2.1x?

Post by vlad557776 »

Hi.

Recently I was trying to find some high-resolution drivers for Windows 2.0x/2.1x, but, because of Google's search engine, I didn't find anything (Google showed me only audio drivers for modern systems). I've seen somewhere that there are drivers for Windows 2 and emulated cards at 86box which can work, but I was unable to find them.

Can someone help me with finding these drivers?

Windows/386 2.01 has awful hardware support.

There are some Trident TVGA 8900 drivers for 2.x, but for 2.01, it needs hex editing the version number of the driver because, by defaults, is 2.03.

Cool! Installing 2.03 is no deal for me. Where I can download these drivers?

Edit: These are sfx archives, but when you open them using 7zip, look for win286 and win386, those are the drivers you should use.

Well, I found only the 286 drivers on these disks, but still good. Also, there are some 3.0 drivers I needed. Thanks!
