Problems with Chicago 90c

Post by vlad557776 »

Hello.

Recently I was reinstalling Chicagos due to me losing my Chicago VMs. And I came to 90c (the buggiest Chicago ever). I have 2 problems:

1. After boot, it yells "resource conflict" a few times, it lets me to the desktop after I press OK a few times, but still annoying.
2. It almost bricks when I try to change the resolution from 640x480x16.

Are there any ways to fix these problems? And no, I can't use VPC2007.

The resource conflict is normal, it's a buggy build.
Built-in drivers are quite limited, use, something like ET4000AX, TVGA8900D, WD90c30, Vision964, Cirrus GD542x/543x on the 86box side.

If you're using PCem, select Trident TVGA8900D and after installation select SVGA for the adaptor and monitor from the control panel.

I tried. After a hard reset, it dumped me right into the DOS prompt. And why the DOS prompt says that this build is 90b?

These specs. work for me in PCem v15 on Windows 10:

Machine: [486] AMI WinBIOS 486Me
CPU: AMD Am486DX2/80
Memory: 32mb
Video: Trident TVGA8900D
Speed: Fast VLB/PCI

You could also try upgrading from build 81.

This config worked. Also, it somehow got rid of resource conflicts. Thanks!
