4.00 5.00 5.50 6.00



The test that Microsoft Word uses to identify the Hercules GB112 may succeed even though you have the Hercules GB102. This can cause unpredictable display behavior. You can correct this situation by adding the following line to the AUTOEXEC.BAT file:

SET HERCGB102=true

The following are the display switches in Word version 4.00 for the Hercules GB101 and GB102:

If You Type the Following: Word Will Display in the Following Manner: ————– ——————————————

word/g 720 x 350 resolution, 25 lines and 80 characters, two colors

word/c Text mode, 25 lines and 80 characters, two colors

word/h/g 720 x 350 resolution, 43 lines and 90 characters, two colors

In Word versions 5.00 and 5.50, these command-line display switches are not supported. Instead, select the appropriate video adapter when you set up the program.
