About a week ago I posted a message to this list asking if
anyone with greater than 512k of memory was using Nitros.
I got ZERO responses. The reason I’m asking is my 2meg card.
It runs everything except Nitros later versions, I haven’t
verified 1.15 yet. The video hardware on my board is un changed
from a working proto type, which I no longer have. It appears
that GRFDRV is not allocating video memory properly. I would
LOVE to be proven wrong!
When Nitros boots, 512k or more, the first window was placed
at the top of ram, 512k. This was true even on a 2meg system. After
the boot process was complete then all additional windows would then
be allocated from the true top of RAM.
On the road for work so I’m trying to narrow this down to either
software or hardware. All I need is ONE person to say it works
on their system. :
