Royce's Video Card Utilities


CAUTION

THESE PROGRAMS ARE PROVIDED "AS IS" WITHOUT ANY WARRANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED. THE USER ASSUMES FULL RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANY DIRECT OR INDIRECT DAMAGES RESULTING FROM THE MALFUNCTION, MISUSE, OR GENERAL FLAKINESS OF THESE UTILITIES. CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!!!


MCLK0.93B (09/98) - Named after "Memory-CLocK", my program MCLK.EXE can accelerate the 2D-GUI performance of the following chipsets : Cirrus Logic GD542x/30/36/4x, S3 Trio/Virge, Trident 9440/96xx, and Tseng Labs ET-6000. MCLK gives you direct control of your video chipset's clock-registers, letting you overclock your video board's memory-subsystem for more performance! To learn about MCLK, read about video-card overclocking, or see benchmarks, please visit the MCLK information page.

094A adds Trident Blade3D support for Trident 9750/9850/Blade3D chips. The 9750/9850 BIOS reprograms the mclk_registers after every video mode-change, so 9750/9850 support is useless...

V2DOSFIX - a utility for owners of Rendition V2x00 boards. This program patches Verite V1000-accelerated DOS games (Speedy3d API) so that they can be run natively from MSDOS (no Win95 dos-box required.) Has been tested with Tomb Raider Beta4 (01/97) and Nascar2 1.02 (05/97)

SSUTIL - a temporary DOS-based refresh-rate utility for owners of Rendition V2x00 boards. This program is a modified version of the program SSUTIL.EXE which Sierra includes with its Screamin'3D (V1000) board. As such, the program's listed refresh-rate table doesn't match the Verite reference BIOS refresh-table, but at least you can change your refresh rate from MSDOS! (no Win95 dos-box required.) Has been tested on Diamond StealthII S220 (BIOS v1.31)

M13SPEED- an MCGA accelerator TSR for Trident 9440/96xx video boards. M13SPEED accelerates MCGA 320x200 256-color by replacing these requests with a SVGA VESA 640x400 request. The emulated 320x200 display looks like the familiar 320x200 256-color MCGA mode, but runs at the full-speed of the Trident's SVGA core! (does not work with Rendition chipsets)

S3W95VID - a fix for the buggy MPEG/AVI playback of the S3 Trio64V+/Virge chips. The OEM reference drivers for these chips enforce a "minimum horizontal stretch factor" for video overlay acceleration (native video playback.) This fix disables that restriction! (Note: The Trio64V+/Virge architecture requires very very fast RAM timings for video-playback in small-windows!)
