A1200 Indivision Monitor/Resolution Blues

My A1200 Pimp-project is coming to an end with one big grievance i can't seem to get around or find any clear cut instructions on how to get past ...

Hardware: Amiga 1200 PAL, 3.1 ROM upgraded with the ACA 1232/33Mhz accelerator, Indivision 1200 AGA MK2cr and a CF Adapter (4GB)
Software : Amiga Classic Workbench ADVSP (3.1)
Monitor : Acer V176LBMD 1280x1024 (4:3)

Can someone please advise me on what monitor driver to install (and where to get it) so that I can get away from the standard resolution it's currently running.
Preferably something that matches the ability of the monitor (1280x1024) assuming that my Amiga won't die a horrible slow death from pulling that resolution.. Otherwise 1024x768 will do just fine.

HiGFX on aminet will give you 1024x768, at least. Not sure about higher resolutions.

The best for your accelerator isn't HighGFX, it would slow down your system. Best is SuperPlus 800x600 and my Indivision Config.

Brilliant advice both of you.. Thank you very much. I tried both and went with the 800x600 version which is just fine for my use. Its fast and running beautifully.

Superplus is great with my 060 and it has very little flickering unlike highcfx. Using it with my M1438s.

Wonderful . The only things that I miss on CWBAdvSp are to have included the SuperPlus mode (now you've got it) and also to have the Internet drawer with iBrowse already included, just if you want to use internet. For that you should use first the option to use OS3.5 icons that I think (that option) should be installed by default, but it isn't. It is just a right click on screen, "Drawers", "MyFiles", "Install", "Icons", "Install Icons Support". Later you have to add iBrowse. Send me an email if you want to add it.

Edit: Oh well, I wish CWBAdvSp could also have a good dock. Perhaps ToolManager works with it, but I have never tried it. I should, as there is a good guide https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...oolManager.pdf
