p96 new res rough guide (with radeon install)

Hi guys here is a picasso 96 guide for making new screenmodes

pics taken with my galaxy s ii (not the best)

for this im using a voodoo3 2000 in a a1200 mediator v1
but should work with any pci p96 rtg capable card and any monitor

but need to test on my 9250 radeon

also a note from fitzsteve
One thing for P96 RTG users to be careful of, most (if not all) Zorro RTG cards won't be able to do 1600x1200 @24bit so make sure you are within the spec of your card when making screen modes!

With help taken from here thanks guys

colour depth modes
voodoo 3 can use 8,15,16,24 bit modes
radeon can use 8,15,16,32 bit modes

8bit = chunky(256 colors)
15bit = hicolor (32k colors)
16bit = hicolor (64k colors)
24bit = truecolor (16m colors)
32bit = truealpha (16m colors)

I think no Zorro card can do 1600x1200x24 - BVPPC/CVPPC/Voodoo etc. needed.

I was referring to EGS drivers, the worst RTG driver system ever created, my friend.

I think this program must be supplied with Windows Vista or Win Millenium, they share the same level of fail!
