@diderius6

would you have any interest in possibly helping reverse engineering ntkern.vxd of windows98 SE? we could potentially improve windows driver model support in windows 98.

PS: Dont know, for what win98se is good for today. Only for Settlers 2 I like a lot:))..

you're right, windows98 is really only good for retro gaming nowadays.

I think it would be nice to get 3D acceleration working in VMWare at least, the VMWare driver doesn't work in windows98 right now.

@diderius6

looking at the VMWare driver for XP

vmx_svga.sys doesn't call too many functions from ntoskrnl/hal - this might work with just an inf mod.

Is there a github repo that you guys are doing work in? I wouldn't mind peeking or helping a bit. Settlers 2 I haven't thought of in years :)
