Howdy,

I've reverse engineered some NVDI drivers for misc. graphics cards and improvised a SCREEN.SYS replacement.

GIT repo is here:

Still stuff to solve, bugs to fix. It's supposed to be used with OLs EmuTOS fork for the V4.

cool,

to be honest I mistakenly thought NVDI source code was available somewhere on GitHub

There are rumours about it being fully reverse engineered, but I'm innocent to that.

I just disassembled some drivers for the pixel formats I wanted, removed hw dependent code and rebuilt it.

V4SCREEN.SYS is based solely on guesswork however.

Excellent work!

I wonder how much hassle it would be to get them working on the v2 cards?
