I remember having issues with stuff that used Direct Draw on windows for example. TrueColor and DirectColor visuals are supported in the other depths. This mode is unaccelerated. I would prefer dosbox rather than a laptop to use retro stuff. So even if it were possible to stick it in a wrapper, I doubt the chipset has the raw power needed to make it work.

Jens Owen, Kevin E. This mode is unaccelerated. Jun 2, Posts: Users browsing this forum: The posting of advertisements, profanity, or personal attacks is prohibited.
Select type of offense: Thu Feb 07, 7: TrueColor and DirectColor visuals are supported in magicgrapy other depths. Note On some laptops using the chipset MagicGraph XD the following options are needed to avoid a lock-up of the graphic engine: This disclaimer is brought to you thanks to the BSA. All visuals are supported in depth 8.
But anyway, I don’t really know why DX 8. All depths are accelerated except for depth 24 which is only accelerated on NM and newer models. I say give up now while you’ve still got hairs on your head.
Is it possible to support Direct3D or OpenGL on a Neomagic Magicmedia 256AV?
I would prefer dosbox rather than a laptop to use magcgraph stuff. I would suggest you give up on trying to run Toontown, or anything else that requires 3D acceleration, on that laptop.
So even if it were possible to stick it in a magigcraph, I doubt the chipset has the raw power needed to make it work. Using this option solves the problem at the expense of reducing the memory available for other operations.

Return to General Old Hardware. URL came out wrong. I have the same chipset in my laptop, and while it’s fine for 2D and RTS type gaming, it just can’t hack 3D stuff.
I have no idea about the sound, but the video may be a bit quirky even on dos, some resolutions in both Dos and Windows just don’t work right. Any other thoughts on interesting things to do with this system? Your message has been reported and will be reviewed by our staff.
