Hello, does anyone know where to find a good
Windows95 graphic driver for the Sigma Legend II
(ET4000) video card? The flicker is horrible!
There is nothing: "www.sdesigns.com"
The "Vmode.com" and all the drivers at www.tseng.com
also don't work under W95!?!

In add new hardware, run it, but at step two say no to running wizard. then choose display adapters a scroll until you see
Tseng labs. 95 will support those. I know because I've installed them.
If you want i'll track down the drivers.

Quite a few companies use the ET4000 standard. I'll try to find who makes Sigma Legend II and get your drivers. if you already know, let me know who manufactured the card.

This is the normal W95 "Tseng Labs ET4000" driver:
tseng.vxd (& framebuff.drv & vmm32.vxd)
Version: 4.03.00.1096 ; Date: 5. Sept. '96
But there are only two horizontal refresh rates:
---> optimal & dafault <---
The "optimal" is about 68 [Hz]!!!  ;-(

> let me know who manufactured the card
--> Sigma Designs, Inc. Fremont...
There is realy nothing: "www.sdesigns.com"!
I think they stoped doing anything for this card.

Under Linux this is possible: 800x600 & 90 [Hz]
I used this "mode":
    ModeLine "800x600"  65  800  880 1064 1128 600 605 611 639
==> approx. 90 [Hz] (refresh rate)!  <-- 65E6/1128/639

Soryy smeebud, perhaps I don't understand your answer...
I think there is only this driver: "tseng.vxd"
which are called: "Tseng Labs ET4000"
If you have different ones, let me know.
