I can't run 3ds, please help

Post by Cheerfu » Sun, 04 Apr 1999 04:00:00



Hello all

I am a novice to 3ds, and I get a trouble about initialization.
When I run 3ds R4 under Dos, it always shows "Initialization Error",either
"Error 1300:Vga hardware checks failed" or "Error 1302: Sierra Hicolor
RAMDAC not present".
My Pc uses S3 trio64v2 VGA card. And I reinstall the driver under Dos(maybe
it is too old).

Anyone has an idea?

Thanks

Type "3ds.exe vibcfg" and choose your card...

1. Help, I've got a new box and now 3DS R4 won't run

Help

I'm trying to use 3DS R4 on my new system and am having trouble getting it
started.
My new box is a P3-550mhz with 192mb and an nVidia TNT2 Ultra graphics
card.

When running 3ds vibcfg, I can test all the vesa modes perfectly (gotta use
vesa because all these new cards don't come with DOS/3DS drivers anymore)
up to 1024x768 (I don't like using 1280x1024 in anything..  That just gets
too small..), but when 3ds goes to start, the box locks up.

I tried setting the video modes, letting it lock and then just rebooting
and trying to run 3ds without the vibcfg since I had already done that, but
I got the same result, a locked box.
I can't see that it's a video problem since all the modes tested good in
the setup routine, so what am I missing?

I'm booting directly to a DOS prompt, not shutting down Win98 to a DOS
prompt, but hitting F8 and booting to clean DOS.  I always thought it best
to boot to a clean DOS prompt.  At least that's what I did with my last
machine running a PPro 200 using a Hercules Stingray 128 and it worked just
fine.

Any help will be, well uh, helpfull.   :)

Thanks
