Looking at the date of posting it, PKY, you'd better find PD1.25 for the Matrox Millenium (the first) http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

You need new BETA drivers? For Win9x? Well, I can offer you some 5.53.017 but you've got to use them @ your own risk. It's a Matrox driver but for GigaByte's MG400 so if you're encounting problems nobody will help you except me (but my abilities are limited http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

A new hope ?
Maybe the new w2k drivers ?
Please Matrox do something, we're waiting for 2 months now...

Did you try their latest drivers, the unreleased 5.04 and 5.06b?

I'm with you Olivier!! (And yes I tried the 5.06b set myself, and it doesn't resolve my issues. http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif )

Please Matrox do something!! Even a new set of "betas" would be better than nothing! Is that too much to ask???

Besides it gives us something to talk about.

Perhaps they're working on that virtual desktop thingy again to get it to work like it did in the past, with DX5. That would be a surprise http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

I'm still disappionted they didn't get Microsoft that far to include it again in DX7 http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/frown.gif
I found it very practical with Word, it could show the whole letter with a single mousemove

Peter, maybe some of these Virtual Desktop Managers (http://winfiles.cnet.com/apps/98/desktop-virtual.html) might be useful for ya.

All jokes aside, it's almost 3 months since Matrox realesed drivers for Win9*, and 5.52.015 aren't that perfect.
Just hope someone up there doesn't forget us Windows 98 users http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/wink.gif

I can assure you that Matrox has not forgotten Win9x, Win2k, or NT4 users.

It could be that they're concentrating more on the G450 and G800.

Don't forget openGL which still needs a lot of work to remove bugs and improve speed. They may have been spending a lot of time in this area. If they can get the ICD solid then future matrox cards won't look bad when it comes to openGL http://forums.murc.ws/ubb/smile.gif

In case you did not notice it, the posting date thingy WAS a forum PROBLEM! It does not mean I posted it anno 1997!!!

I'm so sorry but the 5.53 drivers are real, no joke or anything! =)
