Title: NeoMagic & DirectX issues



I’m going
to assume that your notebook cannot handle 1280x1024x16bpp… even if you don’t
buy that, just bear with me.   Edit
your startxwin.bat file and change the following line:


start XWin
-screen 8 1024x768x16 -whitepixel 255 -blackpixel 0




start XWin
-screen 0 800x600x16


draw fails to initialize because screen 8 does not exist so the settings for it
will be ignored (don’t know why it’s in startxwin.bat, but it is), and the hard
coded default resolution for Xwin is 1280x1024x16bpp.   You could probably use 1024x768x16, but try 800x600x16
first, just to be safe.
