AG>BTW, I have a CGA moniter, which for some reason thinks he is a low AG>resolution 16 color EGA monitor. I don't suppose that you know what the AG>story is there? Andrew, The EGA card was designed to handle 2 different monitors. #1: The Enhanced Color Display, which had a resolution of 640 x 350, with 6 bits of RGB input (RrGgBb). #2: The CGA Monitor (Because back then, a new monitor was big $$$$), with 640x200 resolution and 4 bit RGB (RGBI) input. You can read the EGA switches and determine which monitor is attached to an EGA card. -Mp === * SLMR 2.1a * Programmers get overlaid! --- InterPCB 1.50 # Origin: CENTRAL BBS -Texas' BEST BBS! 214-393-7090 HST 3+GIGs (8:930/21) * Origin: Gateway System to/from RBBS-NET (RBBS-PC 1:10/8)
