Have you got english version of the winx.cpx configuration file ?


Not sure either, as I cannot remember. :roll:
Looking at the English on it, I think it is not an English version.
I probably did a "hex editor and Google translate" on it. :wink:

I attach ATI_NVDI

It will rename files configured in the CFG file according to the following
If Radeon is detected running, it will disable the files listed in the CFG ( set extension to X )
If it is not detected to be running, it will enable the files listed in the CFG ( set extension back to normal )

Can be downloaded from my site now.

So this kind of auto enable/disable NVDI based on Radeon.
My config file, i also enable Videl Inside.
From the prg message, you see I did it long time ago, so I cannot remember.
This was only really for my own use.

I will not attache BOTHLP as I cannot explain how it is working.

I forgot to tell....
For the ATI_NVDI to be effective, you need it to place as the 1st or 2nd program in AUTO.
It is best to run it every time as if your Radeon fail to load, it will set to NVDI mode and you can use videl mode.

Wongck:
I just started testing your program, something I've been looking for since I first used CTPCI and Radeon (it was 7 years ago), works fantastically :D.
Previously, I did so that on C:\ partition I had two GEMSYS directories (to work with CTPCI and the other when I disabled CTPCI), I had to manually change the names of these directories where I had the NVDI driver, NVDIDRV * .SYS files.
Now your program, it makes and recovers a lot of space on the C: partition and the pleasure of working :D.

Once again thank you, you are a great man.
Thank you, Thank you !!!

Yes I did this program around 6-7 years back when I got my CTPCI & Radeon.
it's one of those small programs I did to make using my hardware more convenient.
Glad it is of use to Others.

Thanks a lot,
I thought it would work but it behaves the same as 1.6, that is, it depends on Xboot as I wrote in a separate thread

I am not surprised as Gemram does nothing but load GEM into ram for WinX to patch. I suspect it is the patched code that Xboot does not like.
