Modern(-ish) NVidia Cards on Windows 98 SE

The Windows 98 Beta Driver below (82.69) has support for the 7xxx series of graphics cards, including PCI-Express x16 versions. If you have more than 256MB of video memory, you need to buy & install RLOEW's RAM Patch, else you'll get a windows protection error. 


You need to install this driver over the device manager. Click on VGA Adapter, and reinstall driver. Then navigate to the INF file (NVAML.INF).

Java & OpenGL

If you start a Java application that uses OpenGL, you will get an exception error. You will need to replace C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM\NVOPENGL.DLL with the one from the old driver. Afterwards, you will have no problems. Play some Minecraft! :D
