Anyway isn't it possible to get PMODE video BIOS routine address by calling special INT 10h subfuncion and then use VBIOS directly from PMODE without switching to RMODE?

I once found article where it was said that in plain RMODE/PMODE on x86 machines after startup (this means plain DOS too) all AGP cards are set to standard PCI mode which max transfer rate is 32 MB/s. However through some register hacking it is possible to check which AGP mode VGA supports and turn ...

?? I believe that by design WinNT Kernel (currently only official M$ core, as they stopped supporting W9x) has to be at least as good as Linux Kernel is. I like the whole idea and think is much better than Linux. However implementation might suffer. Anyway Bill Gates is no more than tyranic manager,...

So if i got it right on Win32 SDL uses only DX3 interfaces? Man, current DX9 version is quite far away from that.

It depends on API you are using, for example under plain DOS there is no other way to know than directly interfacing with HW. Under Win32 there are some API calls to get Proccessor type and speed, memory size etc. To get graphic HW you should use funtions provided by API you are using be it DX or Op...

I think there is no way to easy hide process in NT family, (or you must use some special non standard stealth techniques, or something like mentioned injecting technique ). Even in healthy system there are all services and processes visible, and in infected including trojans and viruses which have p...

Even on DOS system logical memory might be mapped differently from physical memory, it all depends on DPMII server, that's why you must use selectors and remap vyrutal space etc. Ususally DPMII server creates some
buffer, it depends per server. Use google PMODE to get some info ;).

In 3-D there are some kinds of common buffers which, are for example used by hardware today, but you can create any buffer you want, storing any info you want. Every kind of the buffer can be simulated in software for tradeoff with speed. These buffers usually store information per pixel not per obj...

Pure VB and VB.NET are two completely different languages and compilers. If I'm right VB.NET generates only bytecodes.

By PASCAL convention I understand stdcall convention. Win32 Api funcs are all stdcall, but they dont have @<num> appended, right? If in stdcall convention called function restores stack, why @<num> is needed for linker? IMHO it doesn't even need it, does it? Okay but now I know how to force FB funct...

What exactly is purpose of name mangling in plain C, why is it needed? To catch stack return errors? From what I know, in C++, it is used to encode class name params and other various info. Is FB using C calling convention? Is that the reason FB needs .a files? I thought that BI and DLL together are...
