Problem:

VIDMODE DOESN'T WORK (VERSION 1.2 ON)

Resolution:

  Problem: The VIDMODE program does not give a satisfactory

  display with high resolution graphics mode.

  Solution: Beginning with Version 1.2, if the keyword VDD is used

  in WINICE.DAT, Winice will call the Windows display driver

  directly. This keyword must be on a line by itself in WINICE.DAT.

  There are two disadvantages with this method: first, it cannot

  be used when debugging the display driver since it is calling this

  driver. Second, you cannot debug Windows initialization (by

  removing the "X;" from the INIT string in WINICE.DAT) because the

  display driver has not yet been loaded, and so the Soft-ICE screen

  cannot display.
