I'm trying to get my 5150 to display hercules mode in some dos games on the 5151 monochrome monitor. I've got a video7 vega card installed in the machine. The card is capable of displaying hercules mode but you need to use the vega.com utility which I dont have. Does anyone have a copy of this utility?

Or is there by any chance a generic hercules driver for dos?

I believe I have the same card in my XT. I'll check this evening, but I should have an image of the disk(s) that came with it.

Thanks you are a legend!

I looked for the drivers a few months back and I found the text file on another site, but I searched for a good half an hour yesterday and didn't find this site.

Thanks glitch, yes, these sites are great. Good to see this stuff is still on the net, even if it's a little hard to find.
