Update video drivers? Low end vidcard? Is C&C updated with latest patches ? v1.06c from Nyerguds? Even if it's an unofficial patch it's a good one. etcetera .... Without any relevant details about your hardware hard to tell ....... "Win98 comp" is all the info we get from you. And my witchbulb blew ...

I totally hear what you are saying, but have not had any issues with Win98se so far. I have even installed KernEX and have installed some troublesome software that works (such as autostarts).

A total overkill. Wrong PC for dos. Could do for W98SE, but even then, an overkill. No ISA slot for soundcard? :blah: CPU: too fast for many dos softs :blah: RAM: total overkill, even some W98 will choke on that. :blah: (some W98 software won't even run on +500MB RAM. In theory W98 can handle 2GB RA...

You're really bitten by this, ain't you? Indeed, normal2x scaler looks slightly better. One point however, whilst it's true that all older CRTs had a fishbowl effect, some more than others, the latter CRTs (and not the cheapest of them meheh) had an almost flat screen, and the latest ones ( again no...
