BASIC DRIVER FEATURES

Basic MiniDriver Functionality

The driver supports identical accelerated functionality in all pixel 
depths 8/16/24. For operations that can use Raster Ops the driver uses 
the Accelerator in all cases. HiColor (16Bpp) modes are 565.  The driver 
uses Linear Addressing (not VFLATD bank switching) in all modes.

This driver also utilizes Device Bitmaps to provide improved acceleration.
If there is enough Offscreen Memory available, Color Bitmaps that normally 
would be allocated in Host/System Memory will be allocated in Screen Memory
allowing the ET6000 to be used to operate directly on those bitmaps. There is
accelerated support for the Color Bitmaps listed below when they reside in Video 
RAM. If there is not enough room for a particular bitmap then the DIB Engine
is used to render those.


The minidriver utilizes the ET6000 to accelerate the following:

	Legend: S - Screen, C - Color Bitmap - Host Memory, M - Mono Bitmap


	BitBlt, CtoS, All ROPS (this includes PatBlt) 
	BitBlt, StoS, All ROPS (this includes PatBlt)
	BitBlt, MtoS, All ROPS
	PatBlt, C, Mono Pattern, All ROPS
	PatBlt, S, Mono Pattern, All ROPS
	Lines,C, Horizontal/Vertical/Diagonal
	Lines,S, Horizontal/Vertical/Diagonal
	Polygon, C & S
	Rectangle, C & S
	Scanlines, C & S
	Ellipses, C & S
	Circles, C & S
	Rounded Rects, C & S
	Text, C & S, All Fonts
	Hardware Cursor, all modes, when Cursor is mono


	Automatic Refresh Rate selection based on Monitor Info and
	DDC1 monitors are supported in the driver.


The DirectDraw Portion of the Driver supports the following: 

     *  DirectX 2.0, 3.0, 3.0a and 5.0 betas (DirectX 1.0 is no-longer supported)


     *  Support for the following Low Resolution Modes 
         at 8 & 16 & 24 Bpp:

         320x200
         320x240
         512x384
         640x400


     *  Primary Surface Access
     *  Accelerated Transparent Blt (arbitrary Transparent Color)
     *  Full Screen Page Flipping
     *  BitBlt S&D Rops
     *  2 Overlay Windows (1 Page Flipped Overlay) (RGB 16/24 or YUV422)





NOTES - GENERAL

The driver is installed through the normal Windows 95 Control Panel 
mechanism as presented in the README.TXT file in this directory.

 
To accelerate Video file playback using DirectDraw, DirectVideo or ActiveMovie must be installed.
