Note that the little ATI MACH32 with 1MB and a 85Mhz Bt RamDAC can only work with 2 or 256 Colors. 15 or 16bit Color do not work. The card work only maximal to 1024x768 Pixel. When you upgrade the card to 2MB DRAM the Driver will see the card only as 1MB card, so 2MB do not work.

Idek will may be work on it to fix the faults with the Bt RamDAC Card !?!
I just got your email and you only attached the useless MSTE_M32.zip from the website, plus a photo of my graphics card.

Inside is EMULATOR.PRG and STA_VDI.PRG, and nothing else.

I'm not sure why you do this. Obviously I already downloaded this zip before. The problem I already said is it does not have anything to make it work. I don't need it again.

Why do people think its acceptable to sell stuff without any documentation... I have no idea what to do to maker this stupid thing work. Nobody has put the answer online. Why is it being kept secret?
I have to admit KyleB, that this is often the case with much modern Atari hardware, in my experience. But I have to remind myself, these people aren't selling mass produced items to the general public, they are selling extra items from their hobby to other like minded people. Sometimes it takes a lot more effort, but it's part and parcel of the experience.

Finally, now the correct files, it works. Probably this thread is the only place online to get working drivers for nova+mach32. So at least the answer is here for people to find on google now.

Benchmarks to follow.
