TLIW32PM.NEW is a renamed TLIW32PM.DLL Tseng ET4000 W32i and W32p driver,
_including_ W32p revision D, that makes 1024x768 video mode use small
fonts (tested only at 256 colors).
If you've ever been at 800x600 and switched to 1024x768 you probably
noticed (or not!) that there's not much more space on the desktop.
This is because the fonts, dialogs, -- you name it, are set to a
bigger size. This pretty much nullifies the reason to use 1024x768,
if you ask me.
The driver, based on the 16-May-1995 version (Warp Connect release),
was processed through a Gigantor control box and modified to start
up in lots-of-room-on-desktop mode. If you want the big stuff back,
do the reverse of what is described next.
Warp 3.0 or later
1. Locate your existing TLIW32PM.DLL file. This may be in boot:\, or
boot:\os2, or boot:\os2\dll (should be here).
2. Copy TLIW32PM.NEW to that directory.
3. Reboot. On restart, when the white box appears at the upper-left
of the screen (a few seconds after starting the OS/2 boot):
4. At the option screen:
for a command line. The command prompt appears a few seconds later.
5. Change to the directory with TLIW32PM.DLL:
6. Rename the current driver and rename the new:
ren TLIW32PM.DLL TLIW32PM.OLD
ren TLIW32PM.NEW TLIW32PM.DLL
7, Exit the session to reboot:
At the new boot, the desktop will have a smaller launchpad (thinner and
not as tall). The folder/icons are smaller, as is the icon text. Your
apps will have smaller dialogs, fonts, etc. The change is around
whatever 1024x768 is relative 800x600 (about 40% bigger), or like going
from a 15-inch screen to an 18-inch.
This driver, and any future updates. can be located at FTP site:
in /os2/drivers. Filename is ET4SMALL.ZIP.
