Welcome to IWETHEY!

New If you have the full version of the scitech drivers
then you can do that resolution, as you can just dial up whatever resolution you want.

Don't know if it's worth the money to you or not, though. OTOH, they do have a lot of cool features last time I looked at them (like portrait mode, for example). ISTR that they've got a working implementation of OpenGL (but not with hardware acceleration) included too.

New Re: If you have the full version of the scitech drivers
Sure don't. Looks like it's SNAP now instead of SDD. I don't see any pricing on their site either. Hmm - this under My SciTech looks interesting
SciTech SNAP Graphics PE contains all of the features found in the Enterprise Edition, including advanced acceleration, custom mode support and powerful display control. In fact the only real difference between the commercial product and the non-commercial version is the license. In addition to the license difference the personal edition includes support for a single graphics device, which you specify in your user profile. This can be easily changed at anytime to accommodate upgrades to your hardware or supported operating system. Should you require support for multiple chipsets and or need a solution for non-personal use i.e. an office environment you can easily upgrade "PE" to either the ENT or IES commercial editions.

SciTech SNAP Graphics PE, is provided under the terms of our non-commercial use license, which allows registered users to benefit from the product in a non-commercial environment free of charge.
will have to look into it tonight.

New In February 2005 the full version was $36.95.
That's the last time I bought it (v3.x).

Big advantage of the full version is you can shut down the computer, yank the video card and put in a different one and OS/2 comes up just fine.

New That's slick
$37's not bad to get it to work on the MacBook even though I won't be swapping video cards on it. If that SNAP PE doesn't work out I'll drop them a note.

New They only list a 5-user license for $157.
that's a bit rich. They offer My SciTech PE (Personal Edition) for free use, where they'll generate a driver supporting 1 chipset however it doesn't have an option for VESA VBE 2.0, which is what Parallels presents to the guest OS. I tried generating one anyway on the off chance they would fall back to VESA mode, but they don't.

I've dropped them a note asking if they'll sell a 1 user license or if they'll add VESA as an option for My SciTech PE.

New I don't think they understood
I received a link w/keys for the old, unsupported, SDD drivers for DOS and Windows.

New They understood this time. It's still $36.95.
It's been purchased, just awaiting the keys

New Been using SNAP for the last couple of years. Me likey.
New SNAP does 1280x800 !
I'm liking it!

The "dial up" feature doesn't work though, it fails with "unable to add" for anything resolution I attempted. I guess it doesn't like the simulated video card.

New figured out custom resolutions
There's a Custom Resolution settings under Parallels that must be enabled, along with telling Parallels what custom resolutions to allow. Once I did that, SNAP's gamode command worked as expected :)
