Ahh, those where the days... Nth Engines Birds Eye view was the thing I missed most when switching to Matrox graphics cards. I also remember the fiddling with jumpers / rocker switches on network cards, graphic cards and other ISA cards to get them to use different IRQ, DMA en I/O addresses. And particularly to optimize the I/O space so QEMM could make the most of upper memory. Oh, well....

Maybe I'm younger, I remember Nth Engine advertisements but what made me play in other league was Vibrant Graphics' Soft Engine. I was later purchased by Autodesk and most of its features were added to AutoCAD. People were astonished seeing me zooming and panning on a modest 386. I had a 40 MB hard drive when new. When I retired it, storage had grown up to 380 MB.
