I used the search option and read a lot of threads and guides on modding SE2PRO but still got some "general" questions which I hope you can all easily answer First of all, I have Club3D 9800SE softmodded to PRO and it's working fine..no artifacts whatsoever. There's been a couple of game crashes which required a cold restart but I can't directly connect it to my softmod.. should I worry about this? Is there a "suggested" time period in which I should use only softmod before proceding to hardmod..in case of errors and better testing of mod compatibility?? Anyway, I'm planning to hardmod it but I wanna know everything there is to know about it first..I'm waiting for my spare PCI vga card to arrive so can't mod it right now. So I was wondering, how often happens that flashing "goes wrong" and I have to use a PCI card to restore the BIOS to the "working version"?? And ih that actually happens, is it possible that I won't be able to restore my BIOS and lose my card for good? Cause that's my worst fear, everything else is bearable.. And I was thinking of editing PRO BIOS a bit just to increase my clocks to 400/350..it wouldn't effect my temp and it would be a small performance boost.. BTW, I'm cooling it with Zalman's ZM80D-HP passive cooler with the side fan attached..and ANOTHER fan on the side of my case is blowin fresh air directly at it so the card is cold enough at all times.. And one of bigger questions, when I finally mod the card: short circuit the resistor and flash the BIOS, in case of an error, and in case I realize that hardmod isn't working and I have to go back to softmod or no mod at all.. is it possible to "inverse" the procedure? That all for now.. hope you aren't sick of questions about modding 9800SE..and thanks for posting in advance..
