Hi Guys,

I can remember when Win2k came out it was like, YES now we have got the stability (sic?) of NT with the plug'n'pray technology of windows 98 and OpenGL support for games.

Groovy I thinks but it has sadly annoyed me because I have never ever got anything to work in OpenGL on windows 2000 with my Voodoo except my screen saver.

I would appreciate any suggestions before I say farewell to the old stalworts and get a radeon. I am trying to console myself with getting Homeworld to work with Babylon 5 mods since HW2 is a no-go. Guess what? B5 mod (great wars III) only works in OpenGL or software.

GrrRAR my life has been nothing but stress since satan delivered me homeworld 2 for Christmas. I really ought to know better.

Thanks, David.

Current video drivers for Windows 2000 and XP environments allow now good performance to hardware video processors with OpenGL istructions subset for games. This's true for 3dfx, ATI and nVIDIA cards.

indeed, i think the problem is not windows 2000 or current voodoo drivers, but with your installment of them... try a clean install

Looks like I have got my work cut out. Rather than scrub my "useful disk with everything on it" I think I will slap a new hard drive in with removable frame since I got a few spares (got some pretty hefty partition juggling to do though to free them up!!) and then I can have a 'games' hard drive seperate from all my personal data so I can just keep reformatting it 'n all that if I need to. We're getting there! Thanks, David.
