#557585 - 05/06/01 02:01 PM Any updates on Geforce problem?  



You mentioned that you hadn't seen my problem before (clipping problems and triangles). Still don't have a clue? It's really painful to look at the Typhoon shortcut on my desktop and knowing that it can't be played properly.

Now I've tried 5 or 6 different Detonator drivers (certified as well as uncertified), and the results are all the same. So it can't be a driver problem.

The last two remaining options I can see are:
1) That something is wrong with my Direct3D settings (see earlier post (Direct3D).
2) To format my hd and reinstall Windows. (But that does not give me a guarantee that it won't do the same trick again)

The light at the end of the tunnel for me is that I know that Typhoon CAN run on my system, since I have played it on this.

I'm using a Creative Geforce GTS2 and I used to have clipping problems when using Creatives latest drives (based on NVidias 6.50). So I first installed the registry key ForcesSWTnLOn from the game CD (directory Config/SWtnL) and this fixed the clipping problem.

I have since installed NVidias beta 12.00 drivers and the clipping problem is fixed when using the hardware T&L. The only downside is that the beta drivers are a bit slower than my Creative drivers.

By the way I'm using DirectX8.
Hell have no fury like a multiple sam launcher.

Elsa Erazor 2 MX - continuous clipping on Detonator 6.50s.

I switched to software T&L as suggested, and the prob was fixed - unfortunately at the cost of making the game less stable. I upgraded to the leaked 12.10s and now I get hardware T&L.

Unfortunately, now my X36 HOTAS has died... [g] (I was having severe problems with it long before I got EFT, so I don't think it's related. Maybe to the video drivers, but I don't see how.. )
