V3 3000 PCI, unofficial drivers, bugs... *help* -
| posts: n/a
Well, since I've fried my Hercules Prophet II GeForce2 Ti 64MB, I'm currently using my old V3 3000PCI.
Seeing as how I got less then 30 FPS in Half-Life games, I knew something was wrong. I have a:
-V3 3000 PCI with 16 big ones
I read Kaos' sticky threads and downloaded the underground 1.09XP drivers... I know get at least 30+ FPS (averaging 60FPS) in TFC on 32 people servers. My FPS basically doubled (and then some). I used to run Natural Selection at 4-30 FPS, and I now get 30-75 FPS (averaging 45 instead of 15).
Only downside to this... I get graphical bugs, glitches, errors, trash, what have you... on every world texture. My system seems to have problem with decals.
If a wall gets damaged, instead of showing an explosion decal, or bullet hole, it sometimes becomes all black. At other times Some textures are replaced by others... it kinda sucks because the black textures aren't lightened (ambiant lights do not affect the shading)...
So anyway, I'm sure you gurus know what to do in cases like these... .... do you?
