    hmmm, not yet.... but hope never dies.

    would be nice to have a working patch script.

    i hope the guy in china that is releasing those already modified drivers will make his patch scripts available. would be very nice from him. but till then i guess we will not have a modified mobility hd2600.

    sorry, I'm new to these mods, can someone please tell me what all these programs you're benching in and will the mods improve 3dmark benches and games,

    Thanks.

    Yeah legolasgleaf! That would be great!! I know it's not easy as I could read an attempt to change the drivers before on this forum but a step by step procedure would be nice...

    sorry to disappoint you guys, but without a proper patchscript it´s not possible.

    and by the way i´ve already tried to alter only the device id in the driver.inf from the patched drivers. and guess what --- it does not work.

    besides it does not work, the driver you´ll find at newdisk.cn/?wesley8 only supports a max resolution of 1450 x 1080. If you have a wsxga+ you´ll need to add this resolution to the driver. And powerplay is not supported either. Have not tried it yet to mod the driver with dh mod tool, but even if you have added the resolution you need and added the mobility features, it does not work, since you cannot patch the atim2tag.sys without a proper script.

    if somebody would help out with a patch script that would be really nice. But without it, it´s as i´ve already said :

    without a script i does not work !

    hope somebody will come up with such a script someday.

    HD2600XT AGP FireGL Mod Possible?

    I'm still using an AGP card (6800GT @ FX4000) & am wondering if it is possible to mod the AGP version of the HD2600XT cards.
    I can get one of these in the UK for approx £63 (256 MB DDR3), which is damn cheap in my eyes if it does what everyone is saying it can do.
    My question is:
    Can this be modded to a FireGL V5600?
    I am unsure, so any help would be much appreciated.
    I know I should really move to PCi-E but my trusty A64 is running stably at 3.1GHz & really quite nice for modelling in SolidWorks & UG NX4. However, when using NX4, the G/Card really struggles & this is where I could do with the upgrade.
    Be great to get some response.
    Great work everyone & hopefully hear from you soon.

    Yes the hd 2600 can be modded to a firegl. Dont mean to be a prick or anything...but read the thread before asking questions...all the info you need is in the first post. Click link to original thread and theres a link to download location for the drivers and info from slews of other users about the 2600. I had to go look around to find this out for you...You can do the same.

    Good Luck

    POlypusher,
    I understand teh PCi-E version can be modded, but I have asked perviouslt if the X1950AGP can be modded & have been told no as there is no FireGL card based on the AGP version.
    I am asking if the same applies with this as it is a driver file, not a patch script that is used to make the mod.
    I have not heard of any instances of the AGP card being modded (although I'm very happy to be proved wrong).

    So the answer is yes or no?
    Am very interested in finding if it can be done.

    Hopefully soon...

    patchscript for mobility radeon hd 2600 / 32 bit

    hey guys, since the patchscript for 64 bit drivers showed up, i did a little digging at the newbietech forum.

    and guess who is doing the patchscripts there ....

    it´s huangyan !!
    he was here about a year ago and made the patchscripts for the x 1xxx series. since some weeks he hasn´t shown up at newbietech either, but he posted his patchscripts for 8.391 driver. maybe a proper script for the 8.44 driver will show up also... at least i hope so.

    and here´s the good news for the owners of a hd 2600 mobility, there´s a patchscript in which the device id for the mobility hd 2600 and hd 2600xt can be added.
    these device id´s need to be changed to have the mobility cards modded.

    the device id´s for the firegl 3600 is 958d
    the device id for the hd 2600 mobility is 9581

    the device id´s for the firegl 5600 is 958C
    the device id for the hd 2600xt is 9583


    these device id´s just have to be changed and we can force the hd2600 mobility to work as a firegl 3600. the mobility features will probably not work.

    the bad news is, the patchscript is not yet modified for patching the hd2600m device id to the atim2tag.sys.
    i hope someone here can help out and show how the device id can be changed

    I can't understand a word of all that, but it surely sounds like we will have 64bit modded drivers soon (or at least a patchscript to mod them, which is nearly the same, just a bit less convenient)

    @ normanbates

    the 64 bit patchscript for x1x00 desktop cards is already available for some days now. you might wanna check :

    http://forums.guru3d.com/showthread.php?t=247612

    my aim is to get the drivers for mobility cards like the hd 2600m and the hd 2600m xt for xp 32 bit modded. Thats why i posted the patchscript here.

    If anybody please be so kind to give a little help with changing the device id´s in the patchscript i posted on the previous page.....

    i do hope there is someone out there that knows how to read this hex code stuff......

    update

    i just found out that i actually need to edit only one digit in the script to force the opengl capabilities

    For the hd 2600 mobility ( device id 9581 )
    this is the change i made to force the opengl capabilities :
    Dst8_1 = 0F B7 85 FE FE FF FF 66 25 00 00 66 0D 81 95 66 89 85 FE FE FF FF 90

    if you want to use this script with a mobility hd 2600xt ( device id 9583 ) you just would need to change the Dst8 like this :
    Dst8_1 = 0F B7 85 FE FE FF FF 66 25 00 00 66 0D 83 95 66 89 85 FE FE FF FF 90

    all you need to do is follow these steps :

    - download the the 8.391 driver from ati :
    http://ati.amd.com/support/drivers/xp/previous/firegl/fireglv-8-391-2-1-1-1-xp.html

    extract the driver ( start install - the driver files will be extracted to c:\amd... - cancel install )

    - apply the patchscript to ati2mtag.sy_ in the driver folder ( choose force firegl5600 )
    - open the driver inf file ( should look like this CX5xxxx.inf )
    - change the device id for the fire gl 5600
    from "ATI FireGL V5600" = ati2mtag_RV630GL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_958C
    to "ATI FireGL V5600" = ati2mtag_RV630GL, PCI\VEN_1002&DEV_9581

    - save the changes and install the graphics card driver manually ( with the have disk option) and voila you´ll have a fully working mobility firegl card !!!

    right now i have not tested if the ccc will show the professional settings, but i guess not, since this one probably needs to be patched too, to get the pro settings.

    but i can assure you it´s working, just had a quickrun through specviewperf´s maya02 test.
    the mod from hd2600 mobility to a mobility firegl 5600 gave me a boost from 24 to 106.
    so i guess the mod is working good. will test a little more and let you know of my experiences.

    anyway, here´s the script again for modding win xp 32 bit drivers :

    Ok, i've read through 3 threads and i'm already tired, I keep hearing 2600xt to v3600, 2600xt to v5600, 2900xt to v8600, ok this is my question. What card is used for the v7600 the only card I can find that matches the specs for that card is HD 3870, so what card are you using when you test the v7600 softmod?

    I believe this is what you can do:
    2600pro -> v3600
    2600xt --> v5600
    2900pro -> v7600
    2900xt --> v8600

    as for 64bit patchscripts, I thought those new ones were only for X1xxx cards; if anyone manages to mod a X2xxx card under XP64, please report!!!
