Nvidia\Creative Drivers for TNT2
Jul 23rd, 2008 at 1:34pm
Print Post  
I was sorting through my old disks when I came across the drivers for my old NVidia TNT-2 Drivers

I remember using these in glide mode (I might have been running a wrapper, but I don't remember)

I heard that creative released a special version of the drivers or something that enabled dynamic shadows and decals.
THIS IS THAT DRIVER!

I remember playing Unreal Gold. Decals worked, and I think i remember seeing shadows too but I was very young and i didn't pay attention to all the technical bits Tongue

I still may have the card. It's in my cousin's computer Tongue

I don't know how to attach files.

Hope this helps with the development of the oldunreal projects

sry, didn't notice this post yet Wink - pretty busy with 227.
Well, this version is known, there is even a hacked version somewhere (here is an old post in the forums) which works without this TNT2 card. But unfortunately its a dead end also, because the code on which it is based, is not available or even completely lost. The idea to have realtime shadows is an old wish of all Unreal players I think, but currently there seems to be no way to realize it...

i have the hacked version somewhere on my old IDE drive... can't remember where i got it from though (hyper or dinwitty know maybe?)

unfortunately it required version 219/220 and even then it never worked here. The installer check is bypassed (repacked), so is the startup check, but the renderer doesnt work, crash or revert to software...

hell even on my other pc with a diamond tnt1 it doesn't work, apparantly it refuses to work on DIAMOND tnt1 cards and only works on RIVA tnt1 specific ones.
