First post, so please be gentle 😉
I really like the game Tie Fighter, and my favourite version is the DOS CD Collectors Edition. Sadly you cant run it in SVGA on many "recent" graphics cards, because their VESA support is not good enough (I think the game uses VESA 2.0). I would like peoples opinions on the best performing graphics card that still has good VESA support. Ideally I would like to play both Tie Fighter (VESA2.0) and NWN (OpenGL) on the same card...
My Radeon 9700's VESA is not good enough, and I read posts from other people saying that the GF4s and above are bad at VESA support too.
It works fine on a Voodoo3 AGP, but its OpenGL performance isnt really good enough for NWN. I have a TNT2 Ultra, but it would be good to use a better one if possible. The rest of the PC is...
AWE64Gold (The Midi Music in this version of TieFighter is great on this)
Voodoo2 12MB PCI
Anyone have any opinion / experience with this? Which cards would you recommend?
Thanks for any help / advice,
