Today I finished with the TNT2 M64. I find it interesting how close it is in early games (GLQuake, Quake 2, Prince of Persia 3D, Need for Speed 4) to the full TNT2. It really isn't until very post-2000 games Like Medal of Honor Allied Assault and Colin McRae Rally 2.0 when the card really starts to suffer because of its memory bandwidth.
I've also tried to get something out of the Permedia 2 which came from a Sun server. I could make the test system boot if there is another graphics card with it (the M64), the system detects it, this driver installs, but I still can't get it to draw anything onto my screen.
Some time ago I've seen a topic on this forum where someone had the exact same card and managed to make it work, but I don't seem to have the same luck. What I get from there, with the drivers installed, it should post after Windows loaded, but mine doesn't. And the system won't boot if the Permedia is the only graphics card it has. Any tips?
