For some reason I'm having major FPS drops anytime there is colored lighting in opengl games. I've tested Quake 2 and Half-Life.
If I shoot the blaster in Quake 2 for example, or certain areas of the map have colored lights, the framerate goes from 60 to probably around 10.
In Half-Life it was really obvious, perfectly solid framerate through the beginning of the game, then when I got the flashlight, it is around 10 fps when activated.
Celeron 600, Windows 98SE. I've tried both driver versions that support the G450 on Phils Computer labs website (Feb.2022 and May 2002), it made no difference. I've also updated the Intel 815ep chipset drivers.
I can't find anyone else with the same issue, I saw this youtube channel that demo's the video card in quake 2 and the uploader seemed to have no issues.

Any ideas on what to try?
