    Banshee vs TNT with Motocross Madness

    My 233MMX P5 system runs an STB Velocity 3D card. I just got Motocross Madness and it is a great game but the frame rates really sucks...MM uses a GLIDE engine which is supported by the Banshee but the TNT cards use multi-texturing and Banshee only single texture. (I am not sure if MM uses multi-texture). Anyone out there who has tried either card with this game or has suggestions ?...Am I making any sense ??
    Thanks....

    I have a pentium 233 MMX P5 on a Tyan Turbo 1671S Motherboard, 64 mb of SDRAM ,STB Velocity 3D with 8meg/PCI and a Sony 17" 200ES......I don't know what my actual frame rates are, as I don't know how to calculate them, but at the 400x300 setting (lowest) I still get a very jumpy picture that stops every now and then for a slpit second. If I increase the resolution to 640x480 it really gets slow...like maybe 2 or 3 frames a second,,,,,,,any ideas???

    you can try using the direct3d drivers instead of glide.

    Motocross Madness does not need / support
    Multitexturing. I think there's no game yet on market that needs / supports it...
    and it will take a while untill any game will
    really need it.
    For systems with lower processor:
    Cards with Riva 128 or intel chip or Voodoo1
    will be the best choice.
    Only the newer processors (333 up) will really take everything out of chips like Riva TNT.
    On systems like P200 the difference between Voodoo1 and Voodoo2 is not high...so Voodoo1
    is better here.
    Voodoo Banshee might be a good choice but i think there might be also not much difference to Voodoo1...So a Card like
    Voodoo1 would be best here...that's my oppinion.
