Your right. I checked the Monster II 3D manual and it supports a maximum of 65,000 colors (16^2=65,536 so it supports only 16 bit color). Its the AGP graphics card that I had set to 32bit color (the Monster II 3D cards pass their video thru the AGP card). Also, the Unreal documentation states that the runs best in 32 bit mode.
I'm getting ready to switch the two Monster II 3D cards over to my 800 Mhz machine. I will report back on what "doubling the processor speed" does to game play, while these cards are passing their video thru a CL annihilator Pro.

Well, the latest patch for Unreal (original) VASTLY improves the Direct3D support up to the same sort of level as Unreal Tournament. I have run Unreal original in D3D on a TNT2Ultra and a Geforce and it is SILKY. Better than when I had V2/SLI even.
I suggest you grab the 226a patch for Unreal (225 patch is still crap), and D3D should fly on your Geforce.
Hey Thanks .... That's it .... I'm running the 225 patch.
I have just put my two monster II 3D boards in my 800 Mhz machine (PIII 600e overclocked to 800Mhz on an ASUS 440BX motherboard). The game play itself is silk, but theres no switch in the control panel to turn off the Monster II 3D cards so I have to remove the cards in the device manager to run the Creative Labs Annihilator Pro.
