Quake 2 and my GeForce 2 setup

How do I take advantage of this video card with Quake 2. In the video selection panel, it dies when I select anything but software. I tried doing a glsetup from the web but they didn't have a matching driver. I'm sure this is easy, but I'm new at this. Thanks.

NVidia GeForce 2 GTS. Driver is updated 5/18/2000. Folders are nvmini.vxd and vmm32.vxd under that. Hope I got your question right.

P.S. Quake 3 arena works great.

Yes, I had to give Q2 a few tries when updating from Voodoo2 SLI to Elsa Gladiac.
Force the change to DefaultOpenGL driver, then to the desired resolution.
If you get crashes running DefaultOpenGL, you've got to solve some Hard/Software issues like AGP chipset drivers or transfer rate. What are your system specs please?

Well now, who are you then?

I would try using the 6.18 drivers. When I had q2 installed, it ran fine on my tnt2u. Have you ever had any 3dfx products in your machine? iD Software has always had good opengl products that usually ran fine on most people's systems.

I'm sorry, the 6.18 driver for what? I downloaded and installed what I thought was the latest nVidia driver yesterday. How do I tell driver release number? In the driver file details it shows 4.12.01.0522. I'm new at this....

Excuse me, but there's no GF2 GTS using SDR memory as far as I know...

see the last 4 digits? That is the driver version number (5.22). Head over to the video forum; you will find links to get the updated drivers.

Okay, that's done. shows 6.18 where it used to show 5.x. Still behaves the same in quake 2. Runs fast but only takes software i the option selection. If I select default opengl, it actually closes the app. Other selections kill the server but the app stays up.

Yep, got that yesterday - my but that was a long download. How do you check the version number from the game?

Bring down the console (~); it should be listed at the bottom.

But I am stumped on why you cannot play this game with your spanking gf2. If you still have the q2 upgrade, I would suggest uninstalling it and reinstalling it. Maybe something got fuxored on installation.

Thanks for the console tip. Checked it and it is indeed 3.20. Read the txt file and that upgrade talks much about adding video support for Linux but nothing for Windows. Would like to know if anyone else has Geforce 2 working with Q2 and how it's set up.

CLOSE THIS SUCKER! Found an old opengl32.dll file in my Quake2 directory. Must have been picking that up over my current windows version. Deleted that and all is well. Thanks for the help. And isn't it always version control.
