71.84 was the last driver set to support the TNT line. NVIDIA finally dropped support for those chips after that. They have a driver archive on their site, or you can just go straight to the FTP server at ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/71.84

If those don't work, version 66.94 will. ftp://download.nvidia.com/Windows/66.94/

I've added back in TNT support in my INFs from version 31.00 onwards.
Which means 81.85 and 82.10 and some other should be workable with TNT cards.

Follow link in sig for drivers and modded INFs.

Enjoy.

[UPDATE] MY INFs are only for XP (32/64 bit) and Win 2K

That's why I didn't refer him to your site as he's running Win 98. ;)

So what's changed in the drivers that TNT support is no longer available? And aside from that, how can NVIIDA claim a "unified driver architecture" when the current drivers don't include TNT2 support?

Probably for same reason they don't support Riva 128 , decade old tech. Would be a waist of resource to support anything that old. "unified driver architecture" can be interpreted in many ways.

perhaps he runs a classic retro machine for old stuff and has a main pc for cool uber-tech stuff? if not....screams and runs into distance.

NVIDIA has a comprehensive driver archive on the FTP site I linked to above. Go through it and download a few Windows 98 compatible drivers and see which one works for you.

Its best to use v44.03 driver for the older cards up to GF4, regardless if your still running Win98 :eek: or better yet, WinXP :thumbsup:

Although our main PC has a 6800GT, I am still amazed just how fast one of our older PC with a TNT2U card (OC) still is.
It is heavily! OC and has been running great ever since 1998.
Has been running stuff like Falcon4, EECH and an incredible assortment of other games and sims.
For somewhat older games it still is a great card... really.
If that is not great Nv hardware, dunno what is.
IMHO, all nv hardware ever produced since TNT1 is a Classic (am I a fanboy or what).
