Some old 3D accelerated games crash out on 5200
 
I upgraded to a GeForce FX5200. All new games work, and most older 3D accelerated games still work (eg. Thief 2)

I have a couple that don't though. RealMyst and Extreme G-2.

Both of them: I double click the icon, the screen goes black, the resolution changes (I can tell because the hour glass cursor gets bigger), then it goes back to the desktop and goes back to the desktop resolution.

Another computer we have, runs RealMyst fine; it uses a GeForce 4.
Both computers are running XP and no additional tweaking (eg. compatability mode) was needed to get RealMyst working, which makes me think its my graphics card (the 5200) that is the problem.

(Haven't tested Extreme G-2 on the GeForce 4 computer yet, which I'm going to do when I get home.)


Seems to me that the 5200 won't work with RealMyst or Extreme G-2. Any ideas?

What drivers are you using? It seems the 53.03 give the best results for Geforce FX folks. Try them if you aren't already using them.

Ah, I have heard about the 53.03 drivers, but I was always afraid of downgrading, and losing some special effects in Doom3 :)

But if they were created when the FX5200 was already out, then I guess I have nothing to worry about :)

Thanks for the tip - am downloading them now and going to try them out.

What's 3D Analyze ragejg? I did a google search and got some german pages...

BTW - Extreme G-2 screws up on the GeForce4 computer AS WELL. Hopefully this driver works. Thanks again einstein_314 :)
