same thing with linux. ATI are finally starting to do some work though it's not a huge amount.

anyway I thought the new ATI cards have support for all opengl up to 2.0, but they just haven't activated it in the drivers yet cos it's not used?

OGL2 isn't done yet. OGL1.5, which is basically what OGL2 was supposed to be, just came out, so I assume ATI is working on a GLSLang compiler and will release drivers by 2004 (not like anything will use it before then anyway).

It sounded more like resignation and despair to me, but whatever floats your boat.

hey you never know around here. Well - actually, I bet if one did a #of posts vs. company preferance tally, the higher posts numbered ppl would probably prefer ATi atm...

...even back when GeForce 3's were new and stuff, was this place so anti-nvidia?

the anti-nvidia sentiment you speak of has been a growing voice of discontent since the nv30 delays started and then the eyebrows raised @ the things going on with that device and subsequent releases...

I dont think consumers in general like being lied to...

I can think of several games that have Built in Support for OpenGL and arent what I'd consider "old" games./


Doom 3, Neverwinter Nights, NWN expansion. Warcraft 3. Wc3, The Frozen Throne. Unreal Tournament 2003.

I like the fact that DirectX exists. And I like what it stands for. The Day OpenGL completely dies out tho is the day I become a console gamer. OpenGL is the only reason Macintosh users even have games. Because its easily portable.

Theoretically more powerful? I think the word you are looking for is versatile.

well, from what Ive heard, it can do anything DirectX can do and more theoretically, you just gotta be good enough to know how to code it. I assume DirectX limits you to what it contains?
