I have a gforce2 GTS and everything works fine and then I shut down do to rendering. Any one know why this is happening. I have a P4 with 384 Ram and my video card is Gfroce2 64, why do I get rendering errors?

I suggest this post get moved to the troubleshooting area... Prolly get more solid answers outta there.
Shut down due to rendering? Do you get an error message?
A few things you might want to try:
-In your BIOS, turn OFF AGP Fast-Write.
-Try setting your AGP slot to 2x instead of 4x.
In Display Properties -> Settings -> Advanced -> GeForce -> Additional Properties -> D3D settings
Turn OFF Anti-aliasing. By default it is set to auto mode. Anti-aliasing is pretty much useless. It gives no real visible difference and simply turning it off can actually give you a few more FPS as well as prevent abstract errors.
In the OpenGL tab, turn OFF Fog Table Emulation. UT doesn't run in OpenGL mode, but it's a good thing to turn off in any case while you're there.
If none of the above works, just for curiosities sake go into My Computer (I assume you're running Win98) -> Properties -> Performance, and put the Graphic Acceleration slider down one notch. Then try UT and see if you get the rendering errors. It's a temporary fix. While it may fix your problem, there is no reason why you should have to run your PC with anything less than full hardware acceleration. It just helps narrow down the problem.
Update your video drivers. Use the most recent from nVidia.
Depending on your Motherboard, you may want to check for updated AGP drivers. Most likely you have an AMD or VIA chipset. If you don't feel comfortable toying with your MoBo, just post your entire system specs and I'll put up some links to drivers and some brief instructions.

And by the way I am running XP not 98, I have a P4, 356 Ram and a Gforce2 64 video card. My system should work with not errors but I do get a rendiring error from time to time and yes it is a huge error message.
01-22-2002, 01:07 PM
Is it the huge error message that fills up the whole screen? If so I get that too, but it doesnt bother me to much...
I think there may be more lines in that error message than lines of code for UT hehehe
I need to know what Motherboard you have Boobs :)
Which drivers are you using for your video card? There are 2 WinXP drivers for a GeForce2 on the nVidia website. One is a 64-bit driver and the other is a WinXP standard driver. DO NOT use the 64-bit driver as that is for a special 64-bit version of WindowsXP. Use the Standard WinXP driver. If you haven't updated your drivers in a while, now is a good time.

I will look and see what motherboard I have, I have loaded the latest drivers and they are not the 64bit. By the way yes the error message does fill up the whole screen and the reason it bothers me is that is shuts down unreal. This would not be that big of a problem but it always happens when I am having one of my few good games and when you suck like I do you do not want to get bounced when you are going good.

Ahhh I see, I never have this "having a good game" problem since I don't think I ever have had one where I'm doing good. :D

damn F7.. mr.. technical over there :)
Boobs since you're running XP and I am too, we could try the Remote Desktop feature if you like.
That goes for anyone running XP and has problems.

I had good luck with the 22.80 drivers on that card.
Do not use the 23.11 drivers as your framerate will most likely decrease.
I use 23.11 on a GeForce2 GTS 64MB and get 60+ FPS. :D
01-23-2002, 02:05 PM
I am pretty sure I am using the 23.11 also(I am at work) and I have no problem with the fram rate. The only problem I have is when I get a redering error. When I do not get this error UT runs great(I suck)but the game works great.

Have you tried the 22.40 or 22.80 drivers? I was using the 23.11 as I have (2) Geforce2 GTS cards and (1) Geforce3 TI 500 cards and it jumped my framerate no less than 10fps per card.

Hey I have a geforce 2 gts 64, have never updated the drivers on it but I remember when I had my old voodoo2 card that changing drivers could get messy if not done properly. Could one of you guys post the proper procedure for updating drivers on the geforce2? Specifically, where do the drivers reside in the system? Are they in one spot? can I delete them from add/remove programs? etc. I'm running win98se.
Thanks in advance for any help.

The best thing to do is get the program called Detonator Destroyer. This will wipe out old version of your drivers.
Voodoo files is a good site for all drivers and tweak utilities. I also use the beta version of GTU(GeForce Tweak Utility) off of that site.
This helped my framerates and tweaked the card for my wants. ie, anti-aliasing off and others.

I dont know if i would ever run a program called Detonator Destroyer on my computer lol
01-24-2002, 05:48 PM
I'll try that site.
