Supported Video Card List
« on: 2007-09-06, 05:54:36 AM »
Everyone, please help me fill out the list of supported and un-supported video cards by reporting your video card and whether or not the map editor works on your video card (if it's not already listed).  Just reply to this message with your info.  To get your video info/name, right-click on your desktop and select "Properties", switch to the "Settings" tab and click "Advanced", then look at the "Adapter" tab.  If SGDK2 is failing on your video card, please also note the driver you are using, then try visiting the web site for your video card's manufacturer and downloading the most current driver.  After the most current driver is installed, report your results before and after updating the driver so that I can also provide detailed info about which drivers do and do not work for particular cards. Here's the complete list, which I will edit as I get more info:

SGDK 2.0:
Supported:
  • ATI Radeon Xpress (CATALYST driver 07.8)
  • Intel(R) 82945G Express Chipset Family (Intel driver version 6.14.10.4410)
  • NVIDIA GeForce 5900
  • NVIDIA GeForce 6200
  • NVIDIA GeForce 6610 XL
  • NVIDIA GeForce 7600 GS
  • NVIDIA GeForce 7800 GT
  • NVIDIA GeForce 8800
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GTX+
  • NVIDIA Geforce FX 5200 (NVIDIA Driver version 5.2.1.6 - nv4_mini.sys version 6.14.10.5216)
  • NVIDIA MX440
  • Radeon X800 Series
  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 770M

Unsupported:
  • Intel 80810e
  • Intel 810e
  • RIVA TNT2
  • SiS 630/730
  • 3Dfx Voodoo 5

SGDK 2.1
SGDK2.1 has been tested on a number of video cards.  From this you can probably draw conclusions about many other cards, but I will just list the specific individual cards.  In most cases, the whole series of similar cards probably behave about the same.

Tested successfully on:
  • ATI Radeon HD3850
  • ATI Radeon HD4870
  • ATI Radeon HD4890
  • ATI Radeon HD5770
  • ATI Radeon Xpress 1150
  • ATI Radeon X1200
  • ATI Radeon x600
  • Intel 946GZ Express Chipset Family
  • NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 (nv4_disp.dll version 6.14.0011.7519)
  • NVIDIA 7600GS AGP
  • NVIDIA GeForce 7600gt
  • NVidia GeForce 8600gt
  • NVIDIA GeForce 8800 Ultra
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9500 PCI-E
  • NVIDIA GeForce 9800gt
  • NVIDIA Quadro FX 770M
  • NVidia GeForce GTS250
  • NVidia GeForce GTX275

Unsupported:
  • 3Dfx Voodoo 5? (Has not been tested since the release of 2.1.9, which introduces better video support)

ATI Radeon Xpress series works, as long as you update your drivers... (the older drivers that came with my comp dont work)

I think it's the CATALYST version you'd need to worry about.

GEFORCE 6200 works.
To be consistent, could you tell me the name exactly as it appears in the "Adapter" tab of the dialog that appears from the "Advanced" button of Display Properties->Settings?  I suspect it starts with "NVIDIA".

the SiS 630/730 (05-23-2001) drivers for win98 dont work (no WHQL, something that microsoft signs to make sure that the drivers will be compatable. since DX9, they didnt sign drivers for Win98. same is true for the Intel 80810e drivers :()

You can add Geforce 6800 to that "supported" list. :)
