I think I'm going to have to start the list over again for version 2.1, so I don't know if I want to put to much effort into maintaining it before that release.

Nope, works wonderfully, add in 2x dual core AMD procs and 8Gb Ram it is quite fast. I HATE waiting on my workstation. The only trouble is that XP doesn't use the second proc ever. It just sits idle, unless I'm booted into Linux that is.

OK, you both need to tell me whether your card worked, and which version(s) of SGDK2 you're talking about. :)

Oh, it worked. I assumed that this thread was for supported cards.  So, the PNY built Nvidia Geforce9800GTX+ OC (overclocked) with 786 Mb Ram per card 2x cards) functions with SGDK1 and SDGK2 on WinXP SP3. I haven't tried SGDK2.1 on XP or in Ubuntu yet. I think there may be issues with the SLI on the cards. If I am not mistaken I don't believe OpenGL supports SLI fully.

The only issue with SGDK2 is framerate. It will spool out an unbelievable framerate in 1080p mode. However your brothers code makes that a moot point. Thanks Durnurd!

SGDK2.1 does have a built-in frame rate limiter as well, which helps, I'm sure.

There are a lot of hurdles to get over getting SGDK2.1 games to run in Ubuntu, but once you're over them, it's much easier the next time.  Admittedly, you still have to recompile the projects after removing a few calls to Windows APIs dealing with Joysticks that Mono doesn't support.

SmartBoy16, I'm having trouble locating details on what exactly the problem was on your system.  You said the map editor didn't work, but I can't find any mention of exactly what error message or behavior you're getting.
