intel only has drivers for win9x on it's site. It says drivers for xp are included with xp, but there's no opengl support with
these drivers.(and with the win9x drivers there is)

Housen: I'm in the exact same boat... Saam O/S, same display adapter.

So far, from what I can tell it is more or less a waiting game at this point. Wait to see if drivers are developed or purchase a new graphics card.

I'll contact you if I find anything.

ps - I found something once that had to do with copying v.40 i740 drivers & editing the registry but I can't remember where I saw it or the method for doing so.

I found two links :

1)http://www.audit.kharkov.com/barry/maine.htm

2)http://www.audit.kharkov.com/barry/maine.htm

The first one is the registry thing you mentioned :

17.10.99
- Enable OpenGL for Intel i740 under Windows 2000 (info from NT Game Palace):
To enable OpenGL do the follow (Special Thanks go to Anthony Toste for that tip):
All you need is the win9x drivers from that copy gfxhelp.exe, gfxgldev.dll, gfxglicd.dll to c:\winnt\system32\ folder & you need to add this line to the Registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE, "Software\Microsoft\WindowsNT\CurrentVersion\OpenGL Drivers","gfxdrv",,"gfxglicd".
- i810 Drivers for Windows 2000 available at ftp://download.intel.com/design/motherbd/ca/w2k_dsk1.exe (Disk 1) and ftp://download.intel.com/design/motherbd/ca/w2k_dsk2.exe (Disk 2).

I tried to do this registry thing, but didn't succeed, maybe you have better luck?
(keep me posted)

The second link says :


INTEL: i740
win2kcd.zip
w2K i740 reference driver for Win2000.

w2ki740.zip
w2K Unofficial I740 reference driver for Win2000 (based on Intel PV 3.0). With OpenGL ICD support.

Especially the second file seems interesting, but i can't dld it, maybe you can (or maybe you find another site where this file is).

Could you keep me posted???

Can you check Hardware acceleration in the Direct3d options of directx, i can't...
This means i can only play software direct3d games... so for now no fifa2002 for me http://www.opengl.org/discussion_boards/ubb/frown.gif
Can you (WaDaFa) check this box under XP to play directx games using hardware direct3D?
