Anybody know way how to do fast lights and realistic(gl_lights - slow)? I saw per_pixel lights on NVidia site, but it for GForce card(i have Riva TNT2). Does anybody know where i can find some information or CODE(better)?

You need register combiners which your card doesn't support. They're only available on the GeForce family.

Incidentally, per-pixel lighting on GeForce class cards is MUCH slower than just using the standard OpenGL lighting.

For a TNT2, pre-calculated lightmaps on static geometry is probably the best you are going to get.
