I have a GEFORCE 256 card and win2000. I downloaded the latest driver and installed it from nvidia.
But, I do this:
char *card = (char*)glGetString(GL_VENDOR);
printf("3D Card Vendor: [%s]\n",card);
card = (char*)glGetString(GL_RENDERER);
printf("3D Card : [%s]\n",card);
and it says "Microsoft Corporation" and "GDI Generic".
But under hardware devices in windows it says it is using the nvidia driver.
I tried setting my desktop to a low resolution, but that didn't help.
in the registry under WindowsNT\currentversion\opengldrivers, its default says nothing. Also it has a folder for RIVATNT (That seems strange)
The dxdiag shows my NVidia 256.
Does my bit depth matter?
Could somebody please help me? Thanks!
