i havent really touched a computer for over a year (been on the road, which i still am thus have no fixed internet conection though the town im in at present has free internet thus i can do a bit, download files (not *.zip though they're banned) to chuck on the computer i have where im staying).
i have a gf-fx5200.
i downloading glsl yesterday first time ive delved into more advanced shading than nv_register_combiners and its beautiful.
anyways some questions
A/ the nvidia drivers dont seem to support looping (i get parsing errors with while or for), is this cause the hardware is not capable of this or hasnt it been added in yet?
B/ what are the best sites for further info, ive been to 3dlabs/nvidia developer (sdk to large though )/ati/humus are there any others? sorry to ask a question that can be found out with searching but i dont have the luxury of unlimited internet access
C/ i notice the new radeons seem to support textures of greater than 8bit, but i cant see any such function with my gf-fx5200 is it cause the hardware aint capable or cause its not yet exposed?
D/ why isnt doom3 out yet?
