    Exclamation Asking a favor of anyone with a GeForce 3

    Hey all.
    I was wondering if anyone with a GeForce 3 would be able to do me a favor. I'm working on a project for the gamedev.net 4 Elements IV contest, and need to see what shaders it will run.
    http://pages.pomona.edu/~nrr02004/opengl.html
    The "Shaders" and "Programs" demos on this site can be used to test.

    If anyone can do this it will be a biiiiig help!
    Thanx.

    yea, the fact that they'll be judging with GF3's is a real pain, as I have to cripple the GL2.0 support in my engine for the contest
    Anyway..does anyone own a GF3??

    I still need to know if the GF3 will support these shading languages though.

    Hey! I have a GeForce Ti200 with 128MB RAM. I was about to try it until I came across `windows.h` and a `.exe` file , I use Linux. I was going to try wine but a virus deleted the C drive....ok ok I deleted the C drive accidently, but I'll think about reinstalling it in a little bit, how urgent is this?
    ------
    [edit]

    Aha! Got it, The first one worked great, and now I'm going to try the others :], alright check out these images:

    (GeForce3 doesn't seem to like Shaders, or fragments/vertexes(??))

    ...and yes I like FF music :]

    That problem could be because of wine, not neccessarilly the shaders.

    When I play UT2004 my website is down lol (I turn off all running apps).

    I'm sorry GeForce3 cards don't work for that, but I'm sure there's a way to cheat :], I mean UT2004, I'm sure they cheat to get those shades in there I suppose (maybe extra code I guess). Man this reminds me so much of browser compatability problems.

    Indeed they do. They somehow have the patience to write it to run in software as well.
