    Opengl programs with VC++ slow with Voodoo2 12MB card

    I have a PI-233 MHz, 64MB RAM, i've just bought a Voodoo2 12MB card. I've downloaded a driver which has speeded up most of the games that i play.

    However, my opengl (with VC6 - win98) programs are still the same speed as before (i.e. they're not using the card)

    Where may i find the right driver to do so...

    Also, i don't have an internet connection at home. So, it would be a whole lot better if you can give me some downloadable driver address, which i might be able to save on floppies...

    thanx in advance

    Voodoo cards don't support OpenGL straightly. Try installing WickedGL drivers for your card.
    Making error is human, but for messing things thoroughly it takes a computer

    Voodoo cards DO support OpenGL, i use a voodoo 3 and OpenGL is great on it, with the offical drivers.

    I dont think voodoo2 supported it.

    You should be able to find a voodoo 3 for about 50$, and a geforce2 64meg mmx can be grabbed for about 140$.

    find the latest drivers for the card it should work then... otherwise it may be the card is just slow.
