    Has anyone else had trouble running the Nvidia Dawn demo using the opengl

    Im using the latest catalyst drivers, Direct X 9.0b and installed the
    wrapper dll as instructed but every time I run the demo I just get "This
    program requires an NVIDIA GeForceFX-class GPU or better to run. Unsupported
    features: NV Point Sprite"

    I have a 128MB Radeon 9700 Pro running at 8xAGP on Windows XP Pro SP1

    Would be really greatful for some help.

  3. I could run it fine until I installed DirectX 9.0b.
    After the install I would get the same message.

    She took her clothes off for me, I didn't get any further though.

    Just go back to the 3.6 drivers and it will work just fine again. It is not
    DirectX. Same problem here, I just reinstalled the 3.6 suite over the 3.7
    suite and it works again. Thanks ATI.

    Also runs fine here. DX9.0b and Cat 3.6

    It WILL NOT work with the new Cat 3.7's as an extension is now exposed in a
    different way and a call the wrapper is making now fails (or at least that's
    the excuse I've heard).

    I don't think making sure Dawn is working should be a priority for ATI, I'd
    prefer it if they spent more time on actual game fixes ;-)

    I'm still using 3.6 anyway as not having any / many probs (BF1942 doesn't
    stutter if you spend a little time tweaking the shit out of it, works fine
    for me now and no other probs to speak of apart from sound lag in OGL games
    which is down to my SBLive I reckon... *smacks it*).

    Interesting... seems a bit weird that they'd change an interface - or maybe
    the wrapper is using an "undocumented" feature.

    Oh well, I've seen Dawn naked now, I won't feel a great loss in upgrading to
    the Cat3.7s :p

    up to date ones!
