    Tried it but no matter how much I try, I can't get either demo to work with
    the patch. I have an ATI 9600 Pro so maybe I'm below min spec even for the
    ATI cards?

    Aha, with cat 4.4 - follow instructions in this link and you may at least
    get the dawn demo working (very spooky!). Can't yet get the dusk demo
    working though.

    I got both working by copying opengl32.dll to both directories (duck and
    dawn bin folder) as well as atioglxx.dll to both directories.

    looks nice but really left me wondering whats all the fuss about.

    The fuss when the Dawn demo was new was simply about being able
    to run a new, rinky dink cutting edge, Geforce 'exclusive' on
    an ATI card.

    Yep. The Dawn demo now works but still can't get the Dusk demo to work
    properly. It runs, but everything looks strange and dark - definitely not
    how its supposed to ;-)

    Either way, I probably agree with the consensus that they aren't _that_
    impressive. Didn't realise the Dawn demo was that old though <g>
    It obviously passed me by the first time around!

    How exactly did you get DUSK to work? Is it Dusk or Dusk Ultra you running?

    I can easily run Dawn demo on 9600SE, by copying opengl32.dll and
    atioglxx.dll to bin folder, then renaming fairy.exe to 3dmark03.exe.

    But what about dusk? That 26mb patch did nothing to run dusk on ati card.

    Uh.. and don't forget you can rename the main .exe file and get her
    nude. I think that was what the fuss was about. ;)

  9. Same goes for me. Dawn is fine and works well. However, can't get Dusk to
    run. I tried Dusk Ultra though. Didn't try regular Dusk. Also I'm running
    (9800pro 128mb).
