Hi all,

Having just got my company to buy me a shiny new 'puter
with an obscene specification, I've got a couple of general questions...

My machine now has a total of 20MB of video memory,
12 MB of which is held on the Voodoo II card.
The machine is running NT4, and as such, NOT running
Direct X 5...

What public/demoware is out there that takes
advantage of the hardware to make things look pretty? :)

I currently have the VoodooLights screensaver,
but want a few new things to make it look good.....

Url's puh-lease!

I'm not sure if you're aware of what VoodooII is actually for, it's actually a 3D gaming chipset.  You won't be able make much use of it under NT4, the current VoodooII NT driver provide you with OpenGL supports, and that's it.  You won't be able to use it with DirectX at all.  You'll be able to run some OpenGL games, like Unreal or QuakeII, but not many titles out does support OpenGL API.  If all you want is screen savers, then here a good place to look:

But I would suggest take the board home and plug it in your Win95 or 98 machines...
