Extreme Slowness

The computer I am running my project on happens to have a rather bad graphics card. An Aladdin TNT2 to be exact. It’s running windows XP, and I cannot get it to run any faster. What’s interesting is that the direct X demonstation on billboarding (Similiar to what I’m working on), runs around 20 fps, whereas when mine draws 2 triangles it runs at about 1.2 fps. And that’s on a good day. Any suggestions? The video properties don’t have an OGL tab to check or anything. I also noticed that when I ran the billboarding thing it said it was using Software Processing, presumably why it ran faster. Is there a way to do anything like this in OGL? Thanks.


Install a real driver. The standard windows-driver does not expose OpenGL funtionality.
