large textures

So far i have been using textures at <= 256x256 pixels, this is for compatability with the older accelerator cards. What i am wondering is. What happens when i try to use a larger texture 1024x1024 with one of these cards. I can not test as i only have access to the TNT2 or better cards. No Voodoo here :frowning:

I know that creative released a driver for the voodoo2 that allows larger textures than the 256x256 what about others? Will the texture work or be cropped or something similar?

Thanks for your help in advance,


i tried a 2048x1024 texture on the g200, wich does not support texture larger than 1024: the texture tiled along the major axis, but glTexImage did upload it correctly.
