Hi, Ive recently changed pc, from a xp1800 with a Ge3, to a xp2800 with a Hercules 9800 pro. SW:Kotor looked very nice on the Ge3 (albeit it ran slow and I couldnt use AA etc!)
After upgrading I went back to playing it, and it looks nowhere near as good on the 9800 as it did on the old Ge3 card!, shiny surfaces etc look far duller and cruder, bloom/flare effects off reflective surfaces have all but gone.
Does anyone know what the possible cause is?, I assume it may be that the game was written for Nvidia specific opengl extensions(with the game being designed for Xbox), but im not sure, if so is there a work around or tweak that could replicate the effects on the ATI card? - I freely admit I havent got a clue when it comes to opengl etc.
Also a friend told me that ATI cards didnt natively support Opengl and cited this as the issue, this has confused me a bit - could someone clarify what this means by ‘native’, they clearly do support opengl otherwise the game wouldnt run!.
I have tried various configs and have reinstalled the game patched it etc.
Thanks in advance for any help/advice
