Weird graphics

I have recently bought starseige and Tribes and run them both fine under software acceleration mode just fine. The other day, I switched tribes to OpenGL and at first things were looking sweet. The character select screen was ultra smooth. However, when I get into the game, the ground texture is white, and projectiles fired in the game have black squares around them. I am running a 3D Labs permedia 2 chip, and I have already tried downloading the latest driver for it. Still no luck. Any help is much appreciated!

I do not know about your card but some older has problems with 3D graphics both in OpenGL and Direct3D. Ask 3D Labs.
