So I bought a Nvidia Geforce4 MX 440 (the best I could get for a PCI slot) and the game still is inoperable.
It's superslow and in the UI it randomly jumps between options. I'm talking about the 070 release since the 071-beta didn't start up at all.
Completely unrelated: The site "glsetup.com" which is linked from the GLtron Homepage has been dead for several months now.
Kolya: That sounds like you're not getting hardware acceleration at all. Here's a couple of questions:
can you e-mail me stderr.txt and stdout.txt? (mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org)
driver: 188.8.131.5276 (the latest from nvidia.com)
I'll send you this information and the files you asked for in a mail. Thanks for your help!
Just so everyone knows, this issue has been resolved. If you're running win98, and have multiple graphics cards installed, disable all displays except for your primary, before you start GLtron.
Also, sometimes unplugging your joystick might help (I'm looking into fixing that too).
