Hi,

I have installed a 3dfx PCI Card from Techworks (eBay) on my 7300/166 PPC. But it dosn¬Ąt work fine. It displays only black objects and the texture is missing.

any idea?

Thanx from Germany

It is specially for MacOS. The ROM doesn¬Ąt have to be flashed. The Card is called "Power 3D", Techworks based on 3dfx Voodoo Graphics.

Is is a Mac-compatible card or a PC one?. It might be that it's got the wrong firmware?

I thought there were some cards that would work cross-platform when flashed correctly.

Have you installed the appropriate drivers for the card from Techworks (http://www.techworks.com/support/drivers.html)?

Here are some of my old post about installing a 3dfx PCI VooDoo 3/3000 in my 7500. Therew is helpful info in them. Or search in "Video upgrades" for "3dfx" "voodoo"
