What video card do you have?
do you have the current video drivers for it?

I mean the ones from the card's chipset company, not the ones that come with windows or the card. Many games use DirectX on windows, and BZ uses OpenGL. Often the default windows drivers do not produce good OpenGL performance.

You don't download OpenGL. You download the drivers for your specific video card.

go to the start menu, click on run, and type: Dxdiag

then click on the display tab. That will give you info on your video card, under the "device info" field.

We need that info to help you.

My video card is a RADEON 9600 SERIES.

I googled for RADEON 9600 drivers and after downloading and installing them everything is perfect!!!

Win XP: don't point to many fingers, you were guilty of the same.

I only pointed one finger :--p


And, besides, that comment wasn't meant to be pointed directly at this thread...

Also, if a person changes (ish) are they still allowed to poke fun? I would think so...

Regarding the topic title, I don't have any problems with Win XP... I think he is a really nice guy who has come around in the last year or so. ;) He is also a pretty good (dare I say great) 3D modeler.
