View Full Version : nVidia Graphics Cards

06 June 2002, 04:31 AM
Hi Friedns,

Recently I bought an ELSA GLadiac Graphics Card which has a GF2 Tilanium GPU. The card is ment for Game Graphics. It's amezing for gaming. performance is wonderful.

I use 3Ds Max. I have configured Open GL 1.3 driver for my viewports. It works well. Very smooth with the textures.

My problem is :

Is there a way to get a preview of fire and stuff on my view port itself ? Can I tweak my graphics card for that ? Smoke is coming well on view port. But I need fire and other particles on the view port. How do i get this ?

Can you please help me?

How is this fire? Are you using 3dsmax 4? Have you played the scene Viewport-Dragon.max to see if it goes right?
I can't understand your problem...

U R right dude!

I tryed viewport-dragan and it's working perfectly.
But I created a candle with a flame.

But I was unable to see the flame.
Why is that?
