    Thanks! I think Warp3d will be an issue thought, not a huge loss for me as I prefer to use the radeon.

    Will do a proper video with sound at some point!

    Just a bit of fun, I tested with a Voodoo 3 and was able to get Warp3D going in 68k but sadly not PPC at the moment. PPC + Warp3D can't open the screen and/or you get a PPC exception.

    Managed to get Shogo to run in Software Rendering off the PPC but after the menu it gives a garbage screen!

    Tried today to get an Apocalypse G4 working with the A1200, no go sadly but at least I have one here in case an A4000 lands on my doorstep!

    Hedeon has said that there's no 128mb support for the (unsupported) TX 1200 which is a shame as the K1 card runs fantastic and stable on my setup, it would have been amazing to get G4 speeds but guess it wasn't meant to be.

    Here are the cards:

    As for the build quality of the Blackbox tower: Just Google "Zalmann R1" and be surprised (not necessarily in a positive way.)

    I sold my Blackbox a short while ago, and never really fell in love with it. It just felt cramped and somehow cheapish. I also disliked the side window, because I found it very hard to tidy up the cables with FastATA, Mediator, front USB and Sound connection, etc.

    So, you have my deepest respect for your journey!

    Hey torsti76, thanks for looking at my thread.

    For sure there's some issues with the quality, I agree regarding keeping cables tidy but it was the same in the old days, you can make it nice with some effort.

    I like the look of the case and all seems to fuction well so it'll do!

    On another positive note I managed to get the WOS version of Duke3D to run last night.

    Just sharing some Quake Timedemos, this is with the Bigfoot Killer Networks K1 @ 333mhz. Timtheloon is kindly sending me his M1 @400mhz which also has 266mhz bus instead of 133mhz so be interesting to see how that translates into performance.


    Timedemo 1:





    Timedemo 2:





    Timedemo 3:





    Play-though 3 levels (stability test) this was after running all 3 demos.
