    Whenever I try to load Unreal, UT, or Deus Ex, I get an error message. "Unable to find DrawSprocket context:" I have a newer version than what is available from apple.com.

    I also get an OpenGL message from Q3A.

    is that on my G4 under OS 9? i recall the installer CD (or updated install files which i left on the desktop) for the Radeon card had an option to install draw sprocket stuff. i unchecked that because i thought it already had drawsprocket installed. maybe there is a special draw sprocket for the radeon. try running the installer again. i forget which one it is, there are 3 different files for the Radeon under OS 9. i remember one file was the "recommended" driver for 8.6+ (full driver), one was only for 9.1+ (update driver), and one was a video ROM flash updater or something. you don't need to install the ROM update again.

    YOUR G4??? :eek:

    yeah, I'll try that to see if it works. the error shows up after I choose the acceleration mode (RAVE or software). that might be it

    uh, I finally figured out the problem. I was using a 10" monitor, the best resolution it could do was 512. I just got a 19" monitor, it works fine, now.
