I was reading the Marvel G400 on Sharkey's Extreme (www.sharkeyextreme.com), and caught this little blurb that you Tribes players with a G400 might be interested in:

"Unfortunately, we did run into a bit of trouble with game compatibility on the Marvel. Starsiege: Tribes does not like the Marvel at all and has major graphical glitches. Tribes has historically had poor OpenGL support so this does not come as much surprise. We were told that Matrox is talking to Dynamix to see how the situation can be rectified. If you're a major Tribes addict be prepared to play in software mode because 3D acceleration may not work. Otherwise we have had no trouble with compatibility."

I like the fact that Sharkey's wasn't so stupid as to put the blame on Matrox. I love it when a reviewer point his finger in the RIGHT direction.

yeah, Its gonna have to be for TRIBES 2 though... As was mentioned on the Sierra Tribes Forum- Its crazy to think that a game a year old, would re-optomize itself to work on future cards. The OpenGL in Tribes is bad. really bad.. I hope that they get something for you guys soon... In the meantime enjoy beautiful Half-Life... and we will enjoy Beautiful tribes....
