Hi there,

well, I also got a Kyro graphics card (3D Prophet 4500 w/ TV-out; Kyro II 64 MB), and I think it's a great gfx card.
It's even faster than a GeForce 2 MX-400 with most games that support high resolutions (i.e. 1024x768 and above), and it's sometimes even as fast as a GF2 GTS, although the Kyro is a low-budget card! :smash: :D

Anyhow, unfortunately the Kyro doesn't work well with Pete's D3D/OGL plugins for me... :(

With Pete's D3D gpu plugin 1.55 it's the common symptoms like Ninja mentioned. However with Pete's OpenGL gpu 1.55 most games work just fine here! Just, when I press the Esc key to exit the game the screen would turn black and it'd just freeze (I can still move my mouse cursor though...) and I'd have to reboot my PC!

To Ninja: Maybe you should install the PowerVR reference drivers (www.powervr.com) to get OpenGL running. I was having problems with OpenGL games/apps as well, before I installed the PowerVR reference drivers! So, I'd suggest you give it a try. ;)

Here are my system specs: (I know my CPU sucks... I'm gonna get a new one soon, when I get money.. heheh :p )

Pentium II 233 @ 291 Mhz
96 MB PC-100 RAM + 128 MB PC-133 RAM @ 100 Mhz
Hercules 3D Prophet 4500 w/ TV Out
Creative Labs SoundBlaster Live 1024

Oh, thanks! Alt+F4 works indeed... I thought I had tried it already, but oh well, it works now. :)

Thanks again!
