However, for the past few years, we have been stuck using MS Links 2001. Although we have Links 2003, it won't work with our set-up. Here is the main problem. The optional settings for Links 2001 allow you to disable 3D graphics acceleration. If we run it on the computer, the 3D acceleration is not an issue and we can leave it on. But we have to turn it off if we use the TV (which is the only way we play). Again, this is no problem for links 2001. It works fine on the TV.
Our Links 2003 plays fine on the computer, but we can not play it at all on the TV via the s-video out from the computer graphics card. Links 2003 requires 3D graphics acceleration all the time (no option). Although our graphics card has 3D acceleration internal to the computer, it does not "output" it thru the s-video cable.
I see a lot of graphics cards that advertise 3D acceleration, and S-video out jacks, but in reality, I do not belive that there is a graphics card that actually outputs 3D acceleration via the jacks. (S-video or other jacks)
Does anyone have any ideas? maybe we could use some cabling other than S-video if we found a new graphics card and we used a different input on the back of the TV?
