    Yes you've guessed it. Us ATI people are now able to run the NVidia Dawn demo on our Radeons!

    An OpenGL wrapper has been released that allows any ATI DX9 card to run the demo!

    Now onto the links:

    Get the Dawn demo here : Click Here

    Get the OpenGL wrapper here :Click Here

    Installation Instructions

    Unzip and place opengl32.dll into the bin directory of the installed demo.

    Default example would be c:\program files\nvidia corporation\nvidia demos\dawn\bin\

    Oh and you need at least 512mb of ram

    Please Note the following

    - Selecting Wireframe mode or Point mode under Drawstyle results in the demo crashing

    - The dll does not work with other GeForce FX demos
    because im on dial-up! But download is imminent!

    looks slightly better on FX cards.

    try going into the bin directory and rename:

    fairy.exe > 3dMark03.exe

    see what happens :naughty:

    I think if you look closely enough, it's not quite a leaf so much as a leaf coloured merkin..
