My system has a new Voodoo3 with the latest drivers and version of DirectX. I'm using the Direct3D version of Java3D. When I run a Java3D application I get an error at the prompt saying that I should set my monitor at 16-bit color (it already is). Then then gui of the application appears. I get an error in a popup window saying something like:
No compatable device found for rendering. Turn on reference rasterizer enumeration.
And then the program runs! Is this a bug, or is it just using software rendering to run the program? My CPU is fast enough so that software rendering is smooth, and I can't tell the difference between the two when the graphis being rendered are small (as is the case). How do I know my 3D hardware is being used?
There's nothing more dangerous than a resourceful idiot. ---Dilbert
