im posting this all over the place for good measure.
when i first ran the homeworld 2 demo it worked. well, it worked as long as hyperspace and detail geometry were turned to their lowest settings - otherwise it would crash to the desktop. then, upon reverting to older graphic card drivers (i have a high end machine and wanted those hyperspace and detail geometry settings on high) i found the game ran fine but NONE OF THE SHIPS HAD POLYGONS. the ships were and are invisible, i can only see their running lights. i slapped myself repeatedly then reinstalled the latest drivers. still, no polygons.
im using a quadro fx 1000 (essentially a geforcefx)
anyone having similar problems?
