View Full Version : Retina Z2 drivers
25 September 2006, 07:38
Anybody have drivers for the Retina Zorro 2 video cards after version 2.3? I hear they went up to 4.x (beta atleast) and I would like to try some if they exist.

Bumping because apparently there were beta CyberGraphX drivers for this thing. Did they ever turn up?

Have yet to find any.

That's too bad because the drivers for this thing SUCK. I suppose it's a miracle that it works at all under OS 3.9. Would I get better results if I tried the EGS drivers? How would I get EGS going?

I use the card in my A3000 under OS 2.0x and its a pain to setup. How well does it work in 3.x (considering upgrading my ROMs to try 3.5)?

I just did a plain install. It sort of works; I can't change the resolution, but I can get higher color depths. It's slow as all hell.
The driver doesn't use the custom Prefs-selectable screenmodes that the other RTG systems do. Instead it "emulates" a Workbench screen, kludging any ordinary ECS/OCS/AGA mode to work at a higher depth. This means you're in trouble the second anything wants to switch back to the built-in video (because it can't).

Most other RTG cards have passthrough because they can't do internal video modes either. Currently I have 2 monitor one for built in video and one for the Retina.

The manual mentions that an optional passthrough-type switcher accessory was available for the card at some point, but nobody's ever even seen one.

Also, is CybergraphX even still being developed? It looks like the author(s) have quit or vanished off the face of the earth or both. It's still being sold, but that's probably only because retailers still have stock.
It seems that the Retina drivers would have shipped out with version 4.3 final.
