       "Supported Resolutions" section of this document for a list
       of driver supported modes.


    * NOTE * BE SURE TO TEST THE SELECTED MODE BEFORE RESTARTING
             WINDOWS NT.  IF YOUR MONITOR DOES NOT SUPPORT YOUR
             CURRENT SELECTION, THE SYSTEM WILL RETURN WITH A
             BLANK SCREEN AND MONITOR DAMAGE MAY RESULT.  THE TEST
             WILL ONLY SET THE MODE FOR 5 SECONDS AND RETURN TO
             ALLOW YOU TO SELECT ANOTHER IF THE FIRST IS NOT
             SUPPORTED.  IF THE TEST BITMAP DISPLAYS PROPERLY, THE
             MONITOR IS CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING THE SELECTED
             RESOLUTION AND VERTICAL REFRESH RATE.

    * NOTE * If the system fails to restart or is unable to locate
             the file N9I3D.SYS, try changing the PCI interrupt
             setting in the system CMOS BIOS.  An IRQ setting will
             be assigned to the PCI slot that the Revolution(TM)3D
             card is in.  In some cases, the interrupt assigned to
             the PCI slot may cause the driver to fail when
             loading.  Each computer has a different CMOS setup
             and you will need to check the owner's manual for
             your system motherboard.

The Revolution 3D display driver for Windows NT 4.0 also installs
the Number Nine Control Center set of Display Utilities.  The Number 
Nine Control Center is accessed from an icon in the Start Menu -> 
Settings -> Control Panel group.

The Number Nine Info page contains Number Nine contact information
and version information about your Revolution 3D configuration.
The information page reports the BIOS data, board name,
display driver version, and amount of memory installed on your
Revolution 3D.

The Virtual Control page gives you the option to enable or disable
Number Nine's Double Wide(TM) or Two Tall(TM) display modes.
Virtual resolutions provide an extended desktop width or height.
Once virtual resolutions are enabled, all of the resolutions
available from display settings will be virtuals until they are
manually disabled on the Virtual Control page.

NOTE: Virtual modes are not available at all display resolutions.

The virtual display will automatically scroll when the cursor is
dragged towards the off-screen area of the extended desktop.  The
display area can also be changed with a Quick Jump by moving the
cursor to the upper left or lower right corner of the screen.

* NOTE * The 85hz Refresh Rate may exhibit problems on certain
         monitors due to bandwidth limitations at resolutions
         above 800 x 600.  Monitor cabling and positioning, in
         relation to other devices, can impact performance.
         Please consult your monitor manual for information on
         maximum supported resolutions and refresh rates.


------------------------------------------------------------------                                                               
 5. CHANGING THE VERTICAL REFRESH RATE
------------------------------------------------------------------                                                               

 5.1. Open the "Start" Menu by using the task bar.

 5.2. Highlight "Settings" and open the "Control Panel" folder.

 5.3. Double click or select the Display Icon.  Click on the
     Settings tab.

 5.4. Click on or select the Refresh Frequency pull down box and
     select the refresh rate you desire.

 5.5. *IMPORTANT* Click the Test button and click OK to test the
     display.
     
     * NOTE * BE SURE TO TEST THE SELECTED MODE BEFORE RESTARTING
              WINDOWS NT.  IF YOUR MONITOR DOES NOT SUPPORT YOUR
              CURRENT SELECTION, THE SYSTEM WILL RETURN WITH A
              BLANK SCREEN AND MONITOR DAMAGE MAY RESULT. THE TEST
              WILL ONLY SET THE MODE FOR 5 SECONDS AND RETURN TO
              ALLOW YOU TO SELECT ANOTHER IF THE FIRST IS NOT
              SUPPORTED.  IF THE TEST BITMAP DISPLAYS PROPERLY,
              THE MONITOR IS CAPABLE OF SUPPORTING THE SELECTED
              RESOLUTION AND VERTICAL REFRESH RATE.

 5.6. If the TEST COLOR BITMAP design displayed properly, click or
     select YES.

 5.7. In Display Properties, click or select APPLY to have the new
     rate take effect.

------------------------------------------------------------------                                                               
 6. HARDWARE ACCELERATION FOR 3D
------------------------------------------------------------------                                                               

The Revolution(TM)3D supports hardware accelerated 3D, with both
16-bit and 32-bit Z-Buffering, and Double Buffering for smooth
redraws of 3D objects.  Like all true 3D accelerator cards, this
requires large amounts of on-board memory.

On a 4MB version of the Revolution(TM)3D, OpenGL 3D acceleration
is only supported at resolutions up to 800x600 @ 65k colors, or
640x480 @ 16.7M colors.
On an 8MB version of the Revolution(TM)3D, OpenGL 3D acceleration
is supported at resolutions up to 1152x864 @ 65k colors, and up to
800x600 @ 16.7M colors.
On a 12MB version of the Revolution(TM)3D, OpenGL 3D acceleration
is supported at resolutions up to 1600x1200 @ 65k colors and up to
1024x768 @ 16.7M colors.
On a 16MB version of the Revolution(TM)3D, OpenGL 3D acceleration
is supported at resolutions up to 1920x1200 @ 65k colors and up to
1152x864 @ 16.7M colors.

At higher resolutions, 3D operations are performed in software,
making them much slower.

NOTE: Resolution limits are for non-virtual display resolutions.
Enabling virtual resolutions greatly reduces the supported modes
for 3D hardware acceleration.

NOTE: The above-listed 12MB and 16MB Revolution 3D configurations
      are achieved by adding an 4MB or 8MB memory upgrade daughter
      card to a Revolution(TM)3D WRAM.  SGRAM boards do not
      support daughter cards, and are limited to the 4MB or 8MB
      memory configuration as purchased.

The BBS has a separate file area for each Number Nine product.  
The latest driver updates can be found in each product's file 
area, and files of general interest (shareware, etc.) can be 
found in the General library.  An E-mail system is available 
for technical questions about Number Nine products or about 
the BBS in general.  A complete listing of available files can

Many files are self-extracting, but some files will require the 
latest version of PKUNZIP to decompress.  PKUNZIP is available 
in the General library (filename PKZ204G.EXE), and can also be 
found on most on-line services such as CompuServe and America 
On-line.
