  on adjusting the monitors' display in the context sensitive online help.

  A. Monitor Tuning

     With the buttons in the 'Move' and 'Size' sections you can tune the
     position and size of the monitor's display for the indicated resolution
     and refresh rate.
     NOTE: Use the hardware setting controls on your monitor, if available,
     to adjust your display size or position - instead of the software
     controls in 'Adjustment - Monitor Tuning.'  Check the documentation of
     your monitor for information on your monitor's hardware controls.
     NOTE: Resizing the display slightly changes the actual refresh rate.
     If you operate a fixed-frequency monitor check the documentation of your
     monitor for information on refresh rate tolerances. 
     
     Sync Polarity: If you do not get a satisfactory display with the default
     sync polarity setting for the current resolution, you may try and change
     the settings.

     Undo: Click this button to undo the last change you made (i.e. when you
     clicked 'Apply').
     
     Default: Click this button to set the 'Monitor Tuning' to the
     manufacturer's default settings.  
     
    
     NOTES:

     Press the ESC key on your keyboard to undo the changes if your monitor
     has lost synchronization.
     
     If you change the resolution (in 'Settings') and/or the refresh
     rate (in 'Monitor'), you may need to re-adjust the monitor's display.
     
       
       
  B. 'Gamma Correction': Adjust the montior's gamma correction for optimal
     brightness with the red, green and blue slider bars.
    
     When these sliders are changed the gamma correction table modifies each
     pixel's color value. The brightness produced at the face of the display
     is proportional to the input voltage raised to the power gamma. This
     nonlinearity must be compensated to achieve correct reproduction of the
     image's brightness. The effect of display gamma is to darken the 
     midtones relative to the dark and light regions. The gamma correction
     adjustment affects the entire screen display. The possible setting
     range is 0.3 - 4.0. The default setting is 1.0.

     With 'Link sliders' selected, the three sliders move together as
     you drag any individual slider. With the check box unchecked, you can 
     adjust colors individually by dragging the applicable slider.
     Click the '>1<' button - for each color - to set the gamma correction
     to the default value of 1.0.
      
 
 
  C. Click the 'Apply' or 'OK' button to enable your adjustment settings.




3.5 Using Advanced Settings
---------------------------
  
  Select the 'ATI  Advanced Settings' dialog in the 'Display Properties' 
  window. (Windows 2000: via Display Properties > Settings > Advanced >

  You can find more information on using the 'ATI Advanced Settings' in the
  context sensitive online help.

  
  Enable Offscreen Rendering (PBuffer)
  ------------------------------------
  Check this option to use rendering into off-screen pbuffer instead of 
  on-screen rendering.


  Enable Quad Buffer Stereo
  -------------------------
  Check this option to operate stereo glasses. 
  NOTES: Using this option requires stereo shutter glasses connected to the 
         stereo connector of your card.
         You cannot use this option together with "Fullscene Antialiasing" 
         or "D4D".
         Set the screen refresh rate to 120 Hz via the 'Settings' dialog.


  Enable Sync Control Extension
  -----------------------------
  Check this option for precise synchronization control of graphics and
  streaming video or audio. Applications with real-time rendering requirements
  need synchronization of events on the graphics card (such as vertical 
  retrace) and other parts of the system. 



  Enable Fullscene Antialiasing (Fire GL3, Fire GL4, Fire GL4s)
  -------------------------------------------------------------
  Check this option for improved image quality if your application supports
  this feature.
  - Oversampling Quality: Move the slider to optimize the oversampling
    quality.
    NOTE: Increasing the oversampling quality may reduce the performance
  - Force Fullscene Antialiasing: Check this option to use 
    'Fullscene Antialiasing' also for OGL applications that do not support
    this feature'   
    NOTES: Forcing Fullscene Antialiasing may reduce the performance.
           You cannot use this option together with "Quad Buffer Stereo".

  
  Enable D4D (Fire GL3, Fire GL4, Fire GL4s)
  ------------------------------------------
  Check this option if you operate a flat autostereoscopic 3D display. 
  NOTES: You need a "Dresden 3D Display" monitor to use this option.
         You cannot use this option together with "Quad Buffer Stereo."

------------------------------------------

  Technical support for the installation and configuration of 
  ATI FIre GL Professional Graphics Accelerators, as well as 
  software updates or optional software packages, are available
  in the Internet at http://www.ati.com/support 



7.  SUPPORTED RESOLUTIONS, COLOR DEPTHS, AND REFRESH RATES
----------------------------------------------------------

  The resolutions and refresh rates supported by the Fire GL
  are dependent on the monitor that is selected. 
  Windows NT 4.0 only: To display the resolutions that are supported
  and the maximum vertical refresh rate for each of your
  monitors, refer to the 'ATI  Monitor' dialog in the 'Display Properties' 
  window. You can display the 'ATI  Monitor' dialog by right-clicking 
  the Windows desktop and selecting 'Properties' and then
  selecting the 'ATI  Monitor' tab.

  The Fire GL accelerators support only TrueColor, 32-bit 
  (24 color, 8 alpha) modes. 
  There is no support for 8-bit or 16-bit modes.

  The table below is showing screen resolution, pixel size, horizontal
  line rate and refresh rate for all modes supported under the MS 
  Windows NT4.0 / Windows 2000 operating system, all modes are providing
  full screen double buffering using the OpenGL API.
