Re: Anyone out there use Discreet Spark for o2?

The path exists and the *.fs file exists, if I start it without the -v option it dies with a more severe VOLUMEMGT error. Spark took a detour from earlier versions of effect and they really limited it on the o2. Ah yes, it's effect I have. Before you wipe, how about posting you init.cfg and see if ...

Re: Anyone out there use Discreet Spark for o2?

Hi gijoe77 I do have an o2 running something discreet licenced with an AV2 card and it works fine. I don't though think it's SPARK and of course it's not available for me to boot up currently (my parents loft). I think it's running FLINT??? Does sw_config work fine for you? I recently had an issue i...

Re: Tezro stuck on Gfx Cfg Err

Are you able to swap out the Graphics Card? They won't boot without a card in or a faulty card.

Re: Backburner rendering farm.

I read that, you're right they don't mention Flame or Smoke, so on another PC I have installed 3DS / Backburner and its registered that fine. What's not happening though, is any sign of either Flame machines registering with the manager and I am pretty sure they showed up in the server console befor...

Not even sure there is a version of Wire+Tap for Sun, unless you run LINUX of some kind on the SUN?

Re: Tezro Quad R16K 700MHz, 7GB , V12, DM-3, Gigabit ethernet, USB Card, 2x Dual 4 Gigabit Fibre-channel, Dual Serial Ca

For future planning, I intend setting this system up as a full Flame system once I'm finished with the upgrade. Just one question: Making use of the process needed to get around the need of having a Discrete Stone disk array in the setup, would it be at all possible to make use of my SUN V880z to f...

Plasmon Rewritable Magneto-Optical Disk thingy

I have two devices that read and write to these disks. I put one in the loft (the newer one) since I couldn't find a cable, and then found a cable.. PAH.. So I have the older one attached and the Octane shows it in hinv as a removable media unit. Removable media Manager from within IRIX doesn't show...

Backburner rendering farm.

Happy Easter folks. I'd like to talk about a render farm and all the required components. So I have two windows servers running Backburner (Service, Monitor & Server). Both of these register to the same server and they appear fine in the monitor on what I shall call the 'master' I have two flame...

I'm thinking stick a raspberry pie on the back and use some random MT command so far using PHP (which I know nothing about at all).

Re: [WTB UK]: Octane Dual 300+, 2GB, 15K Disk

See my post above and do a forum search, don't think you'll get a V6/V8 to do 1600x1200 @ 60hz due to pixel clock bug. You'll need to go to v10/v12 or run Mgras with texture ram if you want texturing. I'm in the kitchen cooking so could be wrong, others can verify:) Ah righto, I got confused by the...
