I wish I could help you with the black screen problem. Are you SURE the card is PCI? Otherwise you MAY have the same difficulty I had when I tried to upgrade to a GEForce card. It's possible your motherboard will just not accept it.I was running a P3, 700 mhz machine with at TNT2Ultra 32 mg card and attempted to upgrade four times to a GEForce card -- no go. They simply did NOT work!I finally changed MBs to one with AGP 2-4 support and the card worked fine. You may want to check your MB documentation (if you have it) and see how much AGP support you have. Just a thought.-Lindy :-wave

I copied the soundset out of another excellent Dauphin file in the Library here. Go to extended search and look for "up_air491.zip" (minus quotes). It's about 2.5 MB.Do these things in this order and you'll be a happy camper: COPY the files from the SOUND folder in the zipfile to the SOUND folder just off FS2002. Then rename dauphin_int.wav to he4.wav, and dauphin_c_x.wav to xhe4.wav. A lovely soundset that reminds me a LOT of Blue Thunder (dating myself, here) --BeachComer Stephen "Beach" Comer Real World Pile-it Commercial ASMEL, Instrument Airplane 4500 TT, 2500 BE20 & BE10 Serving Happy Landings Since 1973!
