- Added the Matrox Marvel G200 to the Which Windows 95 Driver ? table.

Saturday, 28th November 1998
- Added the new Matrox Unified BIOS, version 3.45.003. The cards with new BIOS from 3.44 to 3.45 are: G100s (AGP), G200s (PCI and AGP), G200 FP PCI and the G100 and G200s with TV Out.

- Replaced the beta drivers for the Matrox G200 with the Beta 2 version. These supercede the previous 4.50 drivers, and have been released to address problems with Half-Life. Matrox recommend against using these drivers on socket 7-based systems, although posts on the newsgroups suggest otherwise. As always with beta software, use at your own risk and be sure you can go back to the previous release.
- Updated the Creative Labs page to include the Sound Blaster Live! Driver Update Revision 3.
- Added the MotorHead 2.1 patch. This adds SGL support to the game, so you can get all the effects running on a PowerVR-based graphics adapter.
Tuesday, 24th November 1998
- Added the new beta drivers for the Matrox G200 - version 4.50.006. These should only be used on G200-series cards, at your own risk.

- Updated the Unreal benchmarks for the G200 and the m3D to show the effect of adding VertexLighting True on the m3D - many thanks to John Snider for that one. Kicks the average frame rate on the PowerVR up by about 35% in 800x600 ! I've also updated the Unreal Setup page to show the new settings.
