First of all, can I assume you have 3 different machines, each using one of the video cards above? Or are they all on the same machine? In this case, may I know which card is being used to run Houdini?
Secondly, the Diamond Stealth card is not certified to run Houdini though you can Houdini in software OpenGL mode with it. If you really want to try it out, please go to the link below.
Next, the GeForce2 & GeForce4 cards should be able to run Houdini which brings me to my next question. May I know which version of the Nvidia Detonator are you using?
The problem you're facing sounds like a driver issue with the GeForce2 card which has been fixed by Nvidia. I would recommend downloading the latest drivers from Nvidia
] & try that out.
If the latest Detonator drivers still fails, you can try setting the following environment variable & see if it helps you:
Some graphics boards (notably quadro and gforce) boards have
problems writing simultaneously to the front and back buffers. By
setting this variable to 1, Houdini will only write to one buffer
at a time.
Please go to this link
] for an example on how to set environment variables in Windows and replace “HOUDINI_OGL_SOFTWARE” with “HOUDINI_OGL_DBL_BUFFER_FIX”.
I hope the above helps!
