This isn't really just for the Geforce2 card, but it's an example of what the Eclipse team has accomplished for people running on lower-end machines that couldn't get Eclipse running. The Eclipse team successfully got Eclipse to run on a Geforce2. The official article is found hereOffsite Link (with screenshots) . The official forum thread is found hereOffsite Link. In fact, more recently, a new "hotfix" that was released that allows almost all DirectX 6 cards to run Eclipse.

This is the snippet taken from the official articleOffsite Link.

We've been talking about fixing Eclipse to run a wider range of video cards. Right now we have a buld that is running on lower end systems. The results have been promising, but not with out some technical glitches.

The images from this page were all taken on a Geforce 2 Card. In the image above you can see the symbol that is on the standind stones bleeding into the model. This is one example of art assets breaking when forced in to a DX7 mode. The good news is that we know how to fix them. The bad news it's just going to take some time to do so.
