Alright, I have this obsession being a computer engineer: I HAVE to know how to program directly into the driver of any device I use. OR I'd even settle for a good open source driver for ATI cards that I can peruse and finger out what the procedure is to get to the video card without pissing off windows. Currently, I am doing some things in 3d, but I find learning the d3d API a bit boring...I want to get to the guts of my video card. I use a Radeon 9800 PRO AIW...I could've sworn omega drivers were open source but they don't seem to have the source code posted. Basically, anyone have a nifty little library that gives me some good linkage via c++ to plink with the card driver. I'll even settle for c, but this damn free MSVC compiler gets a little bitchy when I go to C. On a side note, anyone happen to have a good resource for instruction sets of these GPUs?
