    I remember trying TruQuake2 on my 9800SE (looked fugly, to be honest)... I guess that must have been done in software then.

    ive used truform on my 9800pro in unrealtournament
    the problem is it was applied to all models so you'd get ammo boxes that looked like they'd been inflated

    From what I recall of my 9600Pro/XT days, there was a checkbox for TruForm in the control panel, but it was disabled by default.
    It allowed me to run the Dolphin demo at least, but it was probably in software. Still, performance was good enough, probably would be okay for games.

    I know that the R300 and later ATI cards allowed Truform, but it was indeed all performed in software by the driver. I still miss my old volt-modded, pipe-modded, cooling-modded 9500np :(
