Lindbergh Red 7800 Support?

Post by Mooliecool » February 27th, 2015, 10:25 am

Can the Red Lindbergh use a 7800/7800GS? I haven't found anything about it so far.
My Red Lindbergh has a 6800 video card and I'm wondering if it supports it.

As far as I am aware only Yellow/Silver/Blue can use the 7800, but your best bet is to ask Andy Geezer at AGS as he'll know the answer off the top of his head.

Yes and no.

Yes 7800gs will work fine on red.

But most official red software will give error 07 on the lindbergh boot loader. Down to a simple bitmask flag in the btid.

Red/yellow/blue all share same mainboard, only gfx card, cpu, sound card and jvs baseboard (redex) change.

Yes if you upgrade the cpu to a p4 3ghz add an extra 512mb and the pci sound card.
