RE: GraphicsModeControl.setPointSize with a DisplayImplJ3D underwin2k

Thanks --- I've got it resolved now.  It turns out using 2048x768 resolution 
[with jdk 1.4.1, j3d 1.3 (openGL), and my dual-monitor Radeon 7000 card) worked 
fine, whereas 2560x1024 didn't.  After rooting around on the web I came across 
this:
        http://www.ati.com/support/infobase/4030.html
which states there's a directX problem at higher resolutions than 2048x768 on 
win2k.  But 2560x1024 resolution can be made to work with java3d if under 
Display->Settings->Advanced->Troubleshooting you disable hardware acceleration 
for DirectDraw & Direct3D.

Many thanks,
Greg

With Java 1.3.1, Java 3D 1.3 and DirectX 8.1, LineWidth settings do
not work.

Don't know about this.  I do know there is a problem with
1.4.1 with the mobility Radeon on my thinkpad:

which is why I'm stuck at 1.3.1.  1.4.2 is supposed to fix the
problem.
