I put together a package of the latest ATI extensions modified to get 2D and 3D acceleration in Mac OS 9.2.2 when using a flashed Radeon 9250.

This package will only work with cards with device ID 5960. So you will have to do the resistor mod prior to flashing the card as described here:

There is supposed to be a modified driver for the 9250 flying around somewhere already but I was not able to get hold of that one so I took a dive into the driver myself and came up with this small fix.
My device ID was already present in most of the driver extension but not in the "ATI Resource Manager".

The 9600 is not going to work. The 9250 only works because it is using a R2x0 GPU and those chips are supported by the OS 9 drivers ATI made. The 9600 is using R3x0 - like the 9800 - and those are simply not supported by the drivers. Forcing the drivers to load won´t get you anywhere.

My device ID was already present in most of the driver extension but not in the ATI Resource Manager.

How was this ID editing made? I have an Apple (not flashed) ATI Radeon 9000 which works in OS9 but also an Apple ATI Radeon 9600 which isn't recognized by any OS9 drivers. The 9600 card is twice as fast as the 9000, the 9600 card ID says "0x4150" and I want to force OS9 to recognize it, how?
