My IIci has a Radius DirectColorGX. The internal video does not work with my VGA monitor and adaptor. But I plugged in my VGA-Mac Adaptor to the Radius Card, and voila it worked.
The only thing it displays is a gray screen that says "Radius" on the bottom left.
That's the DirectColorGX throwing up a "splash screen/whatever"
onto the monitor while the IIci loads its OS & then loads the extensions. I'm guessing you don't see a little Radius Monitor icon
along with the rest of the extension icons
that march across the bottom of the main screen on startup? If so, then you don't have the RadiusWare extension/control panel installed to enable the IIci to make use of the DirectColorGX.
RadiusWare is a catchall term Radius' used for its drivers for everything from VidCards to Accelerators.
Have you tried all the usual sources
for driver downloads?
If not, check the "Peripherals Links Project"
for some ideas as to where to start looking. Since you own the card, you have a right to use the drivers, so there's no intellectual property nonsense
to worry about.
