Comanche, MotoGP, OpenGL32.dll voodoo3 installprobs
Posted 04 October 2002 - 03:16 PM
i´m using win2k sp2 and amigamerlin 2.5 correct installation.
i got a voodoo3 3000 and my prob is since months, that in few games like comanche, motogp, ballerburg (dont know the english titel) i get nasty textures - in ballerburg there are NO textures. just grey and white. motogp has some textures, but nothing, that look "normal" - just few colors. comanche has less textures, or no water.
i tryed to install a newer opengl32.dll while installing the driver - copying the newer dll into the systemdirectory. but after a reboot, thers only the newer glide and the old opengl from mickysoft
i searched about many forums, tryed few tricks, but it just worked fine for once! after a reinstall i had the same probs.......
i tryed the good old win98se - there where no probs, but i prefere for working win2k!
do you have any ideas?

People need to realize... 3DFX IS OUT OF BUSINESS AND GAMES WILL NOT WORK WITH THEIR CARDS ANYMORE! Get a new card man!

Some things to remember about the Voodoo cards:
1. There was NEVER, even when they were in business, a full Opengl32 ICD for 3DFX cards. It never worked and never will. The closest you can come to it is use WickedGL or find a miniGL for the particular game you're using... but in the end, any games that require full OpenGL support will never, ever work on your card.
2. 3DFX Is out of business and the people who were still developing for these cards are finally letting go. They have been for some time.
3. Get a new card. If you're an Nvidia hater, go with ATI... but if you're a gamer and you expect to play new games, you will not... I repeat... NOT get them to work on your Voodoo3.
I have two Voodoo3's in my spare parts collection now. I was in the same boat as you, and I gave up. You just have to let go, man. This is the computing world - it's a racket and it always will be.

but i didnt want to start a flame here... i had some troubles with my first card, a viper330 and it punished me...
than i got the v3 and tuned it with a 1000mhz c-athlon for having 3 years full of fun with every game! today im mostly playing tactical ops and unrealtournament (2003 works too )
but such nice one like aquanox or bf1942 cant run on a v3
so there must be a upgrade...
if there would just be the probs with c4 and motogp, i would reanimate my win98se partition theres no probelm with comanche4 - so flame on about the fucking gl-support, its a question of software :x
thx for helping

But you're robbing yourself of an excellent experience by staying on that V3... glad to see you're moving on
