Dear all,

I use a good old Voodoo2 card to play Red Baron 3D. I recently had to do a fresh install of Windows XP, and then re-installed RB3D and the Fastvoodoo2 4.0 XP Gold Edition driver as usual. However, i now have a small glitch in RB3D: while flying, every 1,5 seconds the game freezes for a millisecond. I thought this might be an issue within the game, but then i noticed that i can`t play the Fastvoodoo driver demos: i get a message "error in demo6030.exe" (same with the donut demo).

I initially got the same message when starting RB3D ("error in Red Baron 3D"), until i downloaded the glide3x.dll from this forum. I did not have to do this the last time i last installed the game.

All this is probably connected somehow, but i can`t quite put my finger on it! Any clues?!
Cheers,

Jasper.

Thanks for the quick reply. I installed Koolsmoky`s driver, but it makes no difference: i still get the same slightly bumpy ride. Playing with refresh rate/resolution didn`t help either.

Note that i have the same problem with a version of RB3D that was already installed on a second hard disk in the same computer.

Any other suggestions??

Do you get this issue with other games too? Can you change the PCI slot where Voodoo2 card is installed?

Let us know,

Thank you,

Bye bye

try limiting the memory with the V2 tweaker (its in the link I have provided),I think redbaron3d doesnt like when it has too much framebuffer memory available..

The problem is over! But the way it happened puzzles me. All i did was remove an old Creative sound card which i did not use. (I wanted to connect a Sidewinder joystick to it`s gameport, but XP refused the driver). Then i decided to check if this perhaps made any difference and voila - glitch-free flying. I never touched the Voodoo card! Does this make any sense???

BTW I did not have the glitch in Urban Assault. And reducing memory with the tweaker did not help.

I decided to switch back tot the 3dfx driver. Koolsmoky`s made the graphics look a little dark. And now i can also see the driver demo!
Anyway, hope this will help somebody else sometime...
