Hi Nike,

simplest way for running games like CS and/or JK2 with Voodoo2 cards is using MesaFX, beside FastVoodoo2 series.

You open this document - http://www.3dfxzone.it/dir/3dfx/mesafx/ - for getting more info about MesaFX setup and download.

Let'me know,

Bye bye,


Glide

have you tried some native Glide games?
maybe it's related to hardware but not software..

Ok, by your other words I can understand you are getting errors for bad software configuration.

So, remove ATI software with Catalyst Unistaller tool (it's is here: http://www.hwsetup.it/periferiche/schedevideo/ati/utilities.htm); then unistall FastVoodoo2 by Windows Control Panel and reboot pc.

At this time, install in this order:

1)DirectX 9c located here: http://www.hwsetup.it/software/directx.htm

2)Latest Catalyst located here: http://www.hwsetup.it/periferiche/schedevideo/ati/win2kxp.htm
Please make sure that you install before display driver then reboot and run Catalyst Control Panel setup, then again reboot.

3)FastVoodoo2 4.0 XP (read installing procedure in driver release notes).

Reboot and run your applications now.

Let us know,

Good luck

Bye bye
