Whenever I try to start Star Wars Rogue Squadron, I get the error message, "Could Not Initialize Hal". I am using the Alpha SFFT drivers with a Voodoo 4500 PCI on XP SP2. Older machine of Pentium 951 with 354 RAM. Same message when I chose Voodoo Glide or D3D on video setup. Is there a way to fix this or other driver to reccomend. THANKS

USe Amigamerlin 3.1 R11 and then the game should work, and what you also can do is run the game on Win98 compabaility mode, this should make it run better on any NTFS OS which XP is as well.

THANKS! Got it to work. What in your opinion is the best way to run 3dfx games in XP? Is it hit or miss? I mean I'd love to have the 3dfx logo appear before a game starts. This is only a secondary machine I want to dedicate to 3dfx and Voodoo but hate running 98 or ME. I wish there was some tutorial out there considering I got 3 3dfx cards lying around and 2 old computers (Banshee PCI, Voodoo 3 AGP, Voodoo 4500 PCI & a 500 mhz Compaq, 1 gig Gateway). Any help would be appreciated.

I'd say XP is fine, unless you absolutely must have a game that only works in 98..could always dual boot them.

For the 3dfx splash screen try V. Control: http://www.3dfxzone.it/koolsmoky/vctrl.html
See "disable 3dfx splash screen option".

I am unable to run this game at any higher resolution than 480x640. Anything higher crashes to desktop or restarts machine (odd!). Using compatability mode slows down the menus to a crawl. I'm using the 3dfx reference 1.04 win2000 drivers but replaced glide 2 & 3 with the ones fron the latest SFFT release. All games work great except for this resolution problem?
