Hi,

i am new to this board. My PC-configuration is as follows:

ASUS A7V133-C with AMD Athlon XP 1800+
1,5GB PC133 SDRAM
nVidia GeForce4 Ti 4200 + Diamond Monster 3D (Voodoo 1)
SoundBlaster

Now i want to play games like Resident Evil 1 and GTA 1 in 3dfx Mode. For this purpose I installed the Iceman driver. Ok, it worked. Buit now i can't play the games: GTA says missing dll and Resident Evil keeps screen black after showing 3dfx logo.

best regards

Yes, tried both in compatibility mode. I am now installing Windows 98SE for playing old games with 3Dfx support! :)

GTA1 (3Dfx version) is a Dos Game.
You need a glide(2x).ovl to run this game but the Iceman driver doesn't support it.
The best is to install the missing file in the Gta dos directory

I have now installed Win98SE and tried to start the game from DOS in 3dfx mode. The screen got errors and freezed. I tried both cards, but i don't think, they are damaged. It doesn't work with my GeForce4 Ti 4200 stacked. I think, i will sell the second card too. Impossible, to get it running with new hardware. An old PC would be needed.

Cheers!
