Hi guys,
I'm trying to run EF 2000 v2.0 with my Diamon Monster 3D (Voodoo 1 board) and when I try to play a mission or a quick game it crashes and says at the prompt: grsstqueryhardware failed. Do I need to have some SST variables set first for the Voodoo 1 in order for it to be initialized and recognized by the game? I understand that this game doesn't use the glide2x.ovl driver. Thanks for the help.

Here is the machine I'm trying to run on:

Motherboard: DFI G4E620-B, Intel i845 chipset
CPU: Pentium 4 Northwood 3.06 Ghz
Ram: 2 Gb DDR333 ram (running at 266), Using Rloew's ram patch to support more than 512mb.
Primary: EVGA Nvidia 6800 Ultra
Secondary: Diamond Monster 3D, Voodoo 1, 4 Mb
Sound Card: Creative AWE64 Gold
Game Card: Thrustmaster ACM
Triple Boot: Windows 98 SE, Windows 95 OSR 2.5, DOS 7.1

Okay I figured this out. The 3DFX Voodoo 1 doesn't work properly on chipsets after 440 LX (or 440 BX). I tried it on an Intel i820 motherboard with a Pentium III 1 Ghz and it just doesn't get read correctly on the PCI bus. I put the Voodoo 1 in an Intel 440 LX board with a Pentium II 266 and the card works perfectly in EF 2000 v2.0. I believe there is an issue with PCI compliancy here. It appears that the Voodoo 1 does not work with the PCI 2.2 spec. The 440 LX board is the last you can use it reliably on, possibly 440 BX, but I have not tried that one.
