Hey, this game doesnt even run on a Geforce4 card.
No chance ever to get it to run on a V5, so dont even think about a V3...

Ack @ Rolo. That won't ever work ... and if it would look more crappy than Half-Life classic, I think ... Did you see the pics with the inofficial "patch" for GeForce4 cards? It lacks of many effects and the textures are nearly one-color surfaces ...

Radeon 8500 or GeForceFX 5200 ... but I doubt the FX can make it playable ... X-D

It can run on my Radeon 8500, but not on a GeForce 4 Ti4600? I can't believe it! :D 8500 rocks! :D

Yes, like Geforce 3, the 4 series just faster, not better. Like 9700, 9800, X800. :D

Well, a little bit. GF4 has PS1.3, GF3 only 1.1.

Actually GeForce 3 support PS1.3, but optimizations fot this shaders was wroten only for GeForce 4. After all GF3 and GF4 is brothers in technology specs (by the way GeForce 3 support AA4xS to).

Still Radeon 8500 have low perfomance, and not so playable after all.

I think B2 can be launched on Voodoo 5, but it will be looks terrible. Like Halo on Voodoo 2 SLI.

If it will be GeForce FX 5900 maybe/... maybe.

no.battlefield2 reqires pixel shaders 1.4.finito.
and halo doesnt run on v2 SLI,it only runs on v4/5,and it doesnt look that terrible.there are problems with certain surfaces (like water),but most of the game looks fine..

Halo runs both - on Voodoo 2 SLI and on Voodoo 5. On Voodoo 2 it looks terrible but work. Now I must remember where I see those screens...

Anyway, I think its possible to lauch B2 on Voodoo 5. But image as I said will be terrible.
