Hi,
Good news for the VOODOOMANIACS (like me), there are people saying that Google Earth doesn't work on Voodoo cards.
The first time that I installed G.E., it realy doesn't worked, but then, I choosed to ignore the error message and entered at the "Options" screen, and... Wooaallaa!
All you need to do is to change the engine from OpenGL to Direct3D, that's because WinXP don't recognize our voodoo cards, especially, their OpenGL compatibility, that's why I hate WinXP, (without saying that WinXP makes the voodoo's slower than a turtle), but anyway, Google earth is playable under Voodoo, but it's even better if u use Win2k, and maybe even better on Win98 (I never tryed to install G.E. on Win98, so pls, if someone already did, tell me!)
That's it!!

well,if you are running on the default xp driver,you cant expect opengl to work,the driver has only (very lame) d3d support.you should install the latest SFFT driver if you want a fully working driver..here:

Hum, and it's running "how" with the driver that you're using ?

I'm using the Amigamerlin 3.1 R11 driver,
And it runs smoothly, but, when you Zoom the earth to see the buildings, they all look white!
When I say that WinXP doesn't recognize our voodoo's, that´s because WinXP runs the voodoo cards with a lot of glitches and bugs, like this one that makes the G.E. buildings look white!
WinXP sucks!!

That doesnt work for me, if i zoom too much (like 200mts), textures start to mix one above the other, is there any fix for this? im using latest SFFT drivers but ive tried Amigamerlin too and is the same (V4 4500).
