i think that NeverWinter Nights doesn't work with a V3

about GLQuake, why don't you use a miniGL, like the 1.49 ?

hum, about your cpu : what is the temperature ?

Hi morthek, welcome.

1)Do you have installed Amigamerlin driver as suggested in readme file?

So for driver setup you must:

- Run regedit and find

- Delete "3dfxvs" folder

- Reboot

- Execute "Driver setup.exe" then restart

- Execute "isetup.exe" to install complete the tools then restart

2) Check cpu fan integrity and verify that cables and devices do not keep air from spreading

3) With Quake2/3 based games i suggest to use WickedGL libraries which have good performance in XP (read here

- Nightbrd:

Bye bye

about NWN :
- you must disable the "enable hardware mouse" in the nwn.ini ; chang it from 1 to 0 or the cursor will not work
- seems easier with Win98SE or Win2k, XP really i don't know but i'm afraid that is really difficult
- with a V3, you can perhaps use low settings in the game ; with the desktop put it in 800*600 and 16 bits
