Can I force my Voodoo2 graphic accelerator to display 2D?
I need that because of movies and such.

You can use Voodoomovie to play movies on the V2, get it here :

On Win2000/XP you could also try the Legendgrafx driver.
Just do a forum search here...

You can also use MPlayer for Win32 (MPF 0-19-0 recommended: http://mpf.dzm.hu/) put MesaGL in the same directory than mplayer.exe and in the command line or in the additional parameters of MPF put "-vm -screenw 640 -screenh 480 -bpp 16 -vo gl2" (or if you have two monitors use "-x 640 -y 480 -vo gl2" for have access to your desktop and see the video at the same time) if you have slow redendering additionally put "-vf scale=x/2:y/2,framestep=1 -sws 1" (where x, y are the width and height of the video) check the checkboxes Fullscreen, Doublebuffer and Direct rendering, uncheck Image post-processing and change MPlayer priority to high, the 3dfx logo creates a horrible delay with a cracking sound at startup so add a DWORD key "FX_GLIDE_NO_SPLASH=1" to your "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\3dfx Interactive\Voodoo2\Glide" to disable that splash screen you can also add it like a Environment variable with "SET FX_GLIDE_NO_SPLASH=1", tweak the options to your preferences and enjoy. ;-)
