I got the XIII demo working (just) on win98se using 3d analyze, but there were *ALOT* of corrupt graphics and the likes.
Basically unplayable....

Doesn't 8.1 support sort of imply HW TnL?

OpenGL support does not seem likely. I always wonder about the "best" OS for voodoo cards, it seems like 98se would be (what I use) because that was the OS that the V4/5 would be aimed at, but all major driver updates (like AmigaMerlin 3.0 XP's recompiled DirectX core) are aimed at XP (and 2k) users.

I need to play the full demo in order to "see" and try also an other driver.
The driver which i'm using is not easy so i have visual glitches.

ps : what are exactly your "corrupt graphics and the likes" ?

Hey Nightbird,
The corrupt graphics are missing walls, textures blending in with others abnormaly, screen 'scratching' and lines going through the screen usually in the top left hand corner.
