Try the alternative OpenGL ICD from Koolsmokey,
get it here : http://www.3dfxzone.it/koolsmoky/oglicd.html
That helped me alot.

or, if that doesnt work, rename the 3dfxogl.dll file from GlideXP (http://www.users.on.net/triforce/glidexp/) to opengl32.dll and place it in your Jedi Academy.exe directory

Hi, what about Windows 98? Can I use the GlideXP driver?
 

qrazi

erm, probably.... and as long as you place the opengl32.dll in the local game directory, it wont affect the driver install in anyway....

I think so... I did not check the official website..

The way to get Jedi Academy working, is to get the opengl render as Rolo01 said, then copy the file (opengl32.dll) into the 'Gamedata' directory.  E.g.  My dir lookes like this c:\Demos\Jedi_Academy\Gamedata\ , otherwise if you put it elsewhere, the game will not use this render.  
Try it out, this is how I got it working on my system...looks quite nice :)
