Half-Life 2, the latest Sierra Entertainment masterpeace, runs fine on 3dfx Voodoo5 cards with Amigamerlin 3.1 R1 driver kit. Omega_supreme sent Amigamerlin some game pictures. Just one - frame real resolution is 1920x1200 - follows:

So it was an opengl renderer but Valve would have removed it "to do MS a favor".

Try running Set3tile.exe and then rebooting if it still runs it might go a bit faster, if it stops working run set4tile.exe and reboot again it should be back to being ok. Lower resolutions will probably also be faster.

Ok thanks for the help!! So HL2 doesnt support MesaFX.
Does anyone have any suggestions on how to tweak HL2.
Here are my specs.
AMD Athlon 1.4 Mhz

..yes,but "not fantastic" graphics is usually better than "none at all"

many games have an unsupported opengl renderer
Indeed but sometimes this renderer is not "fantastic".

..many games have an unsupported opengl renderer that can be activated by ini editing or console commands,but I dont think this is the case.it looks like the source engine doesnt have an ogl renderer,I have asked if CS Source has something like that on the official forum,the reply was no,and it has started a nice flamewar

if HL2 uses OpenGL, maybe V2 can run it (just like Doom3)

Well, HL2 runs under Dx and can't run unluckily with MesaFx since this game doesn't support OpenGl (unluckily again).

I see from the screenshot you got the 3dfx Voodoo5 card working on HL2, using Amigamerlin 3.1 R1 driver kit. Did you use the MesaFX patch, if so can you tell me how to install it? If you didnt can you help me anyway!

HL2 uses its own dx6 path

It runs at Dx Level 9/8/7/6?
coz differnt Dx Level will make the on-screen detail different
