Oops! Misunderstood: so this is DirectX, not Glide.

Ah, and pod is Windows based, so we wouldn't be needing Glidos anyway.

You're right, this should be in the OpenGlide forum. Of course, when I posted the original message, I can't remember it existing. 😉

Moving now.

Yay for old topics!

I was just wondering if someone could perchance post a sample of the [pod2_0] section of the ubi.ini file created in %windir%\ubisoft when installing Pod, and also details of any registry entries made. I'm trying to get it to install but not having any luck; it's complaining I don't have enough space (2GB, aight), or (more common error, and fixable) a 3dfx card, so I'm doing it by copying the relevant files over instead.

WOW! Dege has a patch that gets POD running on a Pentium4 (well some versions, I got the MMX version running but the Direct3D version caused an error and my Pod Gold 3Dfx version isn't detected, but it's a great starting position, especially as his 3Dfx wrapper also now supports POD!):

I've had POD for a while, but never installed it. I just tried using the stock install and the game wouldn't start at all. It just complained that it couldn't set the display mode. I then followed the instructions on this page;

http://home.arcor.de/hbredel/POD/POD-English/ … od-english.html

I selected MMX with 3DFX large installation, skipped the DirectX and Indeo tests, copied over the dgvoodoo files, applied the 3DFX patch, applied Dege's P4 patch, switched my desktop to 16 bit and attempted to run the game. It switches resolution, I get the Ubisoft logo screen, then it quits back to the desktop.

Note that I'm trying to run it under 98SE, not XP.

Any ideas what else I can try?
