Win98 SE+ Unreal Tournament Demo - NV Geforce 6600 GT - 81.98 drivers OpenGL is not working.

Hello,
i trying to make work Unreal Tournament Demo (weaopons are better for me than in full version) in Windows 98 with Geforce 6600 GT and 81.98 drivers.. Quake III is working fine with OpenGL, Unreal Tournament Demo is working fine with Direct3D and Glide (nglide 2), but when i try OpenGL i get game starting crash. It is working on Nvidias with Windows 98, it there some fix etc?

You realize that this forum is for old Windows games on *modern* systems. Marvin is for old systems/OSs.

I not usually post here.. so move it if you can. We need better descriptions, because there was only:
Getting old Windows games working.

And that even my post match..

Try an older driver like v77.72. 81.98 is known to be very flaky.

Here was my thread about shutdown problems a while back.

The UT demo has a broken OpenGL backend. It's very old and the demo predates the core changes that would make Donhal's OpenGLDrv replacement work.
by the way, DOSBox is not for running Windows 9x

Oh, I see. I was just chiming in because as far as I am concerned 81.98 in basically unusable.

If you only want to play the demo for the weapons, could you add them to ut99 as a mutator using unrealed ?

UnrealED is too much work, unless someone will make mod instead of me.. Otherwise i tried patched OpenglDrv(124KB) for full game version, there are some errrors during game start and 3D device name in games has wrong name, but otherwise it seems to work.
