GTA 3DFX mode on Voodoo 3 2000 not working

Postby BillyH666 » 2019-3-12 @ 10:23

Been trying to get GTA 1 to work on my 3DFX pc. When using the GTAFX.exe, the menus work fine, but the in game graphics are simpley a black screen with what looks like frozen lines of static. Does anyone know what could be causing this and how to fix it?

Wrong forum. This forum is for DOS games on *modern* systems. Ask old hardware and driver/configuration questions in Marvin. viewforum.php?f=60

Ah, sorry misunderstood the "modern" part.

I think Voodoo 3 (and above) are incompatible with games that were designed for Voodoo 1/2. I've never been able to get older DOS games' 3DFX mode to work on my Voodoo 3.

I think there are work arounds for some, Tomb Raider can use the banshee patch to run a voodoo 3 card, and Carmageddon works too. That said, this one might just no be possible.
