Lately i'm setting up every PC and console i have to be readily and comfortably recorded, one of those is a WIN98 machine (Pentium III 733 - 256mb RAM - SoundBlaster 5.1 - voodoo 3 3000 AGP and matrox millennium II 4mb) that i use for DOS\WIN95\98 stuff, i thought the voodoo 3 had a borderline perfect compatibility with DOS games but after trying dark forces i wouldn't be so sure, this is the game running on the voodoo https://streamable.com/18ccz
As you can see the picture is jumpy at times and random lines appear on the screen (it never happens during cutscenes\menus) it looks as if the card is having problem with the refresh rate, i tried every driver and i searched for this issue everywhere but to no avail. Before today i never actually tried to add a second GPU to this machine since i thought the voodoo 3 was good for 2D and 3D stuff, but today i tried since i still had a PCI slot free and the voodoo is AGP giving me the ability to swap easily between the two from the BIOS, this is the result https://streamable.com/uxanm
Not a single problem, has any of you ever encountered this issue with any other DOS game using a 3dfx card ? now i'm actually happier to be able to switch to an older card for better compatibility with older games (like blood for example), so i guess all ended well.
