Found that
EF2000 seems comes with latest spd3d.uc (spd3d.uc inside contains header with "ELF" that reminds me apps on linux same or almost same header. Rendition developers is linux funs)))? all dos games comes with spd3d.uc so that means its dynamically linked as for example glide2x.ovl in dos 3dfx?

thare is Nascar2 demo that also have rendition support

there is rumors that if you copy spd3d.uc as spd3d.uc2 it allows you run on v2200 , need to check.

Formula 1 contains weird file winspd3d.uc

by googling "spd3d.uc" you can quickly find games , they all already documented here

tomraider demo can be played with verite card, its can be found on 3d blaster pci diver bonus disk

i also found sp3d3.voh file, looks like source code, or decompiled, in non readable or understanding form (

another idea is to change spd3d.uc from another game to descent2 , so maybe it fix purple color on s220 video card

Hello need help, i can't run these games on Diamond Stealth II S220 (i use driver sii95110.exe) on Windows 98SE
Formula 1 - can't start without verite files being copied from verite folder, tells me about missing VL_VeriteOpen_ not found on dll, if i patch exe and change to VL_VeriteOpen and generaly for all that exports, it starts and closes so quick. With Verite folder provided by game it starts and when demo should play it goes black screen and freeze computer.
Heavy Gear - it crashes right before briefing fully expanded, software rendered version ok
Team Apache - any other version gave me error "Couldn't find Drivers for ramp graphic option" "Fatal Error"

I have Purple tint in Descent II
and heavy purple tint in Scorched Planet
is that also can be fixed somehow?

Are any other Rredline games working in Windows, or is it just those?

Some DOS games will not run correctly, even if you use V2dosfix.

all works , and i make Team Apache and Heavy Gear Woks (almost ) Team Apache donesnot use bilinear filtering and hang sometimes, Heavy Gear only Treaning woks.
All other dos and windows works ok.

so i have only one left to check is "Formula 1"

as i read on internet even on fastest v2200 vQuake and vHexen and vQuake2 will not work faster as on v1000 because code un optimized and designed for v1000. right? so no point to buy v2200 rendition card for these 3 games ?
