I'm building a pentium 3 pc and first I did put just geforce 2 mx card in the agp slot and installed dos 6.22.
I have 2 identical diamond voodoo 2 cards and I wanted to try playing lands of lore 2 with 3dfx. I install the cards and install the sli cable.
I install the game and update it to 1.30 to get 3dfx support. After that I run the game and it starts but no 3dfx detected so I just think that I probably need the glide2x.ovl file.
I copy glide2x.ovl from diamond drivers to the game directory. Version 2.54, I think.
This time 3dfx is detected, but when I try to turn on hardware acceleration, I just get black screen and computer is frozen.
I try few different versions of glide2x.ovl, but it still doesn't work. Perhaps one of the voodoo 2 cards is broken, so I try them one at the time, but that doesn't change anything.
I decide to try what would win98se think about the voodoo cards. I install win98 on another partition, I install driver for geforce 2mx and then I install Fastvoodoo2 4.6 for each of the voodoo 2 cards in device manager.
After the reboots, I check the display properties and everything seems to be working and SLI is detected too. The demos that came with the Fastvoodoo2 4.6 drivers seem to be working too.
After that I try dxdiag and it says that 3d acceleration is not available for the voodoo 2 cards.
I try to run lands of lore 2 again with the win95 executable and it s same again and I get black screen and freeze when I try to enable hardware acceleration.
Same thing happens if I try running the dos executable in dos mode.
Anyone has any ideas of what I could try or do I just have to give up?
