Thanks, but how can I indentify the date you say?



So I go under the section Voodoo3 and download the driver near the release date of my video card? I take the glide2x.ovl and put it in the game directory?

Sound familiar, all I had to do was to put REM in front of device=c:\windows\emm386.exe iirc.

The creative drivers for Windows 95/98 should work fine with 98SE. I've Always used those. Take a look at falconfly.de

You can also try a game that doesn't need a CD and boot in DOS safe mode, that way you can make sure your drivers (glide2x.ovl) are ok. I've used Carmageddon 1 for this often, boot up in DOS safe mode, start the game and see if it freezes. If it doesn't there is something in your config.sys (like emm386 in my case) or your autoexec.bat that the game doesn't like. Could even be a mouse driver or whatever in your case?

Only other thing I can think of is a processor that's too fast, but that only happened with my v2 setup. Still might be worth a try to downclock your CPU to check if it still freezes.
