Today I downloaded the Glide Wrapper Glide2x.dll and the configuration file OpenGLid.ini so I could once again the full visual gloryof RB3D. Since I got my off-the-shelf Dell Dimension 8200 for Christmas, RB3D has lost that crisp look.
When I fired up the game after installing the above files (after backing up the originals) I was shocked to see RB3D looking so good again! At last!
However, a slight problem. Although the game looks visually excellent, there is absolutely no sound of any kind. I am not computer savvy, and my troubleshooting consisited of different settings within RB3D--nothing. So, I got rid of the new files and went back to the old files--still nothing! So, I uninstalled the game, then reinstalled.
Once installed, I flew around--full sound, including effects and music. Next, I backed up the original files and installed the two new files. Same result! No sound. Again, I got rid of the new files and went back to the old files, and the sound was still gone.
Since then, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the game again, which is playable in direct draw only. I have not installed the two Glidos files.
Any help with this matter would be greatly appreciated! Remember to please "dumb it down"--I'm pretty much a computer moron. I think this Glidos is awesome and I am excited to again play my multi-year campaigns in RB3D, but I can't do that with no sound! 🙁
Thank you very much for your time.
