Re: Old GOG games are slowly getting killed

in Windows
The problem with add accelerated effect in software mode, was cpu power. The arrival of 3d cards was due to the lack of power of cpu versus 3d cards like voodoo. allow POD 3dfx mode (30 fps on pentium 90 with voodoo 1) in software mode, a cpu at maybe 1ghz would be needed. At the release of pod, the …

Re: Old Windows games Running on Windows 10 without issue.

in Windows
W10 simply blocks those old copy protections. Never heard of them messing up W10 so badly that you have to wipe and reinstall. OP must have gotten confused or broke something else in the process of trying to install the game. Anyway, I believe F22 Lightning 3 will work, as do most Novalogic Windows …

What's the difference between the two that would prevent dgVoodoo2 working? I'm trying to get Direct3D 8 games such as Splinter Cell working on Windows Vista …

Re: problem with lands of lore 2 3dfx dos version

Just adding to this topic, has anyone tried LoL2 Win95 D3D edition with DGVoodoo2? It seems to crash, but works fine using DXwnd and also works in native Windows 11. It's one of the few old D3D games I've played that works better without any wrappers/DLLs, for a 1998 game I find that crazy. This is …

Re: problem with lands of lore 2 3dfx dos version
