i'd have never known there was any problem with the V3 running tomb raider if you never said this... to me, the v3 was running it flawlessly 🤣
I tried playing Tomb Raider on my Voodoo3 for a while, and those were the issues that stood out for me. More details:
- Lara's missing shadow - makes it a bit harder to drop down from high ledges (since you can't see where she'll land) but otherwise, mostly a cosmetic issue
- Pistols flashing with white outlines when used - this one is a bit more annoying, but it goes away if you by turn off anti aliasing
- Incorrect gamma - Adjusting gamma values under the Voodoo3 Windows driver panel had no effect on DOS Glide games. You can somewhat compensate for this by tweaking the brightness/contrast on your monitor, but that never looked right to me. OTOH, you can use these variables on the Voodoo1 to fine tune gamma as needed
Additionally, I don't think it's possible to control the refresh rate of DOS Glide games on a Voodoo3, so they always run as 60 Hz. On the Voodoo1, you can once again use environment variables such as SET SST_SCREENREFRESH=85 to adjust that. This is only relevant when playing on a CRT monitor, where 60 Hz produces way too much flicker. I don't remember if it was possible to override the refresh rate using VBEHz though.
