I can confirm that the Screamer games crash only when using sound via VDMSound, but in WinME using naitive SB Sound rather than emulation, it works a treat. No sound, works well in XP, and very fast.
Screamer 2, works a treat in WinME. But in XP, it's the dreaded "Insert CD" problem.
Ignition, works well in DgVoodoo upto version 1.20. After that, Ignition shows those rainbow coloured textures.
Outlaws, works superb, and only this well with DgVoodoo. Infact, I'd say it's perfect, as I've got roughly half-way through the game without a single hitch.
Blood 2, and Shadow Warrior, I get a complete mess of everything on screen. Plus, it's all a sort of rainbow coloured effect, as well.
Croc, works superbly. Very fast, and no corruption on textures, etc..
Swiv3D, only works well in WinME. In XP, I get a Procedure Entry Point, problem.
MDK, works well, but has a sort of widescreen effect going on. This doesn't happen in Openglide, so it's definately DgVoodoo.
ManxTT, only works in WinME, where it works very well indeed. In XP, I get an Application Error.
VirtuaIceMan, I don't suppose you would be willing to share that hacked German .exe, you have, for Dethkarz ? I bought the game a while back, but could never get it to do anything in WinXP. Strangely, the demo works.
EDIT: Found Dethkarz exe, and it now works. Just to add that, it works much much better in D3D mode, than it does in Glide mode. You get a much better selection of resolutions/bit depths, and at 1280x960 with everything on in Dethkarz, and 6xAA 8xAF, it looks pretty darn good.
