Well, it seems like I have the same driver version.
So I installed windows95 instead of 98, with the diamond drivers. And guess what?

No change, well that backfired.

I have the original mw2 3dfx orchid CD en route from the US with an eta of feb the 17th. Maybe there is something with the archive.org image.

Tbc.

Builds:

Xp2400+ gf3 ti200 + vd2 SLI 12MB + 768MB + SB live @ WinXP & 98 Dualboot.

MMX233 + S3trio 3D/X2 8MB + 3Dfx Voodoo 1 + AWE64 + 64MB SDR @ msdos / win98.

What good would that do?
The game, nor the card is using any of that. 🤔
And win95 only goes up to 8.0a.

The newer DirectX packages also include all of the previous versions of DirectX, so updating ensures you have the latest DirectX 2 that MechWarrior 2 uses.

Reinstalled win98SE with dx9.0c 2006 release.
Tried Diamond and orchid drivers.
