So the demos of both Fifa & NHL 99 had SGL support but it was removed in the release?
FIFA 99 installs powervra.dll, ragea.dll and veritea.dll. Rage and Verite are forced to d3d in 3ddata.dat. PowerVR isn't. IMHO -- FIFA 99 can be named as SGL compatible.
NHL 99 has powervra.dll, ragea.dll and veritea.dll too. Verite is forced to d3d, Rage isn't affected (this game can use the CIF API). PowerVR isn't listed in 3ddata.dat so this API isn't available. But there is the POWERVR_D3D=0 string...
To force the SGL API -- use "Group"="NEC" and "Thrash Driver"="powervr". Or add the "CARD_PowerVR" string in 3ddata.dat...
