I am having issues with running some 3Dfx games on a Voodoo 3. Have installed the V3 on a slot 1 MB (Asus P2B). Then installed the v1.07 drivers. Have set the display resolution to 1024x768. Didn't notice any graphical artifacts/corruption with the windows 98 desktop and display.
1) Interstate '76 Nitro
After installing the game and choosing 3Dfx mode, it simply refuses to run under hardware acceleration. Getting an error "Failed to initialize 3D hardware acceleration" immediately after the 3Dfx splash screen. After downgrading the drivers to 1.03, restarting the PC and trying to run, the game only gives the option of software mode. Is this the expected behaviour for this game using V3?
2) Mortal Kombat 4
The game install and runs. However it works in only a windowed mode. Tried to resize to full screen but in vain.
3) Need for Speed 2 SE
After installing the game first with v1.07 drivers and trying to run it, the race track was completely distorted. Then after downgrading to 1.03, the game now works but not sure whether it is hardware or software mode as I didn't get the 3Dfx splash screen.
Need help in fixing the above issues. Thanks!
