I tried version 2.52 with mechwarrior 2 mercenaries titanium installed through mechvm. I copied over the 3 dlls into the game folder, set the game to run in 3dfx mode and used mostly default settings in the setup file except that the 3dfx watermark is unticked.
Everything works fine, until i enter a mission. The 3dfx watermark is always displayed in the bottom right corner of the screen even though i have it unchecked in the setup file. The game will also crash everytime i exit a mission with the error saying that the game is trying to shut down from an unexpected fault.
I tried the game with nglide 1.05, and it won't crash 100% of the time when exiting a mission, but has a high tedency to do so shortly afterwards when switching menus. nglide also has an issue where the screen will keep flickering (going black for a split second) in missions at random intervals, and after playing a mission, the game's colors will turn rainbow and distorted.
I already have desktop composition and visual themes disabled, the game running in win95 compatability mode and 256 colors.
System is win 7 64 bit.
Why is dgvoodoo causing the game to crash all the time when exiting a mission, while nglide only does it some of the time?
