Formula 1 '97 graphical glitch with Nglide

Postby agathosdaimon » Thu Mar 22, 2018 9:39 am

Firstly I want to say that Nglide is a godsend - for so many old games i have it works brilliantly,

for Formula 1 '97 from Psygnonsis it also works very well, except for one small but frustrating glitch - with using Nglide, the in game on screen yellow box that says your car position, is blocked out in all yellow, so one never know what position they are in the race. - the race starts and for about 20-30 the race position number is visible but then it disappears and just a yellow box is there, i have tried a number of variations - vsync on and off, resolution changes, compatibility setting change,s but nothing alters this disappear race position number

i am hoping someone may have a solution for this because apart from this, the Nglide 3dfx works perfectly well for the game.

thanks!

Hello,

a screenshot demonstrating a problem would be nice. Please also post your PC specs, Windows version, nGlide version and if you use 2.00, a Video backend selected in nGlide configurator.

here are some pics - the race number disappeared pretty quickly this time round and no matter what position i change to, or what settings changes i make it does not return -

if on the other hand i play the D3D version of the game (it has exes for both glide and D3D) the race position numbers are always there, however the D3D version is graphically less impressive and darker in colour contrast so much so as to make it impossible to see anything when the track is rainy and missing some parts of the F1 cars appearances. thus the 3DFX version is the preferred one and it is otherwise perfect except for these missing race numbers

Of course you'll have to wait for a new release.
