Resident Evil 1 black screen

Post by psyalemao » Thu Jul 01, 2010 6:56 am


I know this game isn't in compatibility list, but it supports 3DFX.
Well there's option to select two video cards with 3DFX support
Diamond Monster 3D and Orchid Righteous. Using nGlide 0.92 and Win7 x32, the game starts and show the 3DFX logo, the virgin interactive logo and then the screen goes black and suddenly the taskbar appears. The game seems to stil be running but don't let close, only through task manager. If a video card with Rendition chipset selected, after the virgin logo the FMV sequences displays and the game is playable

Resident Evil was unfortunately not designed for Glide API. It was designed for DirectDraw/Direct3D, no matter what graphics card you select.
