Gex 3D: Enter the Gecko won't launch

Postby snaphappy7530 » Thu Jun 06, 2013 3:05 am

Gex 3D: Enter the Gecko will have a blank screen after intro movies then crash to desktop.
I installed the patch with nglide.
I have Windows 7 64 bit SP1 (+all current updates) with Nvidia Geforce 550TI.
Any ideas on how this could be fixed?

"3dfx only" version or d3d version with glide patch?
Did you lower the audio acceleration level (AFAIK w/o the lowering intro and game sounds are bugged).

d3d verison with patch (I also tried without patch). I also tried it on a MSI GT683 with Nvidia Geforce GTX560m, same problem.
I'm rather sure that after Windows Vista, due to all the old issues with soundcards, Microsoft implemented standards and therefore isnt audio accelration anymore.

You are talking about this patch or this patch?

Sorry for abandoning thread.

So years later I tried again with a latest version of glide and the Gex patch.
Idk if I did something wrong the first time or if you changed something or your end but the game will launch now.
I remember the first time I tried the external patch you linked which worked but the link is now dead. The patch and nGlide was enough to get it working this time.

I've still got the "no music" issue though.
