Tank Racer - Sound, Black screen

Postby kuphus » Mon Nov 23, 2015 10:17 pm

I installed the NGlide software and tried to get the Tank Racer game (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tank_Racer) working. But after the videos were over and the real game started, I was left with sound and a black screen.

Nglide wraps only glide API. Or the opengl through 3dfx ogl->glide wrappers. So if the game not uses glide - nglide can't do anything.
Tank Racer uses d3d and PowerVR (?) as I can see from my copy.
P.S. Had you patched the game? It can't play music/detect the cd w/o the patch for me. But the game itself is ok...
Asus P4P800 SE/Pentium4 3.2E/2 Gb DDR400 (3-3-3-8),
Radeon HD3850 Agp (Sapphire), Catalyst 14.4 (XpProSp3).

Hmm, you're right. I tested the game on my windows 7 host, and the game works. But I'm building a virtual xp gaming machine for legacy games. On the virtual xp (sp3) with NGlide, tank racer won't work.

It is not nGlide's responsibility to provide compatibility in this situation because Tank Racer is not a Glide-based game nor is it a "miniGL"-based game.

You should seek help elsewhere, kuphus. Perhaps the Windows section of VOGONS.org.
