In Windows XP it works perfectly without any compatibility. Only one thing, you maybe use old heretic2 patch it to 1.06

Heretic 2 needs windows 95 compatibility setting to run (without it, the game frequently crashes on level loading screen).
Lol please forget what I said because It frequently crashes with w95 compatibility setting too!
I'm using windows seven and my heretic 2 is labeled v1.00. Never had problems running it on Xp.
Upgrading to 1.o6 doesn't seem to do much. Let's say it's unstable but playable on seven (and probably vista) :roll:

Tested. Looks like the cause of the crashes is the sound engine.
Lowering of the sound acceleration in Xp cured the loading screen CTDs in Heretic II version 1.00 for me. In the 1.06 you can choose the sound provider and this trouble is not appearing.

I guess its because after Glide initialization redguard use software mode for drawing menu loading screen etc,
nGlide can't work with that in this moment.
Same happens with Descent II, we see 3dfx logo and next is black screen (and nothing happen) but its wrong descent II draw message about 3dfx version, and you must press esc key to continue, you can test it with Ykwong build as redguard.
With nGlide Descent 2 work too, after 3dfx just press esc when you see black screen (but you should see warning message instead black screen)
also it might be good tip here http://www.si-gamer.net/gulikoza/
RedGuard (set the cycles to <20000 for the game to start)

No, that's because Ykhwong's DOSBox build handles cycles=auto variable better than the other 2 DOSBox builds. Descent 2 'green message' is another story.

Driver's Education '99 from Sierra runs under XP using nGlide so it should be in the compatibility list. Actually it runs with uglier graphics without nGlide but after installing nGlide you get two "Glide" resolutions available in the Driver's Education graphics options. Using those you get nicer graphics and the spinning 3dfx logo at the beginning. :D Congrats on a cool wrapper.
