Formula 1 '97 3dfx is no longer working

Post by agathosdaimon » Tue Jul 03, 2018 8:22 am

Hi!
this is a strange one, I installed psygnosis's Formula 1 '97 a few months ago and at the time it ran fine with nglide (apart from small glitch with an onscreen ) but now the 3dfx is totally broken and i have no idea what at all has changed - when going into the game everything is fine until in the menu you go to start a race and the game just gets frozen on a screen with the text and images doing strange things - its hard to describe, but one has to ctrl-alt-del to get out of the game. If though one plays the game with the D3d exe then it will run but the graphics look rather poor with its colours and its sky looks awful and rain effects missing and may even just crash after a while, thus the 3dfx is preferable and it was running very well before

would anyone be able to help me on this? I raised this over at vogons, but that forum has few people reply on it

thanks!

I'll check what's going on, but first post your nGlide version + settings and OS version/subversion.

PC specs might also be useful.
