Has there been any support implemented for the old 3DFX tank game Recoil?

Long ago.
I have and test the "Classic's CD-ROM" version of Recoil with any new nGlide version. But AFAIK the original version will work ok too.
You need EmulateSlowCPU ACT fix for main .exes (recoil3dfx.exe and recoil.exe).

Thank you but how do I set EmulateSlowCPU fix?

I have the original CD version which came free with my old Compaq PC tower back in 2000 but even applying the 95 or 98 mode the program fails to even run after the time cursor animation, I happen to be using Windows 7 by the way.

Tested the game today on Win7 x64 and it works without a hitch. Is your graphics card Direct3D 9 compatible?

Ah managed to get it to open, however it freezes then crashes after pressing any of the buttons on the main menu unfortunately. Yes my card is DX9 capable.

Post your Rec3dfx.exe filesize and CRC32. Also tell me what did you do to get it to open?

Well surprisingly it now works, I'm not sure what I did anymore but I found I don't even need to put it into compatibility mode, only problem now is random black screen blinking but it's only a minor issue I guess, thanks for the help so far though oh and I can only run it via Recoil.exe but not the Recoil3Dfx.exe.

I can play this game (Recoil PC) on windows 8.1 for single player, but I can't play it for multi player. Although, just for testing it without opponent, I cant't play it. It stucked when it started to load. Do you know how to solve this problem. Thank you.
