Thanks, I've tried every wrapper that anybody has mentioned on forums, but still no luck.


Maybe there are some specific settings for the Voodoo wrapper that make this work?

What's Voodoo mode in ini anyway?

Voodoo/3DFX were a family of video cards back in the late 90's and early 2000's. They were different from today's Intel and AMD GPUs, kind of like a Chrysler to Intel/AMD's Ford and GM.

Meaning, the chip sets were different and proprietary. Voodoo graphics only ran on Voodoo cards.

No, I know what they are/were (I've been gaming since Test Drive, the 1987 one ), I'm asking what mode number is it in the ini file.


"Mode" in *.ini refers to resolution, I just remembered, I meant the render mode. What number do you put in DeviceID?

Quote:
.AdapterID 0
.DeviceID 0
.ModeID 4
Let me rephrase the question entirely - how do you set up the VooDoo renderer?



And what settings should I use on the VooDoo setup menu for the wrapper application itself?



When I place it in the folder, it does let me start the game (despite copying any of the Glide dlls or dlls from the MS folder), I do see the text at the bottom right corner "dgVooDoo" for a couple of seconds, but the game quits on me.


I see there was already one discussion about this https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=54985


I seem to have a similar problem.

Never mind. Due to other issues I am going to reset my laptop to the factory image and start over.

Guys, how do you configure dgVooDoo wrapper for DW?


Nothing seems to work.


dgVooDooo tutorial posted here does not work - DW CTDs.

Add this file to your install directory. It worked for me.

I want to change my resolution on Windows 10, but when I go to the folder that's supposed to have the .ini file I need to edit in it, it's empty. Does anyone know about this or what to do?

Another question, how do I run this in windowed instead of fullscreen? Even if I enable compatibility for 16 bit color it still won't open.

Check your PMs.
If you're a new player of DW, RA might not be what you're looking for.
RA assumes you've been playing DW for enough years that you're getting bored. Its also meant for multiplayer games instead of single player.
It looks great in single player but you tend to die quickly.

LWAMI 3.11 is still the better option for single player (you can download it here).
