I've the following problem:

My 3d-card is a Nvidia TNT2 (32megs) and I'm running Dx 8.0a.

It just does not want to show his thing in 3D! I tried drivers from Nvidia AND several other manufacturers but that doesn't work as well.

Please, does anybody have a clue how I may solve this problem?

System:
PII 433
128 MB
Nvidia TNT2 32mb video

Thank you in advance, greetings,
plz_daim

Nvidia is your problem! Man i HATE Nvidia, and there cards... They must have a bunch of idiots writing there drivers. Oh well i bought a VooDoo5 for $89.00 and it runs everything oh so well...

well, with some creative installation habits I managed... My experience with 3dfx isn't that good. They stopped making drivers and sold their techno to Nvidia!!

Monadire, I would like to know what drives you are using because I have the same card but it's not working with this game (I've noticed some versions of the drivers from Nvidia have major problems)
I don't use DirectX v8.0 ethier

Looks Like ME serves Better With The tnt2 Driver It provided..My hangs Are finished. It is not very useful to use the driver provided by My manufacturer "Powercolour" and There isnt any...its a bluff..there is no update for ME in Sniper2 Riva TNT2 M64(as far as my search) that we can get from any manufacturer...And The detonator Drivers From Nvidia..peice of junk...because it is too general and not specified for model 64...This is not good..they seem to be very lazy at specifying the drivers...im very disappointed in Them http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif

DirectX 8 seems to be having a few problems with a few "older" games, games that weren't coded with DirectX 8 in mind. DirectX 8 has some really nifty features that next generation games will be using that some older games don't support. This could be the cause of a lot of peoples' problems with crashing, freezing, ect...

to add to my post

my system is nearly identical to yours, plz_daim. I'm using a system i built myself...

P2 450
128 megs of RAM
Diamond Viper TNT2
SBLive! sound

Ive found the latest Detinator drivers, which can be downloaded from the Nvidia website, work very well. If you bought your system from someone like dell, gateway, or compact (ugh) then use the tech support that you are paying for and call them up http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif

Original Direct X has LOTs of missing Files in ME..To SEttle it..find the missing Files Yourself and Put it in The C:\windows\system and also in The C:\program Files\DirectX\Setup...
I did it and When I run Dxinfo...no Porblems except for Dxinfo for XwingAlliance..It sez lots of outdated files...At least my windows isnt showing problems... http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/smile.gif

Thats because your XWA has a file in it called dxdiag.exe when you are using the XWA autoplay and you hit hardware config and then directx it looks to the file in the XWA directory. That file is for directx 6 if you delete it and put a shortcut in the XWA directory for the new dxdiag under your program files dir it will show all the files as ok and ver8...
