05-08-2002, 12:47 AM

This looked like as appropriate a spot to ask this as anywhere. Hopefully someone can answer my query.

Does Jedi Knight 2 support 3DFX cards? Im running with a Voodoo 3 3000 and I wanna make sure the game will work with it before I plunk down my money for it.

Thank you for your replies. I look forward to reading them

Good night.

A friend of mine had the same card with WinXP and he got a GL-Subsystem error on startup of the game.. updated drivers and latest DirectX. You really ought to save the $40 for a new card.

For the record, I believe they are not supported.

My system is kinda old and consequently Im running Win98. Anyone have any heads up on this scenario?

well it seems a little simple research could have answered my question. For those interested I will post this for you. But short answer. They are not supported, however it seems they will work with the latest drivers with Win98 and possibly WinXP or Win2000, no guarantees.

Long Answer:
3Dfx Voodoo 3/4/5 display card users.

At the time of release of Jedi Knight 2: Jedi Outcast, 3dfx is no longer in business. Because of this, we will be unable to provide support for 3Dfx cards. This being said, we tested these cards in all operating systems with the drivers listed below to provide information for people still using these chipsets.

3dfx cards are not supported in Windows 2000 or XP. The official drivers for these operating systems are not OpenGL compatible.

I suggest that you download and install the latest retail Windows 95/98 driver for your Voodoo display card.

The Voodoo3 1.07.00 WHQL (DX ver. driver is available at the Voodoofiles website.

The Voodoo4/5 1.04.00 driver is available at Download.com (do a search for Voodoo5 > In Downloads) or try one of the following URL's:



Please note the following issues you may encounter using a Voodoo 3/4/5 card with Jedi Knight 2:

The Mon Mothma hologram may be displayed as a white rectangle.

Pre-rendered cutscenes may flicker between the movie and a white screen.

The in-game menus may be a little blurry. If this occurs, they will still be readable.

The screenshot of the saved game may be displayed as a white square in the Load Game and Mission Load screen.

Games may not save or load properly.

Saved games may take a long time to load.

The screenshot of the saved game may be graphically corrupt in the Load Game and Mission Load screen.
