View Full Version : XWA newbie needs some help

07-17-2002, 02:33 AM
Hello everyone,

I recently bought XWA, something i should have done years ago, but never got around to. I'm loving it as much as i loved Xwing, and Tiefighter, and was up till about 6am playing. That said i'm having a bit of a problem.

I'm running the game under windows XP, with a geforce 3 video card. Quite obviously i have 3d hardware, however XWA does not believe me. I have to play the game in software mode. This is pretty annoying because while not top notch by todays standards, i know XWA looks better then what i'm seeing. Does anyone know a way to use 3d hardware with my setup?

Secondly, and this is related. I remember reading somewhere, a while back, that a group of people were updating the graphics of the game. I dont know exactly what they were doing, it might only have been a project to add greater poly count models. However they had a website. If anyone knows what i'm talking about(despite my vagueness) could you please give me the link?

Any help you can give would be greatly appreciated. Anyway, back to XWA...it is my master now.

Thanks for the link, and the quick reply.

I had tried clicking the "Enable 3d hardware" option, but it had been greyed out. i played around with a few things and something seemed to fix it. Now i'm enjoying the game AND the visuals(3dhw is working).
