So, recently I've been messing around with this PC I've built. Here are the specs: Pentium 4 2.53GHz 512MB DDR Voodoo 3 3000 16MB 160GB HDD Pioneer DVD drive Sound Blaster Live! Windows 98 SE For a long time I could only get 3D games to work with Glide; DirectX games wouldn't run at all. The program would exit immediately after opening it. So, I was looking online and I found the solution; I simply had to remove and reinsert the Voodoo 3. Now Glide and DirectX games are working. However, I can't get Resident Evil 2 working for some reason. All other Glide and DirectX games I've tried work, with no problems at all. I've installed the game on the HDD and the CD is inserted when I try to play it. What happens is that, when I try to run the game, it shows the "explicit violence" warning, and then it freezes at this screen. The CD continues spinning for a while, and eventually it stops. When this happens, the system is totally frozen and doesn't respond at all. The only option is a hard reset. I've tried selecting multiple different video cards in the graphics options; all produce the same result. I read somewhere that some of the Resident Evil games on PC have an issue that's related to DirectX sound acceleration - and that if you set the sound acceleration to "Basic" or "None" in dxdiag, then this solves the issue. I tried that, and it didn't work. I also wanted to know if the problem was related to my sound card; so, I removed my sound card, and also disabled the motherboard's built-in sound device, and this had no effect on RE2. So, this basically eliminates any possibility that it could be related to sound. Other than that, I saw a post on a forum somewhere of a person who said they also couldn't get Resident Evil 2 to run with their Voodoo 3 system. But there was no response. I know there was a patch for RE2, but as far as I know the changes were minor and I doubt it would solve this issue. I should probably try it, though. So, I'm pretty much out of ideas of what could be causing this issue. I know that sound is not the issue, and also that DirectX is working fine in all of the other games I've tried. It could be that the Voodoo 3 just doesn't work with this game; in that case, I wonder if there's any way to get it working. Any ideas?
