Hi, a friend of mine has just recently got RTCW.

He will go onto a server then after about 2 minutes of being on there he will get kicked for the following reason which I will post a screenshot of in an attachment.

GFX - voodoo3 3dfx Ram - 128mb ddr o/s - xp Home

We were wondering if it could be that he d/l ed some dodgy opengl drivers as he didn't have opengl on his pc to begin with :s

If so is there anywhere that has opengl drivers for win xp, voodoo3dfx card compatable.

If anyone can help can they e-mail - [email=""][/email]

Thanks for your time.

Download drivers from Sadly, this card isn't very great but thats the only fix I know of. Beware we you install these though because if it breaks its not my fault (but they are very stable).
