This official patch for NHL 99 adds support for the Voodoo 3 graphics card to the game.
VOODOO 3 UPDATE INSTALLATION INSTRUCTIONS Follow these instructions to add Glide Voodoo 3 support to NHL 99. NHL 99 must already be installed before proceeding. 1) Locate and open the folder that you extracted "NHL 99_Update.zip" to. 2) Double-click "3ddata.exe". Though it appears that nothing happens, this is an essential step to the process. 3) Right-click the "3ddata.dat" file and choose Copy. 4) Open the NHL 99 folder on your hard drive ("C:\Program Files\EA SPORTS\NHL 99" is the default installation path). 5) Right-click the "setup" folder and select Paste. The Confirm File Replace window will appear. Click Yes to replace the old file with the updated one. 6) Close all windows. Click Start > Programs > EA SPORTS > NHL 99 > NHL 99-3D Setup. Select 3dfx Voodoo3 as the 3D Graphics Renderer. NOTE: If 3Dfx Voodoo3 appears twice amongst the 3D Graphics Renderer choices, it is because the first utilizes Glide and the second utilizes Direct3D. Either choice should work well with NHL 99. 7) Launch NHL 99. 8) Enjoy!
