    [​IMG] Has anyone solved the problem with Voodoo cards running Neverwinter Nights ?

    I have a Voodoo3 3000 (yes I know I should upgrade to a GeForce4/5 but I don't have the money. My machine meets the rest of the spec and I've never had any problems before.
    NWN just will not run as it won't play the videos and starts with a white screen displaying the buttons. When I go to the options all I can see is the slider bars and the check boxes. As well as this my refresh rate keeps getting set to 7350000 ?

    I got M.O.H.A.A. working using the OpenGL drivers from Quake 3 and it works fine.

    What problem? There is no problem. NWN will not run with a Voodoo card. It's as simple as that. Read the readme if you don't believe me, or trust this quote from it:

    Trawled the forums over at NWN official and came up with a way to make it work.
    Install the Sciteck GLDirect program and it works. Graphics aren't great but it works fine. The link below lets you download the 21 day trial.

    Thanks for the help.
    Have spent the weekend playing and I must say it's a great game. :)

    [​IMG] What are you still using a voodoo for anyway? Jees, a real dork would at least save his pennies for a Geforce 2.
