Ever since I had AW I wanted 3dfx support. I suggested it to many COF ppl but nothin. I thought about it and it would be able to be done. I really wish you supported it because my friend would
subscribed if they used 3dfx. I haven't even been using AW since my frame rates are 2fps.....yes that is 2. Mine runs like crap on my 133. But I do have a Pure3D and I can run Quake II at around
25fps which is much more graphic intensive. *sign* If only COF would listen. Also I was very disappointed to see that the upgrade I DL was basically just exterior upgrades. The only difference
since the last time I used AW is that the buttons are different and a new tab WOOHOO!!! I haven't used AW in like 6 months too haha after six months that is all they got done? Am I missing
something. I coudl care less about the new worlds are crap cause right now AW is pretty unusable.

Thanks, and maybe someone will actaully do something this time.

Preach it, brother. AW develops way too slow. They're gonna lose their "edge" (what little edge they have, or might, have) unless they don't develop it faster...

My solution to this problem ( I also have a Voodoo full screen) is to wait
for 3dfx Banshee or to but a Voodoo Rush card. Both will do 3D in a window
at Voodoo speed and with Voodoo (Glide) compatibility.

Well, not quite. First You have to have a working (reliably) AW Direct3D
driver which we don't and also, AW/Renderware is just funky and I don't
think will ever run totally smooth except in lightly built areas with few
animations (unless maybe you want to live with Visibility set to 40 or less,
which to me is like going out and driving around in the fog).
