I know a Voodoo user who sees lighting effects. Kriton Azerrath. He has a Voodoo 3...

Use the latest version of DirectX
latest version: 8.0a
http://www.microsoft.com/directx/
(if you are using WindowsXP you already have DirectX 8.1 so no need to upgrade yet)

Latest drivers for your videocard!
nvidia card owners should use Detonator XP drivers

I remember. Try running at 16 bit or 32 bit alternately with a Voodoo, and use anything below 2.1 Beta 3...

Beat Stefan over the head until he upgrades the Graal engine to run atleast 30 FPS instead of the horribley slow-moving 20.

You can see the screen update it's so slow. ;\

*team voice* BREAK!! I don't know what you could possible tell him to do... 2.1 is already fast, I don't know if he can optimize it much more!

By the way... Hurry Stefan, we await patiently the final release of 2.1 pleeeaaassseeee

Why anyone would buy an X-Box is beyond me. Rent one.

Good choice.

The reason for PS2 going obsolete very soon is that it renders EVERYTHING, and by everything I mean even what the screen isn't look at. That's bad because it sucks up a lot of CPU power. Computers/Dreamcast/N64 and other things only render what needs to be rendered.

Not to mention PS2s lack of video ram.
