Its Incoming. I used to play that on a demo on the Dreamcast

Hmm, the graphics are definietly screwed and I believe it has something to do with the fact that since it is old, it uses an old 3D engine called 3DFX.
Though it does say it should be compatable with Direct X 3D too which is a bit weird. Is there some kind of setting in the Start menu? Like a program to set this up before running the EXE?

If there isn't, you can actually get 3DFX emulators for video card drivers that emulate it for games like this, and will try and look into it.

i hope this helps

Ah, in that case, have you got updated drivers, which might have better compatability?

I'll try installing Incoming on my PC to see if it works with my ATi card later.

I wouldn't think it'd have problems running it though since its an old game, and even a onboard card should run it rather well.

hehe, I'll definietly check it out on this machine.

It might be something to do with the 3DFX engine, and in that case, i'll go hunting for an emulator for it
