    video drivers

    It doesn't work because you need to get new video drivers. I had a v3 3500 that had the problem. I just got new drivers that had glide api for xp and it worked. Really smooth too.
     
  3. yah, what i did this morning was i downloaded the offical den. drivers from ndiva. That is supported OPEN GL and the generic one dat win xp loaded was one dat didnt support open gl, (im guessing) and it working now, and might i add, RTCW is tight ass ......
