MORE INFORMATION

The following are confirmed problems with specific video cards:


  • Alliance Promotion: Video card driver version 4.1.3409 can cause
    problems with MS-DOS sessions when using Windows 95 after playing
    GEX. To correct this problem, use video driver version 4.1.21 or
    earlier. If you do not have driver version 4.1.21 or earlier,
    contact your hardware manufacturer.

  • ATI Rage 3D: As of this writing, GEX will run on this card.
    However, other games that use Direct3D may not run on this card
    because of incomplete video drivers. Contact your hardware
    manufacturer for updated drivers.

  • Diamond Stealth 3D 2000: If you experience bad flickering or a
    garbled screen when running GEX in Full Screen mode, you may have
    an early version of the video driver from Diamond. Contact Diamond
    Multimedia to obtain the latest drivers for this card.

  • Diamond GT: The DirectX installation overwrites the Diamond GT
    video driver with an incorrect driver. Contact your hardware
    manufacturer for updated drivers.

  • Imagine 128 Series 2: DirectX installs a faulty video driver for
    Imagine 128 Series 2 video cards. If you experience bad flickering
    or a garbled screen, reinstall the original video driver for this
    card or contact #9 to obtain the latest drivers.

  • Matrox Impression: Currently there is no DirectX support for Matrox
    Impression cards.

  • Matrox Mystique: As of this writing, GEX will run on this card.
    However, other games that use Direct3D may not run on this card
    because of incomplete video drivers. Contact your hardware
    manufacturer for updated drivers.

  • Orchid Fahrenheit: DirectX installs a faulty driver for the Orchid
    Fahrenheit video card. Contact your hardware manufacturer for
    updated drivers.

  • Rendition Verit: As of this writing, the current set of drivers
    for the Rendition Verit chip set does not allow GEX to run in Full
    Screen mode. Refer to your manufacturer for the latest update to
    the Rendition card with DirectX 2.0 compatibility.

  • S3 Virge: As of this writing, GEX will run on this card. However,
    other games that use Direct3D may not run on this card because of
    incomplete video drivers. Contact your hardware manufacturer for

    video processors, which includes Diamond Viper and SDIS video
    cards. Contact your hardware manufacturer for these drivers.
NOTE: Many DirectX related problems have been resolved in the
