DOES NOT WORK WITH NAME BRAND
3DFX Cards and WAS KNOWN not to work BY the Developer
Here's one guys email. to
TALONSOFTWARE add-on Devil's
Bridge for HIDDEN & DANGEROUS DOES NOT WORK WITH NAME BRAND 3DFX
Cards and WAS KNOWN not to work BY the Developer with issues they found
in EUROPE while testing and release in Europe but they did not address
this issue. WHY. Here are some people who all got messed up
with this lousy programmed game.
These message straight from
I just got DB today and am
having trouble running it. In my search for a answer I came across the
H&D unofficial site. It was there I found out that voodoo3 owners
in Europe are having serious problems. I have a voodoo3 2000 and the
game goes through all the load screens fine but when I get to the mission
set-up screen it crashes with a DrawlndexedPrimitiveVB:DDERR_INVALIDPARAMS0x80070057
fatal error! whatever that means. My biggest ? is why wasn't this fixed
before shipping in the U.S. there was enough time. Also now that I opened
the game I only have 10days before I can return it otherwise I'm out
30.00.So will it be fixed soon??
Here's another one
Having the same problem.
If I use the back level voodoo3
drives(from the CD) the game starts working , but run into other problems,
like the you can't quit the game without rebooting win98. The uses of
the old drives is a bad idea since alot of other games depend on the
lastest video drivers. Is this a problem that will be fixed soon? If
not, then I want to return game.
And another one
Why Promote DB? Ashton, perhaps
you can help explain why TS would back this product, given the numerous
problems and bugs, especially with a very popular video card like Voodoo3...
Methinks TS's reputation is being harmed more than you think
KEEP GOING MAN theres more
So far the only way to get
the game to work is with DX6.1 and older voodoo drivers. The same problems
happen with a RIVA TNT with DX7. I tried ebrinks uninstaller but without
much luck. And i'm in no position to reformat.
How come ? I have heard that this game was released in europe first
and that they were having problems with voodoo3 cards! How come it has
been released in the US without addressing this problem. I have gotten
the game to run with taking off DX7 and and loading DX6.1 and older
voodoo3 drivers (reformating hard drive to do this!)the first two levels
run fine then comes level three and the game starts to slug along so
anyone thinking of doing this it is a wast of time! Man I hope this
is fixed or this game is going back and think twice before I buy another
Talonsoft- T2- game again!
Your add-on messed my orig install of HD
all my saved games
all my time and efforts cause I trusted your add-on.
Talon needs a good kick in the ass for letting a product out untested
with name brand hardware and using there updated hardware and drivers.
Guess were dealing with a company trying to cut corners, while they
collect our 45.00$ expense. Sure save your money let us deal with sloppy
How very very nice. I will
not get my money back for RD let alone HD bought 9 months ago. I guess
your companies laughing and I am out 45$ less in my pocket that I could
of put towards another game.
I know next time I will not
purchase TALON or ILLUSION software or ANY T2 product, That I will share
with as many people out there.
Nice work TALON / T2 very
very nice work. Hire some educated programmers and don't be so quick
to take shortcuts in testing and benchmarking your product.
YOU GUYS ARE SUCH LOSER FOR
THIS RELEASE... OUCH
I think the guys who can't
run this game should get together with the people who can't run Ultima
IX and switch. :)
