    Pod video game problem

    Right I own a video game call "POD - Planet of Death" someone should know the game (Planet of Death - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). me and brother been trying to get it to work on a Windows Vista we change the compatibility to Windows 95 to play it, So the game starts and plays the intro but after that finish the intro main menu goes all weird and flickery, we got round this and fixed this by minimising the screen but when you started the game you hear sound from the game but no gameplay and sometimes after this the game crashes and shuts down. I put a video link to give you a better idea how what happens, If anyone have any ideas pleases get back to me asap. Thank you. click on the video to see the whats going on.

    This link might give an insight into the graphics issues: -

    Glide API - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Glide wrappers and emulators
    Glide emulator development has been in progress since the late 1990s. During 3dfx's lifetime, the company was aggressive at trying to stop these attempts to emulate their proprietary API, shutting down early emulation projects with legal threats.[3] However, just before it ceased operations and had its assets purchased by NVIDIA, 3dfx released the Glide API, along with the Voodoo 2 and Voodoo 3 specifications, under an open source license,[4] which later evolved into an open source project.[5] Although no games released after 1999 depend on Glide for 3D acceleration (Direct3D and OpenGL are used instead), Glide emulation is still needed to run older games in hardware accelerated mode. With the specifications and code now open source, there are several capable emulators and wrappers available allowing older games that make use of the Glide API to run on non-Voodoo hardware. Other projects like Glidos allow even older games to use Glide.
