Ok, sprites are flickering on the screen.. what the h*** is up with that?
1. Problem with hardware scaling with the RUSH chipset. (Stringray & 3dBlaster Banshee both use this chipset)
To turn off the hardware. (may slow down other games, so don't forget to turn it back on when you are done..)
To do this, run DXTOOL.EXE (comes with Directx 5+) and should be found in your control panel. If that fails, search your entire HD for DXTOOL.EXE.
UNCHECK "Direct Draw Acceleration".
