Does this still work with newer drivers? 8.16.20 for example? It doesn't work 
for me.
(I don't understand this clearly from your sentence.)

That's exactly the problem I have! I expect it to occur too when Empire Earth 
finally runs. Can you send me your hack? I'd like to try it with D3D7.

Another question: I've hit a problem where fglrx crashes on glBegin(GL_*) when 
GL_TEXTURE_2D is enabled. Any experiance / hints?

Thanks for this hint, it looks like you saved me from doing a time-intensive
