SW 3DFX is much easier to launch than Blood's and has a few more fixes' too, hence version 1.1
*Please note that although Shadow Warrior only requires 16 MB of system RAM, you must have 32 MB of RAM in order to run the 3dfx version.* This patch was developed by 3dfx, and is not supported by 3dfx, GT Interactive, or 3D Realms. The 3dfx patch was designed for and tested with 3dfx Voodoo cards, and does not work properly with the Voodoo Rush, Voodoo2, Voodoo Banshee, or Voodoo3 chipsets.
