How to Play Recoil Game on Windows 8.1/10

Recoil is a windows based PC game released in 1999 by Zipper Interactive. This Game received millions of positive reviews and Game was very successful. This involves player to complete the various mission and operate a battle tank known as “BFT” and fight against other powerful Artificial intelligence tanks through various stages.

Recoil game is actually built for windows 98/95 Platform.So using Normal Installation procedure , we can’t run this Game on latest machines which are using latest Operating system like Windows 7/8.1/10. This game is really mind blowing and fantastic. A battle tank “BFT” having lots of weapons and fighting with other powerful tanks in various stages with lots of suspense makes it really rank in top ten among other battle tank games.

Now a days very less number of peoples use windows 98/95 and everyone is going for new and latest machines. so it makes tough to play old famous Games due to incompatible nature of old games. Please Follow the below steps for Running Recoil on new machines.
(Its not recommended but please make sure , your PC has ATI radeon graphics Instead of Nvidia , In my case I have actually 2 computers , First PC has ATI radeon 5670 Card and second PC has Nvidia 820 and guess what , this Game running perfectly on my first PC which has Radeon graphics. I really don't know why).

Anyway let’s go ahead
Step 1 – First of all Download the Power ISO (Download from here) for building the Virtual disc drive to load the Game disc.

Step 2 – Now download the Recoil Game Disc file , I have NRG file (Download from here)

Step 3 – Last but not the least , Download the nGlide which is a 3Dfx Voodoo Glide wrapper. It allows you to play games designed for 3Dfx Glide API without the need for having 3Dfx Voodoo graphics card. (Download from here)

Step 4 – Now you have total 3 files downloaded to your PC. First of all Install the Power ISO software , then Install the nGlide wrapper

Step 5 – Mount the Recoil NRG file on virtual disc. (Assuming that you know how to mount the NRG/ISO file on virtual disc).
Step 6 – Go to virtual disc on which you have mounted the Recoil disc and press Ctrl A and then Ctrl C to select all file and press Ctrl V to copy all files to your local hard drive.

Step 7 – Once all files copied then find the autorun.exe, setup.exe and change compatibility mode to windows 98. Doing so, will allow you to install/Run the setup on new operating systems like windows 10.

step 8 – Now run the Nglide configurator and do not close it. Just leave it open running.

step 9 – Once the setup has been completed then in the Installation directory(Game -> Zipper)( generally inside C drive) . open the recoil3dfx.exe and click on start game.

So this was the perfect way of playing recoil on latest operating systems. Few gamer suggest playing recoil on virtual machines VM but I suggest Nglide configurator is best.

      Thank your very much. I had been in search of this game since long but could not find proper solution anywhere. The game is running perfectly. But it runs with the option ‘run Recoil’ and here the option to select game level is not found. When the option ‘Run Recoil 3DFX’ is clicked the error message ‘“Failed to initialize video device” comes every time. Please try to solve this problem and again, thank you very much.
