Freelancer text issue.

Has anyone figured out how to fix the issue of the blinking or invisible text with older graphics cards. The only thread I could find basicly said I have a soultion for this type one of card, the rest of you can go fly a kite. I have a Voodo 3 and it used to show the text although the textures of the ships and Trent didn't show up. I changed to a different processor with the same video card and now I have the infamous dissappering text bug.

I think if you actually check out some files, the voodoo cards are not supported, or "blacklisted" in the files as having nearly every feature turned off.

There may not actually be a fix other than having a different card. If I remember, I'll have a look when I get home (in around 12 hours).
