Hi all.. I am setting up a voodoo2 rig (I have two diamond 12G cards) and am running only 1 card atm. I have tried the fastvoodoo2 4.0 GE drivers and koolsmoky's drivers.. I have to use the fix memmap error patch also because I always get that unless I use the patch after changing drivers.. the weird thing is, under the 3dfx v2-1000 tab in my video control panel I have only a drop down selection for "Glide" and nothing for "Direct3D". Is this normal??
the rest of the system is:
MSI K7N2 Delta-L with xp2600+
Riva TNT2 64
I am running windows xp sp3 and the 61.77 nvidia drivers for the TNT2 and directx is patched to it's fullest I can get on xp32. I have tried cleaning and reinstalling the Glide drivers a few times and always the option for Direct3D does not show up in the 3dfx control panel. Glide apps work fine but when I run something like Star Wars DFII it doesn't use the voodoo card for sure...

Thanks! yeah, I am using miniGL for openGL right now... when I tried to install the wickedGL 3.02 package it gave me an error.. something like "no space to unzip" or something.. I have 90G free so not sure what's up with that... it actually did unzip too when I clicked "ok" but the setup.exe wouldn't run. the miniGL seems to be working fine but I see most people here prefer the wickedGL.. I might try and DL it again but things are working ok for now. I got my second v2 and SLI'd them up. It's so cool how well this old hardware still runs. :)

Yes, so it is. You can play opengl games on winXP, too. You will have to use wickedGL, MiniGL or MesaFX for this.
experimental D3D support under winXP wth this driver:

PS: the text on the info tab is also messed up. kind of like described here:
"Neither driver showed all of that information as legibly as your screenshot does. It almost looked like the text was off center."
I can only see some info but it's like the text was too big for the info box... I am wondering if the Nvidia drivers are interfering or something.. I might try and old ATI card is the primary.. also maybe using the stock voodoo2 driver for xp.
edit: AHHH... ok, looks like XP is the issue here... nothing based on the NT kernel will allow glide to run D3D according to this:
"V2 SLI runs best under win9x/ME, XP drivers donít have D3D support, there is only support for glide/opengl."
I found that from this thread.
