No.No error messages.5 minutes ago i've install 3DFX Voodoo 4 4500 AGP and under windows 98 Drivers succesfuly detected SLI and at that time screen blank for 1 second. All of my Glide games
succesfuly started on a SLI cards.But in Unreal i saw picture like on slow TFT monitors.I think that problem is in R9800PRO.
Please HELP!!! I cant work and play in latest games on my Voodoo 4.Its a cool video card but its too slow for 3DSmax modeling

The mismatched drivers are not gauranteed to work every time, and Monster3D II is not reference compatible,so don't expect to ever get those cards working together in SLI. I'd advise you to aquire an identical card to one of your existing ones. I have a Creative Lab's 3D Blaster II that won't work with reference boards in SLI. This is commonly the case with Diamond/Orchid/Creative Voodoo2's.

In Windows 98 my Voodoo cards works perfectly!I think this is only drivers problem.Those drivers didn't work at all.
I will wait full version of this drv and then will test it on my system

Ok.Thanks for your reply.Hmmm.In Windows 98 when Sli is enabled drivers didn't detect 24Mb ram on my Voodoo.But when i install mismatched drivers from RUSSIAN developer it detects 24 Mb perfectly.I know that it's not a trouble but i think you must fix this bug( if you want and have a time:))) Good luck!

Heh! This is ANDREI OSNOVICH.And those drivers (Modified Glide and D3D drivers) was written in 2000
This drivers kit is "Upgrade" to final Voodoo 2 drivers under Windows98 by 3Dfx interactive inc.
So i can say that is very good and stable drivers.Now i use them.But if you will update your product by fixing all those little bugs. Who knows maybe tommorow i'll install your driver kit.I dont know what drivers is faster - it is not a main problem.My opinion is: Drivers for mismatched Sli Voodoo 2 must be stable and compatible with mos games.

Don't forgot that A. Osnovich wrote :
Note that this kind of SLI mix has some potential unsafety being caused by possible differences in board architectures. I'm not aware of. So this binary is supplied as-is. It is your responsibility to decide whether to use it or not.
