Hi 3dfx Community

It's because I don't have onboard video in my MB...so the V5 is the only way to 2D in the V2.

As a matter of fact, I'm using V5 & V2 the same way. That's because I don't have non-Voodoo cards, and I need more platforms for testing. There shouldn't be a real conflict, since the Glide files are different (that is, Glide3/H5 won't detect the V2 devices and Glide3/CVG won't detect Napalm devices). The only problem is with DyrektEks, but I don't use it. As far as OpenGL / Glide is concerned, I'm following my own credo (ehm... ehm... some sort of funky installation):

2 questions:

1- How to make choice between V2 and V5 in games? In my PC just V5 works, same games have "3D Device Setup" but don't show Voodoo2 for select.

2- Why Win98 SE crash after install FastVoodoo2 4.0GE and select Video Properties?

...any help will be appreciated.

I installed the V5, but not the V2. However, I let windows make its show with V2, too, in order to map the device addresses. But I never provide the actual files for V2 installation. In english, I leave the V2 half-installed. Next, when I want to play something with V2, I copy Mesa, together with V2's Glide & fxmemmap into the game's dir. That's all. If I want to play the same game with V5, I remove V2 Glide and Mesa will use the default one (the one installed with V5 drivers).

Dunno. I never installed FastVoodoo. Everything boils down to Glide?x.dll and fxmemmap.vxd. Feel free to use the ones that come with FastVoodoo, it should work.

AFAIK, there are certain "Glide switchers" floating around the net, but I never tried any...

Yes, in the V2 everything boils down to Glide?x.dll and fxmemmap.vxd and the "Glide switcher" is the best way, thanks for tips.

I reinstalled the V2 drivers and finally work's!!! (I don't have idea what error happened before) ...then direct3d works too, but only in games and applications (like 3DMark) than shows "select 3d device" ...others only run in V5, because is primary display of course.
