interesting info-maybe MS has learned their lesson from the vista fail and is planning to release an OS that is not just a load of (insert bad words here) for a change? thats..unexpected.

Any help with the way 3dfxtools installs on xp would be great:)

I have not messed with voodoo from the windows 98 days.....A lot of it seems totally new just because I have not had one of these cards installed for years.

I looked for an old voodoo install cd around my house with no luck. I might have to go look for an ISO somewhere. I think that could helped me look at the new improved ones and the old ones to see what was changed in it.

Why does it give the error at all on the install of 3dfx tools?

try the ones from falconfly's archive: http://www.falconfly.de/tools.htm

make sure you dont have a second graphics card in your system (only the v5 should be in the pc,no other geforce/radeon cards),and try to install them..3dfx tools behave oddly under xp,on some machines they install just fine,on other ones the first install will fail but the repair will fix it,and on the last ones they just wont work no matter what.I havent been able to determine the cause..

Could I get someone to type regedit then export their working 3dfxtools entry? That way I could import a working set into my broken set.

Host it here for now:)

I'll put it in a ftp site if it fixes the issue with 3dfxtools.

Also installed a pIII chip today and analyzer started working:)

Also I can use V.Control 1.82 beta for settings.

These're great results.

I want to thank all you, and not only the "new entry" DaMulta (you're welcome) and "our old" Rolo01 for their screenshots caputerd by Windows 7 and Windows Vista systems (:)).

But...please note this's not the final step but it's simply another step. And so, of course, any newer report'll be appreciated and useful for us.

Bye bye

I could still use the registry export from XP lol


Found a P3 733(After I killed a p4 motherboard lol) anyways my 6 year old put the machine in a case this evening and she started back up.
Tomorrow me and him are going to unlock the p3 and clock it up a bit.(maybe to 1Ghz if we are lucky) He wont let me work on this machine without him because I told him he needed to do that before he could help on the current machine lol

Will be testing DX(3d-analyzer came up with the p3(I can remember doing it I think.....95% sure it was on that machine)



--------

This is what he wants to help on.





Stock volts ATM


Crap past used it on 3 CPUs and smeared it with my figures. Makes a big difference with - temps.

Also

Ordering a 220 Watt(should of already....Ill do that in a bit so I don't forget. Now I don't know if cooling the voltage regualtors into the zeros will help or not. BUT it could change the wave pattern IMO and help keep the wave balance.

This looks bad ATM but it's just a setup for now. Going to paint everything up....rough build.





So this 8800gt will be volt moded may hit 900-1000Mhz stable. Friend/team member of my team ocLIT(Official overclock team of Palit Video cards) has one stable at 900 on just water. I was going for a grand lol. Then I'm installing 2 9800GTX on water in SLi, and the 8800GT will be used for physx

Run that on a ASUS 790i Ultra(I'm thinking about spray painting it white really hard) with 2Gb of Crucial2GB kit (1GBx2), Ballistix DDR3 PC3-16000(2Ghz)

CPU QX9650 will be on water for now. Should hit 4.5Ghz on it.

All for fun it's just going slow.



And yes the pennies are funny as hell. lol

I might go ahead and get a copper plate, but saying I did it with pennies is price less LOL.


OK back on topic lol.

The November DirectX SDK includes a beta version of the WARP10 rasterizer. Because WARP10 uses the same software interface to Direct3D that is used by the references rasterizer, any Direct3D 10 or 10.1 application that can support running with the reference rasterizer can be tested with WARP10. Rename D3D10WARP.DLL to D3D10REF.DLL and place it in the same folder as the sample or application and when you switch to ref you will see WARP10 rendering.

If WARP10 is renamed D3D10Ref.DLL and placed in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft DirectX SDK (November 2008)\Samples\C++\Direct3D\Bin\x86, the DirectX samples can all run against WARP10, either by clicking the ‘Toggle Ref’ button in the sample, or running the sample with /ref specified on the command line.

one of the guys from 3dfx.cz has tried out the 1.5 driver with the latest win7 build,and it seems like it works fine on a voodoo4 card (d3d,glide and opengl alike) while failing on a voodoo3 (BSODs,lockups,awful 3d performance)..still amazing

Was his 3 PCI or AGP?

My 5 is AGP



Did he get tools to install?

IDK I don't want to install XP so I can export, but ...... yea

So voodoo 4/ and I think voodoo 5(not totally sure have not test a lot of stuff)works in vista.

I only got a blue screen when I tried to alt-tab out of a game that was just glide. It didn't like that so much lol.

I've been benching Vantage for about 8 hours straight lol....I has a new trick now tho.Freeze the voltage regulators. I added ice into the water line after it failed 10 times in a row. Then past. Then clock it higher and yep. Just need to get another TEC and or Dri ice to throw in the line.

Hi.
Just a simple problem and most likely did something wrong.

I can install the 1.5 drivers (via the device manager) on my vanilla XP SP3 system, however I'm stuck at 640x480 4Bit (16 colors).

Any ideas?

I can do all that stuff even without joystick ;)

Hi all,
everytime a new version of these drivers comes out, i'm taking off my pc with the Voodoo5 6000.

[URL=http://img218.imageshack.us/my.php?image=pc150069at1.jpg][/URL]

I began yesterday to try this new sfft 1.5 on Windows XP, and seem really stable!
With new games such Unreal2 and Painkiller Overdose, i notice that using Set3Tile option seems faster.
