hi all

since Left 4 Dead uses the Source Engine I used SFFT Alpha 41 and game did boot but had a white menu screen which was useless, then I used SFFT 1.5 and that was alot better saw the zombies in the background but the menu it's self went white untill I clicked on an option so that wasn't a good thing either so my question is, did anyone get Left 4 Dead running on the ir 5500's or 6000's if you did manage to run it, please tell me the details because I am willing to run it here also since HL2 worked this game should be possible, it's just a matter of finding out.

Hello, i have the same problem.
Using game menu, everything is white, and i can't choose nothing.
So i tried to launch game click on single player and then always "enter" on keyboard. In this case, game seem work but return after some second to Windows.

I am no programmer but the engine that is used it the same one used for Half-Life2 as I can recall I dunno how people got that to work I dunno if 3D analyze could help, never got used to that program but there have been experiments that some people have gotten the Source engine to run on VSA-100 cards

Hello, I'm new on this forum.

I have a problem with a SFTT 1.5 Driver. When I click SETUP, i have an error -

The current language is not suported by the Device Driver Installation Wizard.

Contact the vendor that provided you this package.

I'm from Poland. I reinstall Windows, and it's not change. When I want to change driver in hardware manager, win tell me that in localization where i have a SFTT driver, has no better driver than is already installed (windows standard driver for voodoo).

(sorry for my english :P)

2x V1, V2, Rush, V3 Velocity 100 AGP, V3 2000 AGP, V 4500 AGP, V 5500 AGP.

Yes it's true. My voodoo velocity 100 and 55k work with wide screen. Now i'm working with 1440x900 with acer AL170W and ssft15.
You have to add the resolution configuration manually (hope it will add in the future). just open 3dfxvs2k.inf and add the following line

HKR,"TIMINGS\1440,900\60Hz",,,"GTF"
HKR,"TIMINGS\1440,900\60Hz",Supported,,"BPP+8+16+32,DDRAW"

or with your case

HKR,"TIMINGS\1680,1050\60Hz",,,"GTF"
HKR,"TIMINGS\1680,1050\60Hz",Supported,,"BPP+8+16+32,DDRAW"

it should work.
