I miss the self instalation procedure for the sfft drivers.
In xp there is no problem to rewrite the drivers...in win7 ultimate i can't go back to a previous version of the driver...
I try to go back to 1.5 sfft whitout luck.

Btw. Everytime i change the drivers the whole system , xp or seven, goes away....i have to reinstal a fresh copy of the os...thats the only cleaning way....with the drive cleaner is not always ok.
Any sugestion ??
To be honest, i hate this behaviour


Tested games:
Quake3 - ok
Wolfenstein - ok
Rune - ok
Pariah: see below !

Un-install the driver via control panel Add/remove software option and select the SFFT driver installed package and un-install it. There will be an option for un-installing software packages under Win7 Control Panel aswell, although it will probably have a different name.

Thanks SFFT !

Is there a possibility to integrate into the drivers also the 3dfx tool ?

I miss always with the driver instalation the tools that allows me to change the AA, LOD and so on...!
An overclocking tab would be great too :)

I was under the impression that the 3dfx tools don't work under XP and later. I thought that they edit the wrong registry key.

I wouldn't assume that the tools work simply because they are supplied with Amigermerlin R3.1. The last version I tried didn't work.

only under xp i get this kind of error.
It looks like a sli error and it apears when the fsaa is switched from no aa to 4x or 8x aa and back to no aa!
The picture is fragmented and the parts are cleary visible. After some seconds the display start to flash and finaly remain black.

@SFFT: can you please take a look at this phenomen ?

In win98se with the original 3dfx drivers the phenomen is not present.

If other user encounter the same error please mention this here.

The phenomen apear with the sfft 1.5; sfft 1.6, amigamerlin 3R.11 and Koolsmokey drivers

Thank you so much SFFT, for your continuous effort in making this driver better and better.

One suggestion: could you please include the mode 1680x1050 in default .inf, I know how to add it myself but I thought since 1920x1080 is in - why not this one.

And one question: any news on the hidden surface removal option - is it rational to expect it someday enabled by default for all apps Glide, DX, OGL?

Regards

Well done, i manage to install the SFFT 1.7 and the SFFT Tools.
The driver works so far very well, and the best is that the SFFT Tool allows now to switch in Win7 the AntiAliasing ( noAA, 2xAA, 4xAA ).
It's work fantastic

I tested the following games:

Half Life2 - didn't work, same error as with the previous version of SFFT 1.6.



3Dmark2001 - works very good. I test it with the 4XAA and no AA.
The score speak alone.





Duke Nukem Forever..yes..the game start as with the previous version of SFFT, the sound is running but no image....



Need For Speed Underground - runs very well.

No AA



4xAA



4xAA



4xAA



No AA


4xAA



The game running with 4xAA reminds me the god old NFS Porsche game in glide mode ....

Pariah - some texture errors, like with the old SFFT driver version.

4xAA



No AA


Odd is that the gun is visible in the game, but the PrintScreen button did not copy it ...

Unreal Tournament 2003 - works great !

4xAA



Unreal Tournament 2004 - works great !

4xAA


Angry Birds - is not working, the application block the PC and only a reboot save the moment :)

Serious Sam 2 - is not working.
Serious Sam 1 - works well.
Stalker - Prebuild Alpha 1154 - works well with no AA and with 4xAA.
Call of Duty 2 - is not working.
Call of Duty 1 - works well with no AA and with 4xAA.
Alien vs Predator - works well.
Rune - works well with no AA and with 4xAA.

SFFT Tools - i would have a sugestion here. The application did not start automaticaly with windows, so that it must be started manualy every time with administrator rights....

My Test System: Phenom 9850Be, 4Gb Ram, Voodoo5 5500 PCI, Windows7 Ultimate.


Many Thanks SFFT for this new driver version and the SFFT Tool !
Keep up the good work !

Follow your dreams !

You could try changing the enable tripple buffer setting, and also the DDI version number to a lower one than 9, via sffttools, at least they should increase your 3dmark 2001 score. they may affect game compatability particularly disabling the tripple buffer as it make more memeory available for textures, so long as the application does nopt need tripple buffering.
