It is worth posting problesm, that can be reproduced as an examination of them can shed light on other problems.Do you think that this desktop colour corruption started with Alpha10. There seems to be some serious memory corruption going on somewhere. if you run 3dMark2001 the machines takes a long time to reboot when shutdown after running it. This seems to happen with all of the W2k drivers, I believe that this is down to memory being corrupted by the driver, unfortuately this has not been resolved yet, it needs fixing. Working on tools is not a priority given the number of problems with the driver.

I also do believe there's something about memory corruption because
i get crashes on 3dfxvs.dll very often. Even just browsing my files,
opening/closing a window etc. Maybe it happens after i play that
Carom3D game I mentioned before. But the fact is that it doesn't
occur with AM3 DX dlls.
How i know it's 3dfxvs.dll that's crashing...easy...I disabled WinXP
auto-restart upon error feature. So the system crashes to the BSOD
and tells me which device is the culprit. Everytime it happens to be
the 3dfxvs.dll.
I did that not only to test it. But to guarantee that the reboots
weren't happening caused by other unknown problem with my system.
Sorry the long post but i thought it was necessary for the context
we're dealing with.

I have the same isseu with the crash caused by the 3dfxvs.dll. It seemed to me like it this allways happenes after a fresh install. Then it seems to go away. The SFFT11 drivers, the crash would occur much more frequently. Though recently just before the SFFT12 drivers where released. I changed my registry settings to enable "UseGTF=1". It seemed like this stop the crash but I would not know maybe it not related at all. I ran my games a few times with this setting without incident. Testing should of been longer then I installed the SFFT12 drivers and played my Flightsim game. After 30 minutes I crashed with the 3dfxvs.dll. Rebooted the machine and so far it has been OK. I played my game for a couple of hours without incident.
I still have problems when I open the window of my kneeboard while in full screen mode. Something strange also happens that may or may not be related, is that when I fire up the game and start playing and as I switch to full screen mode. A few seconds after the screen starts to flicker two or three times then stops, ten seconds later another two or three flickers. Now what I found is that when I open the kneeboard, I get a flicker and then a blank window as mentioned in previous post, but the screen flicking stops.

What is the "role" that is missing in the game Commando 3. I couldn't see anything obviously wrong from the screeshot. I have Commando 3 so I should be able to duplicate this.

LOL, that's a funny glitch... No legs!

Alpha 12 is a stable driver indeed. It doesn't randomly crash when surfing the web like it used to in alpha 3.

I would just like to report that the laggy FPS spikes that I found in live for speed have been fixed and that these drivers work perfectly in Gunbound. Good Job!

I think I found a potentially BIG/HUGE problem with the Alpha 10's.

WindowsXP SP1 (All neccessary updates)
SFFT Alpha 10

The problem occurs with Microsoft Outlook Express (6 offcourse).
Sometimes when I'd go from one of the subfolders to the root in Outlook Express, my computer would reboot!

I am 99% sure it's the Alpha 10 drivers because the problems occurred after I installed Alpha 10 and since I removed them I haven't had a single crash.
