No change for me with the SFFT13 drivers. Ghost Recon works well. As for my kneeboard in Microsoft Flight Sim 2004 same problem with the bllack window. In Fast preformance my frame rates crunches to a halt with the kneeboard open and in 2 sample the frame drop is about 20%.

@SuperFurryFurryThing,

Could you try to see if its possible to get your drivers working with Halo, it seems as if it only works in a win 9x enviroment at the moment ? Would be a great achievement to get this game working on appropriate Voodoo cards on xp/2000

As for Halo, I have not seen any information as to whether it works or not. I simply don't know. Are you claiming that it doesn't work, have you tried it.

Can you supply more information on how Halo fails. What driver did you use, have you tried the latest driver. How far did Halo get into starting etc.

Thank You for this great job, SFFT!
But some bugs are still exists, i.e. in the Need For Speed HP2 special effects on the cars don't work (no mirrors and goround shading) and Mechwarrior 4 Mercenaries reboot the machine with BSOD.

Ok!
HALO vers. DEMO
SFFT 13 Driver
WinXP SP1 Directx9.b
The game shows a 'screen-note', this card doesn't support the minimal requirement for this game.

Since i was able to see the first screen where you see the title of the game (Halo - Gearbox - Bungic) (after "some" hours of thought ), i can say for the moment :
- the game doesn't support "naturelly" a 3dfx card
- 3DAnalyzer seems absolutely needeed in order to "start" the game (or new error message)
but immediately
- i get a "Halo - Fatal Error"
A problem occured initializing Direct3D-Hardware acceleration, may be disabled, please run DXDiag
("of course", DXDiag runs perfectly) (perhaps a problem with 3DA)

Asap, i will install again Win2kPro and the demo.

I don't suppose that anyone has tried the commercial version of Halo. I wonder whether the Demo requires Hardware T & L, I thought that the game didn't need it.

T&L
perhaps but when i enabled this feature in 3DAnalyzer (software or hardware), that doesn't help to start the game. You need to play with the options dedicated to the performance in the utility.
If this game can run under Win2k/XP, that will be probably with a very good tweaking and a good driver.
Hum, other thing : i tried the x3dfx beta driver 13/02/2001 and the demo didn't "started" even with 3DA, a little amazing since this is the core which ran the game but under Win9x.
Asap, i might try other drivers and indeed owning the full game would be more interesting.

It would be interesting to know what settings were used to get it to run under Win9x. I believe that the last 3dfx beta for Win9x, is still the best core in some respects. The core the later drivers are based on is an earlier less advanced version. I would suggest that you try the demo is fastest performance or single chip modes under SFFT as these have more texture memory availble.

Microsoft has a number of command line switches avaible at their website, these could come in handy, if anyone can find them again. I found them, printed them off, and now can't seem to trace my way back to the site or find the printout. There's one for fixed-function cards, they cite the gf2mx i think, so that should also theoretically work for voodoo 5, it's like -ffunction or -fixedfunction, something like that. wish i could remember, i hope someone can do something with this info.
