Hi!
the 14 is the first driver i successfully could install! But im not sure about the usage. Is the sense of this driver, when i enable DX8 Support, that i dont need to use 3d analyze to play/view p.e. the 3dmark 01? In jurassic park or wc3 i cant see differences...

greeting thrak

Hello,

Yesterday I tried the UT2004 DEMO and it works 'well' under WinXP & V3 3500 with SFFT Alpha 13 and D3D!!!

@SFFT,
I have a V3 3500 Compaq with not TV-TURNER, and yesterday night I tried to install it, but I could not do it, because the .INF has not the PCI\VEN for this card. Later, I will post the PCI\VEN and so If you wish, you can to add this for the next lauching SFFT Alpha 15 for V3 3500.

Saludos,
napalm3Dfx

The SFFT14 drivers are great very stable and fast. My flight sim games works only in 16 bit with the SFFT14 when I try to test in 32 bit, my opening screen is completly black and all you can see is the mouse curser flickering busy-normal real fast. In 16 bit the gmae graphics are great, My kneeboard still does not display in fast and 2AA, the boards displays well in single chip.

These seems to be a problem with the Alpha 14 playing intro movies to games such as Freelancer.

Hello SFFT, I just did a lot of testing with your D3D drivers and this is what I have found. It appears that the SSTH3_SWAPINTERVAL for Direct3D causes a lot of trouble. With it enabled, some games will work ok, while others turn up blank at startup, and a few others get garble all over the screen as if there is a conflict with the 'in game' vsync v/s the driver vsync. With it Disabled, almost all my D3D games work without problem, but Vsync is not enabled! I think this is the cause of a few issues i've read in this thread with people getting blank screens at startup. Also, it's nice to see that the Glide/OpenGL issue in 'Fastest' and '2x' after Direct3D HAL run is 'mostly' fixed on the 6000... it will run, but there are squigly lines across the screen.

Other than these issues, the drivers appear to run great! Nice work!

Nice work SSFT, I'd like to ask you if you could improve detection of all four VSA-100 chips on V56k when is running on AGP2PCI. I have this config and it is only running on Win95/98 because W2k driver can't detect others chips and it is only working in single-chip mode. It's pain for me because I have AGP8x board.
I think that Hank could give you more info about this.

AthlonXP 1.86GHz@2.2GHz (barton), 1024MB PC400 RAM,MSI KT6-Delta LSR,
Voodoo5 6000 rev. 3700 A1 + Voodoo4 4200 AGP(Daytona) and many more...
