It certainly runs in windowed mode on XP. You have to edit the config to set windowed mode. I would try different resolutons. I think that I had it set to auto resolution.

The drivers work very well, they have excellent performance. They are keepers and they shall stay in my PC. I have trried all modes and evrything functions well with great stability. I have not found any difference between 3 tile an 4 tile. The only problem I have is the kneeboard. Take a look at the two picture below

Here is what the kneeboard does in 2AA and Fast Performance, See how the widow come up black.

Well, I continue having problems with the SFFT Alpha 15, like aleatory reboots. I have tried this driver on 2 different systems with the same effect: A lot problems of instability...
¿Somebody has those problems?

Regards,
Oscar

There certainly are games that can cause a reboot with these drivers Need for Speed Underground is one and Halo but only on XP. The drivers aren't perfect by any means, but they should be stable running most games I have seen. I presume that your problems are game specific.

Thanks SFFT,

Perhaps, but many times I get those mistakes without to play to any game. That is to say, in applications WindowsXP (Outlook, Nero...)Is it normal?

@oschkar,

Very strange problem(s) you seem to be having, as I would guess I have 50 or so d3d gaming hours in on the Amigamerlin 3.1 drivers, testing all of the directx games in my collection and have not had a single problem to mention.

Great job SFFT

Exactly Voodoo5, my problem is very rare... I have tried this driver on different Systems (My home, my job...) and I get the same mistake (Screen Blue Advise referent to 3dfxvs.dll).

ps. I know that SFFT is doing a EXCELLENT work.

Regards,
Oscar

Have you get 2 graphic cards in your machine. I have tested on different 3dfx cards under both XP and W2k on a range of motherboards and processors. The only stability issues I see are related to specific games.

No, in both cases I just works with one graphic card for system(V5 PCI & V5 AGP). I have noticed that the problems come on some games and Outlook Express.

EDITED:
Well, I will try tonight other possibility. I will install the AMIGAMERLIN 3.0XP (Not Core D3D SFFT) and so, I will see if I have the same errors. Perhaps the problem is my system!!!

Oscar

What drivers are you using if you are using Amigerlin 3.1 try the SFFT Alpha 15.

@Osckhar
Lately, I've been having the same problems as well with the random reboots when I am surfing the web or something like that....It only happens when I leave my computer on for a while and start using it again tho....

@Onkel Adrian
Alot of D3D games need single chip, for example with the free game, vsys gaiden. I have tried everything and I saw the exact same problem but since this game is quite small it always crashed instead of rebooting my computer but when I changed to single chip mode I found that. the graphics were fixed as well as it not crashing. Maybe that is the problem?

@ Onkel Adrian

The game is not very demanding :
PC Multimédia Pentium II 266Mhz/350Mhz
Graphic card 3D 4Mo
Microsoft Windows 95, 98, ME and Win2000
DirectX 7.0a or supérior.

A Voodoo 3 can also run this game.

- Did you try to run the trouble shooter ?
To start the trouble shooter, click Start, point to Programs then to Microsoft Games : point to Train Simulator and then click Train Simulator Troubleshooter. Click Troubleshooting.

- Try also to run the driver in mode DirX7.

Another little bug that I noticed with the SFFT15 drivers is displayed in the window here below. See the bottom right of the picture the task bar windows do not go away. I clicked on them to display the window and 80 % of the time the window closes and the other 20% of the time the window stays displayed. Even if I open other windows the tasks bar windows stay there and always on top. To get rid of the widow, I must click a function in the window then the window disappears. Also when this happens I seem to loose focus on desktop and window keyboard button that opens the start in the bottom left of the desktop is inoperative.
