These drivers are really great. Congratulations SFFT job very well done. Only other thing that I would like to mention is that, I think this is driverís issue. It seems like the drivers are missing "Focus" Meaning that I find that when using multiple programs or opening programs they seem to "Hang". To get them to work, I find that I have to click on the window and or desktop. Plus some time when going into full screen with MS Flight Simulator I get a blinking mouse curser on the screen with a small square box around it. To remedy this I must go back to window mode then back to full screen to make it work correctly. Also when changing views I get popping textures and other times they display properly.

It hasn't much to do with the SFFT drivers, however, NFSU2 isn't running under Windows 98 SE with Evolution drivers.. Sadly, a blank black screen, the game doesn't crash however :P

Anyone here tried "Flatout" on SFFT? It works with 3danalyze in Windows 98, but it crashes after a few minutes :(

some kind of good news:
before he can't play the game:
Site is: http://jy2.chinesegamer.net/index-all.asp
System Requirement is:http://jy2.chinesegamer.net/index-2-1-1.asp

Image Insert:

45.44 KB

and he request help in a local newsgroup and i suggested he to use SFFT Driver (Alpha 17), now he can runs the game(but his final comment is that it's too slow to play, although no image problem)

so that's the report, thanks SFFT for making great DirectX driver for Voodoo

No way a 3DFX collector...just a 3DFX die Hard Player~~

Hi everybody
Can someone else check sfft 18 with a V3 on WinXP
I had these issues
Some app. restart (H.L. counter strike in D3D mode, dxdiag doing the D3D test). This is since SFFT 17

Other app in opengl mode or with minigl run fine but when I exit the pc go to a black screen, no way to see the desktop again.
This is since SFFT 18

Please anybody confirm that, to be sure if this is a driver issue or something on my PC and/or config.

There does seem to be a problem with V3's since the Alpha 17. I partly removed some of the relevent changes in the Alpha 18. I will remove some more from the next version, I find that certainly the DxDiag program works under Win2K on a V3. I can't test the V3 driver under XP.

The Dxdiag 'works' normally, it say that all the testīs were ok, but the box with the Directx logo simply spins like crazy, totaly unfocus, very weird, with AmigaSport 3.0 it also happens, but is stilll possible to see the box spinnig...with SFFt drivers the performance really improves, im playing Colin Mcrae 2.0 and blood 2 and with you driver they run with everything on max, but after some time the system crashes

Did you try to enable the V-Sync in the 3dfx tools ?
