I have developed problems with the SFFT drivers that were not present before. Ghost Recon has work with AA set to 2 sample and with fast and single chip it seemed like the pixel screen area was not set right. With the SFFT18 (see screen shot) I get a darker than usual screen with a lighter colored band at the bottom. In fast and single chip ghost recon starts with a completely dark screen. I have to Ctrl+Del the game to stop it. In flight sim I get a light colored band at the bottom with AA set at fast and in single chip I everything works fine. I also seem to get a noticeable FPS decrease when opening my kneeboard and or multiplayer window. The kneeboard has the same problem (displays properly in single chip only).

So where do we download SFFT 18? The news page has one link which says "Get drivers and make a report", and that just goes to the first post of this thread.

amigamerlin-win2k_xp-31R1 "bluescreen" in windowsxp sp2 desktop.
0X0000008E(0XC0000005,0XBFA411F0,0XF312481C,0X00000000)
3dfxvs.dll_Address BFA411F0 base at BF9D3000,Ddtestemp 4169aca3

Worldofwarcraft or another game is good run but "bluescreen" in windowsxp sp2 desktop at sometime.

Problem that amigamerlin-win2k_xp-3.1 is equal with them.

amigamerlin-win2k_xp-3.0 con't run WoW.
VoodooXtreme_1.07.01_WinXP_2K_V3_4_5 con't run WoW.
Amigamerlin consummately have to run WoW and possess wish most .

Can you know my shoddy English ?

There are WoW picture use amigamerlin-win2k_xp-3.1\sfft_alpha16\sfft_alpha18.







Very Good.

But if loading game again at game runing...





Thank you.

just to confirm that there is a problem with the Alpha 18 driver freezing when running glide apps. I have reproduced this.

Thanks, Nightbird. For some reason I always have trouble locating the latest alpha drivers (which is probably why I've been using 15 for so long).


Anyway, the good news is Black & White finally works with SFFT Alpha 18. The bad news is that emulation through glide drivers doesn't, which I'm hoping is related to this "Alpha 18 driver freezing when running glide apps", otherwise I hope you'll check it out.

For some examples, I tested both 1964 (Nintendo 64 emulator) and ePSXe (Playstation emulator) using the Glide64 0.7ME SP7 and Lewpy's 3dfx/Glide GPU 1.42 video drivers respectively. I can't even get 1964 to run games as it locks up when switching to full screen. ePSXe will successfully run the game, but if I ever attempt to exit out back to Windows either by pressing alt+enter or escape it locks up.

Contrastingly, the P.E.Op.S 1.15 driver in eSPXe runs fine, and I can switch to and from full screen without incident.

This is all using a Voodoo 5 5500 and Windows XP SP2, by the way.

@aperson
Don't worry. The best (if you don't find the last version and if you're on the home page of the Site) is (on the Latest news) to "Visualizza tutte le news" or to click on the "news" (Main) then to scroll the page.

I should have said OpenGl apps, although presumably glide has the problem aswell. Basically the machine freezes, but doesn't blue screen or reboot. I have found the cause for Quake 2, and presumably the others. Drivers before the Alpha 18 should be ok.

SFFT's work continues without a break: we have just received a newer alpha release of his Windows 2000 and XP driver. It comes with two packages (one for VSA-100 cards and one for Voodoo3 family cards) and introduces - like news - a general bug fixing.

Alpha 19 online for the V3 and the V4/5.

Yes, great job SFFT all my glide/opengl games are working perfectly again

Something I did notice though with the alpha 19, a few textures in commanche 4 are not displaying correctly (parts of buildings and railroad tracks in some levels are showing a light blue instead of the proper textures).

Once again SFFT thanks for your efforts, I really appreciate the great work your doing on the d3d side of voodoo drivers !
