Well the desktop size is correct as the regular icons that are regularly on top are in their correct places. The bottom 3/4 is black except that I can only see the shortcut symbols on my bottom icons. It just isn't drawing the icons themselves or the taskbar. If I open the "My computer" icon and then it cascades I can only see four choices, upto "scan for viruses". When I close it I can then see what was on the bottom part, such as "create shortcut" but part of the word just stays there. Hope you understand. I'll try it again and see what I can do.

I gather the Alpha 21 is online, this should fix the desktop problems in the alpha 20, and also fix the BSOD in Vietcong.

Tried the new SFFT Alpha 21 and my desktop is working again. Vietcong seems to be working correctly w/Auto Mip-Map enabled at 800 x 600. Although it did BSOD once out of five times, but probably because when I tried it at 1024 x 768 it BSOD at the loading bar. After I restarted it worked again at 800 x 600.
So, it still BSOD at 1024 x 768 everytime w/Auto Mip-Map enabled and it still freezes duirng parts of the game where there are a lot of flames around.

Don't know if you get tired of hearing this SFFT, but thanks and keep up the good work.
Just incredible what you are doing.

It is worth posting the details of the BSOD i.e the STOP : XX and the address and paramenters if they are related to 3dfxvs.dll. I have managed to work out how to decipher where in the driver it fails and this can help debugging. Sometimes you just need to guard against crap data being sent down by the application. I have tested Vietcong, just the game, it seems to work on V4/5 but freezes on a V3.

SFFT, hello. I always admire your wonderful work with the drivers. I just wonder if you can, in the future, make a patch that helps voodoo3 cards run the game "enclave". i used it with the ssft19 driver and 3danalyzer but got no results. just keep it in mind. many thanks and keep up the brilliant work

this game uses the winning eleven 7 international'S (similar) engine ...
i tried that game in both a v3 and a v4.
in a v3 looks like your captures (transparent players)
and in a v4 (and 5) looks OK

I am very impressed by the SFFT21 drivers. I have three words for you,

Awesome! Awesome! Awesome!

With Ghost Recon everything is perfect, good definition and performance. Even the Flight sim game, the graphics are great with good performance. It also has made changes how the kneeboard displays. With 2 sample AA the screen flash is not as bad as before and the kneeboard when first open shows normally then the frame quickly comes black. The data in the kneeboard shows correctly and as I pass my mouse curser over the control buttons they (the buttons) start to show.

I am not sure you should call these Alpha drivers. Beta may be the proper term.

I have not finished testing the drivers with fast AA and single chip; I shall do this in the next few days.

Ok I have finished checking the SFFT21 drivers and have found that with the settings in single chip my PC crashes the moment I opened the kneeboard. With past drivers this never happened the kneeboard functioned properly.

Stop 0X0000001E (0XC0000005, 0XBB7AD01A, 0X00000000, 0X08AF7364)
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLE
Address BB7AD01A base at BB75B000 date stamp 41d1fb01 3dfxvs.dll

After restart I set it to fast performance and I got a PC crash as soon as I opened the kneeboard.

Stop 0X0000001E (0XC0000005, 0XBB7AD01A, 0X00000000, 0X08844384)
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLE
Address BB7AD01A base at BB75B000 date stamp 41d1fb01 3dfxvs.dll

I restarted again and went back to 2AA where the drivers worked fine before. As soon as I opened the kneeboard the PC crashed again.
I then reinstalled the drivers and everything was OK again. I went on to test again with fast performance and found that the PC was not crashing. The first crash messed up the installation of the drivers.
In fast performance the problem is that when I opened the kneeboard the frame rates are destroyed to the point that the game plays like a slide show.

So to conclude in
1. Fast the frame rates a poor with kneeboard opened.
2. 2AA the sim plays well except for the way the kneeboard displays
3. single chip the sim does not function.
