SFFT24 or SFFT25 sounds about right. Any idea why I am having crashes relating to the 3dfxvs.dll?

The BSOD that you posted doesn't tell me a lot. Can you pin down the version that it started with. There seem to be at least two separate problems.

@SFFT

fisrt i need to congratulate you for the job with the SFFT Alpha drivers, really good job....

Now a problem to you...

I use my voodoo 5 5500 AGP, with the Amiga 3.1R6, and i play a lot of America's Army, with the amiga no problems with hours of game..

with the SFFT i have this critical error message:

"No Label

OS: Windows XP 5.1 (Build: 2600)
CPU: AuthenticAMD PentiumPro-class processor @ 2330 MHz with 511MB RAM
Video: 3dfx Voodoo Series (242)

You have triggered a bug in the DirectX 8.1 runtime. Please install DirectX 8.1b (or later) for a fix. See Release Notes for instructions on how to obtain it."


i need to say that have more FPS and better game quality with the FSSA but after some time this window open.

This game is based under the UT2003 or 2004 (i am not sure) engine.

Thanks and congratulations,

I presume that you are using the Alpha 26. I would suggest that you revert to Amigermerlin 3.1 R6 as there seem to be a couple of problems with the Alpha 26.

@Pulsus

i tried America's Army with both amigamerlin r6 and sfft alpha26 but i had always the same problem:
with every detail and resolution the fps didn't grow over 13

how much fps do you do? what graphic options do you use?

do you mean that with fsaa enabled you make more fps?

yes, i was using the SFFT Alpha 26, i ma back with the Amiga 3.1R6..

@Benna

the FPS depends of the map, i used play the Pipeline and SF Hospital.

Pipeline i can get more than 30FPS in close places, but in SF Hospital in Open places i get max of 14FPS.....

i plays @ 1024x768, lower resolution and all advanced video options off...

About the FSSA i need to say i am sorry, i want to say SFFT...

What rig you have????

@Pulsus

from now i tried only in the shooting range
at 640x480 all details set to ultra low and all advanced effects off i make 14 fps facing the officer and 25 facing the hummers
at 1024x768 all details set to ultra high and all advanced effects on with FSAA 4x i make 9 fps facing the officer and 14 facing the hummers
very tiny difference!
i'm going to try in another map

@benna

i don't now about the tests to start to play because i have a Radeon 9000pro when i make this tests, i just will try now and post here....

But i need to say that i am impressed with the performance of my voodoo on this game, almost the same as the Radeon

I am just sad about the performance of the voodoo with filters, if i try to play Quake 3 with 2x FSSA the fps drops to 30 or less, what i can do???

what's your system?
with my pc quake3 arena at 1024x768 max quality runs a timedemo in 19 secs (about 60fps) and with fsaa 4x makes (i'm not completely sure: i tried long time ago) about 30fps

i made a timedemo with q3a and i had 30fps with fsaa 4x at 1024x768x16
enabling 32bit falls to 9 fps
i think your 30fps are normal... try with 16bit: the difference is minimal (thanks our 3dfx)

I have tried SFFT A26 with half-life2 demo,the game runs great,but I cant change any advanced graphics options,as soon as I hit apply,the game crashes to desktop with no error message.that means I cant lower the details to get better FPS,because I'm stuck at "medium" detail.I'm using athlonxp 3000/voodoo4PCI..

to run a timedemo in q3a you must open the console (~ key in us keyboard) and type "timedemo 1", then exit the console with the same key and run a demo (go to main menu then demo menu)
when the demo finish reopen the console and read the results
