I want to add that I thought it may be a memory problem because it crashed when I changed views. The (KMODE EXCEPTION ERROR) is it not because the program is looking for a file that is no longer there?

@SFFT,

I reinstalled Halflife 2 on my 5500 system (Athlon 2400 & 512 mb ram)and tryed it again with the alpha 27, its a bit subjective, but I do not believe it showed any real improvement for the fps. To many situations in the game that the fps go into single digits, this does not make for enjoyable game play.

Realisticaly a voodoo 5500 just does'nt have enough memory and fillrate to play these new games.

I was able to get Rayman 3 working with 2xAA with the alpha 27 which would'nt seem to work with the alpha 24

Most of the games that I test remains the same or vary less than 1%.
I measure a 2% decrease in Unreal Tournament (d3d mode, demoplay worstcase, I run the test 3 times and pick up the fastest one)

2% can be random, that's why I wrote very small decrease.... I can test again on the weekend (take some time because I disable some services and startup programs to reduce the exogenous factors)

Saludos

Stp 0x0000001E (0X00000005, 0XF2F3AE95, 0X00000000, 0X238C4044)
KMODE_EXCEPTION_NOT_HANDLED address F2F3AE95 base at F2EF1000 date stamp 425cla12 3dfxvs.dll

Is this cause because there was a memory problem?



The second time I attempt a long flight with flight simulator I got another BSOD pointing to the 3dfxvs.dll.

FBS the next time you get a BSOD, can you note the details, the first one for the Alpah 27 wasn't usefull, but that doesn't mean the next one won't be.
