also id just like to ask in ut2004 the wrighting at the menu screen (UV PROBABLY BROUGHT THIS UP IN THE PAST) is mashed like mixed textures instead of flowting text wonder why this is?.

Also is there going to be a fix for pain killer as we have to use 3d analizer to launch the full game?.

Ok this will be that last post till responce for now so the d3d core the problem that iv picked up on and this is the main prob is that if the clipping distance in a game is far ,very far (for instance u can see for miles )the game will be sluggish hsr (Hidden surface removal) could help assist this and make games faster whats your views on this guys because it was removed from tools?.

Wrong link! If someone is trying to download V4/5 version of alpha 20 - http://www.3dfxzone.it/files/download/video/3dfx/sfft/sfftalpha30.zip (this is the correct).

Else - you will download only V3 version.

voodoo5 is an incredible card: the only card i know that makes games faster with AA enabled




Uhm, yes I also recognized the AA problem. I'm wondering if 4xAA has to be active on a V5 6000 to run gta-sa properly ?-)
BTW: If you don't emulate pixelshadercaps, the car shading seems to be better. Try it out...

I'm still trying to figuring out, how to prevent gta-sa from crashing when going to advanced options, and i found a way (but the resolution sticks @ 640x480):

x) You need a 2 graphics card configuration.
x) start gta-sa with your voodoo5 goto options menu, mouse cursor at advanced options, but don't click on it ;-)
x) Alt-Tab to your windows. Goto display options, and choose the second (gta-sa compatible) card, and deactivate your voodoo.
x) switch back to gta-sa, screen will be black or flickering, but anyway click on your left mouse button (or enter). (cursor should still be on advanced options)
x) gta-sa does wether crash nor display anything but now its possible to switch back to your voodoo and choose the advanced options (even @ further game sessions!)
x) Alas, the resolution now sticks @ 640x480 16/32 bit (until you delete your gta_sa.set file), which is'nt necessarily an enhancement to the situation before...

tested sfft alpha30 (with am 3.1 r11):
* FinalFantasy VIII - same as a29, objects (fonts, etc) still aren't transparent (black background).
* 3DMark2001 - still some glitches in game1 high test.
* World of Warcraft - runs acceptable, some texture problems (no blending).
