Yeh, but Mesa was included until the Alpha 27, so I was wondering. I know the focus is on Direct3D, but that's no reason to make a step back, don't you think? :-)

The voodoo3 driver uses the glide and opengl files from Amigersport 3, tyhe last Amigersport release for the V3. There are later files for the V5 because there have been later Amigermerlin releases for the V5.

Now I'm confused. X-D
Seems to be my mistake. In the past I've installed Alpha 25 and thought it to be the V3 version. But after some benchmarking I noticed that MesaFX was used. But how come? It seems that I've used the V5 driver on my V3 -- and it ran better than ever in OGL. So: Why don't you put Mesa into the V3 package? :D

Raff3DC: sfft is developing only 2 files 3dfxvs.dll and 3dfxvsm.sys (which are the direct3d drivers), other files do not change from version to version (original 3dfx ones are mostly used). Why not put mesafx here? Because SFFT is developing Direct3D drivers and these alphas are not final product but ment ONLY for Direct3D testing.
Because of this if you want driver for general usage you should take these two files from sfft drivers, put them in latest amigamerlin drivers which is a final product and ment for general usage.

for example. AM3.1 r11 contains alpha29 , that it has a quite stable d3d core :)
(it was tested a lot by the (beta)testers.)

i guess, this the best selection: alpha test with SFFT 30 series, and then release an AM3.1 Release X (with a nice d3d (stable / rock solid ) core )

Hmm ...
Try a reinstall of the driver. My Voodoo3 runs fine with UT, the Voodoo5 too.
