The voodoo5 is not on the pc right now to test a33.

Please SFFT optimalize your driver to NFS MW I think its very useful for all V5/V4 users.

The VoodooLites OpenGl control panel problems appear to be a bug in MesaFX, it works fine with the 3dfx opengl dll with the latest driver.

SFFT, here are the results :

Alpha 33 : 1715 3DMarks
Alpha 32 : 1866 3DMarks

Alpha 33 : 1714 3DMarks (Texture Management Disabled)

BTW, with Texture Management Disabled Gothic runs without errors and does not BSOD when exiting.

Rolo1 do you know how the write back cache is set up on your P4 motherboard. I presumed that the BSOD and texture corruption was down to the texture management.

I use sfft Alfa 33(and 3dfxtools) with voodoo5 5500 agp winXP. I am at third day of test and there are not erreurs messages appears when I work in win OS system or with 3d games (WarcraftIII) and I found a new option:its possible now to play with 32bit good, exept some slowing when there are too many effects in the game (that can be that because I have only 256Mb of SDRAM ) but I can say that I have play more than 2 hours without bug and is too much beter than hold driver versions.
I have another question :it is important to update
the BIOS version(I have 1.06 version).if it's true what is the best version
thank you for all and good continuation

Write caching tends to be a setup option in the BIOS if it is configurable at all.

hi all,and thenks again to Ps47 for precisions. I hope that you spoke about craphic card BIOS (and not of motherboard BIOS).
Good,I tried in this days sfft alpha33 combined with latest 3dfxtools(other possibility :VControl) and in this moment there are not major problemes(I have v5 5500AGP Win XP), exept some slowing in my 3d game(WarcraftIII). but I wanted to know :
- someone can explain me how to know if the game use Direct3d or OpenGL/Glide
And thenks for ALL.

Thenks Ps47, I learned many things of this sites.
It is neseccary to say also, that is not very clear how to install correctely the latest sfft driver because there are allways the problem of registery keys(3dfxvs)especially when you have the Win XP driver and you want to install sfft.
I have proceed as follow:
1-install the sfft driver using administrator of peripheral in material page and reboot.
2-Suppress the registery folder(3dfxvs) and reboot.
3-Now you notice that are yello exclamation point in the graphic card in administrator of peripheral,I think that is a good sign .(I didn't try the point 2 while having win XP standard VGA driver, it's possible that work also).
4-Reinstall the Sfft driver as in first and reboot.
I have notice that if yu install 3dfxtools after you have not messages appear during instalation(do you whant to replace this file with this....).
OK I have say what I had to say.
thenks for all aditonel precisions.

In Delta Force 2 (D3D Mode) you can see through the terrain. The weapon is not visible.

SFFT,
sorry, but I could not find any information about the setup of the write-back-cache on my mainboard. Nothing in BIOS or manual. Google did not help, either.
