I'm sorry for the error ,i wanted to ask if you are to solve this problem with nfs u 2.Also I'd love if heroes V would run on a voodoo 5 5500.
Here is a benchmark result:

I've discovered something ,maybe you will find it usefull... When I turn on/off the light glow , in nfs u 2 options menu , I can see for a second the car ,then the screen turns back again , like the this black screen covers the screen but the frames are rendered , because i turned on all FSAA 4 samples , minimap dithering and the menu is slower! Maybe I gave you some ideas !

earlier versions of the driver might work. I had the same problem with many programs when I updated to SFFT 39. Try using 38 or 37

Half-Life 2 runs without texture corruption! But I can't say since which driver because it's a long time since I've tested it the last time. Nice work! Now I only want to know why it freezes very often, then I'd be happy ... X-D

Another nice thing: Need for Speed Porsche runs perfectly now. With the Alpha 38 I noticed lack of textures (white surfaces) when driving night courses with lights turned on. €dit: Oh, sorry, it wasn't the driver's fault. The game ran in D3D instead of Glide. D3D is ok, Glide has the bug ...

More to come, I'm testing.

Greetings,
Raff

For anyone reporting rebooting / BSOD problems that they belive are caused by the driver. Can you turn off the automatically restart option in the control panel/system/advanced/startup and recovery section. When the machine BSOD's there should be data displayed on the Blue Screen. If this data identifies the driver causing the BSOD as 3dfxvs.dll or 3dfxvsm.sys can you post all of the number displayed. These would be the stop code the arguments in brackets after it, the Base address of the module and the address that caused the fault. Can you also specify which version of the driver that you are testing with. you will need to manually restart the driver after a crash, as the machine will sit at the blue screen forever if you leave it alone.

Well, I have auto reboot disabled ... but there are no BSOD's! Playing LFS 2 with 4xAA (Alpha 39) produces a blackscreen on my PC. The GPU crashes and Windows XP resets it ... unsuccessfully (= I can confirm the problem). Same crap when playing HL2 ... freeze, no matter what AA enabled.

CombatMan specifically what problems are you claiming are in the alpha 39 that aren't in the alpha 38. Kindly list them. I can't tell what you are referring to from your posts.

It wold be nice if in the near future the sfft drivers could be made compatible with xp media center. Also some extensions for media center would be great !

I tested Half-Life 2 : Episode 1 with SFFT Alpha 36,37,38,39 :
Main Menu works fine, but after starting a game the screen goes black. Sound is playing but you can see nothing, just the same as in NFSU2.

That "blackscreen" phenomenon is quite common in newer games. F.E.A.R. shows the problem too (on a Kyro 2 as well, btw). And another game, if I recall correctly ... Serious Sam 2. Is it maybe the same problem that needs to be fixed once ... and all games coul run? =)
