For some reason in certain games such as combat flight simulator and my sisters 2D games are affected such as dora the explorer and blues clues but all else displayed fine. Weird.

Combatman, do you mean Microsoft combat flight simulator, if so which one. What versions of the drivers have problems, and what version don't. Can you describe the problem in a bit more detail, is it just graphic corruption, what card are you using.

Hi all,

I tried Pro Evolution Soccer 5 with my V5 using Sfft alpha 39 driver, and the result was impressive. Here is the summary :

-In 800x600, Medium details, Full screen: the screen is cut on the right and the game/Intros are very slow.

-In 800x600, Low details, Full screen: the screen is correct, the game/Intros speed/performances are good (I think that it is possible to improve performances by using Vcontrol, I didn't try it), I didn't notice any graphic/textures corruptions in both game and Intros. There is only a smal thing that I have noticed, I am going to explain that with images, but before that I start with the best:







Another one
here


The only problem is that in some cases of Intros (before or after the part...ect), The screen is too dark (some times it blinks between dark and clear, or some textures are dark and other clear) like that:



or this

My system: GA-8SMML Motherboard, P4 1.7Ghz, 256MB SDRAM, Voodoo5 5500 AGP, Win XP Pro.

SFFT a39
Voodoo 3300
n-force 4 ultra
athlon 3200+
Windows x64

Direct 3D:
Very well supported, Need for speed 2000 plays fantastic, Sonic Heroes have minor problems (I think that the textures bigger than 256x256)



UT is playing ok in 1024x1024... but when I put it on windowed mode, it becomes slow and have some bug's (off screen)

OBS: The desktop is seted in 16bpp

Open GL
Really, Really bad.. too slow, i've tryed to do something on Valve Hammer Editor, but no way. Very slow :(.

Glide
No support yet, I think.. What is the problem with glide? You would need to rewrite it for a 64bit compatibility?

it's really good for those first alpha realeses! Keep the good work man!

Glide and OpenGL aren't SFFT's "realm". He's working on the D3D core.

I tried PES5 using "2 Sample Anti-Aliasing" (3dfx Tools), but the result is the same. Except that the game slowed down.

I noticed lately that Sometimes I have a little lag during the game Intro. (the screen look is like cut horizontally, and there is a lag between the two parts of the screen).

My system: GA-8SMML Motherboard, P4 1.7Ghz, 256MB SDRAM, Voodoo5 5500 AGP, Win XP Pro.

road reflections is a pixel shader based effect so it can't be enabled with a voodoo5

Tried PES5 with sfft 39 but the game exits
to the desktop when i enter a match.
The menus and options play ok, but when is
to render the 3D it exits.

It maybe cause i have patched the game
with Superpatch 3.0

But... I tried to run through 3D-Analyze 2.36
and it ran OK! Used the same settings that in3d:
low @ 800x600...
medium gives the same cut screen to the right
low @ 640x480 gives cut screen at the bottom

SFFT,

could you tell me/us why the AAlchemy 8164 isn't compatible with "normal" D3D drivers? Well, it's huge ... but the card is still VSA-100-SLI-based. Which driver changes would have to be done to get it working under WinXP? I'm just curious.

Greetings,
Raff

the slowish issue with ZsnesW is gone
with Alpha39.

Keep up!
