Well, it does ... but a black screen only with visible map and tacho sucks if you want to win some races.

But NFSU 1 and Most Wanted run.

I have one question - is there any way of SFFT or someone else, that perhaps would help him, could implement (improve) some form of hidden surface removal (not at all necessarily configurable) for Voodoo cards?
Because the sheer fillrate required in the modern games (e.g. Quake4) is killing them...

Is there anyone that helps SFFT or is he on his own?
What about all the neat projects that were active some years ago like Glide_XP and all the drivers from other people like Mikepedo, x3dfx,...couldn't those people all join SFFT's great efforts?

(I'm really interested about that HSR because it's the only sure way to really boost performance...)

Ok. I've downloaded the new SFFT Drivers, and it's working fine. I'm still not tested games.
However, what that exe's does? (Set3Tile.exe; Set4Tile.exe; SetDX7Mode.exe; SetDX8Mode.exe; TmOff.exe; TmOn.exe) This files comes with previous driver releases, but, what it does?
Especially what TmOff/on does?
Thank's! I'm going to test some games now... =]

Nice new driver, SFFT!
MIP-mapping in World of Warcraft, FlatOut 2 and TrackMania Sunrise works again! But max. AA (4x on V5 5500 and 8x on 6000) still causes freezes in the last two games ... And in Dungeon Siege 2 are still cursor errors when in SLI. I'm still testing.

@ interterranhp:

I don't know exactly what texture management does (I've asked that some months before, too), but I can tell you that it can cause texture corruption when enabled. The Gothic series is such a case. TM Off + reboot solves the problem.

The driver is working fine!
I tested with this games:

Unreal Tournament
Unreal: (all the series... NaPali, Awakening, etc...)
FlatOut runs fine, with Amigamerlin drivers sometimes the game crashes...
Counter-Strike both 1.5 and 1.6
Quake III
Quake III: Team Arena
SimCity 4

UT2003 still not playable here... the error is the same...
--

Video: 3dfx Voodoo Series (Amigamerlin 3.1 R11 gave the same error...)

Your graphics card is not supported - please consult the FAQ

History: CheckDeviceCaps <- UD3DRenderDevice::Init <- UGameEngine::Init <- InitEngine

--

But, there's a game that never runs on SFFT drivers: Grand Prix 3, known as GP3..
the error is the same, too: 3dfxvm.dll (BSOD)

Thank's Raff3DC for the explanation!

Bye!

Hm, UT2004 runs fine on my machine ...

SFFT, another bug that exists for some time now: Live for Speed S2 crashes with a BSOD when enabling 4x AA on a V5 5500 (and 8x on 6000 I think, but I've not tested this yet). Knowing the other max-AA-problems in FlatOut 2 and TrackMania Sunrise I wonder if it's just one bug that concerns all these games? Seems to be an SLI error ...

Raff

lol... i don't know...

My UT2003 is different than the others... the menu, etc...
mine don't have any type of benchmark (flyby, etc..)...

Maybe it's a 'alternative' version?? i dunno why it's different.

My UT2003 style menu: http://unrealextreme.de/_mygamesite/mgs.pages/ut2k3base/index.php?mod=gameinfo&action=show&id=1
The 'normal' UT2003 style menu: http://chaotic.beyondunreal.com/docs/images_2k3/menu_keybinds.jpg

I 'haved' the UT2003 'normal' demo, and it's come with benchmark's, etc... and it runs in my K6-2 and this Voodoo5 5500 pci... so, i bought the UT2003 and it gave to me that error... and it not come with 'benchmark's', etc...

Well... FlatOut is running very fine!

Thank's

Lol? That's not UT2003 ... are you sure you're not playing any "illegal" alpha, beta version or something? The logo ("UT 2") is weird, too ...

@ all

Please post more details when experiencing a BSOD, especially the error codes. SFFT may use this information.

Impossible. The errors when using max. AA make the BSOD look like if you have done too much memory oc ... no visible letters.
