..yep,definitely an inf bug.I was able to import the opengl/glide settings to the registry manually and voila,3dfx tools work fine again.I have saved everything into two regfixes,if you want to try them out,here they are (note: make sure your settings are stored in the same location as mine,device0 in this case.basic knowledge about registry tweaks is recommended)..

No ground textures are visible, everything is flashing from red to black. I remember it worked better some releases ago, but that must have been before SFFT Alpha 37, this one showed to same behaviour.

Hi,

I tried the same. Sims 2 with SFFT Alpha (40) in Hardware rendering.
There are also the same errors.:
The textures on ground and walls in houses are flickering from black to red.javascript:insertsmilie('')
Angry

After I switch to "force MIP map-dithering" in 3dfx-Tools or vcontrol it seams to be solved. javascript:insertsmilie('')
Smile

It also seams its better to set LOD-Lever a little bit to "better image" than "faster performance"

Now I'm testing the AdOns and looking for more performance...

have you guys tried switching the texture management on/off? the utilities are included in the driver archive (tmon.exe,tmoff.exe)..

Yes,
i tried, but nothing different happens after switching texture management on or off.
But it does not matter.
The Option "force MIP map-dithering" in 3dfx-Tools together with 'sims 2' works fine. Performance could be better.

Can somebody give me a tip to perform better especialy in 'sims 2'? (see *my system*)
Do somebody explain me what exactly tmon.exe and tmoff.exe does?

Thats strange, "force MIP map-dithering" did change nothing here ( I used VControl ). But toggling Texture Management on/off did the trick :

Looks much better than software mode and runs great on a V4 !

Very strange. Perhaps its because of my Voodoo5 instead of your Voodoo4.('')
Question
Which driver do you have installed? SFFT..?

You will probably need to reboot after running TmOn and TmOff for them to take effect.

@ Rene_mastar

I used SFFT Alpha 41 and yes, a reboot is necessary after changing texture management.

Strange!
I run "tmon.exe" and "tmoff.exe", reboot and nothing happens.
Can somebody explain me how exactly "tmon" and "tmoff" works?

Where can I download SFFT Alpha 41?

All links I tried jet (http://www.3dfxzone.it/dir/news/3dfx/sfft_alpha41_voodoo3_4_5/)
are death or are linked back to 3dfxzone.it.

It almost seams that SFFT Alpha 41 is not available anymore?
..I do not hope so..

To Turn Texture Management off run TmOff.exe only and then reboot, then do your testing, if you want to turn texture management back on then run TNON.exe and then reboot. The links to the driver download don't appear to work any more, can someone look at this please.
