so SFFT, does it mean that the Driver won´t ever work on vista?

I´m using Vista x86 RTM (the latest version so far), and i tried the SFFT alpha 42 (the latest version so far, too). and only the Amigamerlin Driver got my card working. but now i can´t play World of Warcraft. I had to let XP onb the other hard disc to play it.

Couldn´t you give it a look and maybe develop a new version of the driver to work under vista?

"Yeah" indeed.
6k users: Is the "SLI f*ckup" in high resolutions gone? Unfortunately I'm not able to test 'cause my 6k is ... in repair. But I'll check it with my 5500.

Just start a D3D game like Max Payne 2, Dungeon Siege 2 or NFS 5 and set 1600x1200. Max is the best example: In 1024x768 absolutely fluent gameplay ... but in 1152 and above it's just a slide-show. My tests indicate that a V4 4500 AGP is faster then ...

4x AA works again in FlatOut 1/2 and TrackMania Sunrise on V5 5500! No freezing anymore. But LFS S2 Alpha (newest demo version) still won't start ...

Okay,

Well done, SFFT !

Final Fantasy 8 is also working as well.

Bad news :
The SLI-Bug is still there, Max Payne 2 is VERY slow in 1600x1200, seems it is running in single-chip-mode.

If you are running Unreal Tournament 2003 or 2004, there is a hack in the Alpha 43 driver to fix the palette corruption on returning to the desktop after running these games.
You need to add a registry key to the driver registry branch settings. The driver key is called EnableUT2KHack and is a dword key. The value of the key should be set to a non-zero value.
You can find the driver registry key branch by searching for a key called MaxTileBuffers and checking to see whether running Set3Tile.exe and Set4Tile.exe change the value of the key, you will need to refresh the display in regedit to detect the changes. if they change the value of the key then the key is in the driver registry
key branch. Setting a zero value for this key disables the Hack.

The real bad thing is that it's running even slower.

Hm. I've never had such a problem. But it seems to me that the "driving" letters in the main menu are fixed now ... no corruption anymore But I don't know whether it was Alpha 43 or already earlier ...
