hum, "a hoax/driver-mixing-team" i don't know but if the driver works, so this is a good thing

seems to me that all the drivers are (i think and i hope) compatible with DirX9 or 8, because these Api's are backwards compatible (in theory), in this case a game (by e.g) can run with some visual defects... the problem can be if some games depend of a driver having support for a DirX feature...

Tnx for signaling, however...

hehe... well, i posted the performance test on the voodooalert forums, but i think i have to do them again.... directx diagnosis failed, so i guess i'm having the same problem with installing as with the 3dhq beta drivers.
will do it again this afternoon.

if a game requires a specific feautures, a driver can ignore or software emulate it right? like 3d-analyzer?

right with 3D Analyzer (like the T@L) but this utility must support the feature and i think that it can't all realize
i tested MS Rally Sport Challenge (needed 3D Analyzer because of T@L) but trust me, this was really hard because the drivers tried were not "appropriate"

I don't think they are new drivers. They look like a re-mix of the 3Dhq drivers with kooksmoky's glide files. Those driver files are on voodoofiles.com too.

Actually, those drivers are older than I thought, even though some of the files are marked year 2008.

lo, Arch, 2003 would sound better. But driverwise, untill Amiga's new drivers come out, I'd say stick with the 3dhq Beta 10's.
