Hi everyone,

At last I found newer Voodoolizer (and VoodooXtreme) drivers for Voodoo's. About 1 year ago my favorite drv was Voodoolizer 1.05 - from www.voodoofiles.com (actually from www.x3dfxgamers.de and www.voodooland.org, as I see now).
Amigamerlin drivers don't work very well for me - I have Win ME, Win XP, Barton 2500+, V5 5500 AGP.
Right now I am using Mikepedo driver (beta DX8), it works quite well with many games, even better than x3dfx drivers, but it can't start Gothic - too bad...
I think you guys must have better connection with other 3dfx related sites. It's too sad, especially with the whole situation with 3dfx and Nvidia...
Does anyone have experience with the these drivers? Please, write which drivers works best for you and for what hardware/software!

If the VoodooLizer/Xtreme work for you, so it's fine.
BUT sorry to say here : they are known definitively to be fakkers.

About the Mikepedo, they use an other core (beta) that the x3dx drivers (1.08.04 ?) so you can hope best results indeed.

You have a problem with the Amigamerlin (under XP ?) ? try the SFFT (under Win2k/XP) and give feedback

What's the problem with Gothic ?

Well, I was unable to start Gothic with Mikepedo drivers - it return black screen with "Can't create directx #... object". With x3dfx driver 1.07 (if I remember the version) - from www.voodoofiles.com I can start Gothic without a problem. But it sometimes crashes - if I try to kill a bloodfly or minecrawler, especially if they are more than 1 and I've been hit. Perhaps this is a common problem, because I tried to play with GeForce 5200/5500/5700, Radeon 7000/9000/9600 with simular results. At least, I found that in 640x480 and in Windows 9x/Me the game is more stable, than in XP. With GeForce cards it's more stable also with 32 bit color, with 16 I saw strange items in the inventory!
I read carefully what is written in the forum about x3dfxgamers.de, perhaps it's true. Anyway, with Voodoolizer I have better result in 3D Mark 99,2000,2001, Final Reality... And Raziel 0.9 driver caused too much flickering (as I saw in 3D Analyzer - 3dfx flickering) - as example - Moorhunter XS, XXL, AirXonix 3D. Diablo 2 crashes often, Generals (I found solution in some german site - perhaps www.falconly.de how to start it) also crashes very very often. The same result I had with rampage driver - from www.voodoofiles.com.
I used Mikepedo for 1 year and it workt fine. Right now I am using Voodoolizer 1.06 with Win Me and it's still works perfectly... Maybe these "pirates" changed some files and yet... What driver they stole?

I think it's about time for improving Geometry assist - to be DX8 or DX9 compatible and not so buggy. Some games work very good with this option enabled - they think I have H T&L card. But other don't want to start at all.
This is the main pain of Voodoo cards - lack of Hardware T&L. 3D Analyzer can help sometimes...
What do you think?

- Gothic : seems that the game is a little difficult even with others gfx cards ?
- The VoodooLizers ? AmigaMerlin 3.0, AmigaSport 3.0 and GlideXP.
As said, if they work for you, so it's fine.

Indeed this is a problem but as you say also, 3DAnalyzer can help and helps.
