Hello, first time poster here. First off I wanted to say I appreciate all the work you guys have done to keep the voodoo spirit alive and kicking. Anyway I've seen a few posts regarding the source code being relased/leaked or whatever. Is this true? And if so, will that really aid in the development of future driver sets offering more/better compatiblity? I'm at a crossroads here and am wondering whether nivida is the way to go. I don't really play a lot of the new games but I was just curious if the features/workarounds found in 3danalyzer i.e. T&L fix and others could be implemented into a set of drivers or a registry fix therefore elimating the need to use both? I think I saw the T&L feature listed in 3dfx tools in one set of drivers but can't remember which. Just curious...

The source code is out and it will help anyone that knows what they are doing. (I don't)

As for T&L, that's done mostly in hardware these days and drivers won't help Voodoo cards with that. I might be wrong but that's what I think...

this is the Geometry Assist : this option emulates the T&L in the driver (with SSE or 3DNow) but only under Win9x or Me and DirX7
