Is it about SLI? Have you tried with different PCI slots? I've also noticed that different V2 models behave in various ways on my rig in SLI mode, for example the Amax 12MB works with my Guillemot Maxigamer3D 12MB flawlessly while the same Guillemot aka EON Electronics with the Volcano2 12MB makes either my soundcard disappearing or the HDD not waking up.

:o, nice job on the drivers Geri.

I installed them with my two Voodoo 2s (Diamond Monster 3DII specifically, 12mb) in SLI and it works. They're now reconized as display adapters. I havn't had a chance to test direct3d yet, but OpenGL and Glide work. The Voodoo2.exe configure file is nice too..

Specs:
Windows XP
AMD Athlon 64 3200 Clawhammer
Asus K8V Deluxe
2x 512mb RAM
Radeon 9800XT

Yeah, Direct3D and such work..the only thing is that in my SLI setup, when it switches to D3D mode it outputs on the other Voodoo 2 card, since I have dual monitors I can work around this without having to switch cables..but is this suppose to happen?

Connect the two Voodoo2 with SLI cable too, and it will work!

So connect thee two card with the passtrough cable, and the voodoo to the 2d card too, and may no problem happend using two voodoo2 in sli with my driver in direct3d!

But i think the direct3d in sli not yet work...
Sombody test it pls with two and one voodoo2 in direct3d... if it faster, the d3d work with sli... if not, the the sli not work yet with direct3d, only one voodoo2 will be affected with d3d...

But the d3d works :)

ok,tested the driver on my v2 SLI,here goes:

-SLI in d3d doesnt work.only one card is used.anyway,having D3D is great succes.
-when I loaded the driver on both cards,the driver stopped working completely.I had to install it only for the primary voodoo2 card to get it working.strangely,SLI in glide works even if there is no driver installed for t he second voodoo2
-the driver has no uninstaller (or I was not able to find it).I forgot to back up the registry and I spent half a hour cleaning my registry.
-the driver is way too complicated.too many options,too many stuff.I would suggest you make the next release as simple as possible,that means glide/3dfx opengl and direct3d,nothing else.no control panel,no additional files (perhaps reg entries to modify refresh rates-just like fastvoodoo2).simplier driver=easy to use,easy to work with.

overall: good job,the driver has great potential,but needs lot of work.

why toggling the advanced options? I think tahat could be useful for a skilled user..to hide the options with a button should be the right idea!

No, actually it happens even only a single V2 is present...
it have conflicts with other devices (for memory address or io address, forgotten), but as my board is from Acer, so i can't change it neither in WinXP nor the BIOS about sharing the resources..
(That board is a crap..i can't even use the 2nd IDE Channel as it have conflict with other devices in IRQ..how weird..)
