Hi!
In Conflict:Freespace i have the problem that while beeing in the menus, the game ist seriously stuttering. While flying and fighting around in space there are no problems an i have at least 40 frames.

Then i've testet other drivers:
Voodoo2(TM) Based 3D Accelerators Driver TEST Kit for Win2K/XP

No stuttering in the menus, but the game crashes back to desktop when starting a mission.

Then i replaced the glide2 and 3 *.dll in the system32-directory with the ones from the FastVoodoodriver-package...
And now there is no stuttering in the menus AND i can play every mission!

The SLI-Mode seems to work also! At least the donut-demo runs in 1024x768!

What TEST kit do you exactly mean? Bringing the version mumber would be appreciate. Also, the SLI you mentioned working - is that with identical, or "misplaced" boards? I have two non-identical OEMs in my rig, SLI works under Win98/FV2 4.6, but no-go under WinXP (black screen). RGS-Ent.

I don't remember from where i've downloaded them since i've downloaded so many different drivers. But the readme refers to 3dfxzone and it seems to be quite new: 12/12/2004
And the drivers release in the readme says:
Glide2 Driver Version: Sourceforge 2.53.0.1638 (beta)
Glide3 Driver Version: Sourceforge 3.1.0.1638 (beta)
Voodoo Graphics Memory Mapper Version: 4.3.0.1099 (beta)
Voodoo Graphics Port Mapper Version: 4.3.0.1098

I have two identical boards (DiamondMonster 12 MB) with different revisions (A and B, don't know this matters).

and similar SLI boards MUST have the following set.

SSTV2_FT_CLKDEL = 5
SSTV2_TF0_CLKDEL = 7
SSTV2_TF1_CLKDEL = 7
SSTV2_TF2_CLKDEL = 7
SSTV2_SLIM_VIN_CLKDEL = 3
SSTV2_SLIM_VOUT_CLKDEL = 2
SSTV2_SLIS_VIN_CLKDEL = 3
SSTV2_SLIS_VOUT_CLKDEL = 2
SSTV2_GRXCLK = 90

Please post feedbacks to the V2 section of the 3dfxzone forums at

Enjoy,

So i assume you are using the latest KoolSmoky's set for unhappy Obsidian owners. I gave'em a try and they work, but only with SSTV2_IGNORE_SLI_CHECK "1" merged into registry environment. Interesting thing, they produce much better picture than win9x ones, both for gamma/contrast level and filtering/dithering quality it seems.
(Or they're just darker)
