Hi, im new in this forum.
here and today i found how to connect voodoo2 in sli(mismatched).1 hour of work with sli cable:)) Koolsmokys drivers work just fine with unreal (1024x768res). But with Ultima 9 its strange: it works, but my monitor view divides in 2 and i see same picture in each:)) what a ****?

One Question,
How do you tweak it since the tweak screen no longer shows up in display properties on the tabs?
I need to limit texture mem to 2 MB for Red Baron 3D.
Thanks

any landing you can walk away from is a good one, but a great one means you can re-use the airplane!

create a txt file in your red baron folder,edit it with notepad and type:

set FX_GLIDE_TMU_MEMSIZE=2
xxx.exe

save and exit (xxx.exe is your red baron executable),rename the file to run.bat and launch it (your system MUST be configured to view file extensions!).thats it..

Ok, should we set FX_GLIDE_NO_DITHER_SUB to 1 or 0 ?

depends,see this:

FX_GLIDE_NO_DITHER_SUB=0



FX_GLIDE_NO_DITHER_SUB=1


some games look better with dither enabled,others do not..this was Wheel of Time

you should try SSTV2_VIDEO_24BPP=1,it improves the IQ quite a bit,but its not compatible with SLI.

you can try to use koolsmoky's glides (if you aren't running them already),they force a different way of dithering,and some games really like it (quake3 looks particularly good,especially when combined with SSTV2_VIDEO_24BPP=1)

Thanks for the clarification ps47. I'm already using koolsmoky's glides. Tried Q3, smoke and blood puffs looking great.
Still like my V3 better though

I removed the old driver, installed the new one and once again - the "mapmem returned an error..." message appeared. I'm testing with the system in my signature. The only thing different is that the CPU is underclocked to 1.53 MHz - 1800+, but this doesn't matter, I guess.
I tried starting some 3dfx demos, NFS, Quake 3 and nothing. I can't get it working.

I was getting the same error with the old version (15.1.2005, I think) and the only sollution I've found was: disable the Radeon from device manager, insert an old S3 Virge DX board, start a glide application, restart, remove the S3 (from the computer), re-enable the Radeon and everything is fine until the next time.
Sometimes it magicaly fixed itself when the PC was restared, but I have no luck with the new driver and since I don't have the S3 anymore, I can't try to trick the PC, unfortunately.

Will there be a fix for this error anytime soon ?

The Radeon is stepping on the space that the V2 uses. I can provide a fix, but cannot make any promises on a release date. The workaround for Radeon has to be done in the miniport driver. Glide2x.dll and glide3x.dll have nothing to do with this and have no problem.

Well, If you know where the cause of the problem lies, that's perfect - I can wait until it's done. I don't have a choice, do I ?
Thanks in advance !

I gave my new obsidian2 200SBi a quick spin nad the card is running smooth as butter,tested hitman1 (glide3x),incubation (glide2x) and q3 arena (glide2x via wickedgl minigl),everything running fine and looking better than ever (especialy fog in hitman1,yumm) :D

edit: the new memory mapper still causes BSODs from time to time,see attachment.no problem with the original 3dfx memory mapper (not sure about port mapper).

Hello ps47, I'm have exactly this same error:
"The Voodoo2 Board Remapper service failed to start due to the following error: The system cannot find the file specified."

--> how to fix it? How to "load the original 3dfx memory mapper"? What is this?

Thanks!
