Does anyone know where the Rampage drivers on Rashlys website came from?

I'm racking my brain, it's been so very long since I've had much of anything to do with our beloved community. I remember getting the drivers from someone on a CD that had been mailed to me, at one point. But just who that person was is well beyond me. I'm trying to remember, but it may just be that Rashly's website was the first and only place to post drivers for Rampage. Although the one detail I do recall is the drivers being some kind of reworked 4500 driver. Single-chip, VSA-100 (or nicknamed "101" as it had been slightly modified) based driver. Meaning the 4500 driver was a better codebase than a 2000 / 3000 driver.

But this is going back almost a decade since I've been brushed up on this stuff, now. I'd literally have to travel a few hours and go through my parents' attic to find all of the old documents, photos, scans, white papers, driver files, etc... but what a collection it was.

Odd as some parts (like the windows help files) indicate they were snatched from Voodoo 3.

I thought that was especially strange when I saw your screenshot above calling it the VoodooX 2000 AGP. I wondered why it would be a Voodoo 2000 based driver, I was certain the card was based on the 4500. I wonder if we could mash together a "new" driver (*gasp* another NuDriver!?) for the Rampage?

Gettin' my blood pumpin' like the good ol' days. :)
