I recently found glide files posted on another site that fixed a lot of problems I was having running the FastVoodoo2 XP v.4.0 Gold driver for my Voodoo 2 cards.

There are actually two glide files, one for those running ATI cards as their primary card, and another for those running Nvidia card as their primary.

After installing the file games that glitched ran smoothly. For instance, Wing Commander Prophecy always ran with graphic artifacts in the radar screen area; these are now gone and I can even run the game in high resolution mode (third party tweak).

I'm sure others would be interested in these files and they could be posted in the FastVoodoo2 XP Gold download page. For now I will give the link to the sites where I found them and I will leave it to the powers that be of this forum to decide if they are worthy of inclusion:

This first link contains driver and card info. and links:
http://www.shifter.sk/helppage/default_fix.htm

This second link contains the glide file downloads:
http://www.shifter.sk/helppage/default_fix.htm

Note: The first link will lead you to other drivers for XP and 98 along with glide patches for these as well.

Happy Gaming,

Archangel

http://www.shifter.sk/helppage/default_fix.htm#SLIdrivers

yes I can: the glide files are not modified by anyone.they are simply the most up to date fully working glides (made by 3dfx) I could find for each type of primary card (after countless tests).the only drawback is that they dont support mismatched voodoo2 SLI,but that can usually be fixed by using koolsmoky's driver..thats all.

Who makes this FastVoodoo2 XP drivers?
Can he make the same driver work with mismatch cards?
It is very difficult to find drivers that worked perfect with XP and DirectX9.

Archangel has been my call sign since the Wing Commander 1 days. I like your choice of avatar, fits well with the name.

I've been using this name since NovaLogic released F-22 Raptor back in 1996 (I think it was 96) Kept flying with Creeping Death from F-22 Raptor through F-16 Multirole Fighter right to F-22 Lightning 3... Too bad NovaLogic abandoned their Flight Sim games for the ground games like Delta Force and DF Black Hawk Down. Their Joint Operations game is not too bad though.
