Hi I have FPS problem with counter strike. My fps was between 5-15 and after optimizing amiga merlin 2.5se (instructions from this forum) I have about 10-25. The problem is not 25fps but 10 is too slow. I tried everything fps_max 50 & 99.
With open gl (3dfx minidriver) with d3d i got only abot 5-12fps and default opengl abot 8-15fps. I dont know were to place glidewraper from amigamerlin package. I have place it into half life /gldrv
but it doesnt help

I have 733mhz 512mb sdram
Win xp sp1
wirless internet connection
Voodoo 3 3000 pci

did you try ?
"In the "Video Modes" option in Counter-Strike's "Configuration" section you should select OpenGL and then select "Mini Driver" from the small tab at the left side of the screen. Then lower the screen resolution to 800x600"

DopeJam, lets put it this way:

I used to play Halflife/Counterstrike in my P3 450... with a voodoo3 3000
i had 128 megs of ram... 6gb of disc space. and i played it at 1024x768 16-bit max detail.

FPS where always around 30... always.

YOu must have a problem with you config.
BTW, you say you have low fps only in on-line game, or even in a little bot match?
Check you bios settings, there are sites that explain how to tweak you BIOS (without overclock) to allow the max performance of the V3...

DopeJam,
I'm sorry to hear you are having so many problems but you know the Voodoo3 wasn't meant to run on a system with WinXP on it.

Did you try loading DirectX 9.0b
http://www.microsoft.com/windows/directx/default.aspx

Are you sure you have your BIOS set correctly? You have "video shadow" off? I know there are a few other things you have to have set to "off" or "disabled" too for your Voodoo card to run correctly.

I have directx 8.1.....should I download 9.0b???
Yes, the same problem with bots.
I cant find shadowing in my bios.
I found this on a site what I have to set off:
Hidden refresh - cant find in my bios
Byte merge - cant find
VGA palette snoop - emmm cant find
DAC snoop & any Caching/Shadowing - I have only internal caching

What motherboard do you have?

I think you should download DX9.0b and use it.
Since DirectX is backwards compatible, it could only help.
I run Counter Strike on a PIII 933 w/256Mb RAM and a Voodoo3 3000 without a problem. That system is running WinME though.

i'm sceptic with DX9.0b, CS is not really new
seems to that the problem is "elsewhere"

I'm telling him to use DX9.0b because he is running WinXP, not because of CS. The problem is probably WinXP and the Voodoo drivers, not the game.
