Dear All,
Just wondering, is there a software can use V2 to play dvd?
( cause my 4mb on board vga has bad quality with DVD movie, and I give up trying my old realmagic hollywood1 -em7210, I think, since I can't find the right software to play dvd although I got the working driver.)

Any suggestion?

Thank you very much!!!

Start the DVD player software with the d3d lancher.

In XP is a way to do it.

first install this driver:
http://voodoomage.uw.hu/lgfx_voodoomage2_xp_2_2_0.rar

Extract it.
Right click to main computer, propertipes, device manager.
Rightclick on the voodoo device, refresh driver, and add the lgfx driver to the voodoo.
Press escape, or enter to exit from the intro.
Click ">>>" button to finalize the installation.
Now restart computer.

At next restart you will see a Voodoo2 icon in the desktop.
Start it, and go to save and exit.

Now find any DVD player, go the directory of the dvd player, and drag'n drop the dvd player's exe to the Voodoo2 icon! The dvd player will start. Now load the movie & enjoy!

(be careful with this driver, if windows cant boot after a crash with this driver, press f8 at boot, and select vga mode)

Dear jplee!
Yes, it supports SLI!

Before you install it, read the faq carefully.
You can find the faq in the .rar

@ jplee
This driver is for XP, no "chance" under Win98.
