Which are the latest Amigamerlin drivers suitable for Voodoo3 2000 and Win XP? On Win 98 SE I was using Amigamerlin 2.9.

Currently I`m back to Windows 98 with x3dfx drivers. As somebody said the best drivers are for windows 98 and he/she was absolutley right. I`m havin' v3 2000 myself and I prefer x3dfx drivers a lot more... and ofcourse Windows98SE to XP. But if you have better comp then mine then XP isnt a bad idea.

Who is that somebody and where did he say that?

I'm not going to play tons of 3d games with my voodoo, I just need it to run CS 1.6 with mesaFX just as good (or even better) on XP as it did on my win 98 SE install. I've simply reached the point where I pretty much cannot do without win XP, but I'd still want to play CS 1.6 from time to time, untill I get myself a new comp.

the driver is not too important (amigasport,SFFT,its your choice),but make sure you have a REAL glide2x in your windows/system32 folder.

Ree sorry for no exact quote about the one from Ive read the thing about that the best drivers are for w98se but im sure you`ll find it using search option if the exact form and author is so vitaly important for you...

Ive wrote that because I`ve tested both systems and dozens of diferent drivers and I`ve found x3dfx the best same as win98se if we are talking about gaming... XP is good but for better comp. ... BTW what are your specs ?

yes.wickedgl is much faster than mesafx (especially with games that use halflife1 engine).wickedgl uses glide2x,and it wont work with the glide2x to glide3x wrapper that comes with the amigasport package.SFFT driver should be ok,it comes with a real glide2x right away (but it doesnt have a control panel)..

Guys, you got me confused... I know I need Amigasport 3.0 XP (for win xp). What else do I need besides that? On the site you have it that mesa is an improvement, now magillom says it's slow... Could someone please tell me exactly what I need to use (besides amigasport) on windows XP. I am running V3 2000. Thanks in advance.

Ree as I told erlyier, from my tests and experience x3dfx drivers seem to be the fastest, Ive tried amigamerlins and they are slow even with low quality settings... But then again what are your specs ?

Specs do not matter in this case, I am still going to install Win Xp. It's PIII 450 MHz, 320 SDRAM, Voodoo3 2000.

Just trying to find out what exactly I should install, so that my voodoo runs well on xp.
