Hi,
ahavasi,
yes there are grass\road textures in wrong place but nothing
cretical
I also use voodoo5 5500 with sfft alpha 33 driver (and 3dfxTools) Win XP,and in video option I use default values (800x600 24bit-16bit,refresh:60hz,vertical sync:enable)but I don't understand what is vertical sync and why you have disabled itand I think 60hz is the max capacity of voodoo 5 5500 exept if you have overcloaced it.
You can specify what system configuration and drivers you use
the only one problem that I have notice in World of Warcraft it's that sometimes it slowing down(I hava modify 3dfxTools fastest performance and I put it on single chip only for increase compatibility but I don't know if that worked)
I hope that I was not too long and excuse my bad english
Thenks for any aditional precisions

My system: GA-8SMML Motherboard, P4 1.7Ghz, 256MB SDRAM, Voodoo5 5500 AGP, Win XP Pro.

@in3d,

If you want to get the maximum performance from your voodoo card, turn off V-sync in your 3dfx tools and/or games (if they give you the option)

The 60hz your mentioning is the current refresh rate of your monitor, if your particular monitor supports higher frequency's (ex. - 75, 85, 100 etc.), please use them as 60hz would give just about anybody a serious headache after a short time of viewing.

Hi all,
For WoW game performances, I noticed that it Distinctly runs better with AM 3.1 r11 than sfft Alpha 33 driver .
And now I put another exemple of some "ground textures corruptions" that I noticed in the game with both AM 3.1r11 and sfft a33 drivers. In this picture you can see a kind of "squars" in ground :

Thenks.

I'm pretty sure that is just lack of memory, as my buddies laptop has a 32Meg ATI mobility7000 and does the same exact thing. 1GIG of system ram is a MINIMUM to keep "lag" away for WOW. and NO it's NOT your connection, it IS the RAM size of your system that slows things down in the big cities..

It probably is a memory problem. Remember, even though the Voodoo5 has 64MB RAM it's really only a 32MB card since the memory is split between the 2 VSA-100 chips.

WoW is both a opengl game and Direct3d game, if you want to try running opengl, do this, go to your WoW directory, create a shortcut of WoW.exe, place it on your desktop, go to properties on the shortcut, and in the target after World of Warcraft\WoW.exe" put -opengl so it would look like "C:\Program Files\World of Warcraft\WoW.exe" -opengl

thats all. Now the game runs a bit slower in opengl since opengl in WoW isn't done quite well, but give it a shot. I don't have a 3dfx card anymore so I can't test this unfortunately. My guess is the messed up texture problem will be fixed but the games performance may drop to unplayable, but thats my prediction, so I may be wrong.

hmmmmmm. I just did some research on my budies laptop video (for upgrade purposes) and I found out that the ATI mobility 7500 is only a DX 7 card?????? the mobility 9000 is only a DX 8.1???? capable card? maybe it really IS the DX incompatability and not the lack of video RAM.
