Hi, im new in the forum.
I got a 12mb voodoo2 and installed the fastvoodoo2_3.0 drivers...it recognizes the card...but whenever i try to start a game in glide it gives this error: "mapmen returned an error when trying to map memory". In the device properties everything is ok except in resources tab. "the device is not using any resources cos it has a problem"....i have no clue why does this happen.....i want to use my card!!!. i dont wanna go back to win98 or me.

Ok, probably the problem is due to the primary card that is on board. So you go in the system bios and enable the setting: Assign IRQ to VGA and let me know.

Bye bye

hi, i got into the bios, and to my surprise the setting assign IRQ to VGA was already enabled.
i tried by disabling it...but still doesnt work.

there is another setting also. PCI IDE busmaster, it is disabled.

maybe i should try with both enabled????.

- Nightbird:

Ciao ,
lars18 OS is WinXP so D3D games don't run...

- lars18:

Please install the Voodoo2 card in the first PCI slot (that near to AGP slot) and verify by motherboard manual that the first slot does not share its IRQ with other slots or chipset devices.

Let we know.


Bye bye

Hello,

I have the same problems like lars1S.
My Monster 3D II (8MB) works fine under win98 and linux, but in win2k I get the "mapmen returned an error when trying to map memory".

The card is installed in a non-shared pci-slot (checked this). In the device proberties is only a mem range listed, but no irq. I also deactivated a lot of onboard devices to free irqs.

PS: In case you wonder why I need a voodoo2... I am playing Ultima 9. It works a lot better with a voodoo than with a D3D card.

Thanks
Josef Wegner

My System:
Win2k SP4 (German)
ASUS A7N8X Deluxe
Athlon XP 2500+ (Barton)
2 x 256 MB RAM (CL2, DualChannel)
Club3D Radeon 9600 Pro

Hi all,
I know I'm new here and this topic is rather old, but I get the same error and need some help. My specs are:

OS: Win XP SP1
Board: Epox EP8RDA3+
CPU: Athlon XP 3200+
Graphics 1: Club 3D ATI Radeon 9800 Pro
Graphics 2: Diamond Monster 3D II
Driver: Fast Voodoo2 3.0

The driver does not show the card like described in this http://www.3dfxzone.it/enboard/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=343 topic, but as said there, that should not be the problem. But when I try to start Deus Ex I get the mapmem error and the graphics tool from Diablo2 does not even recognize that there is a 3dfx card.
Any idears???

Ciao Bert

Yes, I have an idea: you go on this page http://www.3dfxzone.it/dir/news/3dfx/fv2_4.0_xp_ge and will know

- for all: this topic is FastVoodoo2 3.0 related so you don't post about other driver releases. In this way we can better understand yours problems and give so useful helps, if these are possible of course.

Thank you
