Hi guys, I'm experiencing some rain like horizontal glitches in the image when I use the Diamond Monster 3D II cards -no matter the game-. I want to know if this effect if produced by the drivers, or it could be related to some hardware problem.

My sys-specs are:
MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum mainboard
MSI NX6600 Diamond Video Card
1Gb of RAM (2 x 512Mb)
AMD Athlon 64Bits 3000+
2 x Diamond Monster 3D II 8Mb. each (Voodoo2)
Maxtor 6V200E0 HDD 200Gb (SATA II)
Samsung CDRW
Samsung 173v LCD Monitor (17 inches)
Windows XP Home Edition -spanish- with SP2

Which driver are you using?

However, enable V-Sync via driver control panel or some utility as Voodoo2 Overclock Tool (this is here: http://www.3dfxzone.it/dir/3dfx/voodoo2/tweak.htm) and that visual artifact will disappear.

I'm using FastVoodoo2 4.0 XP GE.

I'll try V-Sync via driver control panel and I'll let you know how it worked.

the control panel doesnt work,AFAIK.you will have to enable the vertical synchronization manually,get my regfixes here.translated readme:
v-sync_0.reg: v-sync off,fastest setting,may cause tearing.
v-sync_1.reg: v-sync on,removes tearing,recommended for most games.
v-sync_2.reg: v-sync special,removes tearing,slower that v-sync_1,use only if game chokes weirdly when using v-sync_1 (UT,Deus Ex..)
