Hi all well the past few days I grabbed my 5000 AGP and started to play with it again but then in a whole different way by mixxing the Official 3dfx driver with AmigaMerlin's AmigaMerlin 2.9 3dfx Tools Control Panel, so here is how I got it all going, alot different that last time

Since that there are quite a few people that have a Voodoo 5 5000, AGP, PCI or both types of models.

The idea is to test this card under Windows 2000 Professional + SP4 with the latest 3dfx WHQL drivers.
Well that didn't really work so now I'm back to 98SE NL + UnOfficial Service Pack 2.03NL and go on from there.

So here's the card of today's test run again :

3dfx Voodoo 5 5000 AGP 32MB Rev.A0 3700

If there are more people with Voodoo 5 5000 AGP's or even PCI's feel free to join along!

So here's the system setup which I''ll be testing the 5000 AGP in:

Sveta

AMD AthlonXP 2700+
ASUS A7V333-R VIA Apollo KT333 [Main 3dfx flying testbed also]
1x Twinpack 2x 512MB PC-2700 Kingston Valueram
3dfx Voodoo 5 5000 AGP 32MB Rev.A0 3700
Creative Labs Sound Blaster Audigy2 Platinum eX[ Gift from dad, really]
1x Seagate Barracuda V 120GB 7200,7 rpm ATA HDD
Thermaltake Pure Power 520Watt EPS 12V with Power Station 5,25" Docking bay
LG 48.16x DVD Rom Player
Plextor Plex-Writer PX48/24/48A
Sony Floppy Disc Drive 3,5"

Windows 98SE NL + Unofficial Service Pack 2.03NL
DirectX 9.0C
3dfx Voodoo4/5 V1.04.00 - The Latest WHQL Drivers.
AmigaMerlin 2.9 3dfx Tools Control Panel

The Voodoo 5 5000 AGP 32MB Rev.A0 3700 works great with this driver + Control Panel combination!

3dfx Voodoo4/5 V1.04.00 WHQL + AmigaMerlin 2.9's 3dfx Tools!

Now FSAA x4 works splendidly in OpenGL, Direct3D as Glide

I used Unreal: Return To Na Pali to test the Glide API @ 1024 x 768 x16 in Glide with FSAA x4 :) and man the game really looks nice and runs fluid also

the pics have been compressed to .png formats just to spare the image quallity, they are a bit dark but the FSAA x4 is very well visable, nice stait lines no jaggies

So here's Unreal Tournament 2003 Ver 2225 Final.

1024 x 768 x 32 No FSAA @ Normal settings

Got more ingame UT2003 shots here they are with the modified 3dfx Logo for the intro of the game just to give it that extra 3dfx toutch

http://www.3dfx.ch/gallery/d/20203-1/5000+AGP+in+Action+e.png

Some maps were high detailed which made the 5K AGP create slowdowns with some pressure, but it was very playble in most cases which did surprise me for a 32Meg V5

Anyways so far so good Jedi Knight Jedi Academy is next, running UT2003 on high settings was like watching dia frames

Okay here are the pics of the 5000 AGP system setup 8)
