Hi People.
I have a potential PC that always give me this " Mapmen returned an error " when trying to map memory problem.
[All 3 Windows, which is 2K Pro, XP Pro and Vista Ultimate)

I saw the post Mapmen returned at http://www.3dfxzone.it/enboard/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=644 .
This works my another PC very well, but it doesn't work on my potential PC. I have download almost all drivers at 3dfxzone.it and mess around with Fastvoodoo 3.X 2.X 4.X Mesa Legend...etc . till I Am CraZY!

Thank God, I got it working...

My Potential PC specs is
Tyan S2469 http://www.tyan.com/archive/products/html/thunderk7xpro.html
4 GB DDR ECC
AMD MP 2800+ 2 Processors
Geforce FX 5200
2 X 80GB HDD IDE.
2 X DVD
2 X Voodoo2 SLI [Genius card SLI with Creative card]
1 X Audigy Soundcard.

I spend one week trying to resolve this issue and I [think] I had overcome the impossible.

This tweak is simple, and I had reinstall all 3 operating system countless times, to make sure this works for me & u. I would just like to share it with you guys.



First, Get the drivers...
http://www.3dfxzone.it/enboard/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=1514
I use 2.5.0

Secondly...

On XP (Memory Fix)
Note: The idea behind this, is to make it work! This tweak is to fix the problem & it has nothing to do with optmizing or improve the graphic perfomance.

Install the Driver for XP according to their documentation that comes with it.

Just double click voodoo2.exe on your desktop and adjust/configure it, OR... (see below - On XP and 2K: (Memory Fix) (Vista - Glide Only))



Win2K & Vista:(Memory Fix and A way to allow Glide/3DFX to be played in Vista/Win2K)

I found the use Windows Vista with this simple guide (SlI or Single Card) :

All you need to do, is to update the driver in Device Manager, with the LegendgrafiX VooDooMage2 XP, by updating the Voodoo2 with the correct driver:-

If you have 2 MisMatched card, then install
3DFX Voodoo2 SLI(secondary MisMatched) for both of it.

If you have 2 identical/Matched card, then install
3DFX Voodoo2 SLI(secondary Matched) for both of it.

If you have 1 single card, then install
3DFX Voodoo2 SLI(secondary Matched/MisMatched)

DO NOT ATTEMPT to install Voodoo2 itself, as it will not install with VISTA/2K Correctly!

Whatever is above, Copy and Paste it in notepad, save as Example.reg and run it. That's about it!





I ran Unreal Tournament, and Diablo2 in Vista! The loading is just slightly (a little noticable) slower in vista compare with XP, but the gameplay awesome (In term of speed, not graphic quality).

In my analyst, I think it is slightly more smoother but (noticable) I can feel that it is faster than XP, during Gameplay. As far as quality is concern, I think they are both the same.

I hope this help for those who wants to install Voodoo2 in Vista.

I sincerely hope that someone will come up a driver support for Vista too, although, I know it is not possible, as it is using DirectX10 API, but nevertheless,

Hi all,
This also applies to Windows 7, as I have tested it! But for best compatibility, its better to install Driver 2.2.0... not 2.2.5, for best compatibility for both vista and 7!

Regards,
Risky50

Thx for making this possible Panties82 / Risky50
Thanx to your research the support for new Opterating Systems for SST-2 aka Voodoo2 has improved!

Make me wonder maybe Voodoo3 series may work too, since Voodoo4 and 5 worked.

Did you run this under Win7 x32 or x64? x64 would be a greater challenge I'm think'n and more interesting hehe

Thx again mate and welcome to 3dfxzone.it and also by keeping the 3dfx Spirit alive!!

Obi-wan, i just accidentally found your new video on youtube. I searched for firefox multicpu support, to incrase it somehow, becouse now it runs very badly on my computer, and your video name somehow matched. I started viewing it... dual cpu.. hmm.. 3dfx logo on the side of computer, omg... then i watched the name of the uploader :D

hint: next time add the music separately as an mp3 to your video in the video creator program

Hi Obiwan,
Im really really sorry for such a LATE reply. Its year 2010 and I been busy. I also forgotten my username/password for this forum. Anyway, I am using Windows 7 32 bit.

I don't have a motherboard that support 64bit processor yet.
I'll update here, if anything comes up.

Regards,
Panties82

I would like to install just 1x

Diamond Monster 3D II 8mb Voodoo 2 card.

What do I have to install for drivers?

I have installed

3Dfx Voodoo 2 SLI (secondary mismatched)
3Dfx Voodoo 2 SLI (secondary)

this does not work... Do I have to install SLI Drivers in anyway also when just 1 card is installed? Does it matter what the main graphics card is? I have a GT 430 with only a DVI output. But I don't have to install the VGA Loop cable in order to get a picture of the voodoo 2 card right?

When I start tomb raider II demo I only can choose the primary graphicscard driver
