Hi guys,

if you are looking for help about MesaFX installation I ask reading these small but useful user guides:

- MesaFX with 3dfx Banshee/Voodoo3/Voodoo4/Voodoo5 cards

- MesaFX with 3dfx Voodoo2/Voodoo2 SLI cards

Good luck

HI!

That's all fine and dandy but what does one do with those environment variables. Do they go in the registry? an ini file or what? Help me understand.

Thanks ~Hearse

Heheheh! They are environment variables. This means they have to be set either in AUTOEXEC.BAT or in a console window, like this:
set THISISANENVVAR=thisisitsvalue
Or, create a .BAT file that sets them the way you want and then launches the game.

Remember only _SOME_ of them are scanned in registry (follow the notes)!

I know it's cumbersome. I was to create a Mesa Control Panel, but haven't got the time to finish it. Worst case, I'm thinking to fallback to a simple .INI file.

OTOH, I know someone who rewrote the 3dfxish Control Panel, maybe I'll incorporate all those vars into his work, I dunno.

Ok!

Next question. I'm using APK3dfx Tuning Engine and it has a voodoo2 ini file editor. They don't go there. Right? So do they go in the registry under environment? I'm not sure how to make a autoexec.bat file as well.

I love tinkering with the V2's but much is beyond me . Anyway thanks in advance~

Only those that affect Glide can go there. Glide does parse that file.

Only some of them.

To use mesafx for example in quake 3 must we select voodoo driver or default opengl?
