 3dfx Channel   MesaFX 6.2 
 

MesaFX 6.2 is latest release of a graphics library useful to run a lot of OpenGL-based games in alternative to their built-in miniGL. MesaFX improves performances of 3dfx hardware with OpenGL games in most conditions.


MesaFX 6.2

Newer MesaFX release v. 6.2 is on line and downloadable from 3dfxzone.it here. This update is for Voodoo2, Voodoo2 SLI, Banshee, Velocity, Voodoo3, Voodoo4 and Voodoo5 on Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP OSes. It improves 3dfx hardware performance with both old and current OpenGL based games allowing to get more speed playing by higher frame rates and more visual quality by 32 bit color depth (this last on VSA-100 cards only).


What is Mesa?

Mesa is a 3-D graphics library with an API which is very similar to that of OpenGL. To the extent that Mesa utilizes the OpenGL command syntax or state machine, it is being used with authorization from Silicon Graphics, Inc.(SGI). However, the author does not possess an OpenGL license from SGI, and makes no claim that Mesa is in any way a compatible replacement for OpenGL or associated with SGI. Those who want a licensed implementation of OpenGL should contact a licensed vendor. We heartly thank the whole development team made up of these men: David Bucciarelli, Daryll Strauss, Keith Whitwell, Daniel Borca, Hiroshi Morii. And of course, Kudos to Brian Paul, sine qua non.


MesaFX Setup

MesaFX must be used like a "patch" for the games, just in a similar way of 3dfx MiniGL or Metabyte WickedGL: you can read related tutorials in Best Settings section.


Which drivers with MesaFX?

This table contains a drivers list: these are releases successfully tested with MesaFX and also these we suggest for general purpose of 3dfx cards.
