 Koolsmoky Voodoo2 Driver Test Kit - Latest Glide drivers for 3dfx Voodoo2 
 


[ Go Back ]


What is it?

This package is a test release that was published by Koolsmoky at our english forums: now we give it more visibility so more people can download and test it. 

This is basically a driver for 3dfx Voodoo2 classic 3D accelerators and for Quantum3D Obsidian2 cards. Its native design allows Voodoo2/Voodoo2 SLI configuration with Microsoft Windows 2000 and XP OSes but you can use some its files with Windows 98/ME too (read the following rows to know as to do).

It contains Glide2x and Glide3x in beta version from glide.sourceforge.net: the Voodoo Graphics Memory Mapper is beta too.

 

What is new?

The kit includes:

  • Fixes for memmap errors and desktop corruptions;

  • Optimizations for 3DNow! and MMX;

  • Embedded (experimental) support for mismatched SLI.

So it extends Voodoo2 compatibility with some system featuring particular northbridge and graphic chip-set and Windows 2000/XP like OS. Besides, it adds more gaming speed in the other cases due to glide.sourceforge.net drivers.

 

Installation

Koolsmoky Voodoo2 Driver Test Kit does not support standard installation procedure, that is by a setup file: so Windows 2000/XP users must execute a manual installation. If Windows does not ask for a driver, they must install it choosing Update Video Card Driver in Device Manager under Windows Control Panel: then can reboot the system. Of course, be sure to uninstall previous Voodoo2 driver before installing this kit.

Windows 9x/ME users can use its Glide drivers simply installing the (latest) reference 3dfx Voodoo2 driver, then copying the glide2x.dll and glide3x.dll native libraries from the Koolsmoky Voodoo2 Driver Test Kit to the folder at the path: C:\Windows\System.  

For other info about these steps and help requests, please do not send emails to us but use support forums for both english and italian languages.

 

Notes

To get an optimal hardware setup and/or before to install this release please consider that:

  • FFX_GLIDE_SWAPINTERVAL = 0 will force VSYNC off. V2 SLI may have problems syncing the scanlines when VSYNC is off;

  • Alphablending dither subtraction is disabled by default. Set FX_GLIDE_NO_DITHER_SUB = 1 to enable dither subtraction;

  • 4bbp->16bbp 4x4 dither matrics is always forced to 2x2;

  • Set SSTV2_MISMATCHED_SLI = 1 for mismatched SLI support. This may not work due to differences in Voodoo2 board design. If you have problems try swapping the PCI slot order of the Voodoo2 boards;

  • If the screen goes blank but you still hear the application running in the background, reconnect your display and pass-through cable to the second V2 or set SSTV2_SWAPBOARDS = 1.

 

Notes for Obsidian2 owners

Quantum3D Obsidian2 X-24, X-16, and similar SLI boards must have the following set.

  • SSTV2_FT_CLKDEL = 5;

  • SSTV2_TF0_CLKDEL = 7;

  • SSTV2_TF1_CLKDEL = 7 ;

  • SSTV2_TF2_CLKDEL = 7;

  • SSTV2_SLIM_VIN_CLKDEL = 3;

  • SSTV2_SLIM_VOUT_CLKDEL = 2;

  • SSTV2_SLIS_VIN_CLKDEL = 3;

  • SSTV2_SLIS_VOUT_CLKDEL = 2;

  • SSTV2_GRXCLK = 90 .

 

Thanks to...

From 3dfxzone.it arrives a lot of thanks to both our skilled programmers and all - public and private - beta testers: you are helping us to exceed time limits of Voodoo cards.

Thank you.
