Not long ago, a friend asked me the folowing question;

"Why you try to play new games on the old graphic card ( voodoo )?
Dose it make graphic better ( than other graphic card today )? does game run better?  IF not, why bother to do so?"

I don't know how to answer those questions, thought I can understand on the "spiritual" level why voodoo people want to do this, but that can't make a non voodoo people to understand why insist to play new games on Voodoo since there are better way to play. Even some times I have doubt why I collecting voodoo. ( around 15 of them )

Can you help me clear my mind? so I can have a good answer back to my friend.
Thank you very much

Dear 3dfxer,
I have been collecting 3dfx card after I join this forum not long ago.
Sincerely hope you can give me some advices.

Here are what I have;

1 v5500 agp
1 v5500 pci
1 v4500 agp
2 v4500 pci
1 v3000 agp
4 v2    pci  (3 Diamond monster 3d2 12mb 1 STB 12mb < BlackMagic?> )
1 v1    pci  (Orchid Righteous 3d 4mb)

As you can see, I am not trying to get rare item since I don't have money for those, just like to have some touch from each Voodoo generation.

So, what should I look after next? V3500?
If it not bother too much, can you tell me why should I go for your suggestion?

Thank you very much!!!!

Dear All,
Just wondering, is there a software can use V2 to play dvd?
( cause my 4mb on board vga has bad quality with DVD movie, and I give up trying my old realmagic hollywood1 -em7210, I think, since I can't find the right software to play dvd although I got the working driver.)

Any suggestion?

Thank you very much!!!

Hi,
Recently I use 2 Mostoer 3d II 12mb in SLI to play Diablo II and run in to a problem; After Runing game normaly for certain length of time,the screen suddenly become blur and dim. If look in to the game graph closely, I can see horizontal lines within although it's very tiny. Once  I exit game and re-enter in, everything then back to normal.
I don't recall exactly after how long I play then it happen, but I run in to it from time to time. So, is it one of V2 cards has problem? or it just normal...though I doubt it....    ;)
I need suggestions, Thank you very much!

Hi, I am new to 3dfx field.

I got voodoo5 5500 pci and 2 voodoo2 recently, I wonder, can a V5 5500 and 2 V2 in Sli work together with the passthrought cable? will i get conflict?

Or, it just waste time to do it that way?

Thanks you
