Messages - Glide

Make a control about frequency refresh: you must verify that the card refresh matches monitor specs.

If need i'm here.

Of course you'll be find not all settings in your driver control panel because some features are typical of Voodoo4/5 hardware or VIA based motherboard only: just reply what is on in your 3dfx Tools.

Use 3dfx Tools included in 3th party drivers as Amigamerlin 2.5 SE release.

Welcome to forum.

Try Direct3D 8 to OpenGL Wrapper located at 's Voodoo2 Utilities page (MS DirectX 8.1 or above are required).

Follow a tool screenshot:

If need i'm here :)

Which driver do you use for 3dfx card ?

Bye bye
I suggest to upgrade your OS to Windows XP: in fact for this platform Voodoo3 3500 drivers have less compatibility issues with DirectX 8.x and above than 9X/ME releases. Use AmigaSport 2.0 3500TV-XP driver for 3dfx V3 setup under XP.

Our beta testers are working: we want get a good level of performance and stability so you have to wait. When drivers will be ready we give announcement at site home and you could download.

PS: welcome in en board.

i will see if working on banshee is possible (time problem at this moment) to solve TMUs question with GLide api's. This could require some new libraries banshee dedicated.


Bye bye
Ok ;)

Pentium 4 based system (Intel chipset) - Creative 3D Blaster Voodoo2 SLI 24mb - Windows XP - FastVoodoo2 2.5 driver - UT High Quality settings

Tnx for topic that we hope be useful for many peaple ;).
Which Voodoo3 driver do you suggest for best results with this mod?

Have you made a comparison between the performances with a V3 driver modded and with another 3d party (banshee dedicated) driver (i.e X-Mojomotion 1.0 or others)?

- Spectrobozo

Download from FastVoodoo2 driver and install in your system: FastVoodoo2 driver kit works fine with OGL games (using WickedGL interface). I add that you must get FV2 3.5 if your OS is Win9X/Me or FV 2.5 if it's Win2k/XP.

Finally, in all tweak sections of 3dfxzone Voodoo area there are the release 2.30, 2.31, 2.99 (beta) and 3.20 (demo) of
Metabyte MiniGL (WickedGL)...[^]

- Spectrobozo: good idea. You could buy another Monster 3D II 8mb (SLI with mismatched cards is no full drivers supported and sometime poor of compatibility).

Bye bye
You can play with a "good" frame number at 800x600 resolution using WickedGL mini driver.
Better, many better if you could get another Monster 3D II to enable SLI configuration entering so in the true Voodoo2 System ;)

Bye bye
