Hi,

I have a Voodoo4 4500 PCI and i have some problems with driver on WinXP SP3.

I have tested Amigamerlin, SFFT and 3dhq with some errors as listed bellow:

SFFT 1.9: Is the more stable driver for DIRECTX and have the best performence, but, games Glide not work (NFS5 and NFS4 no starts, buffer error - No enough video memory). OpenGL and Direct 3D games work fine and windows is very stable.

Amigamerlin 3.0 - Glide games starts, but i have OpenGL bugs e some Windows unstability (BSOD).

Amigamerlin 3.1 R11 - Same 3.0 + Direct3D bugs (color deph stay in 16bits even if I try to change to 32 ).

3dhq - Glide games no starts and direct3d games cause BSOD.


I have tested the card into WIN98 and he is fine. The computador i have to put then do not support Win98 (i tested into friend's PC).

Have a tip to solve this problems?

Some news

I have tested the Glide3x provided by koolsmoky in version 3.10.00.2610 and are able to start the games with SFFT Driver. But, using da .30303 glide (the lastest version) i have the related bug.

Another issue is with the Glide Splash intro during starting of 3d environment. Using the .30303 i have the splash, but, using 2610, wont.


PS: The Splash Screen are activated into 3DFX Tools.

Problem solved. I have reinstalled all of windows and installed a clean version of SFFT1.9 with the last version of GLIDE.
