Alternative 3dfx OpenGL driver for Windows

Win32 (Windows 95,98,Me,NT4,2000,XP) OpenGL driver for 3dfx Voodoo Banshee, Velocity, Voodoo3, Voodoo4, Voodoo5 based on the Mesa 3D graphics library. It is still in its preliminary stages so do not expect much. I do not have enough time to work on it and the project has been suspended since 2001.

Note: This is a stand alone driver and does not require GLIDE2x™ or GLIDE3x™ drivers. However, you will need to have the 3dfx Windows drivers or 3rd party Windows drivers installed. It will not work with default Microsoft Voodoo Series drivers.

Alternative 3dfx OpenGL driver for Windows binary (554kb zipped)

Used q3config.cfg seta r_ignorehwgamma "1".

Copy the binary as OpenGL32.dll to the application or game folder. Do not replace it with the system folder's OpenGL32.dll.

I would like to take a moment to thank those who generously provided technical information and assistance.
