Voodoo2 SLI & DirectX 7 question

Postby buckeye » 2018-3-13 @ 17:08

I wondering if anyone knows if the latest ref. drivers OR the FastVoodoo iterations play nice with DX7? The actual card(s) with be Creative 3D Blaster 2 in SLI.

Also note that the DirectX7 V2 drivers do regress some D3D games' visuals. Breaks AVP for example so don't forget about the DX6 drivers yet.
Voodoo2s aren't 100mhz stock
Geforce256 isn't released as a beta on New Years '99 under the Quadro brand
