Recently I aquired a pair of 2 VooDoo2 Diamond Monster 8MB and wanted to hook them up in SLI but I seem to struggle to get them working properly because there seems to be a lot of drivers out there and I am not even sure if I am running them currently in SLI mode.
I do think I hooked them up properly by using the ribbon and passthrough cables.
My main AGP card is an Nvidia FX5900, then I have both Diamond Monster Voodoo 2 cards after that and a Matrox M3D all in PCI slots.
Now the Matrox M3D works beautifully by just installing the drivers and ticking the box for it but the VooDoo2 dont seem to work as I get only black screens in games like Unreal Gold, Incoming or Expendable when I try to run them in Glide mode.
Honestly I am a little bit underwhelmed by the Voodoo 2, how was this card considered to be top of the line in 1998 ? 😒
Does someone has some general advice on how to set them up properly and what drivers work best ?
I installed the latest Diamond Monster II V2 drivers and the 3rd V2-1000 drivers and both show up in the config panel but the games just black screen on me. Another game I tested was Half-Life, even thou it said to use the GL-Mini driver it didnt work out with that either. I also want to mention that I had to installthe drivers for each card two times which is weird 😒
Here is a screenshot from both driver informations
