Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

I tried yesterday, same problem. Still will be helpful, cus I couldnt find all the data about every resolution I wanted, and now I can just calculate it from powerstrip numbers. Will try today with reference drivers, vga, xp.... Maybe its a v5 think, maybe digital out, maybe some configuration. I …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

Im trying to expand the selectable resolutions a bit. If anyone could pitch in with some idea, help wanted :) I added some resolutions to driver inf file. And the games read the new list and show the resolutions nicely. D3d games also works as expected. https://i.postimg.cc/B6mr0GCj/IMG-20220119- …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

Updated Win98 drivers section. A bit offtopic, Unreal tournament, OpenGl renderer, although not exactly perfect, does run a fair bit faster than Glide. At 1600x1024, 32bits runs about 57.81fps in UTbench.dem, during usual gameplay you hover around 90fps, with drops to 60fps, depending on the map and …

Re: GeForce4 vs. GeForce FX?

A bit offtopic, but I had x850xt in an a64 3200 system running about 240fps, 270 with fast ram and 408fps with e5800, 1080p all maxed. So with p4, you can go a bit lighter gpu if you ment x800 series as similar, p4 gonna bottleneck it.

Re: EAX or A3D for Win98SE?

A3d does spatial audio. Early eax does reverb. Vortex2 still does eax. I kinda see it as a no brainer for around 2000 games. Eax gets good later on, f.e.a.r. is a good example. But around 2k games, supp for a3d 2.0 is great, kinda a bitch to get it working with everything, some games work with this …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

Yea hdmi works. Some widescreen resolutions are either missing or (1920x1080) have wrong timings, not the cards problem, but the drivers. This can be solved following these instructions , also the reason I went to bed at 3am today :P. I have a few cards and this is the first one that worked in 1080p …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

The problems (well to be honest it was just one and thats fixed too) that Im facing, dont exists on the original one, cus there arent(without modification) any v5 with 128mb, or compatibility with newer agp, or hdmi, new features bring new challenges! If you run it as original, its gonna act as …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

Before a few days ago, I was using himemx and a limit set to 512mb. With a radeon x850xt that has 256mb. Never had any problems. Just for installing os, or booting into safe-mode, before I could install the patch, I just removed one 1gb stick, and left it with 1gb. Also worked. I am aware there are …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

I do run the patch, cus I use 2gb. But today I had a fresh install on the amd system, thats why its only 1gb, it installs fine with that. Moments ago Anthony helped me troubleshoot the missing icons situation on 128mb, but then drivers wouldnt install, it was a "throw your mouse to the wall if its …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

I plan to use 99-03 3dmarks, quakes and unreals. If I get everything in working order, for superduper benchmark with other cards, Ill see how many games I can add, that arent a pain in the ass to bench :) Cooling yea.. Its fine as it is, still Ill do some small tweaks. Initial oc testing showed this …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

Cooling optimization and Overclocking Put some more heatsink on it, that small backside one really helps. https://i.postimg.cc/0NkntSVg/IMG-20220121-134426.jpg Polished the main heatsinks This is how it looks, not very good, mat color, rough to the touch. https://i.postimg.cc/PfgMg9SQ/IMG-20220122- …
