Re: Retro confessions. What are yours?

I have always hated Apple my whole life, but I recently purchased a NIB dual CPU G4, and a Mac Mini G4 that runs MorphOS. Still looking to get a Quadra because Jurassic Park, and maybe a Color Classic or NeXT. I mainly just like them for the Motorola 680x0 CPU or PowerPC architecture, but I still …

Re: PowerVR PCX2 damaged in transit

Today is REPAIR DAY! Old capacitor removed. IMG_20210907_095148_resize_36.jpg Since I was working on the board already and the brand of capacitors was not recognizable, I decided to replace all of them at once. The correct value for all of the capacitors is 47uF at 16V or better. I will have to …

Re: 3Dfx Splash screen only on certain games?

Great to hear! Is it possible you could share your edited WinDrv.dll? This is the windrv.dll from Unreal Gold, but I suspect it would be the same for any Unreal 1 based game. As the forum does not allow for dll uploads, I went ahead and added it on my box account. Link Below: https://app.box.com/s/ …

Re: 3Dfx Splash screen only on certain games?

You could try hex-editing the environment string in WinDrv.dll. It's not strange if you allow video mode switching in-game while avoiding long initialization hitches coming from the splash (especially post-STB merge). Some OpenGL games that hide the splash would probably display it 3 times in a row …

Re: 3Dfx Splash screen only on certain games?

This flag should re-enable the splash screen I believe: FX_GLIDE_NO_SPLASH 0 (you are setting the value back to 0) As far as getting that to not be overwritten by unreal's startup routine...thats another story perhaps. If it doesnt just work after manually setting that variable (either in regedit …

Re: 3Dfx Splash screen only on certain games?

It is running Glide. It is obvious due to the monitor delay in resolution switching and decreased performance compared to the HD 7750 I have in the same system. Unreal was originally running glide through Nglide (GOG version) before I got the Voodoo 2s setup and deleted the Nglide dlls. The default …

3Dfx Splash screen only on certain games?

Running Voodoo 2 SLI (had this issue under single cards as well). Running Windows XP. Cards run great, no issues. However, it seems that I am getting the 3DFX splash screen on only some games. If I run an Unreal based game for example, I get no splash screen. If I run some other games, I can get a …

Re: Voodoo 2 SLI Black Screen

Got it working. Went to the registry and cleared out the entire Software -> 3dfx branch where the card environment settings are set. Some setting in there worked prior but not with my SLI setup. Heck the thing even runs with the 3dfx reference driver. So the memory differences did not seem the make …

Re: Voodoo 2 SLI Black Screen

Single sided 12MB?STB cards are reference designs, right? I thought all reference cards with memory only on the front were 8MB, 12MB needed the 4MB bank on the rear of the card to be populated. Yes, there are, with 1MB memory ICs: https://vgamuseum.ru/gpu/3dfx/3dfx-v2-1000-pci-3dfx-voodoo-ii-12-mb/ …

Voodoo 2 SLI Black Screen

I have a Voodoo 2 SLI system that when a glide game is launched will black screen, change resolutions (currently 800x600) and freeze. I have two Voodoo 2 STB 12MB cards, only slightly different. One is a single side 90Mhz memory, the other is dual side 100Mhz memory. Independently, they both work on …

Re: 3Dfx Voodoo 2 PCB SLI Bridge / SLI Cable
