Re: Windows2000 or WindowsXP for a dual P3 1Ghz (Coppermine), 2GB of ram, Geforce 6800+voodoo2 SLI ?

It's unfortunate that you went with XP, I also would of suggested that you should of went with windows 2000. I don't know why people on here seem to think the dual PIII 1ghz is better suited for XP. When a P3 with sse is like the minumum system requirements for XP. You cannot even install XP on a …

Re: Best WinXP Video Card

Best card that works out of the Box is a GTX 960. If you modify the last official Geforce drivers for a 960 you can install a GTX 970 and or a 980. These are the best GPUs you can get for XP. Op makes the case about you shouldn't pick the fastest card becasue of CPU bottle neck. But that is cherry …

Re: Are Voodoo graphics card THAT good ?

Another nice thing about voodoo 3 is that the best voodoo 3 you can get was the most commonly available card. The compaq v3500 OEM board that is 183mhz. It is the same GPU as the 3500 TV card but without the TV tuner. There is no use for the TV tuner in 2018 so yea. These cards also outperform v2 …

Re: Are Voodoo graphics card THAT good ?

Back in the days of many GPU brands different then todays nvidia vs AMD, nothing was better then MatroX when it comes for 2D image quality, second was ATi... And about NOvideo, well they did have even years after 3Dfx trash quality and colors compared to ATi cards, that did have superior image …

Re: Are Voodoo graphics card THAT good ?

Just my opinion, for Retro gaming Voodoo 3 is just about the best card. Im sure others will disagree but a voodoo 3 will pretty much play almost everything. It had great 2d and DOS support, D3D up to version 6-7 is fine. OPENGL is great. Anything newer Nvidia cards are just better and 3dfx later …

Re: Shadow Warrior 3D black screen

the sw3dff11.zip from 98 It is the 3dfx patch for that game. It doesn't do a full 3dfx conversion like many people said. It does however allow you to utilize a voodoo 2 at 800x600 and the game does look better and play better even if it's not a massive improvement it is a improvement over the …

Re: Shadow Warrior 3D black screen

Just my opinion, probably a matrox g400 Maxx with a voodoo 2, running the game from pure dos with sw3dfx would run this game the best. Matrox and Voodoo3+ cards have a much higher quality DAC digital to analog video converter over Nvidia and ATI cards. Images in general are much clearer. Unless you …

Re: Shadow Warrior 3D black screen

I had plenty of problems getting Shadow Warrior to run. Basically I am going to tell you is the game will not run if your CPU is like over 600mhz. You also cannot patch the game and use the 3dfx build engine to build the game textures if the CPU is too fast. You can try to down clock your CPU if …

Vigilance 3dfx game

Ok I couldn't find any info about this game on this website so I want to make a post about it. A little about my rig. I have a 440bx 800mhz p3 with a V3 and a V2 in the same computer. I downloaded this game because it looked awesome but I couldn't get it to run properly on my compaq voodoo 3500. The …
