Sorry, I didn't mean the Voodoo 6000, I meant the Voodoo6. Hah. Pppt.

Never was going to be something called the "Voodoo6", As Far As I Know.

Don't say that. He'll start charging you a fee.

Also note that any 3D "acceleration" in emulation would not take advantage of your Host processor card. So your "acceleration" would be comming from your CPU which is struggling to emulate everything else. I expect TNT1/Voodoo3 (640X480 max)levels of performance in VPC would be feasible but Games are not their primary market.


True, but basic Direct3D support would at least allow 3D programs to _run_ for test purposes. Presently, even attempting an install will (usually) cause an abort due to lack of 3d support.

"Lay the foundation down first, we'll build the house later" kind-of thing.

Minimal 3D support should allow for testing without drawing too terribly much from resources...*cough*voodoo1*cough*

Their VESA emulation RULES however. 😀 Unfortunately their DOS sound SUCKS! 🙁


Annoying. Found that it (apparently) can't handle speech as it's too complex. Also found DOS games that simply can't "see" a soundblaster while it's in DOS.
