Exclamation Read Before Posting - All Relating Drivers - 10-21-2002, 00:26 | posts: n/a

Okay, Glidefan or someone, please make this sticky (it's fustrating to answer same questions over and over again)

Added links for 3dHQ Beta 7's (Win9x / 2k / XP, both V3 and V4/5, V4/5 drivers should be compatible with V3, haven't tested it but they have always been compatible so far)

1st reply - Windows 9x
2nd reply - Windows 2k
3rd reply - Windows XP
4th reply - Glide, MiniGL and OpenGL
5th reply - Utilities
6th reply - Voodoo2
7th reply - Voodoo Banshee
8th reply - Voodoo Graphics ("Voodoo 1")

I'll add WinNT 4.0, Mac and Linux drivers too, if required.

Voodoo2

Drivers recommended by Kaaos with BOLD text.

Drivers marked as "3dfx Voodoo2 1000" should work with any Voodoo2 cards, except for Quantum3D special Voodoo2s maybe.

Windows 98/98SE/ME(and maybe 95)

Creative 3D Blaster V2.16rc1 - DirectX 5 - Release Candinate 1
3dfx Voodoo2 1000 V3.01.01 - DirectX 6 driver
3dfx Voodoo2 1000 V3.03.00 - DirectX 6.1 driver - NOTE: OLDER THAN V3.02.02 despite the version number
Diamond Monster 3D II V4.10.01.0207 - DirectX 6 driver
3dfx Voodoo2 1000 V3.02.02 - Latest reference driver - DirectX 7

Windows 2000

3dfx Voodoo2 1000 V1.00.00b - Beta Release - Has some unique feature (don't know what though)
Note: (applies only with this particular driver afaik)
Voodoo2 runs on Windows 2000 Professional as a secondary display adapter
only and not as a multimedia device. Microsoft did not get "detached
device" support into the kernel in time to get it fully tested prior to
the final Windows 2000 Professional release. Detached device support is
required to run Voodoo2 as a 3D only board. This means that Voodoo2 can
only run attached to a multi-monitor desktop. 3dfx has developed a driver
capable of this, but there are few caveats.

1) The SLI configuration is not supported. This limits the maximum 3D
resolution to 800x600. The 1024x768x16 resolution is supported for the
desktop only. The Voodoo2 driver will not accelerate any DirectX operations
at the 1024x768 resolution. This is because there is not enough frame buffer
memory on a single Voodoo2 to practically accelerate 3D applications at
this resolution.

2) Voodoo2 is only supported in Multi-monitor mode (this requires users to
have an extra monitor to run their Voodoo2 card).

3) Video pass-thru is not supported. Apparently, this is the primary
reason for Microsoft deciding not to put this Voodoo2 driver on the Beta3
CDs. They concluded that many users would simply ignore the readme file
(that explained the caveats) and try to install and use the Voodoo2 just
like they did on W9x.

4) 2D corruption on desktop. This only happens with GDI calls and it is
caused by the lack of byte enabled hardware on Voodoo2.


3dfx Voodoo2 1000 V1.02.00 - Latest reference driver - Notes above doesn't apply with these drivers afaik.
Basic Voodoo2 driver for Win2k/XP - Only Glide and OpenGL, No D3D support.
Basic Voodoo2 driver for Win2k/XP - Only Glide and OpenGL, No D3D support.


WindowsXP

Basic Voodoo2 driver for Win2k/XP - Only Glide and OpenGL, No D3D support.
