    yes i have been to voodoofiles.com

    and no all their drivers are bullsh*t they are full of bugs (cuz they are all 3rd party and BETA) and to top it off ... they all give u errors with the 3dfx tools ... i hate this Bullsh*t ... they should just hire a new set of programmers to do this.... BTW THE MAIN PROBLEM IS THAT WINDOWS THINKS MY CARD IS PCI WHEN ITS AGP >>> DX8.1 thinks this and wont let me use AGP settings

    Voodoo 3 3000 AGP and WinXP

    Hey Pal, I'm owner of a Voodoo 3 3000 AGP and have XP Pro running on my box.
    I've looking through voodoofiles.com and all that junk, and finally found a Driver that works fine.
    I mean, with XP Driver, I could not play MOHAA or games like that (Some Glide Errors appears), but with this drivers I'm "Up and Running again".
    Look voodoofiles.com for "Amigamerlin 2.1" Drivers on 3rd Party Drivers.
    Is the only driver that works for me (I'm AMD T-Bird Owner with an EpoX 8KTA3-Pro Board).
    Hope this help you.
    Good Luck!

    And just so you know Voodoo's ARE AGP cards...but they do not use sideband addressing for AGP texture acceleration...in fact a few cards don't use it cause alot fo stuff isn't programmed to take advantage of it

    3dfx took some flax for not including support at all but too late to fix that...so yes it is a AGP card, but no you will not have AGP texture acceleration no matter what the driver sorry man.
