3DFX and WindowsXP.....

I just revamped a computer for a friend and installed Windows XP, the only problem is, he has a 3DFX Voodoo3 2000 PCI Video card. Since 3DFX went out of buisiness long before WindowsXP, There are no "Official" Drivers..... Mostly his computer runs fine with XP's default Voodoo drivers. The problem comes, when he tries to run a game that uses Glide or OpenGL. Does anyone out there know of drivers that will work?

List of stuff I've tried:
-- Drivers for Windows 2000 (Redone for XP, unofficially)
-- SciTech OpenGL wrapper (Converts GL calls into Direct X)

So far EXTREMELY limited success has come from these efforts....


PLEASE HELP!!!!:confused:

I have been using and likeing the amigamerlin 2.1 drivers from voodoofiles for a long time now (since they came out) on my 3500. Works good for me, but all that is soon going to be behind me in a cpl of days, finally hehe.

Had no problems with my dads Voodoo 3 3000 under XP, but then again his computer couldn't handle too many OpenGL games, it's only a P3 500 ;)

(un) official drivers

A group of ex 3dfx ppl are running around writing drivers for the voodoo cards.

Go buy the name of 3dfx underground. They have their own site somewhere and their files can be found on Voodoo files.

Last I saw was 1.09beta4

Got a celeron400 + PCIVoodoo3 3000 running Jedi Knight :)
