Re: To start using 3dfx.

By the way, which video device is better?

Diamond Stealth 3D 2000 (S3 ViRGE)
- or -
S3 ViRGE /DX

For the record, the Stealth 3D starts monochromatic whereas S3 ViRGE /DX does not. Does this happen to anyone else than me?

Re: To start using 3dfx.

To Arkl1e, Omarsis81 is right, sound sluttering is only happend if your cpu can not emulate 100%, you have i5-4570 @ 3.20GHz so p166mmx should hopefully work fine and always at 100%. I see. I believe it needs more time, getting optimized and stuff, I hope the project doesn't get dropped off anytime...

Re: To start using 3dfx.

Sound stuttering is because you are trying to emulate a CPU your (host) computer is not able to emulate at full speed. That´s why you have a percentage number in the PCem's window. If it is below 100% you will get sound stuttering- For what I see in your screenshots you are around 82%. That's what ...

Re: To start using 3dfx.

Problems I found so far, don't know if either emulator's limit or just me doing things wrong. ========================= Problem A ========================= Something I didn't expect from this Diamond Stealth 3D is the monochomatic display outside Windows . After that, Windows is coloured. 1st update...

Re: To start using 3dfx.

Wonder why 3dfx didnt make that way? Rendering in a window would be hudge advantage for voodoo. Back then, the standard resolutions were 640x480, 800x600 and 1024x768, mostly the last two from 2000-01 on. Doesn't look much of a difference, considering there's not much you can do outside a 640 or 80...

Re: To start using 3dfx.

I used the S3_ViRGE DX or the sorts, I'll give that ...

Re: To start using 3dfx.

You NEED to set the Windows' desktop to 256 colors or more for Voodoo to work, so Install the 2D card driver's and configure the colors As I stated before, I did install the drivers but keeps showing me only two color options within properties -> settings: 2 colors and 16 colors. I'm also limited t...

To start using 3dfx.

I lost my mind searching, so I decided to make my first foot inside the forum to ask you something I didn't find (not even a clue): Inside the "Configure PCem" window, within Video options there's no "3dfx" neither "voodoo" items rather than just the "Voodoo Graphi...
