Hello, I am a newbie here, so be kind please. I installed a new game to try it out, it was a friends. (Nascar4) It had me upgrade to DirectX 8, I have now found out that Voodoo3 does not work with DX8. Now some of my older games will attempt to load and get as far as the 3DFX logo, then hang. Does anyone know if there are drivers for the Voodoo3 that will work with DX8? If so what is the most painless way to remove the old Voodoo3 drivers. I am trying to avoid uninstalling DX8. Does DX8a have any improvements that will let the Voodoo3 work? Sorry for the bunch of questions. I was trying to give a full description of what I am seeing.
I have also gone into DXDiag and ran the DDraw, etc. They all came out OK. Sorry if this is a repeat post.
Thank You Dan
