Voodoo3 HSR Fix for Win9X

hat are these files for?
-------------------------
Since 3dfx' demise (sigh), a bunch of beta driver sets have been released for the Voodoo3 2K/3K series, from 3dfx' own 1.07b drivers, to fans' own contribution.

One interesting thing with these files is that they allow in OpenGL the so-called "Hidden Surface Removal" or HSR, a.k.a. "Don't draw what should not be seen". The result is a potential increase in OpenGL games, like Quake 3 Arena ((c) iD Software).

The downside is linked to the Direct3D drivers, as users (including myself) have been complaining about artefacts in games, such as messed-up shadows.

After trying different driver sets said to combine HSR and compatible Direct3D drivers, without much success, I decided to bring my (geek) contribution.

What do I need?
---------------
1. A Voodoo3 2000/3000 running on a PC with Windows9X
2. The latest official 1.07.00 WHQL drivers from 3dfx installed
3. A wee bit of knowledge about "regedit" and "copy/paste" ;)

known issues?
-----------------------
Yes, mainly linked to the beta state of the HSR feature. You will have to limit the framerate to avoid a "shaky" image.

In Quake 3 Arena, you accomplish this feat by typing the following command in the console: "com_maxfps XX" where XX is usually between 45 and 60 (you will have to test yourself).

I also noticed that FAKK2 ((c) Ritual Entertainment) did not like HSR that much.

Other issues may show up...

What do you ask for these files?
--------------------------------
Nothing but a bit of credit for taking (wasting?) time to put the registry keys together in a geek way (heh). If you have comments, please drop a line on voodooboard.com, instead of blowing up my e-mail box...

Have fun!
