he RocketDriver set is our Windows XP driver set for the Voodoo4 4500 and Voodoo5 5500 line of video cards. In RocketDriver you won't find all sorts of fancy and useless options that leave you disappointed with a 2 megabyte zip file that is nothing but a new INF file placed over an already existing driver set. You will, however, find new, different, and useful files that allow your XP Voodoo experience to be the best it possibly can be.
The current version of RocketDriver is Test Version 1. That means it hasn't been tested yet. Use it at your own risk, but remember, this set should work well in its current form without much modification.
This set is based on the 1.03.00 driver set for Windows 2000 created by 3dfx Interactive, Inc. and thus will leave the same options in 3dfx Tools as the original 1.03.00 would*
*you might notice that RocketDriverTV1 has no Glide Splashscreen files included with it. This is because this driver set does not use them, as we feel that it just wasted space in the archive including two 1 megabyte files that are never changed.
The MRA RocketDriver is based on the new GlideXP project, which is a project to create WindowsXP friendly Glide drivers. Currently RocketDriver should work with all 3 API's, in windowed and full screen modes.
This driver set does not have all sorts of fancy features in it like the other sets do, but it has new DLL files that don't cause crashes. No longer will you have to use WickedGL to get your OpenGL games to work, or old Direct3D files that only work with 1 chip.
This driver set is still a beta version, and not garunteed to work correctly, but try it out, and you might just like it. :)
