I had initialy posted a thread about Direct X 8
http://forums.techguy.org/showthread.php?s=&threadid=59156

since I got no replies I thought of going into microsoft support.
Since I got a 3dfx voodoo card this is what I found

http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q186/5/78.ASP?LN=EN-US&SD=gn&FR=0

Under direct x diagnostic tool -- display--- Agp texture acceleration is grayed out , I was told that enabling it would make a great difference to performance . so I posted a thread but no luck, then i found this information on the microsoft support website as above , but still it doesn't solve my problem because the 3 dfx website is down and I need Glide drivers that are compatible with the official drivers of 3dfx

Are you sure your 3dFX Video card is an AGP card(don't be offended). Most of the older 3DFX cards were PCI.

Look at this also for Voodoo drivers. I think 3DFX Glide drivers were called 3DFx miniGlide or something like that(I used to own a Voodoo2).

Do you have DirectX 8 or the new DirectX 8.1? I have heard that after updating drivers that you sometimes have to reinstall DirectX
to get them to work properly.

Moderator needed to combine these threads.

:D
