New Voodoo 5 Drivers Available
6:00 AM | Lucian Fong | Comment on this story

3dfx delivered the second Voodoo 3/4/5 driver update in less than two weeks, this version listed at 1.1.0. Where was 1.0.9 you ask? According to 3dfx's Bryan Speece, it was scheduled for release this week, but issues with the Voodoo3 portion of the drivers prevented it. They decided to delay the release and roll everything into the 1.1.0 driver package.

As usual, the driver update is available through the auto-update feature in the 3dfx MacTools control panel. No documentation was included with this release, but "Rich" of 3dfx pointed out the following in the 3dfxgamers.com forum:

These 1.1.0 drivers will be posted to the web site soon.
The fixes in the drop include:

  • Voodoo 3 2D fix
  • Lock up issues in some games while playing videos
  • 32bit Bugdom/RAVE fix
  • Stay tuned to IMG for more details on these drivers.
