Emulation
Guides on emulating older applications

This driver is for a PC Voodoo2 in your Power Mac with a PCI slot-no emulators!
Won't work for OS X

It plays Glide and OpenGL games very well, but has some issues with Quickdraw 3D (textures get messy in Nanosaur with my 12MB Voodoo2, but are fine on my 8MB card)

For running the hardware itself, you need at least a fast 604e, or most games will be CPU-bound.

FIXME: We need a new line on all the other drivers for 3DFX hardware, because the link in the previous version of this post pointed nowhere.

I have tried the card in a PC, and it is a Voodoo1 original (sigh). I now have the loopback cable (PC) and two adaptors for Mac monitors, so I am ready if and when the time comes...

Added a toast image of the Game Wizard driver CD. As well as drivers it also contains patches for some games and a demo of F/A-18.

A lot of the missing ones from the archived site are available in the second link I posted. The V3 ROM Clocker can be found here.

Also, looking up some of the missing filenames can throw up other sites like this one.

Update: I've bundled all the files from the sites mentioned in my comments here into an archive and uploaded it. I included a text file with a basic description of each file (lifted from the sites) as well as the OpenGL 1.2.1 installer required for proper operation in 9.2.

This old site seems to still have some working links via the wayback machine.

And a bunch more are here.

There are some GREAT sites for WINDOWS drivers for Voodoo (1,2,3 etc.) including MiniGL drivers for specific games, but very little in the way of Mac drivers. Your best bet is to search for the Manufacturer's name followed by HQX, SIT or BIN. I found quite a few on XLRate your mac -- they just need to be transferred here (before they are gone for good).

PS. I only have ONE Voodoo card at the moment (looks like a dual GPU card from the heatsinks) but it was pulled from a PC, and will need a new Mac loopback cable (or adaptor). I don't have a Mac that will accept this card anyway.
