    You can always try the x3dfx drivers. There aren't many VooDoo 5 users left so it won't be easy to troubleshoot it.:(

    Try some of the others at http://www.voodoofiles.com, if not could try Direct3D instead. Course getting a different graphics card would be the best choice.

    Other than that be sure Trilinear filtering is disabled in the Game & you have the latest 3dfx minigl installed -> version 1.49, should be linked to in our voodoo 4/5 guide

    The only people who can help you are the ones who own the card. We can't say which drivers will prove best in CS since you're the only one who has the card.

    Or you could stop whinning, dump the V-5 and get an inexpensive GF-2,3, or 4. Prices are really falling on them! Then all your problems would be solved and you would have new ones ! ;)

    Have you tried WickedGL?
    It works very well with Banshee, probably with V5, too.

    'Scuse me...
    Where does it say that anyone who posts in a forum is supposed to have infinite knowledge?
    As far as I am aware only people attributed with this are gods of various religions. I am not aware of any non deity figure that possesses infinite knowledge, if you know of such a person please let me know about them as I would like to meet them. :rolleyes:

    Several of our members (Uncleel included) have Voodoo 5 cards so if their advice is of no use then it looks like Voodoo support is almost dead :(

    Hey man.. I have a V5 5500 AGP.. I'm had some driver issues myself.. I'm using the Amigamerlin 2.1 set now and that seems to work pretty good (though I've had some problems with D3D/Glide with different games). All I can say is that Voodoofiles has a comprehensive list.. try them and see which works best.
    Also: Microsoft released a compatible driver for the V5 AGP version at least.. I don't know about PCI. I found the Amiga ones better, but you can look and see.
    Why they released it is beyond me.. but I thought it was cool.. maybe they'll release an updated one which works better! :p

    Hope it helps,
    Jeremy

    using wicked gl and the amigamerlin 2.1 driver set for windows xp and my voodoo 5 have taken a turn for the worse. When counter-strike starts up i have about 5 minutes of good gameplay (good fpps too), when for no reason cs locks up and i have to turn off the computer to restart. what can i do????

    Try looking here:

    Maybe this guide can help you some more with your problem. If not then would you please post some system specs for us to ponder over so we can get a better understanding of your problem.

    Sounds like you might have a heat problem if your computer locks up only 5 minutes into the game and your still getting good FPS. Trying finding out if your video card gets really hot when gaming. If this isn't the case then try to use different drivers and reinstalling wicked gl.
