Troubleshooting Voodoo2
-------------------------------

####

Q: I have an S3 968/868 video card, why does my system lock
up when I run a Glide or Direct3D title.

A: S3 968 and 868 chipsets may misreport the mapped memory used.
There is a chance that your Voodoo2 card will be assigned by
Plug and Play a memory range that is used by the S3 card, but
not reported. The Voodoo2 card can be relocated by:

Windows NT Users: An NT service called NTREMAP is
installed when Glide is added to an NT system.
NTREMAP can change the memory address of a Voodoo2
board and prevent a conflict with an S3 card.

To use NTREMAP, add the following registry values to:
\HKLM\Software\3Dfx Interactive\NTRemap

Value Name Type Value
---------- ---- -----
EnableNTRemap DWORD 1 (HEX)
ForceAddress DWORD 12000000 (HEX)

The Force Address setting will vary, in this example
0x12000000 is used. This is normally free on most
systems.

NOTE: If you use an address that over-writes another
device, Windows NT may not boot. If such a problem
occurs, power off the system and remove your Voodoo2.
Alter the registry to use a different memory range
(or remove the ForceAddress setting). Then Reinstall
the Voodoo2 card into your system.
