Every time I try to run a program that uses DirectX 7.0, I get an awful set of green colors in the screen. The program appears to run fine, except of course for his "grass-like" colors.
Recently, I was informed that I need the newest drivers for DirectX 7, because the older ones were not compatible. So I looked in 3Dfxgamers and downloaded the LATEST drivers for my card. Those drivers were the same that Quake III installed on my machine. After installing them, every thing that uses DirectX 7 hangs up my machine when running (a strange blue plain screen shows and nothing more). I uninstalled those drivers from my system, and then installed the old ones, and everything became the same (DirectX 6 or older games run well, DirectX 7 games run with ugly green colors). What should I do? I looked in www.3dfx.com
for drivers for Monster 3D 1 (Voodoo 1) DirectX 7 compliant and didn't found them. It is possible that 3dFx just 'forgets' older models of Vodoo? And why the newest drivers that i downloaded from www.3dfxgamers.com
didn't work out?
Note 1: I HAVE installed DirectX 7.0a on my machine, and didn't work out.
Note 2: I OWN a card with VODOO 1 Chipset, not Vodoo 2.
Note 3: My machine is a K62-350 Mhz with two video cards: a PCI S3 Trio 64 for 2D and a Diamond Monster 3D for 3D and 32 MB of RAM
