Lucky-star VIA MVP3+Voodoo2+SbLive!
I have a Lucky-Star VIA MVP3 ATX Motherboard
and I recently bought PowerColor's Evilking
Voodoo 2 accelerator and SbLive Value soundcard. I've been having few problems with
First, Voodoo2: Didn't seem to work in just any PCI slot. After some tests I moved it to
Slot 1 and it started to perform a bit better, but still it doesn't work as it should in Unreal, for example. 640 x 480 resolution looks faultless and clear, but when I switch to 800 x 600, somekind of odd
"interference" starts to show up. the picture
looks a bit the same if you haven't tuned a
channel in your TV set _exactly_ correctly.
I suppose Voodoo 2 cards use only one Processor in 640 x 480 mode. I have already changed the first card to a new one, but the
problem still occurs. I'm using Matrox Mystique as my 2D adapter.
Second, SbLive!: I do not know if it is the
Voodoo 2 card or SbLive that are causing Unreal to crash frequently. I have downloaded newest drivers for SbLive! too.
Also there is a problem with SbLive! and Win98 system sounds, which somehow are left to repeat themselves on background untill you
reset the computer. I have played *.Wavs in both WinAmp and Mediaplayer, which worked fine.
I have also downloaded an update for Mediaplayer which is supposed to patch Win98's sound and video capabilities a bit.
So, if anyone has personal experience or anykind of information about these problems or this configuarion, Please reply.
I have been fighting with this problem for few weeks now, upgrading and testing, but nothing seems to work.
Once more, I would be very grateful for _anykind_ of information about this.
