where I live alone sell voodoo3 3000 (that it is the one that I have), so I don't have many options
Well, I tested on a Voodoo3 3000 PCI, and I didn't get the problem at all.
I've just checked my setup, and here is what I am running:-
Voodoo5 - 3dfx v1.04.01 Beta (latest files dated 21/11/2000, archive released 28/11/2000)
Voodoo3 - x3dfx v1.07.00-BETA (latest files dated 31/01/2001, archive released 31/01/2001)
I didn't realise I was still running the x3dfx drivers on my Voodoo3, but I guess I only ever run Glide on there, so never had a problem and have not had to regress them back (which I had to do with my Voodoo5).
Anyway, the Voodoo5 drivers were installed after
the Voodoo3 drivers, which means the Voodoo5 Glide3 driver was installed over the Voodoo3 Glide driver (in fact, all Glide files would have been replaced).
Try placing the Glide drivers from the Voodoo5 release above in the main emulator directory, put back the x3dfx drivers, and see if that cures the problem. In my config panel, you should see that the path to the Glide3 driver has changed, so that you know it is using it from the main emu directory, not \WINDOWS\SYSTEM.
This site here
seems to have a very comprehensive set of 3dfx drivers, so you can grab them from there.
