Are there 3rd party 3dfx drivers?

I'm using the 1.04.00 drivers with dx8 support for Win2k, but in Anarchy Online, the textures are totally messed up and I keep getting some blue screen errors for my 3dfxvs32.dll file and since 3dfx doesn't really exist anymore, getting drivers is hard. I am waiting to hear back from Funcom though... maybe they will patch it so my graphics work and the game don't crash everytime it's busy.

I thought it was just that this game is really unstable.

Im now trying the Omega drivers... we'll see what they give. The game is a bit buggy in parts, but other than bad performance in town and busy areas, it works very well.


Well, tried them, the game looks exactly alike and still crashes so I guess they don't work for this one

sorry it did not help
