The 3dfx Interactive Voodoo Series is a collection of next generation 3D FX solutions which use an exterior pass through cable that connects to an already set video card on a PC. To install the 3dfx Interactive Voodoo Series Driver the necessary hardware connections need to have done including an SLI connection with two similar voodoo 2 cards which are connected via an inner data cable. When installing the driver MS Direct X 9.0 has to be installed and the system re-booted. Later versions of MS Direct X 9.0 can also be used. The downloaded file should then be clicked on and the software unzipped. If there are any previous Voodoo 2 drivers, they should be removed from the control panel. The system is then re booted and Windows should now be able to detect the Voodoo 2 card if there is a request to search for a driver click the cancel button. The set up file located in the driver file should be double clicked and the instructions followed. After this the system needs to be rebooted again.
