General Information

Please keep in mind that's your own risk to flash a fully working card. I take no responsibility for any damage to hard- and/or software.

3dfx Flash

3dfx Flash is the successor of USERFLSH and based on its code. Version 1.xx can be used for flashing Voodoo Banshee graphic cards.
For newer cards (Voodoo3+) only version 2.xx should be used. For flashing the newest prototypes (Daytona) you must use the newest version since the needed support was added with version 2.16.
