FalconFly's Tip -
When using the AMD tweaked Quake 2 Version, replace both the contained MiniGL files opengl32.dll and 3dfxglam.dll with
the V1.47 (K6-2) or V1.49 (Athlon) respectively for further increased performance and 3dNow!-Support !

Overall Note -
The 3dfx MiniGL Drivers are suitable only for old Games, that have support for those.
There, it can offer maximum performance and is still the primary choice.

For fully OpenGL based Games, use the 3dfx OpenGL ICD, WickedGL or MesaFX instead.
