Roland CX-300 64-bit Windows 7/8 driver fix!

Last week I got a call from someone who couldn’t give me much specific information, except that some application wasn’t installing, and that “it kept saying it needs Win32.” Yesterday I had a chance to check it out, expecting that we would just need to download the proper 32 or 64 bit version of the software.

I was recently digging through an archive of old 3dfx files that were sent to me more than a decade ago. I don’t even recall who sent them anymore, but there was a treasure trove of internal documentation from within the walls of 3dfx Interactive, Inc. Among them included planning documents to take advantage of new features in the then upcoming DirectX 8 APIs, an audit-list of who has which test Voodoo 5 5500 card, benchmark results from hours of testing, lists of software used for testing, and much, much more Continue reading “"New" details surface about the never released 3dfx Rampage”
