Re: Vmware DX11 support

in PC Emulation
I'm not sure what you are thinking to. If you want to run W98, then you sure aren't going to get newer directx (or any kind of acceleration that is). If you want to run dgvoodoo2 with normal new windowses.. Then what's even the point with respect to bare metal? As for star trek games, there are …

Re: 64bit replacement of ntvdm

in DOS
"Running 16 bit code" is just a subset of what you need for actual fully fledged DOS programs. In 64-bit mode, the only possible way to run some kind of real mode "on bare metal" is virtualization. Now, I would guess performance isn't really going to be 100% of "native vm86".. But close enough …

Re: 64bit replacement of ntvdm

in DOS
As noted in the winevdm documentation, 64 bit windows simply won't let you change the Local Descriptor Table. There's no way around it, so you can just hope for somebody to develop a fast enough recompiler, or use a VM (HAXM in ntvdmx64 ?). On the other hand.. Linux has no such limitation. If your …

Re: Vmware DX11 support

in PC Emulation
Lolwat, a Core 2 Quad can still play all but the very latest games (and usually not even for "strict performance" reasons, but just because some smartass thought it was smart to optimize for SSE4.2). And vice versa, if XP can even still run on baremetal.. With GPT and straight from UEFI, I don't see …

Re: Vmware DX11 support

in PC Emulation
DX12 is also available in W7 as of the last year, and it never had any link whatsoever with UWP. If any, it's a shame that this requires the latest and greatest version of Workstation (on top of the latest tools), thus leaving out <2010 hardware. I can just hope VirGL will work one day in windows.

Re: Wings Of Destiny (Psygnosis)

in Windows
So.. Like, putting aside I have spent far too much time trying to find what the actual developer ever did (and I could not even find a website eventually) Their slightly older game should be playable with dgVoodoo, at least in W7.

Re: Mortal Kombat Trilogy WinXP fix

in Windows
Splitting threads just makes people finding the old one on google remain clueless. .. I don't see the intrinsic problem with necroing if I'm actually completing the original discussion (rather than just "monkey asking for help"). EDIT: the message below this, on the other hand...

Mortal Kombat Trilogy WinXP fix

in Windows
Re: https://www.vogons.org/viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1741 So.. I hope I'm not doing the mother of all necroposting, but thanks to the Abandonia friends I found out still working links of the aforementioned Application Compatibility Toolkit patch. You can find it here or here . They are slightly different …

LET'S BUILD OUR OWN COMPRESSATI2 FROM SOURCES WITH BLACKJACK, HOOKERS AND EVEN NVIDIA CARD FORCING

Re: Far Cry

in Windows
CompressATI2, after checking with Hxd, had some function pointing to Compressonator. Another of its files moreover, mentions "ATI2" as a moniker for DXT_BC5/LATC/RGTC/3Dc textures. The last of these names, being indeed announced to have been added in patch 1.3 . So.. It seems relevant. My vote goes …
