Re: Boxedwine (Wine on multiple platforms)

Forgot to reply, but I did test that winecfg finally as you mentioned it, though it had been awhile since I'd done the dynamic library override and at the time I'd not figured out which dlls to get music working if at all. It could be boxedwine needs me to override more than just one dll, like the …

Re: Boxedwine (Wine on multiple platforms)

Yeah I did in fact install the nglide wrapper and the Glide renderer still performed terribly. Now I have heard of the D3D renderer being buggy from even a former developer themselves, but I was unaware of people finding the 1.2 version being less buggy. I might try that (potential differences of …

Re: Boxedwine (Wine on multiple platforms)

What was the speed of your computer? I have an i7-4790k, which is not a slouch of a CPU, but I think alot of modern emulators hate it. Also if RDTSC can at least fix Gunmetal that would be amazing. I'm sad Requiem was acting weird. It performs fine in modern windows but is a PITA to record in OBS …

Re: Boxedwine (Wine on multiple platforms)

In Windows I tried using Boxedwine with Requiem: Avenging Angel (1999), and Gunmetal (1998). The former runs fine until I get into the game proper then the performance tanks, and Gunmetal is kind of infamous for running too fast on modern machines and strangely ran too fast in the menus, then the …

Re: Gunmetal (1998) Rendering Issues

It runs terrible for me, but I briefly had tested 3DFX emulation in PCem and actually I think people might've been mistaken about how the fog effect was supposed to work in certain levels. Regardless, I can provide saves to confirm that there is still the rendering issue when in areas containing fog …

Gunmetal (1998) Rendering Issues

I've taken to messing with this game recently, and I've had tons of issues on the actual playing the game front, but for this thread I want to make aware some major graphical issues in the game's 3DFX rendering mode when utilizing dgVoodoo 2. First of all is the fact that for some reason, Gunmetal …

Re: Mouse issue Defiance (1997)

Despite actually speedrunning this game myself, I didn't realize there was a patch out there. Can't find any update notes on what it fixed though. I've always had mild mouse issues with this game, but the only crashes I consistently experience is a random crash on the final level depending on which …

Re: Welcome to the updated VOGONS

I'm sorry but I'm not sure where else to post this. Despite having been modestly active off and on with these forums, my ability to send private messages is still disabled. Which is crazy because I was able to send messages when I first joined the forums. Any explanation for that? Thanks.

Re: Lithtech game performance

in Windows
wrt mouse issues, I've found the general best way to fix it is to set a game's mouse sensitivity in the autoexec.cfg (or whatever the game titles it) very low until you're no longer having jitter problems, and in later lithtech games, to raise smoothness settings. combine this with making sure the …

Re: Do these Windows Glide games exist?

in Windows
Wanted to note as someone who has been messing with it for awhile, Skout was not a glide accelerated game. I think that is a erroneous claim from Mobygames because the developers and press at the time both heavily pushed the use of the Voodoo 2 with the game (it uses DirectX 6-7), even though upon …

Re: Lith-tech compatibility

in Windows
To specify further, it's rare to have two games running on the same version of Lithtech to have compatible lithtech.exe files. I can only think of like one example, and it's a handful of budget titles from around the same time, from the same developer. This is due to the way in which Lithtech games …

Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

Well that does fix the color issues in the menus and videos, but all other issues persist. The game crashes when trying to open the D3D version in Dxwnd, so I had to write off playing it with that sorta... Except in the case of music, because Dxwnd is the only program out there with seemingly …
