Re: Half-Life Performance Issues

Sigh... There is no Glide renderer for Half-Life, there's miniGL support. If it works in... "Glide" for you, then it should probably work in OpenGL as well. Half-Life was written with Software and OpenGL renderers in mind and D3D was added late in development for compatibility, as by late 1998 not …

Re: Half-Life Performance Issues

Wonder if AGP cards will do any better, will try my GF3 Ti This will not help. The game is not GPU bound, unless you're trying to play it at super high resolutions on that Voodoo3. I suspect that even at 1024x768, the V3 should be able to maintain 60fps with the game. Your issue is the CPU, the K6 …

Re: Half-Life Performance Issues

There ain't much that can be done. Half-Life is just that slow once you get into firefights. Perhaps there's some console command that disables something that takes up CPU cycles. I had a go with the game on a PII 350 recently, played through Uplink once again and yeah performance is shit with a …

Re: Rendition Verite Thread

Some games actually made use of higher res textures than most 3D accelerators supported at the time. MDK comes to mind, which makes the software version preferable to the Glide and D3D version on most cards. I think it used 512x512 textures? Funnily enough, MDK2 which was created by a different …

Re: Tell us about your 3DFX collection

My favorite build is my Voodoo 5 Shuttle: Dude... Do you have a thread showcasing this? It looks great! As for me: Voodoo1 4MB (Diamond Monster3D) Voodoo2 12MB SLI (Guillemot MaxiGamer 2 + Orchid Righteous 2) Voodoo Banshee PCI (Creative CT6750) Voodoo 3 3000 AGP Voodoo 3 3000 PCI Voodoo 5 5500 AGP …

Re: poor preformance

Well, at stock speeds, the GF3 Ti200 might actually be more in line with some of the faster GeForce2 offerings. You have to keep in mind, with later drivers and faster CPUs, the 8500 is actually closer to the GF4 Ti cards than it is to GF3 cards, so it actually makes sense that the 8500LE would beat …

Re: poor preformance

PC600 RDRAM is not especially fast and that CPU is certainly worse off than the 2GHz part Errius is using. Which card do you have exactly? Perhaps it is downclocked slightly compared to other Ti200 cards, but I doubt it, could just be a case of Willamette being slow. I have the same board with a 1. …
