Re: Software rendering <> DirectDraw

Can a 3D game (3D as in Gothic, Unreal, Quake) run on DirectDraw without using Direct3D? Some can, other's cannot. It depends on whether the game offers DirectDraw as a rendering option. Generally, when selecting DirectDraw instead of Direct3D, you get no 3D acceleration, no texture filtering, no …

Re: Software rendering <> DirectDraw

Ah, alright, so that means that DirectDraw always works together with Direct3D and the terms are more or less exchangable for 3D games because the one wont do anything without the other? No, they aren't interchangeable. Diablo 2 has both a DirectDraw and a Direct3D mode. Of the two, only the latter …

Re: CT4520 AWE64 Value SPK/LINE Header

That is definitely gonna hide at least one resistor in the heatshrink. Other factor is that the Coax device receiving a TTL signal is not required to survive being subjected to the possibly much higher voltage level (depending on how much current the source can push into the 75ohm termination), it …

Re: CT4520 AWE64 Value SPK/LINE Header

Just straight through adapter like that is not a good way. The chip output is not at all meant to drive a 75ohm load of SPDIF coax connection and will have to dissipate excessive current, there's also no ESD protection so you may kill the output when connecting/disconnecting the cable. The very …
