Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

I had this crackling once, but then never happened again, in q2 engine game. Changed sound from high to low and back to high and went away. For drivers I test mostly in XP, cus I have everything setup there and its easy just to pump new versions out and copy them. Only for "release" then I go win98 …

Re: Retro Rig Photo Thread

At this point, 2022... Does it really matter where you enter game.exe or doubleclick that icon? No it does not. You adapt to the hardware/software if theres some incompatibility with drivers and thats about it, unless someone wants to argue they preffer 2k over xp cus they daily drive it. All your …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

Yes I did add that sentence at the end, sharper alphablending is the way to go. The card really has nice image quality, up to a point. For q3 and beyond, you can get better with 32bit and aa and af with other cards, but for 16bit titles, it just renders such a nice picture. Its really a joy to play …

Heretic II Game really gave me a hard time with all the lockups and crashing. Had to disable a3d, limit to 83fps and not use the usual oc on the card, now it seems it will let me play :) (oh compression, did I really get so lucky to deserve max 7 colors) glide0002.png glide0025.png glide0019.png …

I was at a friends house, he had a laptop (I had no pc at that time), we played Death rally. I really really needed to pee, but i also wanted to finish the race. So I finished the race...

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

Looked at the method that does this, doesnt say anything about dithering/undithering, but it does combine buffers and corrects gamma from values in dac. Dont know what exacly the filter on dacs side does, sure someone can add some more info. But I dont see much difference on screen or those …

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

3dfx added screen capture(hwcAAScreenShot) that combines all 4 buffers, to the driver, so you get outputed what you see on screen. This is how it was captured. Some loss is because I converted it from tga to png, but to show the difference between the two, its enough. https://www.beyond3d.com/ …

Rune! I got this game with the gpu, at that time. Not bad, but didnt really blow me away, think I got about half way through, got lost and just said fuck it. Well I guess my taste changed, one of the best melee hack and slash games I played! Enjoyed it from start to finish. https://www.youtube.com/ …

Re: Vortex 2 in Windows 2000.

Try this http://www.opendrivers.com/download/driver-17897.html Theres a .doc how to install. Not sure for your usecase, but it makes the a3d work and you get the control panel. It (atleast on my config) introduces some crackling with a3d in some games.

Re: The Changeling 3dfx Voodoo 5 5500

Alpha blending! I always forget whats the "best" setting between sharper and smoother. In all cases, filtering quality was set to High, glide api for the game. As far as I read online High filtering quality and Sharper alpha blending enables the 3dfx ""22bit"" post process filter(looking at the …
