Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

Remembering that I could play Sentinel Returns in stereoscopy with Windows XP and dgVoodoo v1.40+, I downloaded that version and attempted another strategy: dgVoodoo v1.40+ would translate Glide calls to DirectX 7, while dgVoodoo 2 would translate DirectX 7 calls to DirectX 11. However, that didn't …

Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

ReShade on it's own can't use the depth-buffer if Anti-Aliasing is enabled at all, something to do with how Anti-Aliasing works and where ReShade is trying to inject into or something. I can't remember where I came across this information, it was a long time ago when SweetFX and ReShade were new …

Re: dgVoodoo 2 for DirectX 11

Last year I wanted to play Sentinel Returns in stereoscopy, so I used dgVoodoo to wrap the Glide calls of that game to DirectX 11, and ReShade with the SuperDepth3D.fx shader to read the depth buffer and create two stereoscopic views. However, I noticed that doing so provided no 3D effect at all, …

Does an nVidia NV-1 wrapper exist?

I have recently discovered the existence of an nVidia video card, made in the 1990s that rendered scenes using quads instead of triangles, and for which a handful of games were made, among which Virtua Fighter, as shown in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VK9sg_93iCE This made me curious …

V2000: how do I change the renderer to Direct3D?

V2000 is a game made in 1998 by Frontier Developments, which is supposed to have both a software rendering mode and a Direct3D rendering mode. However, I seem to be unable to switch from software mode to Direct3D mode. If I select "Direct3D" from the in-game graphics menu, the scene does not change …

Re: Incoming on XP and GeForce 7600 does not start

I'm upping this topic to post a problem I had and how I solved it. The image was flickering annoyingly during gameplay, then I discovered that to avoid the flickering I had to... disable the music. That's right: the action of reading music from the CD interfered with the display and caused it to …

Re: How do I run Screamer 2 on a modern system?

in DOS
so if he has a win98 system why doesnt he just double click on the s2 shortcut instead of messing around with dosbox and vdmsound Sure, I could do just that, if I didn't mind the hassle of booting up the damn thing every time I want to play that game (as opposed to having ONE computer to run ALL my …

Re: How do I increase the resolution in Pac-Man World 3?

I emailed him, and he told me that the game comes with an external utility that changes the resolution. If he is telling the truth, then my copy is bad since I have nothing of the sort. Anyway, if anyone who reads this post owns a good copy of the game, and it actually includes that utility, that …

Re: How do I increase the resolution in Pac-Man World 3?

I was thinking: if there was a program that allows me to run the executable step by step and see what is being executed in each step, I could see when the function bStartDisplay is executed and what parameters are passed to it, then manually change the parameters to force the game to run at a higher …

How do I increase the resolution in Pac-Man World 3?

I don't know if Pac-Man World 3 already qualifies as an "old game", but, since I've only been able to run it at 640x480, it certainly looks like one. :neutral: So, I install the game and the only executable I get is the game executable itself: no configuration utility whatsoever. If I run the game …

Can Formula 1 97 be installed on a modern machine?

I found Formula 1 97 for sale, but before deciding to buy it or not, I need to know: can it be installed on a modern machine (which does not have a 3DFX card)? I know of at least one game which tries to detect a 3DFX card during installation, and if none is found, the game is not installed (F1 …
