Prototype - shadows and Alt+Tab issue

I used modified DLL to run at the native resolution. I don't remember whether DLL mods were needed years ago to run at 1920x1080, when I had Radeon 4890 and Windows 7. So it's apparently a bit more problematic than I knew, PCGW says shadows don't work on AMD cards among other things. Might have been …

Re: indirect sound

in Windows
but that would also change your system's behavior for every game Actually, you still have to put game.exe.local file in its folder for the registry setting to be effective. You can build OpenAL Soft (on which DSOAL is based) with WASAPI support only. I do this way to avoid any possible problem :D …

Re: indirect sound

in Windows
The registry mod procedure ( https://www.indirectsound.com/registryIssues.html ) is still needed? Yes, that is still needed for those games that create the DirectSound interface using COM functions. Luckily this is a small percentage; most games just use the DirectSound functions. There is another …

Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 Remastered

in Milliways
I haven't followed CoD series since Call of Duty: Black Ops days, but randomly stumbled upon MW2 remaster they released not too long ago. First thing, it can only be bought on battle.net. I suppose that means having to use their software to download and probably run it as well? Second thing, I …

Re: Vmware DX11 support

if anyone is bored: vista 32bit + dgvoodoo2 :) On VMware? Any surprises when you try that? It's been a while, but at some point, VMware Tools update broke OpenGL on VMware on Windows Vista because the DLL implementing OpenGL started depending on a function that only exists in Windows 7+. Unless …

Re: Favourite 1996 games?

in Windows
Yup, one can always find things that could be done better, sometimes significantly better. I still find it crazy how software in general manages to work as well it does, so much stuff to write before anything interesting happens and things to look out for. I've spent some time patching some of my …

Re: Favourite 1996 games?

in Windows
I downloaded Mafia II Definitive Edition and holy crap, it's several times the size of the original, 64-bit, uses (slower) D3D11 renderer instead of D3D9 one, loading times are longer, physics effects are a bit glitchy, stutters a bit, even on consoles, positional audio seems inaccurate in places, …

Re: Doom95 under Windows 10

in Windows
I just tried Doom95 (the version with "Sky never changes in Doom II" bug) on Windows 10 1909. I used DxWnd , mouse patch and demo recording patch . It worked OK. It's interesting that game's own windowed mode didn't work. I could also connect two machines on LAN for multiplayer for which I used …

Re: The Need for Speed Special Edition for Windows doesn't work

in Windows
DirectPlay is not an issue. If on Windows 8 or later, install DirectPlay first from Control Panel->Programs and Features->Turn Windows features on and off. Duplicate dplayx.dll in Windows\SysWOW64 (or System32 if it's 32-bit OS) and name it dplay.dll, alternatively, you can make a hard link to the …
