Re: A3d Alchemy Not Working in Windows 10

in Windows
There's an alternative a3d.dll floating around the net you can use instead of the one that comes with A3D-Live, A3Dx5, supposedly developed by Creative. The latest version I found (80.0.0.5) is included with older unofficial patches for Interstate '76 Nitro Pack because it solves a critical sound …

Re: NFS High Stakes D3D6 mode

in Windows
From the modern patch's readme, changes to DX6 renderer are minimal. When it comes to visuals, it says fog support is restored and dithering is disabled by default for 16-bit modes, which would get you faithful 16-bit look without tricks to try improve the quality given the limitation of available …

Re: What sound card do you use on your modern PC ?

in Milliways
The thought about getting a dedicated sound card did cross my mind at times, but one thing that's not clear is if I would gain anything with it when it comes to how it would sound compared to onboard VIA VT1708B I currently use. Would it make any difference when paired with headphones like …

Re: Far Cry

in Windows
Creative ALchemy doesn't support 64-bit games. There was some talk about building 64-bit version of DSOAL on its GitHub project issues page , so it's supposedly buildable, but you might have to compile it yourself unless someone provides the binaries. I only know of Vaporeon site providing 32-bit …

Re: Help me fix interstate '76 gold?

in Windows
The actual reason the game crashes there is that one function that calls HeapCreate also stores the handle to the newly created heap in the variable holding the handle to another already existent heap, overwriting it. So certain function calls dealing with memory allocation were specifying the …

Re: Interstate '76

in Windows
I Googled for Interstate '76 Windows 2000 and this thread was the first result, so I thought I'd leave the link for the patch I made few months back here. Back when Windows XP was the most used OS, I had no clue how to get it running. Even if you figured out how to get past the hang related to sound …

Re: ID tech 4 nvidia driver slowmotion bug.

in Milliways
I don't have a high-end card, just a GTX 750 Ti, currently using driver version 430.86 on Windows 10. Only FPS takes a hit at 16x AA, nothing goes out of sync. I personally don't see the reason to use AA in this game as I find it looks pretty sharp without it. For certain other games, when it comes …

Re: Display mode changes on DirectX 7 and earlier on Windows 10

in Windows
You might have had a different issue (or maybe the same issue manifests differently depending on some other factors). It can can be tested with the help of Process Hacker by opening dwm.exe process, opening DWM_DX_FULLSCREEN_TRANSITION_EVENT on the Handles tab then removing permissions on Security …

Re: Display mode changes on DirectX 7 and earlier on Windows 10

in Windows
There was an issue for the longest time from Windows 8 which seems to have been fixed in Windows 10 version 1809 (the same one that also deleted user documents when being upgraded to for users that had Documents folder redirected to another location if I remember correctly). At least from my …

Re: Quake 1 no music?

in Windows
I'm not sure if any Windows source port fixes issues with music playback from CD. Even original Windows executables don't support volume control, I guess because MCI interface that was used doesn't neither (some games of the time do try to change it via alternate paths, though these don't work today …

Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
Regarding Steam version issues - is there a way to delete saved game from GUI? Also 3D sound support is missing. It can be added back with MetaHook plugin MetaAudio , which shouldn't be used online because MetaHook is a gateway to modify engine operation at runtime, which again, is against rules. If …

Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
Though changing the FPS limit can also prevent scientists/player from getting hurt, or simply standing at the different spot inside the elevator. While the NPC twitching a lot while the elevator is moving seems like a consistent occurrence, them being killed isn't, even with the same settings. It …

Re: Half-Life WON 1.0.1.6 Pause Menu Issue

in Windows
Physics got wonkier with later patches to the engine, Blue-Shift elevator glitch doesn't occur in the original release of the game. It happens if you use Blue-Shift: Unlocked, the installer that takes your old Blue-Shift installation and coverts it to a mod for Half-Life version 1.1.1.0 and later. …
