ENBSeries game modifications
ENBSeries is 3d graphic modification for games like TES Skyrim, GTA 4, GTA San Andreas, Deus Ex HR, FSX, and many others. It work by modifying render functions calls of the games and applying additional effects.

ENBSeries divided to generic versions and exclusive. First category allow to run it on thousands of games, not all effects will work, but you can try several versions of mod to find best suited. Second, exclusive types of the mod, are games specific versions which developed to work with some game and rarely with same game engine.

ENBSeries have SSAO, SSIL, Depth Of Field, Lenz FX, Bloom, HDR, Tone Mapping, Sharpening, Vignette, Sun Rays, Shadows, Detailed Shadows, Reflection and other effects in various versions of it.

Notably:
Convertor is a special library which translate one graphic technology functions to another. These software is very rare, but some other developers did same kind convertors, but for different purposes. Common practice is to use convertor for compability with modern hardware and operational systems, but mine are only for applying graphic effects to old games. The simplest convertor is DirectX8 to DirectX9 (actually direct3d8 to direct3d9), all others much more complex, so i'm not in hurry to do them.

TitaniumGL, an OpenGL wrapper/replacement that wraps OpenGL 1.4 to Direct 3D, comes in both a hardware-accelerated and software-accelerated form. The hardware-accelerated version has apparently been released for Windows 98 (for the first time). Version 2013_08.
http://titaniumgl.tk

Also released:
TitaniumGL software renderer version 2013_08 for Linux
TitaniumGL software renderer version 2013_08 for Windows/ReactOS

TitaniumGL for Windows XP and higher, hardware acceleration version 2013_08 has yet to be released...

D3D9Wnd - a Direct3D 9-based W:A windowed mode and multimon! (Worms Armageddon)
http://www.dream17.info/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=387


Hello.
Me and Kawoosh want to present you a windowed mode made using the native Direct3D 9 renderer, which allows some brilliant features, as well as no lags and full FPS (no emulator), stretching of the window, unpinning/pinning mouse from the game window, playing the game on several monitors at once, producing and streaming full HD videos and screenshots on any monitor and system.

The way of windowing the Direct3D 9 mode was originally found and written by Kawoosh, and then I extended it with some fixes and features:
Stretched mode: enable "Stretch" for needed places in ini. It is still windowed mode, but here it is enlarged to fill your screen in full, and looks just the same as if you were in fullscreen. This is especially useful if your monitor doesn't support 640×480 (and you want fullscreen) or if you plan on speeding up your game (by not having to wait until your monitor switches the resolution): instant return to frontend after the game has ended, instant minimization, ability to set the resolution higher than your own, etc. NOTE: on some GPUs there may be need to enable smoothing if you enlarge from a smaller window to prevent pixelation.
Multi-Monitor support: enable W:A to display the game spanned across several monitors, placed either vertically or horizontally, in either frontend and/or in-game. With AutoSetResolution enabled, the resulting summed up in-game resolution will automatically be set in WA settings on every launch. When using stretched or fullscreen frontend mode, enabling the Multi-Mon in either in-game or frontend will not clip your cursor in the frontend area. NOTE: performance has to be considered when enabling this option. Your hardware, mainly CPU and GPU, should be supporting it well not to allow any lags during the gameplay. Limitations: the display mode has to be "Extend" instead of "Double". The primary monitor has to be on the left for horizontal setups, or on top for vertical setups. For more than 2 monitors, they should go in numerical order (but maybe not, it's up to you to see it). Square setups (double on double) are currently partially supported, but can be looked into later if needed. Maximum texture size supported by your GPU is the limit for the total resolution from summing up all of the monitors' resolutions (if you exceeded the limit, WA will tell you and perform a workaround). Differently-sized monitors are supported but not recommended: it's up to you to decide whether to leave empty space by making the smaller monitor primary or, otherwise, cut a few lines by using the bigger one as primary. At least half of the height (or width in vertical setups) must collide with the monitor on the left; if it doesn't then you probably don't want multi-monitors.
Unpin and pin the mouse: a feature requested by someone to be able to unpin the mouse in-game and move it over WA's window. This can be useful for border (see below).
Ctrl+G to unpin or pin the mouse.
Active Background: available in both Windowed and Stretched modes. Allows to view the gameplay even when the window is not in focus. This is permanently enabled for non-aero users as a fix.
Use the respective setting under the InGame settings of the ini file, or press Ctrl+H during gameplay to enable Active Background
Run frontend on background: a feature to prevent the frontend menus from self-minimizing when switching to another window. When it is enabled, the frontend will keep running in background. Can be switched using the "RunInBackground" setting under [FrontendSettings].
Custom frontend size and frontend centering: options to customize frontend position and size, but eating the mouse.
Window border in-game and quick info: allows to have a window border around the window. Using the previously mentioned unpinning feature you are able to move the in-game window.
Use WindowBorder=1 in the InGame section to enable this. Use Ctrl+D to quickly enable/disable this directly during gameplay.
There's also a possibility to show quick information by enabling QuickInfo=1 in the InGame section. Some quick infos like the ingame resolution, mouse pinned state, topmost state and other things can be shown in there in realtime.
And of course, I made the module intelligent to prevent sillies from running into issues.

Unlike wndmode, D3D9Wnd works only with 3.7.0.0 and 3.7.2.1, including Steam (works with both), because it uses native renderer and depends on hardcoded offsets which control D3D9CreateStart.

http://rayer.g6.cz/programm/programe.htm

SERREN.EXE ver. 1.0 [56 kB] (CWSDPMI not needed - includes CWSDSTUB) - a small utility for enabling the PCI SERR# to CPU NMI routing via proper setting of intel ICHx chipset. On some motherboards / BIOSses this routing is disabled. This cause malfunction of SoundBlaster Live! DOS drivers. This condition is mandatory but not sufficent (on my mobo GA-P31-DS3L after enabling the SERR# to NMI routing started to work MIDI and Adlib playback but SFX is still mute - probably some kind of DMA problem).



This utility was mentioned in another thread on this forum.

IndirectSound:
IndirectSound emulates audio hardware acceleration on modern Windows operating systems. This enables older games to have 3D positional audio (i.e. surround sound played out of rear and side speakers) like they were intended to when they were originally released.

NonMess
http://nonmess.retrogames.com/

It's quite simple, really. This site endeavors to capture the best emulator for any given system including MESS itself. Lots of research with developers, discussions with the user community, and countless hours of testing have gone into making this site what it is, so you don't have to. Another nice benefit to this site is to aid MESS developers in understanding what resources currently exist, that they may be tapped for assistance.

I remember back in the day using AXCEL216's MAX SPEED @ http://members.aol.com:80/axcel216 a lot for DOS memory and such. I was afraid it was gone forever until I found some of the old stuff from 2008 on http://web.archive.org. Then this morning by accident I stumbled on his new hosting site http://www.mdgx.com/. This is a treasure trove of information and I am sure a lot of you are aware of it.

It has lots of information for DOS, Windows, 3Dfx, utilities, and really just way too much to mention. A definitely must read website in my opinion!

I wonder how this will affect Paypal's money back policies if you aren't satisfied with your purchase if they no longer have direct control over Paypal? How can they guarantee refunds if Paypal won't co-operate?

They can send you money. It won't appear as a "refund" but just "funds received", which means that it will reside in your Paypal account (instead of being refunded to whatever payment method you used originally), and will be subject to some fees.
