Sacred 2
Lots of rendering problems. Also sort of bad performance.

dgVoodoo debug version seems to have less problems but might be just my imagination.

I posted something but it's gone.

Just like the demo version, the retail version has texture issues. The game world looks fine.

Total Overdose:

The world is green.

Does anyone know how to get thirteenag's widescreen to fix with Total Overdose? I'm using the retail version but dragging and dropping things doesn't seem to work, the game refuses to boot.

Alias: The Game
Works, but complains that it can't create VMR9 instance whenever it tries to play videos (native is fine) and requires some weird modes added to ExtraEnumeratedResolutions, playing at 1280x720 i had to check the log to find this:

ERROR: Direct3D9 (0BC2E7B8): Validation of D3D9 swapchain presentation parameters failed. Reason: display mode "1276x716, 60Hz" is required but not supported by output device: 0, DeviceType : D3DDEVTYPE_HAL

Like it somehow ended up trying to compensate for window borders while setting display mode. Adding that as a supported resolution and:

Yeah, that seems to be more than a single 'lag'.
I've put a lot of effort into avoiding lagging/stuttering caused by shader compositing.
It's not perfect because not every case can be handled well, but games like FEAR, Lego Star Wars, etc. are now running pretty smooth. So, we'll see.

BTW, an other thing is tending to be needed for more and more games: float textures and rendertargets. I think I'm going to implement them.

OK, I've made sure I'm using a stock config for F.E.A.R now and found a glitch.

Works great in the race sim games I care most about GTR2 and GTL. Reflection are better sky and lights looks better only the rain fog is missing so kind of clear while raning.
Race 07 got issues due to a shadow Zbuffer but the shaders can be disables.
AMS (Automobilista) kind of works the sky is black. No textures rendered

Any chance to get 2048 and 4096Mb Vram?
Larger tracks slow down quite a lot.

You can type in whatever value you want.

Thanks didn't know that.
Can't get it to accept higher than 2048Mb. Got 8192Mb
Not even sure it helped but have left it at 2048Mb anyway.

World of Goo (Humble Bundle version 1.30), a DX7/9 game, works flawlessly with WIP53, though it doesn't truly benefit from resolution scaling.

The game uses a mix of DX9 and DX7; running without the DX7 DLLs results in a fatal error, and running with just the DX7 DLLs prevents dgVoodoo2 from hooking.

EDIT: Forgot to mention the "FreeMouse" variable must be true in either the global or local dgVoodoo2 config file; otherwise, the mouse is locked to the pre-scaled resolution.

Good catch! But why?

The FreeMouse variable has to be set somewhere. If the user hasn't setup a dgVoodoo2 config file in the game's directory, then the global dgVoodoo2 config file has to be edited. The latter is woefully inefficient (what if the user has more than one game dgVoodoo2 hooks?), but I thought I'd mention it for completeness.
