I'm trying to use dgVoodoo2 to run Crimson Skies on my computer. Major details seem to work great; there's no problem with in-play graphics. It uses D3D8.dll, D3DImm.dll, and DDraw.dll. I don't remember if it was DX7 or DX8, so I threw the D3D8 in there.
There is a text problem, unfortunately. At several different places, a series of RGB bars appear instead of text. They appear on the copyright page at launch, instead of a text profile name in the profile manager, and when you choose resolution in video, it displays the bars instead of the resolution text (e.g.: 1024x768). They also appear in custom loadouts, IIRC. I've been running CSFIX to set up a player profile, and then picking my profile blind when I use dgVoodoo.
I'm using dgVoodoo 2.63. I've gone through several updates hoping the text problem would be fixed, but after a year, I figure it might be a good time to ask.
Is there some setting that will cause the text to display properly? Is it a bug? Is this something that probably has an easy fix?
Thanks for your time, and the great Glide wrapper.
The picture is of the copyright page. The first is using CSFIX, which runs in native 32-bit color and messes up the picture, but the text is clear. The second is dgVoodoo 2.63.
