🤣, found a workaround: just force the UHD 750 as the GPU for the ut2004 exe in Windows.

Wonder why this is NOT needed for Unreal 2, Unreal 2 XMP and Pariah. Somehow UT 2004 sees the GeForce and want to run on that GPU through dgVoodoo2 too (and dgVoodoo2 *correctly* does't even list the GeForce) and of course is not possible in FL12 mode being a FL 11 GPU.
Hence the start up crash.

The OS-level forcing just solves the issue.

I had some cumulated minor fixings, now I've released them:

=========================
dgVoodoo 2.77:
=========================

- D3D8/9 fixings:
* Fixing an incompatibility of creating additional swapchains (Overlord 2)
* Implementing missing MSAA subpixel masking
* Implementing missing centroid modifier for ps2/3 input registers
* Fixing a bug in user ptr Draw-calls (Halo 2)
* Some new debug layer messages
- Adding virtual card Geforce 9800 GT to have one that is still D3D9.0c compatible but more practical because does not support all features like the default internal one (Overlord2, Raiden 3, ...)
- Fixing Glide3+ bugs (SurRender3D engine with Glide3)
- Fixing a DDraw blitter bug (Esk Emotion)

Halo2 works but the menu screen is full of ants on nVidia. 😁 I don't know why, it shouldn't be. The reference rasterizer and Intel is working. 🤔

About the *old* 2.76.1 I get this strange behaviour in Pariah with DX11, *NOT* present in DX12

DX11 (no action, just looking)

DX11 (after the execution of the blur effect/shader, activated by the sprint button, things go normal but just take a 360° turn and here come again)

The problem is of course the framerate (looking at the tower just @the starting point, near the vehicle, not even sprinting)

Thanks for new release!
PS - i have a question about integer scaler in dgv, for example when i tried it in Quest for Glory 5 mouse cursor become unusable/misaligned, any way to fix this??

Stupid bug in the lastest WIP about the dgv watermark.

If you create a NEW conf file or modify and OLD conf file ticking the watermark option.....there's no way to remove it in-game, it lasts forever!

Please dege, double-check the configurator (how it creates the conf files) AND the libraries (how they interpret them).

For the DX11 thing, I don't have idea. If you could share a savegame for the locations I could check it out.

For the config, is it really a WIP version? WIP's configuration and versioning is not necessarily compatible with released versions, in fact, usually you can only use a WIP with its own configurator.

And this is only an issue with integer scaling? Isn't it with, say, a plain resolution forcing?

The problem is in the 2.77 version (delete the conf and recreate it through the configurator), and NOT in the configurator or the file itself (file is correctly written as a text and you can read it and see "false") so it's how the DLL reads the file and shows the watermark (being "false" the entry in the conf).

It's just the starting point of the Communication Tower.

I only tested integer scaling in QFG5 without resolution scaling (unforced in settings), i don't know what i changed but now cursor is acting like normal but its smaller copy is still showing sometimes 🤣
PS - don't mind the resolution of the attachment (its actually in 2x integer scale), its just how i capture it with shadowplay..

Are you sure you aren't having another dgVoodoo dll with a previous version there? Or sg like that?
The dlls and the Cpl use the same lib for reading/writing the config file, so, if the Cpl can read back the written config, then the dlls should do too.
I did a quick try with 2.77 and the watermark was gone when I disabled it.
Btw, the dbg versions of the dll's and the Cpl reports where they read the config from, the version, etc.

Actually, the cursor indeed does not appear at the expected location with integer scaling...
I've just run into it, and fixed.
