Great finding and good idea/job.
Could you upload the original MACXW4 4.11.2582 (w9x_rpro_5386b6a.zip) package somwhere to my ATi 3D CIF driver archivum and for 3D CIF compatibility tests?
I would like to test it to see if it has the same errors in 3D CIF as the 4.11.2573 and comparing with this modded version too (by all compatible cards).
Of course i can, you can download it. w9x_rpro_5386b6a.zip driver was downloaded some time ago from driverguide site and other one from chinese site, that i do not remember. As i remember, with rage pro cards this 5386b6a driver worked well, xl/lt and wipeout maybe not, without any file change, but you have more experience here.
These two drivers are dx6.1 and also 3dcif compatible:
My goal would be put together as good as possible driver for ATi Rage that works well with 3DCIF, Direct3D and OpenGL. Of course it would be more limited with older drivers and the latest seems to be dx6.1 ones, but these Rage cards are also old and can work well in older systems (Celeron/Pentium II 300-400/K6-II/III+ 400-550) with voodoo1or2 and powervr card, like early 3D gaming machine (3in1). I already have similar setup with 3 cards in one pc, it is amd k6-II+ 400@500MHz 1.6v at the moment. XL card is better for power consumption, but rage pro tweaker 1.2 is not working very well with these older drivers, mostly it is little picky with XL cards and overclock option does not work with XL, Powerstrip can help, but i am not so much to overclocking. My first 3D videocard was ATi Rage Pro and i remeber playing NFS3 with it, it worked ok, CPU was Celeron 300A, the fast one.
Extra bonus would be, well working ATi DVD Player, i have 3.10 and 3.2 versions from older times and one even older that started to work good even with original K6 266MHz MMX , no 3DNow, but that with Rage128Pro, not Rage Pro. Need to check, how they work.
I would like to find older verision of rage pro tweaker, this one maybe. If someone has, i would be glad.
3D-Demo i did get from Rage Pro Tweaker 1.2 and i just found one older version of it, Public Release 1:

Also, i have not done much for this w82582en driver, mostly your xl r3 files, but direct3d seems to work quite well, even better than 4.11.601 7 HAL, that should be fast Direct3D version. 3dmark 1999 does not work with any macxw4 driver or it is my pc setup question? What Direct3D test would be good to use? For OpenGL i have used Quake II some time ago and 1077 seems to be working well, for newer games maybe 1094 is better, but also slower. Ok for now, already big post for one driver link 😀
