The aim is a software implementation of the voodoo1 (SST-1) chip. Documentation mainly comes from SST-1 official specs, found on this page.
The card seem correctly recognized (that was the easy part)
The chip is programmed through memory-mapped i/o, the code framework for chip registers handling is already in place (no reg is actually handled yet).
If you're wondering why dosbox should have this, well, voodoo chip emulation would virtually give:
- higher compatibility with titles (even those with integrated .ovl)
- integration with dosbox internal renderer: full-screen, different output modes and video capture would be supported
- no need of external libs
- d3d support for win9x games !!!
I'm looking for people that want to help; please post any comment on this thread.
