Asghan: The Dragon Slayer - possible can use S3D , ATI 3D CIF, Matrox MSI, since it contains DLL's for that APIs.

Dll files this has in its game folder, i see ATi 3dcif.dll, but no exe file for that ATi CIF, exe files are for 3dfx, directx 3d and for 2d version, at least version 0.37 of the game is like that. Strange that they have the files, but no execute files, to use all these features.

Well, Asghan uses glide2x but have glide1x dlls (glide.dll, sst1init.dll) on the game CD. For what purpose? Because WE CAN! 😀
So "there is a dll" isn't the correct method to detect.

P.S. Joint Strike Fighter and Speedboat Attack (the V2 patch) install glide1x dlls too.

Rendermorphics Reality Lab

Somehow I missed that Gona had acquired Criterion RenderWare release 1.3 and Rendermorphics Reality Lab demos for Matrox MGA Athena (Impression Plus/Lite) in 2018:

I don't know, i know Rendition Quake can remove dithering, for PowerVR or other probably possible trough Registry editing. Question really dificult.

Re: Fun with CGL (Creative Graphics Library) on 3D Blaster

Starfighter 3000 probably can use CGL

"/3dblaster"parameter exist in full version too as in demo.

strings in exe "\HOTCGL" "Error #%d loading CGL modules" "CGL successfully loaded" "HOTCGL" "*.cgl"

Where is all green text for the exclusives? To me every entry is the same white.

Forum software upgrade nuked the colours! I think you can still see them on Wayback.

I've replaced green text (which does not display any longer) with italic.

I've also started the work with replacing the dead dropbox links (and others), but that is a larger task.

Also on TO-DO is to test and verify the list/games by Raven-05.

All of the patches I have here:
https://gona.mactar.hu/3D/files/

But I have no pictures at all. I have attached what I have.
If you send me the pictures too, I will upload them and all links you can replace to "https://gona.mactar.hu/3D/files/XYZ".

Cheers Gona. I was planning on using the archive.org links from the old pictures (some already implemented), but I guess I can send them to you and it'll be quicker since I can just use replace function on the domain 😀
