LGR's 3D Blaster VLB video is up: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=18W_LBNg2_8

Great video! And I like too that he mentions Vetz and the 3D Accelerated Games List topic.

Awesome video 😀

I didn't expect to be mentioned three times in that video. After furan and stiletto gave me a heads up I got in contact with Clint and I helped him out with some info and the bundle.

I just cross my fingers this video brings out someone with that memory board, would really like to see it in action.

Interesting with Starfighter 3000. I'll see if I can setup my Socket 5 VLB system (where I intend to really see were that bottleneck is) and give SF3000 a go. Would be great to add it to the list of supported games!

Which menu has you started? How get you exactly textures? (I press space three times and the game starts.)

Glad you got it running - I looked around the menu without running it using /3dblaster, and tried some of those things while I was running it with /3dblaster. Everything was so blocky, that I'm honestly not sure if I ever got textures.

I have tried to switch to the low resolution by F9 in the demo version without /3dblaster. It has done, than I have exited and start with /3dblaster. I planned to set to low res here too, but now starts in low res by default. And at last I see something, but everything (which works) looks full the same as the normal 2D in low res (but with bugs):

I have tested VLB again and the same:

Note that the sky is full missing, the starry sky remained from the launch mission background.

Than I have tested the not-demo version the same way: 2D set low res, exit, but with /3dblaster starts in high res. I have tried switch to low res in game by pressing F9 but I got full black screen... It is interesting, because uses the driver but really undeveloped the 3D Blaster part. In the meantime, I ordered an original CD for cheap, but I think it will be the same. As it arrives, I'll test.

I thought I was clear about the bugs - no text rendering, and no fog rendering (instead the framebuffer goes stale). Was hoping that they fixed it in the final shipping game. 🙁
