I'm working on this on my spare time. Up to now only minimal detection code is implemented; I got a big help on this by wd and gulikoza.
The aim is a software implementation of the voodoo1 (SST-1) chip. Documentation mainly comes from SST-1 official specs, found on this page.
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.
