This is the thread associated with Artificial Academy 2.

This game doesn't work with the regular dgVoodoo 2 2.6, and Dege kindly made a special build.

Threads for this build.

Known Bugs:
-When using user textures for cloth/underware, it causes a large amount of texture distortion depending on the Hue value of the texture that can be set by the game.

I've merged the special build into main dgVoodoo with the help of a new option.
I also managed to reproduce the texture problem, however, it's interesting: it occurs only on nVidia but works well on my Intel HD Graphics 530.
Also, it's fine through dxvk.
I can't see any problem with the shader that's used for generating the textures. 😖 😕

Is there anything I can help you with?
My machine is also with nVIDIA's board.

Unfortunately, no, I think.
I fixed a minor bug and now the software WARP renderer is also working with the game.
The cloth textures are rendered correctly with that too, so it all seems to be an nVidia bug somewhere deep in the driver. 🙁

BTW, just to make sure, I used this texture for my debugging:
