 3dfx Channel   MesaFX   Runtime Tuning For Advanced Users 
 

The following environment variables affect MesaFX 0.51f and above. Those that affect Glide only, are beyond the scope of this file.

The entries that don't have a "Value" field, can have any value whatsoever
ex: set MESA_FX_IGNORE_TEXUS2=y

"Note" (*) means that the environment variable affects Glide, too; also, if the var is not found in the environment, it is searched in windoze registry.

"Note" (!) means that the environment variable is not working as expected; may have undefined effects, might have effects only at Glide level or might not have any effect whatsoever. Caveat emptor! Those are to be revised soon.

It is recommended to leave the envvars alone, so that Mesa/Glide will run with default values. Use them only when you experience crashes or strange behavior.
