thanks for the heads up :)

you can use&test with this multiplayer-fitted quake 2 demo:

and R1Q2:

quake2 3.20 with default opengl
r1q2 with default opengl
r1q2 with r1gl

after launching, R1Q2 will ask you to generate a crash log, press No to enter the menu game

after you launch the game (during the ID Software logo movie), press ` to bring up the console
connect g.gameszone.ro
connect q2.computergames.ro (only with r1q2 and anticheat)

it will trigger a BSOD or a driver hang after it loads the last file

R1Q2 and R1GL works, but the game takes a big performance hit when using items that explodes (rockets, grenades, etc) and dynamic lightning is enabled (gl_dynamic 1). This doesn't mean that R1Q2 with R1GL doesn't ask to output a crash log when launching the game. Plus other issues which I can't reproduce

I was wrong... using the original 3.20 quake2.exe, the game starts using default opengl, I only can use the menu, but problems appear when I attempt to enter on a map (single, multi or a demo, it doesn't matter)

the r1q2, using the original ref_gl.dll or ref_r1ql.dll exits with the same crash logs:

also... for the first time, I encountered another issue... windows reported that the 3dfxvs.sys driver stopped responding, this happened while I was in quake2 (original q2 3.20 exe), using default opengl and I wanted to join some server (any server) or load a map (any map).

From windows's logs:

"Application popup: Windows - Display Driver Stopped Responding : The 3dfxvs display driver has stopped working normally. Save your work and reboot the system to restore full display functionality. The next time you reboot the machine a dialog will be displayed giving you a chance to upload data about this failure to Microsoft."

"The driver 3dfxvs for the display device \Device\Video0 got stuck in an infinite loop. This usually indicates a problem with the device itself or with the device driver programming the hardware incorrectly. Please check with your hardware device vendor for any driver updates."

Or it triggers a machine check exception (BSOD) or another another BSOD (3dfxvs.sys, STOP 0xEA(,,,0x01)). Same thing with r1q2 and the 3.20 gl renderer.

If I start the game (with the same original 3.20 exe and 3.20 default opengl driver), the game crashes when tring to run the first demo, windows records this in its logs:

"Faulting application quake2.exe, version, faulting module glide3x.dll, version, fault address 0x0002b848."

I can reproduce everytime the things above.

hello... I've been trying Quake2 under Windows XP, using OpenGL, but the original exe just exists without any explanation (default OpenGL or 3dfx OpenGL, it doesn't matter, only software works); I've downloaded r1q2 (http://www.r1ch.net/stuff/r1q2/) and tried it (using default OpenGL and r1gl OpenGL) and it does something more than the original exe: it tells me it crashed and generates a log and a dump file; the log file lists 3dfxOGL.dll as crash point:

This happens every time I start r1q2 with OpenGL... also, the game does start by telling r1q2 not to generate the crash log... then it enters fullscreen OpenGL game console and in the console it lists some errors:

Loading ref_gl.dll
ref_gl version: GL 0.01
Initializing OpenGL display
...setting mode 3: 640 480 FS
...attempting fullscreen
...using desktop display depth of 16
...calling CDS: ok
GLimp_Init() - qwglMakeCurrent failed
VID_CreateWindow() - GLimp_InitGL failed
ref_gl::R_SetMode() - invalid mode
Initializing OpenGL display
...setting mode 3: 640 480 W
ref_gl::R_ShutDown() - qwglMakecurrent failed
...setting windowed mode
GL PFD: color(32 bits) Z(24 bits)

the rest of the console text doesn't matter (it lists the capabilities of the OpenGL library)... the result is the game running in OpenGL fullscreen 640x480 (not windowed) after it reported a crash and after I denied it to create the crash log

I'm using SFFT48 with the included MesaFX ( and a Voodoo4 4500 AGP video card, under Windows XP SP2 fully updated

In case somebody still works on MesaFX, maybe you can use this information to improve it

thank you

Later edit:

Here is another trace taken from another system with the same video card, drivers, same OS (clean install)

Later edit #2:

I've just discovered that I was using an outdated ref_gl.dll q2 renderer. For some reason, the steam version of quake2 is 3.19, not 3.20 (even if it was compiled on july 2007). The game works just fine with the 3.20 exe and the 3.20 default opengl renderer.

Raff3DC Posted - 13/05/2007 : 18:32:00
Any development on MesaFX? :(

Greetings from Germany,
ps47 Posted - 10/08/2006 : 20:47:22
dont use opengl if you can use a native glide plugin.there are no real benefits..as simple as that.
Targaff Posted - 09/08/2006 : 11:57:09
I imagine it's no different from any other app, but I'm curious as to why you're not using the native Glide plugin for both? Project64 in particular has a very good Glide implementation.
in3d Posted - 07/08/2006 : 03:00:15
Hi all,

I have a smal question.

- How I can install correctly MeasaFX for my PSX emulator (ePSXe), to be able to play in Opengl/Glide mode ?

- I want to make the same thing with the Nintendo 64 emulator (Project64) but, I didn't find the option to play in Opengl/Glide mode in this emulator

Thenks for help.

Did you found the time to work at Mesa FX new release and at the updated Sage, Daniel? Thank you for still offering support for us, the 3DFX comunity!
Raff3DC Posted - 20/07/2006 : 01:16:25
Welcome back! I'm really looking forward to playing games with some new OGL files. =D

Yes, nice to hear from you again DBORCA..... I've missed those heady days when NWN didn't work until you started to tweak your Mesafx and suddenly I could play NWN with my V5!
Glide Posted - 19/07/2006 : 13:32:14
I agree with Amiga ;). It's nice reading Daniel posts and playing OpenGL games with his Software :)

Bye bye

Not so. Those are for software rendering.

AFAIK Glide backend does not compile as-is. I plan to have a look at it in the next few days.

Wellcome back Dany,... really wellcome back my friend .
