While playing World of WarCraft (with Alpha 39) a long time yesterday, I noticed that there are absolutely no MIP-Maps ... which results in cruel shimmering even with 4xRGSSAA enabled. Is that new? I don't know with which driver release this was introduced. But I also have to say that in some cases (indoor) it looks even better than mip-mapped & bilinear with negative LOD ...

Greetings,
Raff

Star wars: empire at war freezes while loading with alpha39, maybe because it can't play the intro movie correctly

GTR 2 Demo: freezes when entering the menu (the two "starting screens" look fine), no matter which driver settings are chosen. Shaders are set to DX7, windowed mode freezes too. I also had to set desktop resolution to 800x600x16 to eliminate the "32 MiB required" screen (same with GTR 1). The predecessor runs fine with our Voodoo5's. Maybe a driver fix could continue that in part 2?

- Be sure to have the latest PJ64 version, with the latest INI configuration files.
- Look for the "games compatibility list" for PJ64.
- Don't use a "Direct3D video output plugin" but use a "Glide video output plugin". Better, faster, perfect.

For the halo thing anti aliasing can cause this black screen problem. Try turning antialiasing off. Same thing happened to me with AA for some reason but now it works with AA for some unexplained reason. But then again im using SFFT38

FlatOut 2: Almost perfect with SFFT Alpha 39.
Some little color aberration and no MIP-mapping (= bad shimmering) aren't nice, but acceptable. Optional blooming effects cause the screen to be almost 100% white and 4x AA results in freezes (2x works).

Let me summarize my tests with a Voodoo5 6000 and SFFT Alpha 39:

- No MIP-mapping in World of WarCraft, FlatOut 2 and TrackMania Sunrise
- texture corruption in the Gothic series (texture management off should solve this)
- 8x SGSSAA freezes in TrackMania Sunrise and FlatOut 2, up to 4x works
- Half-Life 2 freezes after some time
- Complex shadows in Dungeon Siege 2 look nice but the world around is rendered false when enabled
- Small texture corruption in NFS Most Wanted's sky

These are some bugs that I noticed in working games. All of them (except the 8x AA error of course) occur on a V5 5500 PCI, too. SFFT, it would be nice if you could fix them! And what about support for Call of Duty 2 (DX7) and other new games?
