I d/loaded BloodChick yesterday. Crashes allright. Yet, I haven't actually tested it with V-branch.

Anyway, my Mesa-dev account is up & running so I started committing things.

Sorry, I don't have anything new, and many bugs are still lurking around I'll release 0.51f for one purpose and one only (user-level debug). For full debug versions contact me or Koolsmoky. Anyway, please take a look at:

for run-time tuning. That might help in troubleshooting.

Performance Report :

MesaFX 0.51e runs just fine with the Daytona AGP.
Neverwinter Nights runs at 800x600 in almost full detail, no problems as well in Quake3.
BTW, the VSA101 is recognized as Voodoo4 ( as seen in DRIVER INFO in Q3 ).

I would also like to request worms3d.

it crashes right after the SEGA logo, but if i run the program in compatibility mode for win98 i get a little further. it then crashes when it tries to load the game (i guess the menu).

The VSA101 was meant to be a faster+cheaper VSA100. Perhaps the PCI IDs are the same. When Glide detects a Napalm-based board, it tries to count the number of chips. Hence the Voodoo4 confusion, as there was never a SLI Daytona.

I had to refuse a Daytona a few months ago , so I cannot do Daytona testing.

Hello Daniel

Well done ! MesaFX 0.51f is faster with Quake 3 : 20 FPS -> 23 FPS on my K6-2 500 & 3Dfx Banshee

I want to report a problem with game BillardGL that crashes with MesaFX ; this game uses GLUT and works with 3Dfx OpenGL ICD, it's available here http://heanet.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/billardgl/BillardGL-1.75-Setup.exe

Ladies and gents, I give you release G. G -- from Gutierrez.

Basically, it adds true single-pass trilinear filtering when combine extension is disabled (either non-Napalm hardware or MESA_FX_IGNORE_CMBEXT=y).

Also, I added support for BIG textures (MESA_FX_MAXLOD)
See http://www.geocities.com/dborca/mesa/mesafxev.txt for details.

Big textures are ugly, because are handled by SW rescaling, in order to minimize impact over Napalm core.

And some other small fixes. Unfortunately, I couldn't fix any more games, as I haven't downloaded any of those troublemakers yet. So I guess old bugs still persist.

Anyhow, I had the fun of my life playing Serious Sam SE on my 12 MB STB Voodoo2. Eheheh! And yes, trilinear filtering is pretty nice.

I was told Voodoo1 works with MesaFX (batracio), at least at some extent. I suspect Glide3 was never a finished product for Voodoo1, tho... Hence the bugs. Unfortunately, I can't test Voodoo1 hardware.

Still, this is good news to know MesaFX works for all Voodoos.

PS: here's an interesting tip about BIG textures. When bilinear+mipmap (or trilinear) was enabled, some games which made use of gluBuild2dMipmaps worked with previous MesaFX releases, because GLU automatically rescales textures to match biggest LOD.

Daniel Borca

Ah-hah! Now allied against me? I think I'll get Koolsmoky with me for a bit of help. We're unstoppable.

Guys, I made a bugfix since yesterday (something in texture memory manager when in UMA mode). RTCW work ok now.
