That's ludicrous.
Holly sh*t even!



Sirkoz, what is the problem ? may be you don't know that the special DLL that permit to run Doom3 contain a lot of Hack. This hack can't be included in the "official" mesa distribution that contain all the "real" supported feature of Voodoo and not "feaked" feature.

I hope all is clear now and however Daniel can explain you better what I mean.

That's all.

welcome, sirkoz

the regular mesafx does not run doom3. you have to use the "special" mesafx/d3 dll - which is just a "derived" work. it is not officially supported, although i will update it whenever i fix some core Mesa bugs.

i don't feel comfortable when people use mesafx/d3 as a replacement for mesafx, because of the hacks contained therein. those hacks are possible only because doom3 uses a very special rendering technique, and are not suitable for other applications.

i know this thread became exeedingly long, but reading it a bit might help i think that's what Amiga (ciao amico! ) wanted to say - so don't feel bad about it.

Regards,
Daniel Borca

Daniel, first I want to say thank you for such incredible work... you are very talented. I want to mention, that 'Return to Castle Wolfenstein' has this texture problem where textures flsh really bad as you move away from them. For example this is very apparent when you are in spectator mode say on the beach level and move away from objects - the edges are distorted and flash really bad. Heres a link to a demo:

news at my situ.
i fixed a clearing bug (and probably induced a few more). this fix affects both regular mesa and the d3 version. the bright side is that d3 version got rid of the shadowing bugs. or so i hope.

@mcmagostini
sorry, it was a blind guess. as i said, i can't see the bug in demo version
@LogicalMadness
i already have the demo version, but... where's the beach level?

Regards,
Daniel Borca

Thanks for the explanation.
It's really so nice to see Doom3 on Voodoos, so I got "a little" emotional. Sorry.

Please - do keep the good work.
Pitty, that all of you Voodoo-driver devs don't release the ultimate new release to go along with the MesaFX (maybe AmigaMerlin_4-0? ). Now it's all more or less trial and error - Glide from there, DX from here and then another driver with the same Glide.....catch my drift?

I know it's an addon, but quite an essential one.

i am planning a major MesaFX release, and I need your help: i want to collect the best Glide3x libs for all cards (all generations: V1, VR, V2, VB, V3, V4, V5).

i brought the Glide3x repository at SourceForge up-to-date (Linux / DOS), but I really don't have time to fix the win32 interface. and - as I stated many times before - I don't deal with windoze crap. (sorry, Kool, I couldn't help myself don't mind me)

that is, I need windoze dlls.

Regards,
Daniel Borca

as far as I now,the latest voodoo1 glide3x (ver 3.04.00.0455) can be found in the latest original 3dfx driver (ver. 30100,described as q3 compatible driver).mesafx works fine with this glide3x (quake,q3 arena,return to castle wolfenstein,hitman1)..

For the voodoo 1, there aren't alot of choices. I honestly just use which ever one comes with the drivers I'm using, and I haven't found anything better than Iceman's drivers at the moment. The development of 3rd party drivers for the voodoo 1 doesn't seem to be a huge priority for anyone, I wonder why...

Comp 1:
- Windows XP Pro
- Athlon 2500XP
- MSI K7N2 Delta motherboard
- 512 meg of 333mhz ram
- Radeon 9700 Pro
Comp 2:
- Windows 98 SE
- Pentium 2 - 333
- 64 meg of pc100 ram
- Cirrus Logic Laguna 5465 vid card
- Monster 3d card
Comp3:
- Windows 98SE
- Duron 800Mhz
- 192Meg of pc100
- Voodoo 3 2000
