I just compiled the new one (11-10-2005), you can download it from here. Tough, haven't tested it on action yet, so do it on your own risk ;)

magillom: this dxtn.dll adds support for DTXn texture comression (which is present in hardware) in MesaFX. Voodoo3 doesn't have this hardware support and because of that it has no impact on v3.

Hello,

Now, it's been exactly a year since my departure, so I thought it would be a nice timing to drop a few words...

It's nice to see the forum is pretty much alive. Many topics are active. Yet I chose this one because it was most comfortable for me and, frankly, I didn't feel like beginning a new one.

So, guys, keep up the good spirit and have a nice winter holiday!

For the technically oriented: although I still have developer rights in Mesa team, there is very unlikely that any new FX release will see the day of light. I am sorry, but real-life issues won.

There is a complete new driver, called Sage, on my webpage; I do it in my spare time, and perhaps - just perhaps - a really working version will be released. The texture compression code on my webpage was revisited to allow Sage to decompress textures on-the-fly.

Regards,
Daniel Borca

too bad,I was still waiting for the final release..as for sage,its good to know you still have some tricks in the sleeves.best x-mas gift ever .tried the alpha already but it didnt work (glquake),maybe I was doing something wrong,or maybe I should just wait for a newer release..

anyway,thanks for dropping by,its great to hear some news after that loong year of silence.happy holidays

r21vo You write on your website, that 3dmark01 gains performance with dxtn.dll. I thought its only possible to use with MesaFX...

i don't know if it here that this question must be posted but here it goes : sage opengl driver works in win9x? xp?the installation procedure is the same of mesa?
other question that I have..when putting mesa in the game's directory we select 3dfx gl or default opengl in order to work with mesa?
in cs 1.5 it is only putting the opengl32.dll in gldrv folder or must we do more things?
[[]] and thanks for this miracle!god bless u

Hi again,

As the attachment didn't work.....
The msgbox says:
"The procedure entry point grAlphaBlendFunction@16 could not be located in the dynamic link library glide3x.dll"
Any ideas?

This error is a common error on SAGE. I suppose Daniel will have to fix this error in future revisions.
