I expected as much from you, lecram. I will be testing MesaFX as soon as I get my 3dfxBox back up and running.

WOW! The rat comes out of his whole to destroy another thread!
BWAHAHAHA

Clearly neither you nor amp_man understood the [asshole] [/asshole] comment...
*sigh*


If I wanted to be an asshole, I would be one, and Dan knows that...

/me thinks Black_Out really needs some professional help...
btw, you still haven't told us how it was, the details...you know, f*cking yourself and all...

And I quote myself...

Hi guys!

Seems like a family reunion!

@amp_man:
Okay, try the DLL and let me know!

@Black_Out
It's been a few days, eh? Okay, let's stick to the topic! I loose temper very easily, but otherwise I don't have anything against you. I would be very grateful if you'd test Mesa and let me know your opinions!

@Lecram25
[asshole] You little old rat! [/asshole]

Okidoki! We had our fun here! Let's stick to the topic!

PS: I'm sending today an updated version. WGL_3DFX_gamma_control really works this time!

Regards,
Daniel Borca

Sorry Daniel, I couldn't resist - I apollogize.

I did however test these and they kick ass.

Definately better performance / Quality as we were promised ! You've done a bang up job as per usual!

@ Daniel:

So, there's going to be a new release of the dlls soon?

Hello

I tested MesaFX on my (old) system :
Voodoo Banshee, VIA MVP3, 1 MB L2 cache, AMD K6-2 500, 256 MB SDRAM

Quake 3 Arena : superb picture quality, 20 FPS (timedemo)
Return to Castle Wolfenstein, Serious Sam 1 & 2 : idem

Well done Daniel and other coders !

I just wanna mention that for the particular case of Q3A the 3Dfx ICD was faster (30 FPS), but the picture quality was not as good.

Related to topic, WickedGL version for Voodoo2/3/4/5 (2 TMUs) did work on Banshee, but performed only @ 20 FPS ; WickedGL version for Banshee (1 TMU) performed @ 30 FPS.

Best regards

Let's make things clear:
The MesaFX driver always follows Mesa numbering scheme. Example gratia: for Mesa 5.1, we have 0.51; for Mesa 6.0, we'll have 0.60 and so on. Fixes between official Mesa releases will have an odd versioning scheme: 0.51a, 0.51b etc.

Basically, will be updates all the time. Just keep an eye on the download page. I will back up the download at http://www.geocities.com/dborca/mesa/mesa.html

Regards,
Daniel Borca

The only help I had came from my buddy Koolsmoky!

And, of course, the Mesa gods, who worked on the driver in the past.

Yes, I know... The thing is, 3dfx never cared much about true OpenGL conformance, and sacrificed almost everything in favor of speed. But I cannot afford that with Mesa.

NWN crashes with memory access violation errors with the new mesa rev a .dll (and the first one too). I tried running GLtrace, but the game crashes so soon that there is nothing in the text file to report. I believe the game is crashing when trying to resize the video.

Serious Sam SE looks to be running very well and fast.

Bloody Mess
