I feel amazing that you guys can modify the driver to run the new game on voodoo

I have seen "rescaling and resizing"  several times
What do these mean?



MesaFX for example uses this to display bigger textures on a Voodoo3. It can handle only up to 256x256 textures, so MesaFX cuts the big ones into "tasty" bits. :D

Greetings from Germany,

Is resizing mean to resize the texture of game to a lower resolution ?

then What is the different between resizing and rescaling of the texture?


rescaling means lowering the texture resolution to 256*256.this is what mesafx does.
resizing means splitting the texture to smaller pieces..
