[14:10:57] <wjp> hi
[14:11:04] <Colourless> hi
[14:14:02] <Dominus> hi
[14:15:14] <Dominus> colourless: with your latest glidexp and that hacked (or whatever was done to it) voodoo miniport that can be found in amigamerlin's 2.5 driverpack neverwinter night is playable
[14:15:58] * Colourless shrugs his shoulders
[14:16:15] <Dominus> :-)
[14:16:17] <Colourless> no idea what i could have done
[14:17:05] <Dominus> I think the problem was also in the miniport, not just the glide drivers
[14:18:03] <Dominus> as it also works with the 1011 glidexp
[14:18:32] <Colourless> there is only minor differences between 1011 and 1012
[14:18:44] <Dominus> thankfully you can alt-tab out of NWN with your glide drivers. Kool's always crash the whole system...
[14:19:00] <Dominus> I read iyour comments on the x3dfx board
[14:19:17] <Colourless> yeah, with my drivers there shouldn't be anymore alt-tab crashes
[14:19:27] <Dominus> also there is already quite a good glide wrapper from evoodoo (does glide2+3)
[14:20:01] <Dominus> in regards to people asking you to do a glide wrapper :-)
[14:20:24] <Colourless> well, as i said, chances are it's not going to happen.
[14:21:08] <Dominus> well, evoodoo os already there, does a good job and is free so I don't see a need for it anyway
[14:21:14] <Dominus> os=is
[14:23:56] <Kirben> How good is evoodoo os ?
[14:24:36] <Colourless> if i did it, it would be purely academic. From what I know of Glide, Direct3D and OpenGL, it's not actually possible to completely emulate glide with normal OpenGL or Direct3D. The only way to actually do it is to use Pixel Shaders
[14:24:59] <Dominus> Kirben: I can't really say for sure (as I have a glide card so I cant judge) but people say it is quite good
[14:52:52] <Dominus> brb
