Re: v11 released!

Any explanation for % in titel bar? What does it mean?
https://pp.vk.me/c631929/v631929184/454 ... KNrBPI.jpg

I'm asking since it's always showing 98-101%, but if this means that my current CPU is fully emulated, its wrong since performance is far from good sometimes.

[Req] Maintaining aspect ratio in maximized window

So right now maximized window looks like this, https://pp.vk.me/c631929/v631929184/45356/H7pihP__Jio.jpg Its stretched. And the only way to have proper image is to manually resize window, or use fullscreen. Any chance to have aspect ratio lock option in windowed mode? Like this: https://pp.vk.me/c63...

Re: Thank you! (Dithering)

Big big thank you on all these details. Really interesting. Wonder how close your current filter to un-dithering thing in real voodoo. You are saying PCem obvious "line effect" is a temporary thing? And about this default gamma being kicked up to 1.3/1.7 on 3dfx, causing its rivals to be "too dark" ...

"Try compiling your own from the latest tree and see if it runs better."

That would be impossible for me :(

Re: Thank you! (Dithering)

P.s. so on other cards of this time, in 16bit applications, dithering also existed, but was displayed as is, without filtering?)

Re: Thank you! (Dithering)

A real voodoo wouldn't expose the dithering as pristine and intact in the screenshot though, as it had a undithering filter on the DAC which gave 3dfx their characteristically blurry/waxy look. You'd only usually see those unfiltered, dithered pixels in windowed mode on a Banshee/V3/V4/V5, or scree...

Re: PCem Host System Requirements - Pentium MMX

I've got two PCS

One is laptop with core i7 3000mhz, 4cores / 8threads. Around 70 TFLOPS. System Shock 2 is showing 7 fps.
Second one is desktop with core i7 4500mhz, 4cores / 8threads. Around 95 TFLOPS. But System Shock 2 is showing 7 fps.

How can it be?

Thank you! (Dithering)

I just have no words to say :) That’s just miracle. Thank you guys, to all of you. While today we have many ways to run 3dfx-era games (like using nglide), it’s still just wrappers, not the emulation. And with this “interlayer” between game requests and new hardware we are getting some changes in re...
