Re: DgVoodoo, recording, and general quality & performance considerations

Fast video memory access must be enabled in dgVoodoo for better performance with lens flares. It does something weird so it's a bit problematic in general. Lag spikes are still noticeable at very high resolutions, eg. 4K. It also depends on CPU speed, with slower CPUs one may experience the issue at...

Re: Improving Drakan performance, compatibility and audio

The download was removed because I don't want trouble. If Creative's usage terms say ALchemy can only be used with their products then so be it. You can try DSOAL instead.

Someone made a comparison video showcasing F.E.A.R. with both ALchemy and DSOAL.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Had to re-upload due to some silly mistakes. Regarding loading, you have to go through front/back-buffer swapping function after updating the loading bar to see the results on the screen, where VSync and frame-limiting takes place. So these things are now disabled in such scenario. It won't help wit...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Small update has been released. I fixed an issue with enabled FPS limiter/vertical synchronization having a negative impact on loading times and added support for automatic port forwarding using NAT-PMP and UPnP protocols.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Could it have something to do with the length of the text showing the current level? It's like it shows when starting certain levels but not for the others. If you pass NULL for one Blt parameter that has to do with color filling or something, it can be seen (things go garbled) And also if you pause...

Or the oddity with "Server launch sucessful!" message not appearing under certain circumstances.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Somehow the FPS/rate counter stopped bugging when I tried it again this time without me doing anything. It did work much slower when started via Remote Desktop session, though the FPS was still around 110, while normally it goes up to about 2000 FPS. The console was empty if started before connectin...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Strange, I tried it in Safe Mode with Networking, so no graphics drivers were loaded. It shouldn't slow down neither when connected with Remote Desktop. https://i.imgur.com/C2FXu08.png Built-in frame limiter for dedicated server is a bit bugged (type maxrate ##). Up to certain value is OK, then it d...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

How did you come to conclusion that the server needs 3D capable card? Because it doesn't from what I can tell. I don't know about Blt performance. What would be the "normal" speed of the server? Using DirectDraw for the server console is unusual, that's for sure. At least you can minimize it to make...

Re: Drakan available on Good old Games?

4027 votes. Not much in the grand scheme of things. But it appears games with less votes made it on GOG. Guess it'll never happen with Drakan being Sony's IP.

Re: Windows 10

and NO MOUSE! hard to play with no mouse? ya! This happens with Drakan when Windows applies DPI scaling (when DPI setting is above 100%), more specifically, when per-monitor DPI scaling is enabled, which is a thing since Windows 8. The mouse is still there, just confined in the corner. It could've ...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Oops, I don't know what the heck happened, but I was having problems with OllyDbg. When I was moving the code around, OllyDbg changed one of the bytes in the saved file. I thought it was a temporary glitch, so double checked the code in code section and saved again, only to realize this morning I re...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Yes. I was thinking of it rather in terms of being more elegant and readable. Oh. What for? The WINAPI functions work perfectly fine for this purpose; no point in reinventing the wheel. True. Just saw someone needing to deal with much larger INIs where performance bottleneck was apparent due to ope...
