Re: How does KQ8 determine whether Direct3D is supported?

Nico, were you ever able to take a look at that mouse stuff again? No. In April I started a rewrite of KQMoEFix with config options, logging/tracing, important fixes, and later an installer/setup application. In the currently published version the TalkComplete bug is only fixed for one class. I alr...

Re: How does KQ8 determine whether Direct3D is supported?

Do note I'm using the GOG.com release, so if you used an original release copy and associated patches, that might have something to do with it. I'm using the official Patch 1.3 DE/FR (also included in the official Spanish and Italian release) because it is the most recent Mask.exe (by linker timest...

Re: How does KQ8 determine whether Direct3D is supported?

Got access to a Windows 7 machine: DD and D3D seem to work with dgVoodoo 2.45 with default default settings (dgVoodoo setup is detected as potential security threat and the user overrides for the virus scanner are disabled). So it seems I'm too late and the research is obsolete :-)

Re: How does KQ8 determine whether Direct3D is supported?

Would you know where they tend to be active these days? Sorry for the late reply. With my upgrade to Debian "Stretch" some time ago, VMware Player stopped working and all Windows related projects are on hold. However, IDA is running fine with Wine... and here is the analysis as pseudo code: // MASK...

use this in a batch file: batch code

Re: SWAT 2 (GOG version) no audio in movies

I'll see what GOG has to say. [...] The story isn't that complex :-) (my wild guess is, that GOG.com just forgot to install the audio codec - because it worked on the test system :) ) Once upon a time, the Indeo audio/video codecs provided the best compression (quality per bit/size) and the decoder...
