Re: Portable version?

That doesn't solve the problem of global configuration in the registry. It would be nice to have an optional config file in the local directory. The GOG.com release of King's Quest: Mask of Eternity comes with nGlide 1.02. Besides the fact that I use another nGlide version globally... whenever I enf...

Works for me (I guess you renamed the SetupD3D.dll to relate the problem to D3D).
But there might be problems with long device descriptions (unchecked copy to fixed-sized string buffers).

Re: King's Quest: Mask of Eternity - Two Glide Wrappers

Just to mention it: My game rig runs on Debian and I'm using Wine to play most of the GOG releases. But KQ8 has at least three issues ⋅ GetDiskFreeSpace bug in Mask.exe (Win95 or custom Mask.exe patch) ⋅ GOG didn't remove the CD check completely - you have to have at least one CD...

Re: King's Quest: Mask of Eternity - Two Glide Wrappers

Now please use modified mask.exe attached in this thread and let me know if the loop problem is gone on your ancient hardware + 800x600 + nGlide hi-res. Windows 7 (64-bit), NVS 5400M (enforced, because Mask.exe defaults to Intel HD Graphics 4000) "set800mode 1" (Options.cs) and "by d...

Re: King's Quest: Mask of Eternity - Two Glide Wrappers

Which executable did you use for this test, Nico? Original from GOG.com release or modified attached here? I tested the original GOG version on ancient hardware and did not know that I _should_ not select 800x600 in the game menu options :) (the loop happens with 800x600 enabled in the game options...

Re: King's Quest: Mask of Eternity - Two Glide Wrappers

The config defaults to DirectDraw and nGlide v1.02 is included in the installation. But as soon as I set a resolution (e.g. "by desktop") the starting game hangs in an endless resolution switch loop (playing the menu theme in the background). Doesn't matter if I use local or official 1.02 ...

Re: nglide doesnt work with POD gold

I published a new version of PodHacks where the settings dialog should work on W95/W98/NT4 (ComCtl32 >= 4.70 is required, IE3 or newer).

Re: nglide doesnt work with POD gold

[...], can you please look at the autorun/install crash of Mechwarrior 2: Mercenaries 3dfx Edition? This *censored* installer ctd (getinfo.dll offset 1054 or 10e4) in WinXp and crash in WinME when it tries to get PC specs. In the Time_Processor_80386 function it uses hardware access to the programm...
