Nglide with ATi legacy cards

Postby Gamecollector » Tue Jun 21, 2011 11:57 pm

Warning: the list below is for WinGlide games. DOS Glide list is here.

X - not work with nGlide at all. Or fatal glitch (like the screen is totally black).
w - the game (or the game setup) is not compatible with Windows Xp.
w - not compatible with Xp, but can be played with manual tweaking/unofficial patch.
(Work) - have tested with a real Voodoo2.

P.S. Not included are a) Glide version is OEM only (Mechwarrior 2: 31st Century Combat 3dfx etc).
b) No retail version or no glide API in the retail version (Esoteria, Hired Guns etc).
c) DOS glide titles - see below.
d) Expansion packs, Gold editions etc. I found only 1 EP with the glide support remover - Icewind Dale: Heart of Winter. Others are supporting glide if the main game is having the glide API.

Not tested (don't have this game/expansion pack or the game isn't working correctly with WinXp):
If I missed a game with glide API support - please tell me the name of it.
Tnx.

Re: Nglide with ATi legacy cards.

Postby Gamecollector » Thu Jun 23, 2011 2:57 am

Standard troubles:
  • Detection trouble. The game is trying to find a glide card through the PCI and of course can't detect nGlide as one of Voodoos. The main culprit is EA.
    Affected games are: FIFA 99, 2000 (unpatched), Future Cop: L.A.P.D., GTA2, Nascar 2000, NBA Live 99-2001, Need for Speed 2-5, NHL 99-2002, Tachyon: the Fringe, Tiger Woods 99, 2001 (unpatched); Triple Play 99-2001, Ultimate Hunt Challenge.
    Another trouble - the game installer is using glide.dll and st1init.dll to detect presence of a Voodoo.
    Affected games are: F1 Racing Simulation, Pandemonium!, Pod 2.0.
  • No CDA in Xp (because of winmm.dll). Or a cd detection is failing.
    Affected games are: Beast Wars: Transformers, Boss Rally, Deathtrap Dungeon, Frogger, Half-Life (unpatched), Hardcore 4x4, Metal Fatigue, Sentinel Returns, Turok 2: Seeds of Evil, V-Rally Championship Edition.
    More testing is needed: F1 Racing Simulation, F22: Air Dominance Fighter, F22: Total Air War.
  • A protection/packer isn't Xp compatible. Safedisc 1.0x as the example. Use unpackers.
    Affected games are: Carmageddon II: Carpocalypse Now, Jane's Fleet Command, Total Soccer 2000.
  • Pentium 4 incompatibility. Affected games are Gulf War: Operation Desert Hammer, NFL Gameday 99 (unpatched) and Pro Rally 2001.
  • Z-fighting (on shadows, decals etc).

Xp compatibility tips:

  • 1nsane: No Limits, No Rules, No Roads - unpatched version: run the main executable (game.exe), not the launcher (freeze).
  • Counter Strike - run the main executable (cstrike.exe), not the autorun (freeze at the level loading).
  • Daikatana - Intro is freezing once.
  • Deathtrap Dungeon - no music. Upgrade mss32.dll.
  • Die by the Sword - autorun is freezing once.
  • Extreme Rock Climbing - freeze after a quitting.
  • F1 Racing Simulation - patch to 1.09. Installer check for sst1init.dll. Sound shutter after a quit to OS - use PodHacks to fix.
  • F/A-18: Korea - set desktop resolution to 640x480.
  • F22: Air Dominance Fighter - disable in-game music (freeze).
  • F22: Total Air War - disable in-game music (freeze).
  • Fatal Abyss - quit game isn't working.
  • FIFA 99 - don't use triple buffering with a glide2x driver (voodooa.dll, unpatched voodoo2a.dll).
  • FIFA 2002 - lower the CPU speed (ctd).
  • Gex: Enter the Gecko - lower the audio acceleration level to basic.
  • Gulf War: Operation Desert Hammer - config tool isn't P4 compatible. Run the game from the gamedir as "exes\3dfx_r.exe".
  • Gunman Chronicles - run the main executable (gunman.exe), not the autorun (freeze at the level loading).
  • Hardcore 4x4 - delete glide2x.dll and fxmemmap.vxd from the windows\system after the installing.
  • Heretic II (version 1.00) - lower the audio acceleration level to standard.
  • Jane's AH-64D Longbow 2 - upgrade mss32.dll.
  • Jane's Combat Simulations F-15 - upgrade mss32.dll.
  • Jane's Longbow Gold - lower the audio acceleration level to basic.
  • Joint Strike Fighter - installer will replace nGlide's glide.dll, reinstall nGlide (ntremap.sys is replaced too (same crc but earlier timestamp) and will be deleted by JSF uninstaller. You need to reinstall/restore a Voodoo2 driver).
  • Monaco Grand Prix Racing Simulation 2 - the version 1.06 can't detect the cd.
  • Montezuma's Return - upgrade smackw32.dll.
  • Motorhead - lower the audio acceleration level to standard.
  • Myth II: Soulblighter - patch to the version 1.3 (too low memory).
  • Need for Speed: Road Challenge - don't set "triple buffer=on" or config.dat file will be broken.
  • NFL Gameday 99 - lower the audio acceleration level to basic.
  • Nuclear Strike - lower the audio acceleration level to basic.
  • Pro Rally 2001 - installer isn't P4 compatible. The game is freesing with all PIII+ CPUs. Use patches.
  • Red Baron II - lower the audio acceleration level to basic.
  • Rollcage Stage II - patch to the version 1.0c.
  • S.C.A.R.S. - the installer is freezing on 99% if started from the Autorun.
  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour 2001 - delete WS2Help.dll in the gamedir.
  • Total Soccer 2000 - the original version (1.50) and the game encryptor isn't Xp compatible. Patch to the version 1.52 and use unpacker.

Not nGlide related troubles in graphic:

  • Blaze and Blade: Eternal Quest - the title screen isn't always shown.
  • C.I.A. Operative: Solo Missions - 3dfx 1024x768+ modes aren't working correctly.
  • Excalibur 2555 A.D. - no movies in Xp.
  • Falcon 4.0 - no movies in Xp.
  • Hitman - 3dfx 1024x768+ modes aren't working correctly.
  • Jane's Longbow Gold - no movies in Xp.
  • Joint Strike Fighter - Xp: broken intro.
  • M1 Tank Platoon II - no "Quit" and "Back" buttons in the game menu. Use Esc and Alt+F4.
  • Motorhead - Xp: only sound in the intro.
  • NBA Live 2000 - VS screen artifacts in Xp with all APIs.
  • Need for Speed: Porsche 2000 - texturing errors with the "headlights"=projected option (Monte Carlo).

  • Requiem: Avenging Angel - wrong font size in Xp.
  • Return to Castle Wolfenstein - 3dfx 800x600+ modes aren't working properly with openglv3.dll and openglv5.dll.
  • Rune - skybox borders are black (patched version).
  • Sin - Xp: broken movies (CVID).
  • Terminus - intro is too fast/without sound.
  • Test Drive 5 - Xp: main menu blinking.
  • Triple play 2000 - the game is freezing after the intro. Cancel it (Esc) to play.
  • Wing Commander: Prophecy - movies are too fast/skipped. Use this fix.

Several bits of info for Win9x only games in the list (in other words, why not Xp?):

  • Actua Tennis - "Tennis.exe isn't Win32 application". Use patched executable and fonts.
  • Andretti Racing - the game is freezing before "EA Sports" intro.
  • Asghan - _setup.exe isn't WinXp compatible. Copy all files from the cd (except directx\*.*, _error.txt, autorun.inf, asgh.fbc, license*.*, readme*.*) to the HDD catalog. Create the file "_start.cdp" with "X:\" inside, where X - drive letter of the Asghan cd. Run the game as _st_3dfx.exe.
  • Barrage - ctd in barrage.exe ("unknown" offset 0000).
  • CyberGladiators - the game is too fast. Use patched executable.
  • Le Mans 24 Hours - quit to desktop in the "LeMans 24 hours" mode.
  • Nascar 2000 - install the game in Xp. Run the game. Black screen? Then press and hold "Alt". The game work! Release "Alt" - the game freeze. :)
  • Nascar Revolution - same as the above.
  • S.C.A.R.S. - freeze after the 3dfx logo. Use patched executable.
  • Scorched Planet - ctd in the installer at the hardware detection. Use patched hardware.dll and delete glide.dll + sst1init.dll in the installer dir.
  • SWIV 3d - "The procedure entry point ThunkConnect32 could not be located in the dll KERNEL32.DLL". Use patched dll32.dll.
  • Time Warriors - _setup.exe isn't WinXp compatible. Copy *.exe, *.dll, *.io, *.to, start.ins and credits.dat to the HDD catalog. Create the file "_start.cdp" with "X:\" inside, where X - cd-drive with the game cd. Run the game as _st_3dfx.exe. Copy "oklogosi.flc" to the gamedir - this will remove the "open" error.
  • The Tainted - setup.exe isn't Xp compatible. Break setup.exe (4928 KB) in the task manager to finish the install process. Then rename setupd3d.dll.
  • Vigilance - the installer can't start from the autorun. Copy all files from the CD to HDD catalog. Rename setup._x_ to setup.exe. Run setup.exe

    If you know a way to run this game/games in Xp (even with software mode) - please tell.
    Tnx.

DOS glide games list.
Tested with the latest Ykhwong's build.

Almost all of these games are too slow in the DosBox.
All framebuffer tests are fixed in the Ykhwong's build from 03.09.2011.

Tested games (27 titles, 1 title is a DOS/Win glide):

  • Archimedean Dynasty (patch). (Freeze in the simulation)
    Battle Arena Toshinden (patch) - X. Static link is used.
  • Battlecruiser 3000 A.D. (patch) - X. Crash to DOSBox prompt (page fault). (Ctd)
  • Battlecruiser 3000 A.D. 2.0 - X. Quit to desktop. (Ctd)
  • Blood (patch) - !. Main menu is garbled w/o "set BUILD_640x480=1". (Work)
    • Blood: Plasma Pak.
  • Burnout: Championship Drag Racing.
  • Carmageddon (patch).
    • Carmageddon: Splat Pack.
  • Descent II (patch).
    • Descent II: Vertigo.
  • Dreams to Reality - !. Shadows, whale travel. (The game isn't started).
    EF2000: Tactcom (patch) - X. Static link is used.
  • Extreme Assault. Versions 1.2.0-1.2.2 are still glitched. (Work)
  • Grand Theft Auto.
  • Jetfighter III (patch) - !. Carrier views - missing polygons (1.00). (Work)
  • Jetfighter: Full Burn - !. Carrier views - missing polygons (1.00). (Work)
  • Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny (patch) - !. Transparent rectangle around a moving cursor. (Work)
  • Nascar Racing 2 (patch).
  • Nascar Racing: 1999 Edition.
    Pył. Warning: Pl only!
  • Redguard - !. Main menu glitch (1.01). (Work)
  • Screamer 2 (patch).
  • Screamer Rally.
  • Shadow Warrior (patch).
  • Tie Break Tennis. (Freeze)
  • Tomb Raider (patch) - !. Inventory glitch (1.01). (Work)
  • Tomb Raider: Unfinished Business (patch) - !. Inventory glitch (1.01). (Work)
    Whiplash (patch) - X. Static link is used. (EU 3dfx version (Fatal Racing) is OEM only)
  • XCar: Experimental Racing. Static link is used. Use voodoo2/rush patch. Ctd (dosbox.exe offset c7885)(after standings). Emu mode - the same ctd.

P.S. OEM only titles:
    Fatal Racing - X. Static link is used.
    Starfighter 3000 - X. Static link is used.

"To do" list:
  • Actua Soccer (OEM). I have the OEM cd from the Diamond Monster 3d with the US version of the game (VR Soccer '96). The game is using static link. But still can't find the EU version.
  • Prost Grand Prix.
  • UEFA Champions League 97.

Compatibility troubles:
  • Archimedean Dynasty - disable V-sync.
  • Battlecruiser 3000 A.D. and Battlecruiser 3000 A.D. 2.0 - very long loading time in DOSBox, 30+ seconds with 16 MB RAM, twice more with 32 MB.
  • Blood - run with "set BUILD_640x480=1" and "set BUILD_GAMMA=1".
  • Burnout: Championship Drag Racing - setup crash at the sound card selection. Install the game, create the file burnout.cfg (with a cd-drive letter inside) and change sound settings with setsound.bat, not with setup.exe.
  • Dreams to Reality - use fixed cycles as the text blinking fix.
  • Extreme Assault - sound setup is crash/freeze if started from the setup.exe. Use setsound.bat.
  • Grand Theft Auto: London 1969 - Use "set copycmd=/y" command before the install.
  • Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny - the patch is not installing in DOSBox. Disable V-sync.
  • Screamer 2, Screamer Rally - fixed cycles are needed for the setup.

Question - are "Resident Evil" and "Evil Core: the Fallen Cities" using glideAPI or not?

Thats probably because of dosbox itself. the auto cycles setting doesn't work properly on any of them (even trunk) when set to auto core type and sometimes sets max to 3000, othertimes to 60000, othertimes 500,000 and this can either slow games down or put them in turbo.

Set the core type to Dynamic and you can leave it at auto cycles.

I don't use cycles=auto, only the cycles=max (or cycles=40000 for the Screamer 2 and Screamer rally setups).
Core=dynamic - again, used by default on the test PC.
And - the test PC is just Prescott 3Hz, so - "are slow" is the normal result. :)

The lowest results are in the Lands of Lore: Guardians of Destiny 2. Looks like the "no MMX in DosBox" issue.

ah ok, well, the issues with the cycles should be kept in mind, it seems to cause issues with p4 era cpu's too.

I fixed the polygon rendering, hopefully ykhwong or CosmicDan will pickup the updated patch :D
As for test 29, I get the same result as windows build of the test...I don't see a problem :?:

edit: wait, just checked the screenshot, apparently I have a different test29. Will try to get that one :)
