Hi, thanks for nGlide, it works fantastic on 99% 3dfx games I tried.

I wanted to report a problem with Need for Speed Porsche: Unleashed / 2000. When selecting Quick Race, and selecting the 4th track, textures on the track dissappear and appear again.

Here is a pick.

Im using Win8x64/ATI6850/nGlide1.01/Corei7.

I tried also with patched 3.5 and 3.5 enhanced, same problem.

Also, sky is on high and looks terrible.

This is not a nGlide bug. The same thing happens on original Voodoo hardware. Projected headlights are responsible for this. Set headlights=vertex, as it's the only working option for 3dfx cards.

The sky doesn't look any better in D3D mode. Check your advanced graphics settings (skyrendering=high).

Regarding texture quality (on door handles, badges, cockpit, wheels, etc), there's some updated files that prevent the game automatically selecting low quality textures on newer computers (>2.1GHz), see this thread: http://www.nfscars.net/forum/showthread ... t=graphics

I only updated the main game exe and gimme.dll and graphics dlls, didn't need much more, but there's other fixes on that site. Now the game looks nice again! Not tried it with nGlide though as D3D looks fine (that site's updated dlls force 32bit only)

Thanks, with vertex lightning the problem is gone.
Also, I checked and re-checked skyrendering=high, and still looks like crap, but checked online some videos on youtube, and it seems that it always looked like crap.
This game with antialiasing and anisotropic filtering looks really really good! Here is a pic, thanks!

Thanks, that patch solves many issues in original game! The game now runs better than ever! Sad that sky is hideous.

How can switch back to use original GPU not n Glide in Need for Speed Porsche: Unleashed?

Launch the game as: porsche.exe driver=dx7, or use 3DSetup\3DSetup.exe.
