Dosbox Daum + Nglide + Carmageddon = Crash

Hello!

I've try to install Carmageddon with 3dfx-patch in newest (2015-01-25) Dosbox Daum.

Game starts, 3dfx logo is displayed, i can select race and cars.
But when the Race starts, dosbox has an Error and closes itself.

After a lot of testing i found out it depends on the dosbox version.

Working: Dosbox-Daum till 2013-01-24, and Cosmic-Dan's Build.

Crashing: Dosbox-Daum after 2013-01-24.

I don't know if this is a Dosbox oder nglide Error.
Or just a wrong setting in newer dosbox.config.

Can anyone confirm that crash with newer Daum versions and nglide and carmageddon1?

Many thanks.

You're probably experiencing a famous windib driver blackscreen/crash problem. It occurs with all DOS games whenever DOSBox SDL driver is set to windib (only Daum), fullscreen option is set to true, desktop resolution is higher than 1024x768 and nGlide resolution is set to By app.

There are couple workarounds:
-run DOSBox with Direct3D driver (launch DOSBox with dosboxdx.bat instead of launching exe directly, file attached below)
-set fullscreen=false in dosbox.conf
-set nGlide resolution to "By desktop"

Next nGlide version will handle this case, but for now you have to use one of these workarounds.

still crashing....

using your bat-file, setting desktop resolution to 800x600, set nglide to use desktop resolution.

in dosbox.conf:

output=direct3d
fullscreen=false
fullresolution=original

i start the game with voodo2c.exe

3dfx logo is displayed, intro video plays, then i am in the main menu.

select new game, difficulty, racetrack, then racing position.

And then screen goes black and dosbox crashes

Ok, so that's not it.

Post your detailed PC specs, OS and nGlide version.

test dosbox versions from 2014 and 2015... all crash when using nglide and set "glide=true"

but they are working when not using nglide and using internal 3dfx emulation "glide-emu"

cosmic-dans build work best for me when using nglide wrapper with Dosbox.

Tested the game (voodo2c.exe) with nGlide 1.04 and Daum 2013-01-07, 2013-01-24, 2014-01-27 and 2015-01-25. All work without a crash for me.

The only difference in dosbox.conf between build 2013-01-07 and 2013-01-24 are IDE interfaces enabled, but I don't think that's the reason of a ctd.

Are you using multi monitor setup?

Please also upload dosbox.conf you were using with 2015-01-25 as well as post crash details with this build from Windows Event Viewer.

By the way, i have the German Version of Carmageddon.

And it crashed at the Same point running on a real Voodoo2.

But same Installation runs fine on a Voodoo1.


Btw, i don't get any Dos game running on this voodoo2, so i think this card is broken.

With Voodoo1 the games work great.
