DXDLL 1.0 (not Geforce MX compatible)

Recommended Posts

aight, im using a Radeon 9800 SE with the latest catalyst

AMD athlon 64 3200 (@2ghz)

512mb RAM (a bit to low but i cant afford a upgrade right now)

btw, can you who run on Radeon 9800 show some screens how it looks for you and tell me what settings you use?

Weird, I can set the strength and the size all the way up and game doesn't get that blurry.

That's an understatement, it's 4 generations behind the Geforce required. crazy_o.gif

Indeed. And I thought my GF2MX was too old for OFP:R. crazy_o.gif

I think if you set your Direct3d Mipmap settings to "Highest performance" instead of "most detailed", things go blurry.....worth checking.....maybe you have it set to give the best performance, and with the dxdll in, it has to sacrifice more detail for performance........

......total guess, but i know i played with by mipmap settings and everything went blurry..... smile_o.gif

Yep, worth of try. I was nearly in verge of madness once when I couldn't see those letters in briefing properly. Then I accidentally checked my Direct3d settings and noticed this.  tounge_o.gif

I was fiddling around with my OpFlashPreferences and changing lod detail and object texture resolution and all of a sudden some parts of the DXDLL stopped working (like the WATER REFLECTION!) and now I can't get it back.

Not by turning the settings back, not by "reinstalling" dxdll.. nothing.

any sugestions?

make sure you have not deselected direct3d hardware T&L in flashpointpreferences...

Did you check your texture resolutions for efects, etc under OPFR preferences rock.gif .

Hmm, i seem to be experiencing some strange graphical artifacts every now and then (spikes), sometimes the cloud textures start to look fubar'ed and then the artifacts invade my screen crazy_o.gif , i do have Llaumax but i did before and it only started happening when i instaled DXDLL and ran the sky installer without the water textures so i could have the original water textures and reflective water could work crazy_o.gif , it only happens rarely and alt-tab solves it right away but i still would like to find if this is related to DXDLL, Llaumax or a combination of both but i cant reproduce this bug since it happens very rarely sad_o.gif .

Are your landscape textures set to 512*512 pixels or more? The minimum for reflections to work was either 512*512 or 1024*1024, I can't remember.
