nVIDIA Profile Inspector

If you have a nvidia video card the profile inspector can help make the game work a little better. You can download it here: https://ci.appveyor.com/project/Orbmu2k/nvidiaprofileinspector/build/artifacts To use: Install and run it. Delete the entry for WCW Nitro (I heard it was a terrible game anywa...

Re: 30fps patch for base i76

I still would like to merge this with the patched Nitro.exe from here. (or merge the stuff from this PatchIII into my patch). so that's still on the todo list. But as you noted, the GOG version is a bit different than the version from the disc. so i'll have to do some more digging to find out how t...

Re: Texture corruption in both glide and D3D modes

From my understanding you make a bat file with that in it followed by the executable for the game you wish to launch (nitro of i76 in out case). This shows that this may actually be a but (or perhaps just a limitation) of the mechwarrior 2 engine i76 runs on. It's too bat increasing the memory valu...

Re: Texture corruption in both glide and D3D modes

I meant add 7 AI drivers for instant melee :P

From your second link:
I have the Nitro Pack and the game also used to crash after a short
while.  I remedied this problem by disabling the extra 2mb of texture
memory.
SET SST_TMUMEM_SIZE=2

Well this is interesting, where would you enter that?

Re: Texture corruption in both glide and D3D modes

I'm actually using the latest version, 1.54. Unfortunately same of the features from that beta don't appear in this version. I did manage to get around the texture swap issue by choosing the original voodoo card and limiting vram to 2mb, thanks. I did manage to find an interesting glitch though, on...

Re: Texture corruption in both glide and D3D modes

Actually I haven't gotten nGlide running, I was using dgvoodoo. Regardless, the issue it the same. Try using the settings I posted in this thread on Oct 20, 2016. If you're using dgvoodoo2, your settings may be different however you may still be able to tweak the memory setting to minimize the prob...

Re: Texture corruption in both glide and D3D modes

Nevermind, seams to be an issue with the wrapper: http://www.zeus-software.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=848 nglide is simply not made for Interstate '76 family games. It is also poorly designed, as customizing the settings that are not found in the gui requires the end user to be far more capable than...

Re: Texture corruption in both glide and D3D modes

I suppose I should post progress since I seem to have the textures mostly under control using dgvoodoo1.5. I found a guide that helped however I had to make some changes to get it to work: http://interstate76.wikia.com/wiki/Fixes_%26_Tweaks + Run dgVoodooSetup.exe Set 'Renderer API' to Direct3D9 in ...

Re: Play Nitro Pack on Windows 7/8 (First Revision)

I did this last night on my friend's computer using DXTORY on his AMD chipset. What's nice is the current version of DXTORY has its own framerate display so I didn't have to run Fraps at the same time. I first set it to 60fps but the napalm hose and AI were still buggy so I tried 30fps, then 24. At ...

Re: Texture corruption in both glide and D3D modes

See also: https://www.gog.com/forum/interstate_series/the_groovin_i_76_workaround_thread The bug where the incorrect sprites are drawn, especially after blowing up the fireworks stand is directly related to the amount of texture memory configured in dgvoodoo. I've found that the game needs at least ...

Re: Texture corruption in both glide and D3D modes

I tried nglide to no avail, I have a feeling it isn't made for intel chipsets :P Cunversely a friend if mine has to use nglide as dgvoodoo won't work for him with his amd (formerly ati) chipset. I stubled upon a web page with a fix that may remedy the problem. I can't wait to try it out: http://www....

Re: Texture corruption in both glide and D3D modes

I have had this problem for over a decade and I'm pretty sure it's a bug in the game or the glide wrapper. I have experienced this problem with at least 3 different computers, all using the dgvoodoo 1 glide wrapper. The first computer was a Windows 98 install with the game installed with the origin...
