Wow. Very nicely done. It's almost been a year since I've been able to run this off at grad school. My crummy little laptop with only integrated graphics runs this fast as snot. Working on a GlovePIE profile for an Xbox 360 controller to use with V-Hold thing. Two sticks would also work if anyone has a spare to use as a joy-collective. Try it. Kind of nice. Need to get my x52 shipped to me.
The term "necroposting" was invented by a person with no social memory beyond a year. People with a similar hangup are those o.k. with the internet being transient vapor.
Windows 10 requires the DXGL or else it will drop into a strange corrupt video mode that only takes up 1/3 of the left side of the screen, this happened on every modern machine I've tried. It has something to do with directdraw being relatively nonexistent in Win10
It's basically the Windows 7/8 patch + WC3.MNU + DXGL and the DXGL is what makes the whole thing boot up.
I'd imagine a team of classically trained coders could write a directdraw wrapper specifically for WC3 but DXGL seems promising in its own right.
Thanks for the clarification. I thought that the DXGL program must be the key ingredient here. If I do a further version of the Comanche Gold Windows Vista/7/8 fix documentation I'll add in your discoveries and also credit you.
The Playstation4/PC Thrustmaster T-Flight HOTAS 4; in classic thrustmaster fashion, works "out of the box" after installing the PC specific drivers.
it's literally the same setup as even the oldest thrustmaster HOTAS COUGAR stick, all the buttons are relatively the same. the rudders can be put on the twist, optional foot pedals or the throttle's rudder!
Snap one up from your local best buy, install the drivers and away you go
Well, after a few years I figured out how to fix the videos, and get upscaling to 1080p stretch!
Video Mode: Custom Aspect: 16:9 (or your monitor's preferred) Vsync:Enabled Every flip Fullscreen:non-exclusive Scaling Bilinear *to taste or linear for integer resolutions to the ingame (example 2x integer 1600x1200 for 800x600?) DPI scaling mode: Disabled Custom Resolution: Recommended trys are 1920x1080, 1280x720,1600x1200, 1366*768, vga, svga, qvga...4k, 8k, 12/16k? ?
