Amigamerlin's 3.1 R11 driver set is on line and available for public download.

This new driver set is based on Alpha 29 Direct3D core, contains a new opengl library and it's the first Amigamerlin release with a "new our dll".

The installation program will correctly install to the system a dxtn.dll. This DLL, which we have discuss here, it will be only a container lacking of functions. The user should replace it with the real one compiling the source from Daniel Borca's site. Any way drivers will works well also without the replacement. We chose this solution to prevent copyright problems.

What's new?

D3D Section

New D3D section with a great DX9 compatibility and high performance increase
Need for speed now can be playable at 800x600x32bit
Virtual Rally 3 now run smoothly, does NOT REQUIRE 3DAnalyzer, and can be playable 800x600x32bit e FSAA2x bit with Voodoo5 5500 and 1024x768x32 2xFSAA with Voodoo5 6000 with 100% in performance increase !!
Halo in game some texture and perfomance problem are gone but there is a lot to do to be fully playable
Mafia, GTA3, GTA3 Vice City, Spiderman the Movie (require T&L patch) UT2003, UT2004, Max Vietcong, Payne, Max Payne 2 F1GP4, all have quality and speed improvement.

Opengl Section

New Opengl Section and addedd a new dll:DXTN.dll!! The improvements regard in particular T&L routine. All games tried show FPS increase and higher compatibility of new Dxtn.dll.
Testing was done with Call of Duty, Call Of Duty United Offensive, MOHAA, MOH Breakthru, MOH Spearhead, RTCW, Enemy Territory, Star Wars Jedy Knight, Star Wars – Jedy Outcast, Serious Sam Second Encounter, Never Winter Night. Most of them were demos, but the new DLL should will works fine also in complete games.

Jointly with the new driver release will be available an HOW TO INSTALL guide (sorry, in italian only at this moment) to avoid any setup problems. Installation must be executed NECESSARILY through the video card control panel.

Yay, endlich. =) Und dann auch noch 11 statt 10. ;)

Ich habe den mal etwas getestet. Meiner Meinung nach der bisher beste Treiber. Aber schaut euch mal die paar Werte an:


SFFT A29 => 2622 3DMarks
AM 3.1-R11 => 2683 3DMarks

MechWOLLIers Canals09, 1024x768x32

SFFT A29 => 16,0 fps
AM 3.1-R11 => 16,3 fps

Unreal Tournament
PCGH-Timedemo "benchmark", 1024x768x16

SFFT A29 => 96,5 fps
AM 3.1-R11 => 96,9 fps

Max Payne 2
"Blowing Up", 1024x768x32

SFFT A29 => 28,5 fps
AM 3.1-R11 => 37,7 fps

Tbred @ ~215x11 = 2370 MHz
Abit NF7-S 2.0
2x 512MB @ 215 MHz, 2.5-3-2-11 @ Dual-Channel
Voodoo5 5500 PCI @ 180/180

Die Max Payne-Werte sind genial!

WoW rennt übrigens subjektiv auch besser, Call of Duty ist auf minimalen Settings spielbar, aber in der TM Sunrise Demo habe ich nach wie vor ein übles Problem. Das LOD scheint hier blitzartig hin und her zu springen ... mal ist alles gestochen (über)scharf, dann extrem matschig und undetailliert. Bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten ein Höllenritt ... aber lustig.
