dx8 support? I think you are a bit confused. His gpu uses OpenGL library, not D3D. I never tried his gpu. I have a voodoo2, and opengl is not very well supported(it's very sloooooowww). Is it really good? Is it worth a try(even in my pc)?

that´s like s/he said if nikk can do another gpu whit support for d3d in dx8, or correct me if I´m wrong, because that isn´t a bad idea, he just could do it because there are no many people whit opengl cards (like me :) )

I see. Yeah, maybe it's a good idea(my video card also has a bad opengl performance). I just don't know if nikk will have time to work on both projects.

That's right. He showed a lot of potential with his nextGL plugin. I'm sure a new project would be awesome

And as far as a DX8 plugin goes... I DID start work on that before I decided to only work on NextGL, but maybe in the future ... ;)

Well just as a reminder, be thankful for what you have been given.

NickK gets nothing out of this other than experience with OGL. However I think you should also consider that DirectX8 requires new tools etc. from MickeySoft. Coding is not anywhere near as easy or as fun as you might think, it's just something some people like doing. To that extent DX8 is a completely different horsie and there are other plugins that might support it.

I won't start a GL vs DirectX debate.

Anyhow Thanks NickK for the work you've done.

Well, thanks for the help, but the only really difficult thing about making this plugin is figuring out how the PSX's GPU works properly :)
