The "Witch Doctor" is at it again!

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I got carried away with the topic subject. Sorry for using an intriguing phrase to get your attention but if I had said the "Voo" word or 3DFX, nobody would open this post.I am a Voodoo 3500 user :-eek (yikes!), absolutelly aware of my inability to view reflective a/c textures, crisp virtual cockpits or water surface effects. I am more than happy to exchange those FS2002 goodies for my video in/out capabilities, excellent DVD playback, great 3D acceleration, and the TV and video capture features this card supplies. All without the hefty price tag of an ATI "All in Wonder" or the sort.However, I haven't heard many Voodoo users complain about blurry textures on Gmax aircraft. I get very crisp FSDS planes but even the default FS2002 aircraft are out of focus. Same with every Gmax built freeware aircraft. I have created mipmaps using Imagetool and converted textures from 32 to 16 bit to correct the pitch black or "hippie" paint jobs on newly loaded Gmax birds. The bad part is that they get replaced by the intended paint scheme albeit all blurred out.Anybody wanna risk a guess on how to improve a/c textures using this card? I run an ATHLON 650Mhz processor on an ASUS K7 mobo and 256MB of PC133RAM, latest 3DFX drivers for the card.Thanks in advance!Mauricio
