Here they are:

First we'll begin with Quake 2 and QPong mod, map qpong1. After some testing with gl_ext_palettedtextures, I got miscolored textures. Vid_restart fixed them though. <a href="http://www.netppl.fi/~tumu/icdpics/qpsc00.jpg">[Image 1 from QPong]</a> <a href="http://www.netppl.fi/~tumu/icdpics/qpsc01.jpg">[Image 2 from QPong]</a>.

Here's my video config what I was using at that time:

640x480x16bit windowed
gl_picmip 1, gl_playermip 1, gl_texturemode GL_LINEAR_MIPMAP_NEAREST, gl_ext_palettedtexture 0, gl_swapinterval 0, gl_ext_pointparameters 0, gl_ext_multitexture 0, gl_ext_swapinterval 1, gl_ext_compiled_vertex_array 1, gl_vertex_arrays 0, gl_texturesolidmode default, gl_texturealphamode default, gl_dynamic 1, gl_finish 0, gl_shadows 0, gl_modulate 3.5, vid_fullscreen 0

Another one is testing with Tribes and 1.6 patch which should contain new OpenGL code to speed up the action. But as before (ICDb1 and ICDb2), corrupted and miscolored textures were appearing all over playfield. Here are the screenshots: <a href="http://www.netppl.fi/~tumu/icdpics/sshot0000.jpg">[My config]</a> <a href="http://www.netppl.fi/~tumu/icdpics/sshot0001.jpg">[Ingame shot 1]</a> <a href="http://www.netppl.fi/~tumu/icdpics/sshot0002.jpg">[Ingame shot 2]</a> <a href="http://www.netppl.fi/~tumu/icdpics/sshot0003.jpg">[Ingame shot 3]</a> <a href="http://www.netppl.fi/~tumu/icdpics/sshot0004.jpg">[Ingame shot 4]</a> <a href="http://www.netppl.fi/~tumu/icdpics/sshot0005.jpg">[Ingame shot 5]</a>

So, what I and many other G200 users would like to know is that are these (and many more texture related) problems going to be addressed in 5.20.xx release of PowerDesk?

Hi Tumu,

first you should update your bios (setup351 from the unified section)

then see if the probs are still there ...


Asus P2B-S @ 112MHz FSB - Bios 1009 final
Celeron300A @ 504Mhz
128MB 7ns SDRAM
G400 DualHead 32MB SGRAM @ 201 MHz memory clock

I'll be on holiday for the coming three weeks and I miss you folks already ;-)

I updated the bios to 2.3, and still no go. Those texture problems are still there.

The question is still unanswered, are those texture problems going to be addressed in 5.20.xx (or in 5.15.xx, if it's released instead)?

Since no one is responding, why dont you send an email to Matrox instead. This is not a tech support site.
