NFS5 Porsche Unleashed: white textures
12.07.10 at 16:43:18
 
Hi guys,

I bought recently a Voodoo 4500 AGP from Ebay and now I'm running NFS2 - NFS5 on it.
So far everything runs fine except NFS Porsche. There's a bug with textures at Monte Carlo Tracks and Zone Industrielle. If the headlights are turned on, most of the textures turning white. Probably that ones should be lightened up? Maybe there's something wrong with the alpha channel?

I tried to capture a screenshot but its distorted (kinda scanlines and so on). I'm running the card on a Windows ME System with an Athlon 1800+ and 2xFSAA turned on.

Somebody maybe knows how to fix that bug? I'd advise myself to update the driver, but that's not that easy. I installed the newest I found on the web.

Greetings from Germany

Strange, try turning the headlamps setting to vertex instead of projected, or the other way around. It should be in the advanced settings. Failing that, updating to a different driver could help. Patch NFS Porsche to the latest patch as well. Might be a bug with the actual game, rather then the driver.

Uhmmm, sounds to me like somebody forgot to "buy" the game...

Maybe you have a version from the Internet, not from the original CD ? A very bad rip, with compressed textures into jps or something like that, to have a very small pack size...

what driver are you using? some 3rdparty drivers have problems with certain old games (beta glides).

Hi,

I'm getting the same problem, but in my 8Mb Monster Voodoo2.

I'm using the FastVoodoo2 4.0 drivers, DirectX8.1 under Win98SE.

I'm trying to figure out the issue too...

I'll keep an eye on this topic!

Im using vertex light instead of projected, and nowit looks ok.

Sadly, this issue is new fr me, on my older Pentium 233 it runs okay with projected lights

It seems to me some bug involving Voodoo Drivers/CPU Mhz, because in the P233 and in my P3 1Ghz I have EXACT SAME setup of Widows and drivers. Sad, so sad.

The bugs with games are evident when I'm trying to use Pure Glide DOS games like Carmageddon and Whiplash,for example. In the P233 anything Glide/DOS runs perfecty, meanwhile in the P3 1Ghz there's no way to run Glide DOS games.

Strange, but in some way, bit funny  Tongue
