    For KyroII users, and maybe others, T&L emulator!

    Posted on Paraknowya.com:

    Kyro-net mentions:
    "We need to enable Defer Render until Flip & Force W buffering! It also requires quite a lot of CPU power since TnL are now being emulated on CPU rather than GPU, I assumed."

    Notes on "Spiderman - The Movie" (Kyro-net):
    "The speed is quite decent. It runs around 30 - 38 fps in large open area. Our testing systems is Windows XP Pro, KyroII (Vivid!XS 32MB), AMD XP 1800, 128MB ram.
    The games runs around 60fps for my other system, GF3 (Ti200), Windows XP Pro, Intel P4, 1.8a, 256MB ram.
    So basically, the difference between HW TnL and Emulate HW TnL are around 10 - 20 fps!"

    Ouch... Oh well, it can still run

    Btw, how comes such a jump in performance? Judging by the screens, ok, the character's model is quite detailed, there are a couple of neat lens flare/window reflections, but hello... the buildings are just pure "US architecture genius"... i.e. SO DAMN BLOCKY!! ok ok j/k, put that Smith&Wesson away please

    OK, no Smith&Wesson, how about an M16 instead.?

    I though the CPU always did the T&L anyway. That's always been the reason the KII needs a fast CPU. I hear they launched a KII ultra that was clocked higher and had hardware T&L. Sounded cool to me.
    Give what you cannot keep to gain what you cannot lose.

    Yup, the KyroII SE, with a mixed software/hardware TnL actually...
    They claim a 15% performance boost over the normal KyroII. We'll see.

    The thing with Spiderman is that the game refuses to start if it doesn't detect hardware TnL on the graphic card. So this progy seems to simply cheat the game.
