Beyond3D/ATI shader competition
Wednesday, November 5, 2003 | Permalink

The Beyond3D/ATI shader competition has finally presented its winners. My contribution (a roller coaster demo) got a runner up position, which means I'll get to replace my 9700 with a 9800 in the not too distant future.

My demo is now available on the 3D page.

why does this demo look so ugly on my GFFX5900??
and it runs a bit slow...
i'm using forceware 52.16 drivers

A bit slow is a given. It's ps2.0 shader heavy. It's a little slow even on Radeon 9700.
Not sure what you mean with the ugly part though, got a screenshot of that?

ok humus..

it is 100% the nvidia driver, because the new 52.70 doesn't even render the trail of your rollercoaster

what was microsofts "slogan"?
It's NOT a bug, it's a FEATURE!

now nvidia got its own..
It's NOT a bug, it's a CHEAT!

try the humus patch 304 and see if it renders correctly then
