RReady Rendition Verité Wrapper

by sharangad Mon Nov 20, 2023 8:05 am

I don't know whether legacy PC emulation belong in this forums, but here goes:

I'm working on a wrapper for the Rendition Verité V2200 (an old video card from the 90s). The Windows side of it is almost done and can run all 13 games though a few need DxWnd or dgVood's DirectDraw component. The DOS part is still being looked at.

I haven't had much too much feedback, especially from AMD GPU users:

Formula 1 '97


Grand Prix Legends '96:


SODA Offroad '96:


Monster Truck Madness 2:


vQuake 2 (Quake 2)


Sub Culture


vHexen II (Hexen II)




Die by the Sword


Mech Warrior 2


Interstate '76 (Needs DxWnd


Interstate '76 Nitro (Needs DxWnd)


Heavy Gear


The last stable version of the wrapper can be found here:

RReady Fully Tested Release( November 6 2023)
https://1drv.ms/u/s!As-dKk-N73dSlmIfZk1 ... k?e=FdXAcS
MD5: 6e75dda5f5dde0d5577383b7bc90480f
- Fixes VH2 texture corruption issues.
- Adds MSAA as the default vQuake 2/vHexen II AA mode. This is a stopgap measure until a full implementation of Rendition's proprietary Quake AA is fully implemented.

(This release is live on the Windows store as well without the watermark though it costs money)

The official thread can be found here:


I'd be really happy for feedback and sorry if this forum isn't the right place for it.

- Ability to restrict VRAM by setting MaxVRAM=<nn>(Megabytes). The Golems in VH2.exe correctly change colour when VRAM is restricted to between 4-14 MB. Restricting VRAM will severely affect performance and is not recommended. It is also unsupported in other apps.
- RRosetta's renderer switching (using F1-F3) work correctly but for F3 (Direct3D) to work dgVoodo's directdraw/direct3d files need to be copied to the same folder as RRosetta.exe. OpenGL to RRedline switch to work.
- Screenshot capability in games such as WinDie.exe (save game image) or games which have a console command 'screenshot' should work (except VH2.exe. This application appear to do a copy to clipboard and does not currently work.). Screenshot is correctly downsampled now.
- End credits background textures in F1red.exe should work.
- Bilinear filtering (using shaders) is enforced for paletted textures.
- Memory safety checks removed. Should be as fast as before.

- Auto-downloader now downloads modified ref_v1k which support native fullscreen on modern Windows. Existing users will need to delete the existing ref_v1k, remove Quake 2 from the apps list and add it back in. Alternatively directly downloading the file from the link and manually patching it will be required. Force fullscreen and will no longer be required in rendition.cfg along with 'set vid_fullscreen "0 'in baseq2/config.cfg. The change in ref_v1k is only 1 byte.

Sorry for the spam. This should be the last update for a while (barring showstoppers).
RReady 01 December 2023

MD5: 3f280c6df107d21dbbec54891bbfe0d4

RLauncher fixes:
- All vQuake 2 and vHexen II binary hacks in their own section along with warning about not being thoroughly tested each release.
- Corrects vQuake 2 unlocked resolutions (1280x1024 is selectable for underwater resolutions. 1152x864 is the highest full screen resolution.) For vQuake 2 unlocked resolutions, the underwater resolution should be higher than the game's internal full screen resolution. For vHexen II it should be at or below the game resolution. Rendering issues may otherwise arise.
- Adds vHexen II 72/144 max fps limit and 11/22 kHz audio selection
- Existing Redline.dll and verite.dll rebuilt with latest compiler update. Hopefully nothing should break.
