Hello,


I know that trueSpace 6.6 does only work on my Mac (Boot Camp) if DX is disabled but I can't remember the way how to do that any more. As far as I remember some cfg files had to be modified/deleted to disable DX for trueSpace.


Hope you can help me!

Holding CTRL while firing up the program lets you choose what mode tS starts in (wire, opengl or DirectX). This should let you stop it trying to run DX on startup.


Whether Macs have CTRL keys etc though I can't say....


HTH!

Well, that ctrl thing was not the solution I received from the Caligari service via e-mail two years ago or so. Unfortunately I can't find that e-mail no longer. Anyway, that ctrl thing does not work for me.


What I know is that the solution was to change something in the tS directory. What I don't know and what I ask here for is the specific way.

Hi , the only file that I can think of is called CalDDraw.dll , if you rename this file to eg, "_CalDDraw.dll_name_me_back" then this will force 6.6 to bypass some aspects of dx when its loading.


file is found in the tS directory, .


with bootcamp and the latest version and the latest drivers for the card it should work ok for 6.6 without having to change the file and in most cases if using bootcamp and xp it should allow for 7.6 to run ok on the machine as well.


thanks

Paul

This works for me. Thank you, Cayenne.
