Chris' Opengl renderer release 2.9

Just a heads up. Chris opengl renderer got updated a few days ago. Version 2.9 can be found here.

*Update 10-5. Chris is now also working on a D3d driver. Check his site.

Quote:
Version 2.9 is released. It has a new option called BufferTileQuads, which should speed up text rendering. It was easy to add and seems to work well in various cases. It's disabled by default because it's new, but it should be fairly safe to enable. UseSSE was changed to a True/False option and it now supports dynamic updates.

A few other changes are also present:
- Improved alignment on main buffering arrays.
- Minor optimizations in multipass detail texture code.
- Removed a few instructions from 3 vertex gouraud polygon SSE fastpath.
- Minor optimizations in buffer additional clipped vertices function.
- Fixed bug in buffer size remaining calculation for clipped gouraud polygons. Note that this could not actually cause a failure in version 2.8 because of other factors.
- Other minor optimizations.
- Other minor changes.

Little confused...

So is this better than the original OpenGL drivers that came with UT/INF with my ATI Radeon 9200se? Or worse?

This is an alternative opengl renderer for UT. If opengl is what you're using now then consider this an update.

The what / when / where / how you can all find in Crowze's thread.

so do you have to change/ add settings under the "[OpenGLDrv.OpenGLRenderDevice]" part?

Where does buffertilequads go, then? at the top, at the bottom, or does it not make any difference?

Doesn't matter. You don't even have to put it in, BufferTileQuads will be default value. Add it only if you want to try it.

This release apparently breaks GammaCorrectScreenshots. True of False it doesn't work anymore.

* Chris is also experimenting with D3d now. Who knows it could be good...
