Default Direct3D rendering dll compiling help

I have a very old Nvidia Riva TNT II, and opengl doesn't work with this
card. I have played in opengl on other computers, and I
would really like to play with MD2s on mine. I know
no one compiles r_d3d.dll, and I know it's just a wrapper to opengl.
I'm not asking anyone to compile anything, I'm
just asking for the source and instructions on how to compile it.
I have gcc installed, and a compiling environment set up. I have
the SRB2 devpacks and dev-c++, if there is anything else I need,
tell me! Thanks in advance!

PS: I'll upload the dll onto my website once I compile it.

We have a topic like this, and you're just going to be told the same thing. We haven't got an r_d3d.dll.

I feel your pain. I used to have a similar graphics card. The same one, actually.

uh... yes we have, just nobody felt like building it. I just found the source for it, and I'm downloading the directX SDK as we speak. I'll post a link to it as soon as I get it to work.

Gah, not working. I get a bunch of "Default int" errors, and a couple of syntax errors. I'm using Visual Studio 2005 pro, if that's any help.




But.............................



If someone would post a precompiled version, that would be great!

What are you talking about? OpenGL runs AWESOME on a TNT2!

If you can find drivers for it. I couldn't get working drivers for Windows on the official Nvidia website (so I had to use onboard stuff).

And that meant no OpenGL support, and as everyone should know by now, forcing SRB2 to be displayed in a lag-o-vision with no red in fullscreen.

Really? Well! If I can't get the drivers for it off the nvidia website, where can I get them? Running winXP

EDIT: Oh, yeah. Device Manager says it's a "Model 64/Model 64 Pro"

Dunno. I know for a fact that OpenGL drivers exist for it under Win9x.

try googling "Nvidia TNT2 OpenGL Windows XP" or something.

I installed a driver for it from some driver site... Said it supported opengl and winXP... Is there some problem with the source of r_d3d.dll? or is it because nobody feels like compiling it? Well, I kinda would like this dll, and, as I said, I can't seem to compile it. Direct3D stuff runs perfectly on my computer. Thanks!

I think I've found something promising... Detonator 4 XP. I'll keep trying to get a download, and if someone else finds it please post here. Thanks!

EDIT: Nevermind. I got it working. Looks great!

Actually, I forgot where I found it. I'll upload it to sendspace or something. This is NOT r_d3d.dll, this is opengl for some old nVidia cards.
