Just wondering is there anyway to get these games working in Vorpx? I know Max Payne is a DX8 game so there’s no chance of this working right? but when I try Max Payne 2 it doesn’t do anything and it’s a dx9 game. I tried tons of different profiles and no luck. Also tried renaming it to other games but nothing works any hope of these games to work? I would love so much to play these games with a FPS mod in VR with 3d geometry.Nov 3, 2016 at 8:30pm #122441psyxParticipant
So no chance then? I know these games aren’t officially supported but I got other games to work that aren’t supported. Any chance for these classics to get Vorpx support?Dec 27, 2019 at 2:23pm #191291stonivrParticipant
old but gold i there any solution ?Dec 28, 2019 at 11:43am #191314
You might be able to make them work with dgVoodoo2, which can converts DX7/8 calls to DX11. vorpX has a profile for dgVoodoo2. No guarantee that it will work, but worth a shot.
- Download and install dgVoodoo2 by copying the right DLL into the game folder (Max Payne 2 is DX8, not sure about MaxPayne 1).
- Open the ‘Local Profiles’ page in the vorpX config app.
- Make a copy of the dgVoodoo2 profile, keep special shaders
- Assign the game’s .exe to your newly created profile
If that works, it would be great if you could share the profile for others in the vorpX cloud. Ideally with short instructions regarding dgVoodoo2 in the description.Dec 29, 2019 at 3:59am #191352stonivrParticipant
Thank you Ralf i think i get max payne 2 to work its crash when ever i press esc to go back in the game menu, but its work. Its hard to use the vorpx menu i shoot when i press with mouse in vorpx menu or move when i navigate with keyboard keys maybe pause key work. dgVoodoo2 is really interesting profile maybe can i play classic carmageddon 3dfx next is it possible ? I was playing with dgVoodoo2 carmageddon 1, 2 3dfx emulation back in the day.Dec 29, 2019 at 3:22pm #191363
Definitely worth a try. Can’t really say whether it will work though.
The dgVoodoo2 profile is mainly provided for you guys to experiment with, I’ll test it every now and then with a handful of games to make sure it does what it’s supposed to do, but I can’t really tell which games do work in the end and which may not.Dec 29, 2019 at 11:02pm #191366
Ive tried to fix both games before with DGVoodoo, IIRC the first game was only partly 3D and kept crashing. Spend several hours especially with version 2 but alwys ended up with some objects being either 2D or displaced. I think 1st one was DX7, 2nd one definately DX8.Gave up after a while..Dec 30, 2019 at 10:35am #191387
I’ll check them on occasion. Good old Max would deserve to be vorpXed one way or the other. No promises though, making changes to the dgVoodoo2 shader parser is a bit dangerous since that may have unforeseen consequences for games that work fine.Dec 30, 2019 at 2:26pm #191391jjenssonParticipant
Yeah, i agree – such a classic like Max Payne 1/2 should be in the VorpX library sooner or later (even if dgVoodoo2 is needed).Dec 30, 2019 at 2:33pm #191392
I knew it was a mistake to even mention dgVoodoo before I did it… :)
Just a heads-up that the dgVoodoo2 profile is purely there for you to play with it and see what is possible. dgVoodoo2 itself is a moving target from my perspective. I have zero influence on its development, it may fail at any time and there won’t be any “official” support for any dgVoodoo2 games at all.
That said, I re-check the profile from time to time to see whether it still generally works, and maybe (*maybe*!) I’ll add something in the future, but do not expect anything in that regard ever. And even if I do, that will still be considered unsupported as far as I’m concerned.Dec 30, 2019 at 3:30pm #191393
Please note, my posting above wasnt meant as a complaint, rather a report that someone had sat down already on those games. With DGVoodoo2 its just the same as other DX9/11 games, we can not get all of them to work and im my eyes its best to leave the parser as it is.Dec 30, 2019 at 3:41pm #191394
All good, I just had to make as clear as possible that this isn’t officially supported since I failed to do that originally when I suggested dgVoodoo above.
If/when I have some spare time to burn and feel like it, I may look into it, but don’t expect anything. ‘Officially’ supporting an app like dgVoodoo that has to deal with hundreds of games itself would be a can of worms I couldn’t even open if I wanted to unfortnately.Dec 30, 2019 at 4:57pm #191398
Couldnt sit still without trying something else ;-)
Max Payne 2
I made a profile through the DX9 fixed function pipeline that is adjusted a bit in an unusual way, but works at least in Z3D, G3D has the same glitches as with DGVoodoo2. I evened out the depth problem for certain objects depending on their distance to the camera (door frames) with a negative “Focal Offset” value. Thats why i suggest to play the game in Cinema Modes, though Full VR is also working.

Surpise surprise, thats how things change sometimes, i was able to get the latest steam version of Max Payne 1 to run in 3D with VorpX, the retail game was notoroiusly crashing here, see details here: https://www.vorpx.com/forums/topic/max-payne-d3d8to9/
