Testing ReWarp on an Amiga X5000

Lately, I've seen multiple posting regarding ReWarp and why the development has stopped. The truth is that it all seems to work fine, except with Warp3D. Also, some sound drivers give problems on the Sam machines, but the main problem is 3D.

I am at the moment not sure if this is because of the backwards compatibility of Warp3D, of that ReWarp is to blame. With Wazp3D everything seems ok, albeit slow.

In the video you will witness two crashes. One in the lowlevel.library (used to be much more 6 months ago, but I guess lowlevel.library has improved in the meanwhile) and one in the wazp3d.library.. The original WarpOS warp3d driver (warp3dppc.library) actually redirects all calls to warp3d.library (in this case a renamed wazp3d.library). Not sure if the crash is due to ReWarp or Wazp3D.

Without further ado, here is the video:

Like stated in the video, any help appreciated. Please redirect your comments to the git issue trackers:

Further developments...

Now with sound :-)

Some glitches here and there and a annoying mouse pointer in the way, but it's getting there. I also notice I need to silence my A3000UX PSU one of these days.

Some developments....

There has been a little movement on the WarpOS front as of late. Cowcat, who did a great job the last few years on Quake2 and BlitzQuake now tried his hands on Hexen II.

Here is the result:

Sound needs an overhaul and I guess I need a better camera, but for a first beta is it really cool. Well done!
