Alter Echo

I forgot to post about this (as it happened 2 weeks ago). I'm a bit sleepy so I'll make it quick. I got the game Alter Echo (XDK 5233) to show some stuff. I don't know what's going on (I'm assuming it's a problem with palletized or swizzled texture formats). I'm assuming what happens is it shows a loading or some other intro screen and then shows a dirty disc error as it shows more gibberish after this and halts. I'll have to find out what it's doing later on. There's a chance that the hex values of a certain D3DFORMAT definition might have changed and Cxbx is trying to use the wrong texture format. Never did get around to fixing that. I'd like to say more, but I'm too busy and tired. Cheers.



  1. well, I guess you could force each format and see which of them renders it right..
