"Is Cxbx dead, then?" No! And STOP f@#%ing asking me that!!!! If I've said it once, I've said it a million times... it's NOT over until I say it is! *sigh*, sorry, I just get tired of n00bs asking this everytime I go for at least 1 month without updating Cxbx.
But while I'm at it, I want to ask you all a favour. Please tell me what games are giving you the following error "EmuD3DDeferredRender/TextureState was not found!", okay? I can pop in here and there and see if I can fix games that give us this error (as long as the game doesn't use the D3D8LTCG library (check your Xbe dump); I'm not interested in those games atm). That being said, you now officially have a reason to bug me :)
So, that's all for now. In the future, I'll see what else I can do from time to time.
