Congratulations, Lauri. Glad it worked out for you.
I, however, still have a question. claudio asked us to find the renderer string. Based on what Lauri posted and the dialog between claudio and vitamin, I found everything we were asked to find. In my regedit memory, vendor id, and device id are already there and correct. I don't see anywhere to put the render string. The "UsefulRegistryKeys" entry shows the following. I only have the last three. Should I add any or all of the rest?
| | [Use offscreen rendering for all render targets. The main effect this has is
| | avoiding the depth buffer copy between offscreen and onscreen targets, which
| | introduces fallbacks in some drivers and exposes bugs in others. There may be a
| | performance hit depending on the specific driver. Set to "enabled" to enable.]
| | [Select what backend to use for ddraw. Valid options are:
| | gdi - Use GDI to draw on the screen
| | opengl - Use OpenGL (default)
| | The "gdi" option mostly exists for legacy reasons. Aside from bugs in the GL
| | renderer, only change this if you have a setup without OpenGL. Installing a software
| | GL implementation is the preferred solution in that case though.]
| | [Set to "disabled" to prevent applications from seeing Wine's multisampling support.
| | This is another legacy option that will most likely disappear at some point. There
| | should be no reason to set this.]
| | [Select the offscreen rendering implementation.
| | backbuffer - Render offscreen render targets in the backbuffer
| | fbo - Use framebuffer objects for offscreen rendering (default)]
| | [Selects which mode is used for mapping onscreen render targets.
| | disabled - Effectively disables render target locking
| | readdraw - Uses glReadPixels for reading, glDrawPixels for writing
| | readtex - Reading with glReadPixels, writing by drawing a textured quad (default)]
| | [This option ensures any pending drawing operations are submitted to the driver, but at
| | a significant performance cost. Set to "enabled" to enable.]
| | [When set to "disabled", this disables the use of GLSL for shaders.
| | In general disabling GLSL is not recommended, only use this for debugging purposes.]
| | [Sets the amount of reported video memory (in megabytes). The default is a simple
| | auto-detection based on the card type guessed from OpenGL capabilities.]
| | [DWORD Value (REG_DWORD): sets the pci device id of the video card. See next value.]
| [DWORD Value (REG_DWORD): sets the pci vendor id of the video card. By default Wine estimates
| these values based on OpenGL info but this doesn't work well in all cases. If you want to
| override our estimates check the output of e.g. lspci -n on Linux. For a video card this
| could show 05:00.0 0300: 10de:0402 (rev a1). In this result 0x10de (Nvidia) is the pci vendor
| id and '0x0402' (Geforce 8600GT) is the pci device id. The '0x0300' means video card.]
There is also an "OpenGL" key with the following entries. [Sorry about the dots, neither multiple spaces or tab works]
(Default)..........................REG_SZ.......(value not set)
Is the first entry where the renderer string goes?
