PowerVR SGL Wrapper


Created on 2015-01-12 by Tuxality, last modified on 2017-04-14

SGL wrapper allows to run native PowerVR games on generic GPU supporting OpenGL (mainly old, pure 1.1). For now my current target is to make PowerVR version of Virtual On to work. Some other games are working too like Nightmare Creatures, some of them just are booting properly with null or buggy rendering like Turok, Motorhead, Moon Racer, just need to implement in wrapper the way the game renders.

Media with current and old versions of PowerSGL wrapper are posted below just for reference.

➤ Version: A4 (outdated)


Corrected a lot of SGL issues, now rendering is very close to the original hardware. Still missing fog and mipmapping. DirectDraw is still mostly unimplemented yet, so overlay in Virtual ON is still not working. Optimized some places in code, so it runs quite well on a little more time accurate hardware.
