conflict?
« on: April 22, 2003, 11:51:21 AM »

Is anyone using the taskbar replacement mobydock?
http://www.mobydock.tk

I just installed the latest version which uses a directX 9 renderer and I am experiencing (is this a word?) great slowdowns when I try any wintermute game (compiled or not).

Never heard of it, I'll try it. Does WME slow down in both windowed and full screen mode?

In windowed version the game in unplayable. In Fullscreen mode everything is a lot better but not good enough.

In debug mode the engine says that it runs the game in 300+ frames/second so the problem should be with the graphic card.

With the previous version of mobydock (which used a DirectX 8 renderer) there was no problem...

OK, I was testing it on the WME demo game and I didn't experience any slowdowns. The framerate only drops when I move the mouse pointer over the MobyDock toolbar and it starts to animate the icons. When the toolbar is inactive, WME runs almost full-speed. Also no problems in full-screen mode (WinXP, GeForce2, Detonators 4345, DirectX 9).

So, it must be a problem with the Radeon & Catalyst Drivers.... OK, I guess I have to live with an older version of Mobydock untill Ati releases Catalyst 3.3 (if those solve my problem ofcourse).
