Direct3D5 Version of Pod - Doesn't start, only black screen

Post by PacMani » September 1st, 2013, 4:13 pm

Hi there,

I tried to wrap the Direct3D5 version of UbiSoft "Pod" (Planet of Death) to OpenGL.
However, the game doesn't even start up.
The window gets created and the resolution set, but the window stays black and only closing it via Alt+F4 is possible (it then crashes and you can kill it).

Normally, a short video with an old Intel Indeo codec will be "played" (it's actually a still image being shown for a few seconds) at first. But the wrapper doesn't seem to get to that point.

My graphics card is AMD Radeon 6850 again. If you need more info, please ask me :)

D3D is only partially working (as pointed out multiple times on the home page)
