GDI in the new update is a bad renderer for win10

Recommended Posts

Where is the OpenGL ddraw? OpenGL renderer works perfectly on my computer. But GDI has frame skip and no cursor after minimization. Apart from new map pack, what's this for?

What exactly does "Automatic" mean? What kind of processing does it do to identify which renderer is best for the user?

(ive been out of the loop for a while)

It will try to use OpenGL and if that's not possible then it switches to GDI.

cnc-ddraw needs OpenGL version 2.0, ts-ddraw i think 1.2. If that's not available then it will switch to GDI.

It's also using glGetError() to check for errors, if there is an error then it will switch to GDI too.

 

It shows a warning message too: http://cnc.cloudns.pro/Test/index.php?video=RedAlert_Driver_Warning.mp4

But after i deleted the cncnet client completely and reinstalled it, the CncNet on my computer still use GDI automatically. I have to replace the GDI with 79kb OpenGl ddraw by renaming.

Do you get the message about updating your graphics card drivers?

No. My graphics card is Nvidia 1060 3GB. Latest driver for it.
