(DX7)
Can only be run with 'Unspecified' scaling mode without resolution forcing to avoid resizing the application window otherwise the demo viewport gets scaled improperly.
Also, this demo checks for an ATI GPU so 'ATI 8500' preset has to be selected in the config.
Force vSync externally or the water wavels way too fast.

ATI Tech Demo - Treasure Chest

Status:Usable
Resolution override:see remarks
MSAA:OK
Wrapper settings:Default
This demo cannot be run in fullscreen because the mouse cursor sticks to the top of the screen and the demo stalls. There is built-in Alt-Enter support for switching to windowed mode, use this after the demo has started. Externally forced windowed mode doesn't work either (same mouse problem) so forced resolution makes no sense.
Other than that, rendering is OK and very nice.

nVidia Tech Demo - Chameleon

Status:Minor issues

Forced resolution causes mouse input anomalies and the demo becomes unusable.
Also, drawstyle 'Points' ends in full white triangle rendering because this type of the polygon rendering is not currently supported in dgVoodoo.

You need D3DRM.dll for this demo (isn't part of the OS since Windows Vista).
Forcing vSync is recommended for this one.

I'm not sure at all if the demo is OK. It seems to have transparency problems but I get the same natively, and, looking at it at code-level doesn't explain the opposite either.

Well, I don't know what to say about it: it works on my nVidia card but crashes on my AMD one. There may be a bug in the wrapper somewhere that the nVidia driver survives. :S

This demo has memory-access overrun bug so it may crash at the beginning, after selecting a resolution, or in windowed mode.
Playing with in-demo and externally forced reso settings can solve the problem.

The only way to run it properly in high-res is forcing resolution externally and choosing 640x480 in the demo. Otherwise it renders only to the top-left corner of the screen.

While the demo itself plays fine, there is a serious sky (and dome stair) glitch because dgVoodoo does not support texture wrapping. :(

This demo cannot start in fullscreen through dgVoodoo because DXGI doesn't like its app window. The only way to watch it in fullscreen is typing the resolution you want, starting it in windowed mode and forcing into fullscreen manually.

Otherwise the demo window size changes which distort the rendering viewport.

Demo supports resolution setting, so no forcing is needed.
Also, this must be run in Win98 compat mode or else it gets stuck at random points because of some kind of timing thing (infinite loop).

This is a DDraw demo (so resolution forcing doesn't make much sense) but one of my favorites. Very nice coding.
Unfortunately it has a memory-access overrun bug and it can easily crash at the beginning in the dancing part.
