Default Dawn Sleeps With ATI - Radeon R3x0 Dawn OpenGL Wrapper

I'm excited to release an OpenGL wrapper that allows any ATI DX9 video card owner to run Nvidia's awesome Dawn demo. The wrapper was sent to us anonomously by a group of MIT engineering students. I've tried it on the Radeon 9800 Pro 256MB DDR II board and it runs great! We've taken a bunch of screenshots and did a small writeup.


When I first saw Nvidia’s new GeForce FX Dawn demo I was quite impressed. ATI’s demos done by Alex and the ATI Research crew are of course impressive as well, but the Dawn demo had a certain appeal. Maybe it was the human form, life-like facial expressions, realistic skins tones and texture, or most likely the sexual appeal. So it was disappointing to find out that this magnificent demo would not be able to run on ATI’s DX9 graphic cards. Luckily a group of MIT engineering students were disappointed by the same thing (also rumoured that they were unhappy with Nvidia's image quality and performance) and were up to the task of making it work on ATI hardware (and the brains!). The end result was an opengl wrapper that made the demo run smoothly on ATI hardware. Most impressive!

Also as a special treat for our forum users to see a different "view" of the Dawn demo follow these instructions.



"View" mode without wings rename fairy.exe to 3dmark03.exe

"View" mode with wings rename fairy.exe to quake3.exe

One more question before I go ahead & download the rest of the demos like Orge , Dusk, etc...

Does this OGL Wrapper work on the rest of the demos too?

Lol, there's going to be a sudden increase in download at NV's website. They'll probably take it down since they know they didn't sell that many Dx9 cards.

Now, thats a real shame.

Hopefully in future, a better OGL wrapper with more capabilities will be released.

I think someone should go tell some kind of religious group that Nvidia are corrupting the youth and then we can watch the hilarity that will ensue.

Default What gives?!

Everytime I try to download the Opengl wrapper (by clicking on the download link); I'm just directed back to the same page. No download. The link to the demo download is fine.

Internet Explorer 6.

Let me try and see if Netscape has the same issue.

Unless my Norton Firewall is causing it.

Weird..it was some strange IE 6 issue. Netscape got the file correctly.

I always thought that the Dawn demo looked nice but not as good as the already naked ATI furry Monkey in the 3d jungle.

But this is great, I just hope those MIT guys start working on a wrapper for the Vulcan demo, now that demo looks nicer than the Dawn demo.

Hey, this Nvidia pr0n looks nice with some good quality 4x fsaa applied to it.

Runs great on my 9700pro. Bet you those 5800 ultra guys never heard the music on that demo.

it runs

HAH!!!
It runs 15% faster than NV30 on the 9800pro, and it also runs faster than NV35 (we are unable to personally confirm this but a user with both cards and FRAPS could).

First the Matrox Reef demo and now the nVidia Dawn demo!

What's next? Some future DirectX9 demo from SiS?



Nice to know MIT engineering students use ATi products.

Runs even better on my 5900 Ultra (256mb of course)

http://www.hardforum.com/showthread....hreadid=612849

I'm Happy with it. Not to say that the 9800 Pro 256mb is slow (its nice too, don't own one though).

I doubt anybody cares, but here's a screenshot I took of the demo on my 9700 Pro.

Now if they can only work on a patch for the other demos...
