Exclamation [2011-05-24] Running Tegra-based Games using Chainfire3D :)

Hello there!

I just sold my SGS1 and bought an SGS2. but well, something is giving me... headaches...

Well, first thing I thought: This phone is so new that applications don't support it yet! (*EDIT* The first thing was right. It's all application support issues..)
My guess is... I need to upgrade my ROM. (*EDIT* Wrong. We need to wait, or get a plugin for Chainfire3D.)

*******************************
*EDIT* I wrote a lot of Crap that i've now deleted. The true answer is below *EDIT*

The truth is that most HD games available right now weren't designed for the MALI-400 GPU chipset of Galaxy S 2, but instead for NVIDIA's Tegra devices.
These devices use a hardware-accelerated texture-compression algorithm (S3TC\DXTn, n € 1,2,3,5) that IS NOT SUPPORTED IN MALI-400

So the most simple solution is hoping that SGS2 hits BIG on the sales market, so that Devs start to make HD Games for SGS2. IMHO, it will happen soon.

Another solution is to use Chainfire 3D tool and Plugin API to make a conversion plugin.
The plugins are illegal to distribute, but a simple Googling will give some results
Right now, I was unable to produce my own plugin (too much coding involved) and the plugins we've found online crash on most games.

So current step is: Code better plugins, OR, Wait for a better Chainfire3D version (driver)

Links:
Chainfire 3D tool and API
Chainfire 3D Plugins compiling tips
NVIDIA DOC on how to implement the Texture Compression conversion


Now, to anyone who has built the nvidia plugin:
- first step: Send it to me. LOL
- second step: Test it with Dungeon Defenders or Lets Golf 2 HD. This IS important.

to Chainfire:
First of all THANK YOU SIR.
Second, could you please tell us if you can make Dungeon Defenders work? Its a good test.

*******************************

Thank you all and XDA.

Cheers,
Phk

Updates doesn't help until the games developers realease the working version on SGS II.
The games u see on youtube may be downloaded from games hub...

Somes games on SGS 1 still work on SGS II, u may try the games listed in app and theme section.

Not sure about most of these but I know that Dungeon Defenders doesn't work because it's for Tegra processors only.

@trungdaika:
- SpeedX is from SGS 1. It DOESNT work.
- Reckless Racing is not on Gameshub.....

There must be some system corruption! SpeedX looks EXACTLY like running it on HTC Magic. Believe me, no textures.

Reckless Racing from the Market works fine on my SGS2. Is this RR Lite, or the full version, and did you install it through the Market?

I'm going to weep if he isn't getting game from the market or any official sources.

Dungeon Defenders doesn't work, Reckless Racing does! I hope all developers start making some SGS 2 compatible versions of the existing games this is terrible.
