Hello

So i try start HL2 on my Note 3 4.4.2 with using newest version of GL tools. With setting writed below i was able to get in the main menu and load first level, but main problem is that i cant see any texture - everything is black. But i was really able to walking on level and do actions. I hear this thru sounds in game and yeah i have connected moga controller.

Setting for gl tools:
Use fake gpu info
Template: tegra 4
Simple mapbuffer emulation
Software VBO emulation
Use packed stencil buffer

I try other settings but no luck to repair black textures...

That's because it uses the DXT format. Only Tegra devices can handle DXT textures.
It probably works on Tegra 3, but I have no suitable Tegra 3 device to test it with, my Ouya runs on 4.1.2.

The easiest way to spoof the nvidia shield or something else is via:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2146216



I have these games favorite'ed:
Portal
Half-life 2
etc


reboot the mojo

make sure location access is on.

I installed it as follows:
Install the app from the link.
Force stop google store

Run the app,
I picked:
Selected Tablet, Nvidia Shield
Pick your country and ISP
and activated.
Logged into google for device registration.

Start google store and your favs should be purchasable.
It's a hit and miss process but it does work, all the games above were able to be installed expect GTA-4.

If it still fails force stop google store, rerun the market helper app and check.
if it still fails clear the data on both service and store and force stop google store, rerun makert helper.
On SW reboot and service/store data clear it remembered the settings for me.

Now you can pay for HL2 and portal but cant install them because they check to make sure it's a nvidia shield.
I'll have a look to see if there's a way around it.
