Gaming Discussions and Q&A [Updated-CF3D Instructions][13Feb2012]
NO TALKS ABOUT WAREZ/CRACKED STUFF (UNLESS YOU WISH TO LEAVE XDA)
In the words of Mod Wardfan220
Just so everyone is aware. Posting links to or requests for warez will result in an immediate ban, this IS your 1 warning. The OP has already plainly stated that in his first post.
Lets keep the thread a positive and helpful one.
Well, the title says it all.
Will update this post, if any extreme important information.
Instructions on What-is and How-To use Chainfire3D
What is Chainfire3D [CF3D]?
From CF's OP
Chainfire3D is an intermediary OpenGL driver. What does that mean? It means that Chainfire3D sits between your apps and the graphics drivers, and can intercept and/or change commands between the two. It has some built-in functions, and can be further extended with plugins to provide extra functionality.
Okay, so you don't speak Android Dev language?
Here you go, in simple words, its an app which can be used to play games not for your gpu, on your phone. Say there is a game only for nVidia Tegra devices, and its awesome and you can't resist. This is the app for you.
Also it offers some more functionalities which can be used to make some games work or improve their performance/graphics.
OP of CF3D
My [extremely outdated] thread on "List of Games working (or not) with Chainfire3d"
Another thread which shows general compatibility and stuff
Okay, now you are all set-up with the app, so how the heck do you use it?
Well, the main task first,
i. nVidia Tegra Games
Select plugin "libGLEMU_NVIDIA".
Well, that was it.
ii. SGS [or other PowerVR devices]
Select plugin "libGLEMU_POWERVR"
iii. For Qualcomm
Select plugin "libGLEMU_QUALCOMM"
Further detailed procedures coming soon.
