Arrow [24-09-09]2D/3D Driver Development for MSM720X devices (need new projectmanager)

================================================== =
Developing a graphics driver for Windows Mobile Wiki
================================================== =
Now, the goal of this thread is to unite the different driver threads on different device forums. I've seen alot of good stuff going on but the info is too spreaded.

So, here's a list of threads discussing / devving a driver or performance:


================================================== ==================================================== ==
Testing Team
Let's get these MSM devices performing the way they should! What we need is people who know about OpenGL ES and the Windows Mobile OS, and willing to contribute in development. We're currently testing the Twin's Libgles_cm.dll combined with OpenVG and Ati drivers. With that, there's also Windows Mobile 7 coming, with probably updated drivers and core. All these factors need to be taken in account, and that's what we're currently researching.
================================================== ==
OpenVG
This new 2D hardware driver development started by Khronos for mobile devices in 2008. Currently, we've managed to get a few files from the Quartz which seem to enable the openVG capabilities in the Xperia, and the Diamond seems affected by it. It seems heavily dependable on DDI so it may or may not work with your device.

UPDATED 24-09-09 - NeoS2007 Driver pack 3:
Installation: Disable Manila or Titanium before installing the cabfile. It's to make sure there are no files in use when copying the files. If you have an older version of the driverpack installed, best thing to do is a hard-reset. I know, it sucks. But believe me, it's best for your device.
Reported working devices so far: HTC Touch Diamond, Touch Pro, Touch HD, Touch Pro 2, Touch Diamond 2 and Sony Ericsson X1.

Test OpenGL (now with different resolutions!): http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=511363

great!

i was hoping they would bring these projects back. Maybe someday my kaiser can enjoy true TouchFLO 3D

thanks and good luck to the team

There is no team... Yet. This thread is also a cry for help. I can't do this myself and i'm no programmer. I did however read up on alot of info about OpenGL ES and the Windows Mobile drivers. AFAIK, the current drivers lack calls, and the hacked driver from htcclassaction.org has a bug which keeps the screen on when 3D is used. (It's a dirty hack to keep the screen alive, because in the Polaris 3D project, the screen wouldn't come back on when the device went into sleep)
If that bug can be resolved, at least the Kaiser and Polaris users can run Manila3D.

It's great to see that the development of the MSM720X devices hasn't been abandoned!

I wish you (and other developers) the best of luck!

It nearly is abandoned, that's why I started this thread. I'm hoping more people will aid me in this quest to get a decent driver for our MSM720X devices.

By the way, the new ROM by Laurentius26 for HD gives nice results in GLbenchmark. If you have an HD, give it a try.
