Default Re: 169.12 Still Broken!

If anyone is wondering, the DXT5 texture issue also happens under OpenGL on the Windows drivers (167 series and newer, at least on my dual-boot system) so us linux users aren't the only ones affected.

not sure if that's good news or not

Luckily i had a software decompressor coded into vegastrike so we just add cards to a blacklist that get their dxt5 files run through the software decoder... just grep the gl_renderer and gl_version and if it matches, send it off. nobody even realizes their drivers are broken

at least fortunately for us, we dont use dxt5 too heavily. or the massive amounts of uncompressed textures would be insane.
