Aleph One Call for Voodoo Help
6:00 AM | Sean Smith | Comment on this story

Yesterday, the web site of the Marathon Open Source project was updated with the welcome news that they are turning their attention to the longstanding issue of support for 3dfx Voodoo cards in Aleph One:

Loren Petrich has sent out a call for programmers knowledgeable in the area of 3dfx Voodoo graphics programming. Aleph One has long had issues with 3dfx's old graphics cards, and it would be great to have someone come along and get Aleph One to work as well with these cards as with ATI and Nvidia's offerings.
Aleph One boasts an impressive variety of improvements over Bungie's venerable Marathon 2 engine (upon which it is based), including high-resolution, 32-bit textures; support for 3D models; and OpenGL acceleration. While this reporter can attest that GL-accelerated Aleph One running on an ATI Radeon is a breathtaking sight, on a 3dfx Voodoo3 it suffers from some serious problems.

If you have the specialized knowledge the Marathon Open Source team needs and would like to lend a hand to this impressive and worthwhile project, please e-mail Loren Petrich at
