Can't Run Dawn Demo with 3.7?

    I haven't been constantly checking whether the nvidia Dawn demo was still
    able to run with each update to the catalyst driver, but all I do know for
    sure is that I was able to run it before with the opengl wrapper that allows
    it to be executed on an ATI card. But I can't run it now, and the wrapper
    is still in the Dawn\bin folder with the executable. I recently upgraded to
    catalyst 3.7 and have a Radeon 9700 Pro card. Does anyone else have this
    problem now with the 3.7 driver?

  2. Yes. I never ran it before 3.7 anyway, but I can't run it either, tried both

    Yep. It ran fine with Cat3.6, but won't run with 3.7. :(

    As posted by Bob Knowlden in a previous thread, this link'll
    sort you out.


    Quick summary is ATI have removed a certain functionality
    from their drivers, copying the relevant dll from an old
    release to the dawn bin folder will sort it. There's a link
    to the file in the forum thread.

    To be fair ATI have yet to produce a 'human' skin texture demo
    though. We have to turn to hacked NV ones for that ;)

    Can't fault the impressiveness of the chimp demo though for fur.

    I'll rephrase it.

    ATI haven't produced a human skin demo that will show off the
    most recent hardware using DX9 :)

    I've even found some of the older demos won't work on the 9700
    Pro, I'll have a go with this one, but suspect it won't look as
    good as Dawn.

    Pretty though that one is, I still think *the* most impressive demo
    produced is ATI's Pipe Dream.
