SavagePPC for ShapeShifter not working

Found the regged version of SavagePPC video driver for ShapeShifter (i'm using the latest 3.11) and tried to test it , but it only gives me white screen. No MacOS startup screen at all, just white display. Tried using both versions, with VBLANK and without, 8bit 640x480 with MMU refresh off when trying VBLANK version. Has someone got this driver working?

OK got it working. It was native chipset only, not RTG . Didn't work too good, CardTrickEVD is still the best.

I imagine coontext switches would make ppc version to slow to be useful. Cardtrickevd in direct mode is certainly the best available.

In the docs it reads MMU+DELTA is the best solution if there's plenty of memory, but how can I measure which one is better?

I used to have mocos benchmark software similar to amigas p96speed, but damned if I can remember what it was called.

Direct should be fastest option as the emu doesnt have to waste time refreshing the screen. macos will write directly into the framebuffer as if it was its own.

What Matt said. Direct mode only works with 8-bit and 15-bit modes IIRC.

Yes I tried it now, disabling MMU refresh and setting update refresh to 0 and Direct-rendering. It IS faster than MMU+Delta setting . It can be seen when playing Wolfenstein 3D and Warcraft II.
