EXT_texture_compression_s3tc on Wildcat VP

I recently got a Wildcat VP 760 for testing compatibility on. Unfortunately, it does not seem to expose EXT_texture_compression_s3tc, nor support it if I blindly turn on the enumerants.

I sent a question to their customer support, who replied back saying they support the format, and please download the latest drivers. Well, I thought I had, but I tried again. Same result - no extension, no support.

This time, I sent a little sample program to the customer support people that I’d expect to work, and which doesn’t, but that was a while ago and I haven’t heard back from them.

Seeing as the Wildcat support DX8.1, they should support DXT1/3/5, and seeing as they do that, OpenGL extension support should be simple. If anyone wants to try the app, it’s available here: (with source)

It is probably supported by the hardware but not by the driver.

Yes, I believe so to.

Their customer support finally got back; they changed their mind and say they don’t support this format under OpenGL.
