Video Extensions test

Recommended Posts

Our client has the ability to send back to the server a list of all the OpenGL extensions a video card supports.

This is very helpful for us because we can know how to make the client better (for example, there is no point implementing a feature than only 1% of the player's computers support).

 

This file was supposed to be added with the installer, but we forgot about it.

So please download it from: http://www.eternal-lands.com/extentions.xml (yes, spelling) and put it in your main Eternal Lands folder (where el.exe is).

This file is for all the operating systems.

 

Please note that all this does is report back to the server, one time only, your video card capabilities. Nothing else (no private information) is transfered to the server.

 

Thanks, and if you have any questions, ask here.

 

P.S. You might have to right click on the link then chose: "Save link as", or whatever it is called in your browser.

"This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below."

I clicked the link, selected "file" at the top of my swiftweasel browser and selected "save page as" then saved it to my /usr/local/games/el folder. (I had one in there already, dug it up from the cvs version?)

Umm FYI the GL_ATI_texture_compression_3dc extension is detected on my machine only when I'm playing EL on Linux (Radeon X2300 here).

No problems with downloading and placing the xml file in the EL directory :omg: (some browsers might have something like "save link as")

suncie you got something like flashget installed? or a torrent program that can catch ie downloads?

 

 

Yes, Download Accelarator Plus. I had it disabled the first time.

Download it the second time with DAP and got the sam error.

 

Save target is not highlighted, so I don't have the option available in IE
