Sky Test client 2

Recommended Posts

Please report problems and stuff.

 

 

Sorry I didn't post because I thought you only wanted to know if there were problems. I have it installed an it works great. I didn't even have to make any changes, just installed it and it worked . :wub:

 

My only complaint is that I spend too much time just looking at the sky now. It is really beautiful especially the night sky. Is there lightning too? I haven't seen it yet but I hope there is, I love lightning.

only thing that's happened is some flickering water in C1 portals but I can generally make it go away but shifting the angle.

What shader quality are you using?

Currently set at zero. tried to change to 1 and i all but froze, restarted client, set at zero again.

 

I'm in portals now with no flickering, perhaps it was the time of day? all settings appear to be as they were 9hrs ago when it happened. Will check again tonight when I have time to play around with it.

So far sky&clouds work excellent. It might be a problem with my client or something but it seems i cannot see the Sun. I see stars, moon, clouds. I use freshly built CVS version from few hours ago.

Not sure if what I'm experiencing is the known 'akward water' thing mentioned by Roja, but during day time, with water shader quality set to 2, I see water just black.

 

During night it looks ok, and I see water and reflections and all (except the new effects) during day as well when I set the water shader quality to 0.

EDIT:

For the record, this was on my Laptop. I tried running ElSky... but had the same results as desktop...ran for a bit, then crashed. ElSky-NoClusters seems to be working fine.

What the fruck is a cruster?!?!?!

Okay, had a chance to play in the portals room.

 

with water shader set at zero and reflections on I got the flickering, if I turn off the reflections it turns back to the normal(i think) coloring and no flickering. haven't tried the patch yet but will tomorrow.

Seems like enabling the Compiled Vertex Array and the Vertex Buffer Objects under advanced video is making it crash for me. I disabled them, and it's working fine now. It's worth a try if you are having issues.

Installed and running this client (from original post in this thread) on the first and third PC in my siggy.

 

No problems so far...mind you the poor, poor-man is running extended viewing distance at 75 and has an FPS of about 9, lol, but it is running. Probably time to update driver too - I've waited long enough ;P

 

On the first PC, I'm running the extended view at 150 with no effect on my FPS ^^. Looks really nice, great actually...nice job :)

 

Will get around to loading it on the Laptop this weekend when i get the chance.
