All in all, it looks pretty good. Seems to run smoother (and quicker at startup a bit) than the SC5 I was running before. I even have reflections turned back on! :P Though I did try toggling UVP back on and all the characters/critters disappeared except for their names/healtbars. (Though I think this was a previously mentioned issue, iirc).

 

And I noticed this (because I make alot of use of it):

 

When using chat in Windowed mode, if you click the title bar of the chat window (like to move it, for example) or try to resize it, you will quit walking or harvesting. Didn't think until just now to see if it affected mixing, but when I restart it I will. (I tried posting this a few mins ago, but got the Blue Screen of Death while EL was running in the background - though I'm thinking that might be a video issue on my end, not sure. Only happens when running EL (or when I've recently run EL and then view ANY video format - MOV, WMV, MPG, etc..)

 

The other thing I've found pretty quick is that if you have the minimap up (which looks BADASS, I might mention! Love the rotation!) and check "Toggle Frame Buffer Support" in options, the minimap turns to static like a TV off the air (or either turns black entirely). Toggling the frame buffer support back on returns it to normal though.

 

Here's a screenie of the TV static-looking minimap with frame buffer support toggled on:

Other than those (so far), everything seems normal (or better).

When I open the minimap (which looks great) my FPS is jumping all the time from 1 to 40 (capped) when there are like >6-7 actors in screen (like at storage). When I close the minimap the FPS is fairly constant.

 

Specs:

NVidia Gefore Go 7600 (256MB)

Intel Duo Core T5600 (2x 1.83Ghz)

Can we please have a linux zip with only the data?

Not yet, because the data is incomplete (needs some more stuff). Will be available in a few days.

Strange, for me there is no difference (well, maybe half a fps).

Try to uncap the fps, see if it makes a difference.

Playing it under Wine in linux, no problems at all - in fact for some reason I get better FPS under Wine than I do with the linux native CVS - go figure :P

I like the settings moved to the pre game screen, very nice.

 

Mini map, very cool.

 

Increased harv effects very wild.

 

Print in stors excellent.

 

The right click on your name for the drop down menu is easy access for settings.

 

Rick click on the stats window, another easy access menu. :rolleyes:

 

Rick click on spells to change order, :P

 

No issues to report atm. Great job.

 

Update - when it's raining, harv effect and xp effects work fine, once it stops raining the harv effect flickers, becomes pixilated or is non existant. Might be a video card driver issue i'm sure. Last client did the same in fact. :(

 

Update 2 - alt-d closes all open windows, including mini map, the old one had a setting to stay open regardless. If there's a setting for this still, i'm unable to find it.

 

Update 3 - I've spent the last 11 hours running this client. Not 1 real problem, and I must say, the sun sets are so nice!

So far works fine.

I'd love to see an option allowing for disabling rotating the minimap, though.

Everything looks fine and it works on my ancient machine (gf2 mx powered) with only slightly decreased frame rate. No hangs, no bugs so far. Now I'm looking for the EL sun to show up :P

EDIT: with poor man off the decrease is more significant, but still manageable.

I'd love to see an option allowing for disabling rotating the minimap, though.

I second that.

My computer hates me, and I think I installed the file corectly.

I can run EL and log in, but about 2 seconds after it crashes.

Think there is something wrong with my drivers atm, its supporting other games relatively well, but not so good with EL :/ so will try installing a new one if i can find.

 

Poor man on, everything else off.

 

Sorry if its me in advance thats installed the file wrong

 

Video card: Intel 945GM

Vendor ID: Intel

OpenGL Version: 1.4.0 - Build 7.14.10.1437
