Why does the options menu permit humans right abuses?
Gentlemen, this is an atrocity:



Now I have it on good authority that at least one of our members is forced to play like this. And I have to ask, why does FreeSpace Open allow torture? Why are we enabling the degradation and punishment of our fellow human beings?

Texture issue, not engine. We need to remove mipmaps from the skybox textures, and the user needs to disable -mipmap.

Re: Why does the options menu permit humans right abuses?
I think he means HT's skybox mangled by FSO background detail level settings.
Notice that, despite detail level reduction, FPS still sucks.
I guess it's a good ilustration why we should optimize Karuna as fast as possible (though new Antipodes would most likely help too).

What I want to know is who did this, and what GPU is this running on?

I'm not actually requesting any changes, I just wanted to post this so people can boggle at what some folks put up with.  :(

It's MattheGeek's.

And he doesn't turn up the settings because...?

I don't think the options menu is to blame.

Rather, it's the ****ty hardware. (and the Karuna)

Wow, even my powerful NVidia GeForce II, 1.5GHz P4 computer makes FSO look better than that...although mine doesn't use those settings, mission, background, etc. :)

Reminds me of the loading screen of the Lost Viking minigame in SC2.

Space retro! All we need is an outline shader like the one in Borderlands!

I don't know... maybe because when I do, I drop back below 5 fps ?
And yeah this is using antipode 6. Which made be go above 5 fps for the first time on this mission in full screen.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

****ing seriously.

It's preferable that the game does not boot up at all, than to actually make it through the loading screen and see that.

Uhh, Hades, I use an Intel GMA X3100 and I don't get this at all (because I conveniently forgot to turn down in-game settings because I know it made BP:AoA a living hell for me).

I don't know... maybe because when I do, I drop back below 5 fps ?

Learn to play at below 5 FPS until you get a better framerate then. That's what I've been doing for the past two years.
