Is Freespace suppose to look this good? =P (Image Heavy)
Oh man, if every thing people is saying is true, then my cpu, with:

1.1 GHz AMD Duron processor
192 MB of RAM
32 bit Nvidia TNT2 Pro card
80 GByte hard disk

Is 'old hat, not worth anything, must be replaced ASAP if Freespace is to look great'

That will be in several years time then........

PS: those are some VERY good looking screenies guys! almost LIVE TV quality!

  • Intel Pentium III (450 MHz, overclocked to 550)
  • 384 MB main memory (SDRAM, 100 MHz)
  • NVIDIA GeForce4 MX 440 (roughly equivalent to a GeForce2 Ultra)

You at least have a faster CPU. :)

I have an AMD K-6 450 I hate it.

So do I, but it's in a defunct machine. AMD K6 is awful. It's like a Pentium II with the testicles sliced off. When I had one and then used a Pentium II at roughly the same clock rate, I was amazed at how much of a difference it made. I assume it has something to do with cache.

Just get a new Videocard....... Raedons and GF2/3/4/FX - MXX series (whatever the mhx or sum name...), are cheap nowadays OEM.

The P2 lasted me four years after i bought her... she was a fine old CPU.... surpassed everything all the way up to the 600MHZ range... w/ a old school diamond stealth 4 meg card lol.... those were the good old days...

Some of the Pentium 2s had cooling problems, didn't they?  But with an overspec fan they were OK.

I went straight from an old 200MHz Pentium to an Athlon XP 1700+, so I never used a P2 or 3, or a K6.

One of my friends has a 666MHz Celeron, but after he got a DVD drive installed by PC World, the fan got jammed by a stray IDE connector.  The processor was slowly melting down for 6 months, until I put an old Athlon XP 1700+ fan on it.

Finally managed to get a card that runs all the new stuff, and I'm amazed. MT never looked so good!

you are useing the beam texture tileing corect (you're electro beams were the promary reason I did that)

Yep, and it looks GREAT. I'm adjusting the maps to tile better today. The translation code is awesome too, and the fact that you can set the factor allows some pretty cool effects. Awesome job on that.

I added a third tileing type a while ago you might want to look into, it would tile x number of times along the beam (like absolute tileing) but would keep things corectly aligned relitive to the length of the beam (it keeps it from bunching up when the beam hits something), if, for example, you had a texture that goes from light to dark it would give the impression that the beam is stronger close to the base (wich you can actualy set it to do) and when you hit something it would not sudenly have the end of the beam hitting the ship turn black/transparent, it's sort of a hybird of the other two tileing types

Isn't that the type 2 tiling? That's the one I'll be using, most certainly. I'm still testing all the possibilities. While you're at it, can you give me more detailed instructions on how to use the damage decals, if they're still available? I tried to follow the stuff from the readme but it didn't work.
