yeah it uses the shine map, I figured it would be just about perfict, and haveing a thrid map would be a huge wast of memory and slow, this way it already has the shine map set properly and it just canges a few minor things and makes a third pass (no way to realy do this well at the same time as the shine map)

Hmmmmmmmmmmm... It's probably the way it's being used here, look at 'RT's Texture Code' thread in the Internal Forum, and imagine that with Environment mapping, I think that's what's causing the slowdown ;)

I was going to say that the glitch is probably retribution for choosing to fly a Loki in the first place :p  I don't have time to test this right now, but the premise is more than a little exciting.  Can't wait to see the environment map off of my cockpit glass :)

When I start up this build, nothing shows up. There's just a fullscreen black screen, and the menus and sounds are underneath but invisible. This includes not displaying the splash screen.

Latest one I have that works is 1/20/04.

Are there any known fixes for this bug, like registry changes or something? Or do I need to figure out how to work Mantis and put it in there?

Ambient Light kills this feature - i would really like to see this with ambient turned almost to zero. Implemented the command line yet? :p

Also, I found a really nice & hidden bug for you. It's not actually a bug, but a feature.

Well, you have updated the way ANIs are loaded into textures - they get preferred over other file formats. That's good - but it causes a slight problem with the main FS2 data. The tech room anim and the texture of most bombs (and some other missiles) have the same name. Try firing a cyclops in-game. It will use the tech room ani as a texture instead of the bomb texture. Same with Helios, the TAG missiles and some other stuff as well. :D

Kickass!

mm it doesn't work here, but due to my old system, you probably don't have to worry about.
I see something like the old shard of death in the techroom, but much much more messy, the screen is flashing white and is messy,  everything is slow, even the movements of the mouse cursors, and I can't continue to the mission simulator, no matter how many time a press the mouse button, and after a while it crash and I have to reboot.

 
Another erm... feature.


Try dying in a mission.  It's quite a _stretch_ to believe that is supposed to happen ;)

don't mention this in any bug reporting (mantis) yet as it's just a little demo thingy.

the animation thing is going to require some major hackage to get working right, this is why I had it set to load anis if it couldn't find a texture, not the other way around.

as I said, the tech room isn't likely oing to work (at least not before you go into a mission fist)

and Solatar, try to figure out with comand line option killed it

Already working on it.:)

EDIT: -d3d_notmanaged

Says it's not finished in the launcher anyway, and I was just checking out random command lines. I did manage to get into the game. Ingame, all textures are white, there is no HUD, no backgrounds, no text.
