Lighty please you have to accept that ppl around might have different priorities... I fully agree with Raa that -pcx32 huge memory usage is not worth the final graphic result especialy if it means you are no longer able to run the game smooth. :p

Almost all and all is different... shinemaps and glowmaps are 2 most visible features of FS2 open so if ppl i know are using any of new graphic features it's mostly only shine or both shine and glow... To fully use both of these features you need maps for it, but if maps kill your memory completly you obviously can't use the features... well this is what are Lites good for.


Anyway we are getting way off topic here, i just wanted to answer the Singh's question...

i have the same problem - but only when the highres fenris come into game
..for example - fs2 ctd in maincampain mission 3 ... when the 2 fenris apear ...
i tried some settings ...  without glowmaps and specular it works until the psamtik comes into the system .. and then it will crash :D


first of all, a good explanation of the options would be nice

the only link that works is the 32bit texture info

Kissup. :p

I don't use pcx32. It makes my xt stutter horribly. It's a waste of the 256Mb of video memory I have. I prefer playability, in this case, to the 'smoother gradient of the colors in the interface art.' Which looks damned fine in my eyes as it is, anyway.

Another happy customer. Using your LT 27 August and Taylor's 22 Aug .exe FS2 has become what we all dreamed when SCP became finally available.
If you want to be ready for Wing Commander Saga: The Darkest Dawn, then download and play the prologue first.

Here,

http://www.wcsaga.com/downloads/files/download/releases-prologue-setup-exe.html

Then, while waiting for the Darkest dawn, Download Starshatter 4.02

http://www.starshattermods.com/infusions/pro_download_panel/download.php?did=214

You 'll understand why once you have.

Actually, a stand-alone program where you assign shine/glow/environent/normal maps etc and then it outputs a single .fso (possibly .fst?)  file would be far more accessible, but your point is made ;)

:D  I tried out the ani glow maps...  That was some slow down!  Cool looking though.  Make a ani beam ok? :D

Taylor's latest build.

I suppose you tried the recommended version? :)

ANI beams are not possible - check mantis for my bug report if it didn't get deleted.

What is this fso format? I must have missed something, or is it just an idea at this point?

The best image format would be some kind of combination of full 32-bit (not 24) capability, PCX compression and support for multiple frames. :D

hmm, perhaps variable damage frames... combined with the particles, that could be sweet!

Find someone who wants to update them.



Demonized. Bad screenies but what the hey - fully animated, upgraded in some parts, and moved along the scheme with the new shivan stuff :D

It is still my firm belief that the Serapis, more than any other fighter in the entire game, is in desperate need of a higher poly rebuild. I mean, look at that underside pic...:ick:
