For the intensive bullet holes, stuck yourself in a wall, watch it, and shot five times with your shotgun. The framerate dropped to 180 to ~70/80 for me.

(done in one of the RPG maps, y'know, the cheapest)

#14: one of my best days...

by D-TurboKiller (LT) on 06/18/2008 11:52

Well, it's about time! Now I can finally work and play with my crappy laptop, thanks to PVS culling :) (Damn you, Intel graphics card!)
I see this is gonna be one hell of a day for me... I finally got the time to try Portal today. I'll save the best for last (Sauerbraten, that is). Good thing school's over, now I have loads of time to create new content, starting with the very final version of my best map, "LT Space Deathmatch eXpanded".

Now we just need the most asked feature EVER, Co-op mode (SP for MP). And also something I've noticed since CVS: try to improve (make it faster) the creation of PVS Culling for maps. The time you need to do it can be... colossal :P
Also, kudos for the great and cheap new graphical revamp! That glow makes a nice change, especially on Intense :D

#16: Good job!

by Dracion on 06/18/2008 14:02

Well worth the extra 3 days wait for me. Really like the new graphics especially. One problem though, the bullet marks made in walls seem to remain after you remove the cube, which creates the effect of a random floating object.

Example: http://i29.tinypic.com/2zp5ovn.png

Apart from that, a big well done :D

So I just downloaded this new version of Sauer, and when I run it, I get insanely low FPS. Now I mean INSANELY slow, like, under 1 FPS, not enough to even navigate the menu. I'm not too sure what is causing this. Graphically, the game looks fine, and I am not using any software OpenGL (Quake 3 CPMA runs perfectly). I am running under XP SP2, and my specs are as follows:
900mhz Celeron, 192mb ram, ATI Radeon 9200PRO. Ok, so it isn't too flash, but I was able to run Sauer around a few months ago and get around 70 FPS (from memory). Can anyone shed any light on this situation? Sauer is looking great :)

Ok well, I figured it out, if I set "ati_texgen_bug 0" in my config, it runs with no problems, although it seems to remove that from my config on exit. Thanks anyway guys, and well done to everyone who contributed to this release! :)

Don't write in your config.cfg (I assume you meant that)

Create an autoexec.cfg, there you can put all scripts and commands you want to be executed on startup.

what command would you use in the game to change the hit crosshair?

#23: congratulations!!!!

by mau on 06/18/2008 16:40

y\'all did a fantastic job on the engine. i don\'t get the \"freezes\" i used to get and the performance is even better than it already was. just wanted to congratulate you guys and say thanks a million.

congratulations to the map-making folks out there too. the new maps are awesome!

Bug report: Happend in a CTF game on the TC server several times.
All players could pick up items but the ammo etc wasn't added to their inventory and flags could not be picked up. After a level restart it was usually gone.

#26: Flag Carrier

by tman_elite on 06/18/2008 18:26

Maybe for the next release the flag carrier should have a speed decrease (maybe 10-20%). It's not that big of a change but I think it would work well.

CTF is great. Nice work.

It's recommended that you remove config.cfg when installing a new version of Sauer.

In fact, it's also recommended that you uninstall the old and install the new version completely... But who's really going to do that (especially with the -q option)?

#28: Like New Version a LOT!!!

by Titanic12ship on 06/18/2008 19:03

I like everything a lot, high quality new maps, CTF is great, and I really like the new features. Everything is spectacular.

I just had 1 question: Was the writeobj command taken away? I tried it and looked for the object file and I can't find it. Maybe I'm just not looking in the right place.

Anyway, fantastic release!!

#29: download is slow and keeps stopping

by CC_machine#1847629837641 on 06/18/2008 20:56

my father and I are trying to download, getting only 40 to 60kb/s each though (we are on 2megabit download, wired connection, so 256kb/s maximum) and in Firefox at least, the downloads keep stopping for a few seconds every so often, or claim to be finished (when they arent, and so the file is corrupt.) he is on Windows, i\'m on Linux. same behaviour if i use wget on a terminal.

any other people experiencing download issues from sourceforge? mh.

#30: Another great release

by tentus_ on 06/18/2008 21:03

Oddly enough, my favorite addition is the cloudlayer stuff. I love how the clouds look in Shipwreck (particularly at gamespeed 400).

I wonder if we could get Yahtzee to give it a whirl? From the sound of his reviews, Sauer would be right up his alley, especially with the new decals and gamemodes.

Try a different mirror.

#32: low fps with PVS?

by D-TurboKiller (LT) on 06/18/2008 23:14

I wonder why, but I'm getting pretty low fps (less than 10) on more open maps, like shipwreck, which has PVS. Of course, this happens when I see a bit far away. I even tried using the /pvs command to check if it was on. The strange thing is that it's the same crappy FPS with or without PVS. I know I have an Intel card, but still, with an Intel dual core processor with about 1.5 GHz for each core and 1 GB of Memory, I was expecting it to run a lot faster than that. This is kinda strange since I can play UT2004 and any Source game nicely.

(6 times 1? Damn, this is a tough one xD)
