This thing now runs on a hamster wheel

    After completely overhauling the graphics engine, removing FBOs, and adding a bunch of options to the configuration, I am proud to announce that this Saturday's coming patch should resolve most of the hardware issues people are experiencing.
    Oh, you don't believe me? Click the images to see full size.
    Yes, they were taken by my crappy camera phone. That's my laptop there in front of you.

    Here's a zoomed out shot, along with my assistant.​

    Closer in.​
    There are some graphical anomalies that need resolving. Hopefully I get these fixed at some point.​
    This laptop is using an Intel Media Accelerator 3150 Integrated, with 256MB of RAM and openGL 1.4.​
    To put it succinctly, this thing is a piece of crap. The game runs fairly fast in 2D and chugs in 3D, but it RUNS.
    See you Saturday.​

    Do I spy a missing texture file in the zoomed in photo? ?_? Or is that purple and black stylizing on purpose?

    There are some existing texturing issues in some of the maps that we are working on fixing.

    i noticed that most laptops have open gl 2.1.

    so...why not focusing on that?

    Also i noticed that when you use a skill...it freezes up them return showing damage....and that...i don't know why.

    Just downloaded Stencyl, and learning how to use it. In this term, I hope to learn enough to possibly be of assistance to the game :D.
    Especially since the computer seems to be holding up to some of the intense crap I will have to go through XD.

    Sounds good, for some odd reason my game would be lagging in frames.
