M&B

OK so Carrier2 doesn't like ATi gfx cards. Or the other way round. Either way I'm in the process of rebuilding my spare PC with a rather ageing but still robust Radeon 9800 Pro :)

In other news, I picked up a little 'medieval' RPG-style game called 'Mount & Blade' on steam some weeks ago. This project started out as a man & wife team editing a 3D demo. Several years later (with a few more members added) this small team, unconstrained by publishers and commercial needs, has created something that IMO surpasses some commercial games in parts (the brilliant combat system being the main one).
At first I was disappointed that there was no continuous world 'map', but after a while this really didn't matter to me. It actually reminds me of Lords of Midnight mixed with Elite on horseback - simple on the surface but quite deep too.
I'm from the school that regards complex games like Total War etc as superior, and yet I've played this little gem for much longer than those already (hey, I need *some* time off C2 hackage). Helping that, it feels like you can dip in & out of the game for a short play and still make meaningful progress. I just hope I can emulate this kind of approachable gameplay in Carrier...
Anyway I recommend you give the demo a try if you value gameplay and want to support a small indie dev team.

Completely random guess; you're using D3D9 and not setting the MinIndex and NumVertices parameters to DrawIndexedPrimitive properly - NVidia hardware ignores them, but ATI hardware uses them.
OpenGL all the way I'm afraid :)
Still on track then? That's good to know.. :)

No camping experiences to relate yet this year? It's still frozen here. Up above zero tonight though, so that makes a change. March/April are the warm-up months here. It rained today - had nothing but snow since mid November, so it makes a change.

We'll probably camp again this year - not going to the place with all the squirrels and mozzies though.. That was right on the Manitoba desert too, so the campground was all sand.. Had to spread the tent out and sweep it when we got home as it was covered.

(Sorry this post isn't more Carrier 2 related, but what the hey.. ;) ).
Sounds like a nice place for camping there Grun ;)

No expeditions planned yet - I'd like to but I'm in hospital for a serious op soon, and gonna be unable to move for weeks afterwards :(
