New Version of Gnoblins is out !
The second pre-alpha version of gnoblins with some great improvements is out.
Most important are the addition of sound fx and music. The awesome music is created by Christian Andersson (Craze Music).
As always you can download the new version here.
The new configuration supports mixed resolution rendering, that is, the 3d world can be rendered in a lower resolution than the gui to keep a moderate framerate at higher monitor resolutions even for not high-end videocards. The following screenshots display a scene with different quality setting at a screen resolution of 1680x1050 (the fps is displayed at the left, upper corner). All screenshots have been taken on a nvidia 8800 GTS videocard.
