I have a feeling that nvidia cards are going to harf on this (not neccsiarly bad, just need to verify), as it works fine on my radeon 9800 pro card, I have no way of knowing until someone tests it! http://www.digitalneo.net/Magivolve.zip All it should do is show a loading screen, then go to the title screen complete with clouds in the background and such. Its far from optimized (infact I am purposly pushing the system for debugging reasons). Just tell me if the menu shows correctly, I could care less if it runs 4fps (press ALT+F4 to quit -- I haven't coded in the input system yet). Thanks in advanced! [edit] If you get an FMOD error, shame on you for not having the dll! You can pick that up here :)

to answer your question the title screen (with the main menu) does show, although i didn't see a loading screen. the mouse barely moved (4fps is being generous), but the music worked well; although the volume was a little high.
i'm using an nvidia geforce 5500fx on XP with SP2.
cheers.

<edit :: i ran it again and the loading screen still didn't show

I can't seem to click the buttons in the main menu, and there isn't any way of navigating with the keyboard. I've Win2k/FX5600

Edit: I'm an Idiot, I didn't read the post before testing :)

Everything else looked fine.

Awsome, I guess Nvidia isn't stupid about odd-shaped textures after all, that puts a huge load off my mind!

I have a feeling that any system with less than 512 megs of ram and a gfx card of under 128mb will probibally have very low framerates. My engine isn't processor intensive nor graphically intensive, but it is conciderably ram intensive ;)

*sigh* its 3:21 am, and i just realized why SP2 isn't all gold and why i haven't been able to run any ogl apps as fast as the dx ones for the past 4 months - SP2 has forbidden my graphics drivers from updating themselves twice. i just did so, and well, yeah. its just beautiful.

your demo runs smoothly, flawless mouse movement and everything. still no loading screen, but i imagine there wasn't that much to load. for reference, my specs :
WinXP SP2
Athlon 64 3400+
2.14 GHz
1.0 Gb RAM
GeForce5500FX (now fully updated)

cheers, and good night.

Awsome :D its 4:39am here too and I must wake at 8am to go to work so I will sleep soon also. Your specs are simliar to mine, and my load time is about 0.8-1.5 seconds so you most likely finished loading before your monitor finished switching disaplay modes ;) Thanks alot man!

Thtas good news :) The reason is because its loading 2 1024x768 textures, a 1200x768 texture, and about 5 other non-standard shapped textures, and drawing them all at the same time.

To stormrunner: what is the video ram on your card?
To hh10k: I'm getting to that point ^_^


Are you using the extensions that you can load textures with weird sizes because I think that using anything higher than 1024x1024 is a bad idea :o. Maybe you should split it up into more images :)
