Kudos ZanMgt gents - you folks work fast
Just tested on bro's desktop now (for the record, it's always worked fine on my much newer Win7 machine).
SUCCESS! It works! Congrats and thanks a lot guys! Bro will be happy
It's really laggy with large items (anything Enormity Level 7 and up it starts to slow down quite a bit), but...
A. That's because this is quite an old machine (1.8ghz single-core, 1.5gbs RAM, 256mb ATI All-In-Wonder video card). He intends on getting a new computer when he gets back from China.
B. I imagine that because the game is in Alpha and is still in development, that you folks haven't done a great deal of in-depth optimizing yet
This at least means he should be able to tinker about on his free time and make fighter-sized / shuttle-sized craft on his netbook while he is over there!
Bro's awake - remoted into his netbook and tried BR - it gets much further, but gives a "Couldn't Initialize Render Targets" error, so I think it's just that we have older netbooks (pretty sure they have the Intel graphics chipset that came out before the GMA 3000 [or whatever it's called] chipset).Alaric edit: combined double post
