Re: Feb 01 - Initial testing / installation

1.Spec) AMD A6-3400M processor, 6gb of RAM, AMD A6-3400M APU graphics, 750gb conventional drive ... and then the display fills with a solid white background and a blue arrowhead cursor This is a different category of graphics bugs. Probably a quirky OpenGL implementation in the AMD integrated graph...

Re: Feb 01 - Initial testing / installation

Planet in the center left of the main menu looks like a disco ball, kaleidoscope of blue/white squares. Rotates approximately 10 degrees and then resets itself. New game. Race selection, they all have a disco ball. Humanity is at the bottom, and it is the only one that isn't a disco ball. I can see...

Re: Feb 01 - Initial testing / installation

Came in early to test the installation on my work PC. Graphical distortion at the top of the main menu, and it looks like an odd bit of graphical tearing underneath the menu as well, near the copyright notice. Programmatically resized/inserted into background?. The primary distortion at the top loo...

Re: Some Early Feedback

The middle button being the panning button feels a bit out of place. The option or default to use the left mouse button is more intuitive, methinks. Especially if you won't be dragging the left mouse button at any time. See Endless Legend's/Civ V's default. This is not quite as easy to fix as it so...

Re: Some Early Feedback

Just going to list things as I noticed them. The end turn button took me five minutes to find. I'm sure you have a big button on the way, but figured I'd mention it. The middle button being the panning button feels a bit out of place. The option or default to use the left mouse button is more intui...

Re: Sharing pre-release content

As we say in the installer's licence file, for the time being, we're asking that you guys refrain from sharing this build with your friends, or publicly posting screenshots, youtube videos, etc. Things are still more than a little rough around the edges, and we'd like more time to polish the game be...

Re: Introduce yourself :)

PS: By the way... Are you going to release DRM-free or via Steam? Excuse me if I overlooked that information somewhere... The beta, at least, is DRM free. Of course there's a chance we'll start working with one of the larger publishers at some point, but, for the time being, we're just distributing...

Re: Introduce yourself :)

Found out and applied for Beta few days ago, when are you adding more people? "Soon." But I'm afraid it's hard to give an estimate that's much more accurate than that ;) We've got a few more features we want to add before widening the beta distribution, and we're also going to need time t...

Ok -- request accepted and download link sent! If that appears to work (or if it doesn't) please drop a post in the Beta Testing forum.

State of the Build

The current build is quickly approaching release status. This forum topic has traditionally held a list of items that were still outstanding TODO items -- nearly everything is now crossed out; the most significant item that didn't make it in for the deadline is the low-powered laptop graphics optimi...

Getting Started

"Hidden Features" At this point in the game's development, most of the important UIs and features should be fairly straightforward for new players to figure out. However, there are a few important features and mechanics that, while implemented, are not yet as easily discoverable as we'd l...
