before 6.2 I have been able to use the high quality graphics setting without dynamic lighting. My computer is ancient but it ran the game very well. Now if I use the better graphics the game freezes in the settings screen or refuses to boot from the launcher. If this is an expected consequences from the performance improvements then I guess I will just have to live with it, but if not then I just wanted to let Zark know.
Ah, shame. It does look like the changes have made some graphics cards... less happy about things. I will see that long-term I can make them more compatible!
Do you want to volunteer as a guinea pig for being sent alternate builds that might fix things?
sure i would love to help with development in anyway i can.
Thank you! For starters, I need your log files. Can you look into %APPDATA%\AirshipsGame and send me the log.txt file from there. Also look into your Airships install folder for 6.2 and send me any "hs_err" files or similar hanging around there - they're OpenGL crash reports, basically.
