Tech demo - getting closer
« Reply #15 on: August 23, 2011, 12:09:17 pm »

For notebooks, is a GTX 560M good enough?  I'm looking at getting a notebook with that, but I don't know how it compares to the desktop video cards.

Here's a nice comparison site where you can check the expected performance: www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GTX-560M.48313.0.html.

Hmm, hard to say which benchmark to use that would be comparable to Outerra. In Crysis 2, high setting, a desktop GTX 460 is 47% faster than a 560M.

The best benchmark? Outerra itself. ;)

Serious now, we'll see how good performance (on ATI's) is when it's released. It seems like you can get an idea with the minimum requirements for NVidia. ATI users will probably have to wait.

Thanks, cameni.  I was looking for something like that.  I've got some thinking to do.

Actually Cameni some sort of pre-scripted fly-through on a predetermined path with a log file of frame-rates and texture load times as an official benchmark would help out a great deal in determining OpenGL and system performance. Perhaps even downloading all the information before the start to not have internet speed affect the test.

I agree with what cshawn said, the sound will really sell it. It's amazing really what sound does for a scene/ enviroment.

If you release the demo (I should say when), consider setting up a (semi) public bugtracker somewhere (maybe only trusted users can add entries or something). I find forums to be rather cumbersome for issue tracking personally.

Looking forward to testing/reporting many bugs ;-)

Just an idea ;-)

Brano, Stephen use "Mantis" for World Machine- don't know if that would suit your needs.

Not that soon :)
I've just incorporated the crash reporting from the list, and been wondering how to integrate it with bug reporting in general.

Yea, there's a painful lot of things to do so that the whole process runs smooth, and of course in the end it won't go smooth :D

Not in the demo, it will come into the alpha game. Some time ago, Mazz sent me some very useful drawings and other data of tracks, and we talked a bit about what needs to be supported. I'm now trying to make use of it in designing the rail system in a way that would be extensible and compatible with the way we are doing stuff in the engine, but it's still in relatively early phase.
