Actually FOV is stored and internally handled as vertical (check eng.cfg), only when displaying it it's recomputed to horizontal, as people are more used to that. The range also changes when you change the aspect ratio. If you select a mode that's 32:9, the displayed angle should double.

Yes, the plan is to support separate views too, so the distortion can be minimized.

Patch 2990 fixes an issue with Win XP crashing upon start with version 2989 (dwmapi.dll not found). Those who already bricked their install, here's a direct patch download:
Anteworld-0.7.11.2968.patch-2990.exe (can be applied to any version since 2968)

I'm having a problem where I try and launch Outerra, nothing happens. As in, nothing at all. This was before the newest patch was applied (I believe). I tried a re-install of Outerra and when I try and launch it, nothing happens. The "thinking" wheel on the mouse appears for a second, then nothing, no window. What could be wrong?

Please check if there's a crash.log file created in your home/outerra dir. What is your OS version?

I'm not at my computer now but the crash log said something to the extent of "Invalid Syntax", and that was it. Windows 7 Pro 64-bit.

Did you modify cfg files by hand? There's probably a syntax error in one of them (but it may have been caused also by the program itself, erroneously).

I did not modify anything, but my computer BSOD'd on closing the program, including the time before the current problem. Since then I've reinstalled the whole program, so it should not have left remains?

Must have been the crash that corrupted something. I uninstalled with Revo so I just assumed it got the settings folder. I manually deleted it and it worked. Thank you.

Though it still crashes my OS about one out of every three times I exit Outerra.

New patch - 0.7.11.2992
  • fixed startup issue with Win XP for real  ::)
  • relaxed the coefficient that reserves GPU memory with adjusted terrain quality - previous one was too pessimistic and used much more than it actually needed

Windows XP users that updated to 2989/2900 version please download and run this patch manually: Anteworld-0.7.11.2968.patch-2992.exe

Ah much better at loading terrain at 1080 now.
All those bumpy mountains and I still can't drive on them.  ::)  :P Just kidding.  I'm patient.

My personal wishlist in order:
1. Improved road making
2. Updated ground/vehicle collision
3. 3D model importer, More vehicles
4. I don't care.  :P  (Online Multiplayer?)
