AMD is experimenting a lot in those Beta drivers, frequently breaking stuff. Even Beta V1 had a problem - terrible performance loss, almost half of fps (tested on 7970 and 6850). Stay away from it if you can.

I'm trying to get Outerra running on a 2012 Macbook Pro, running Windows 7 (64 bit) via BootCamp:

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-3520M CPU @ 2.90GHz
Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB
Graphics Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000
Gaming graphics 1696 MB

I see various accounts on this thread of what happens with the Intel HD 4000, but it won't start at all with me. It just gives the error message "Graphics card drivers crashed during the initialization of OpenGL."

I've attached my eng.log file here. Is there anything I can do, or is it just not going to happen on this system?

Intel Ivy Bridge and Haswell partially work with Outerra already, but only with the very latest drivers, and still with lots of issues. Also there were some other bugs in earlier versions, please download the following patch first:
Anteworld-0.7.16.3961-4152

Hi there!

This looks so promising!

I'm trying to get this to work on my work machine (I'll test it at home tonight) but so far I can't get it start!

Once I get past the login screens (running in demo mode for now) I see the program trying to check for "updated planetary data"- it freezes and then windows says it's stopped working! (Screengrab attached)

I've just updated to the latest Nvidia drivers.  I have two video cards (A Quadro 2000 and a Quadro 4000).
I checked my crash log but I don't see anything... is my system just not compatible?
(crash log attached)

Thanks in advance!  This looks absolutely amazing and if can get it working I look forward to supporting future efforts!

The log says the program can't connect to www.outerraworld.com, can you check if it's accessible from there? The downloader doesn't support proxy servers and requires a direct connection.

Argh!  That's what I was afraid of!  I'll talk to IT and see if there's a way around it!  I know we've got some crazy proxy server stuff.
... don't suppose there's a workaround?

Thanks for the super fast reply!

You could try running it with -demo command line switch, in that case it should not check the data - just to see if it gets further. I think someone reported an issue with Quadro cards some time ago, but that was about some graphics artifacts - a bug in Nvidia drivers that was fixed on consumer card drivers but not on the profi line, at that time.

Thanks- but no luck!

It jumps ahead past the login screen, it says "updating" then freezes and crashes!

Hm, I must check if it still omits the check in the -demo mode. Something may have changed since the 0.8.0 version, there are additional data that weren't included in the full install and must be fetched on the first run. Though the demo mode should not need them ...

Thanks!  I'll hopefully have time to try this out from my home computer tonight!

As the project develops is there any chance of it being okay with proxy servers?
(sorry if that's a silly question- i'm a 3D/VFX guy!  I have no idea how most of that works!)

Yes, we would like to fallback to downloading via the embedded browser which already supports proxy servers. It will add a bit more overhead but should cover even the exotic proxy types.

That would be fantastic!

I played with the demo last night after the kids were in bed... amazing!
I'm hoping IT will be able to help me out today and find a temporary work around.  It shouldn't be hard to talk them into spending a mere $15!
