Wow, I didn't even get to test anything 204*. By the time I got to patch it, we had gone from 2132 to 2151. Anyway, here's what I notice:

1) When I first started games, there was always this visual "hiccup" the first time a move connected. The result of the hit never being loaded into memory. This seems to be improved, but not entirely fixed.

2) While it all looks nicer, and frame rates are overall more consistent, they've also been getting progressively worse. I've had to drop from 1280*1024 to 1024*768 to 800*600 to get a decent FPS. (my GFFX has this habit of keeping the FPS at these 3 res' within +-10 FPS) Glow still doesn't work.

3) Spelling! I swear, work a simple spellchecker into the Notepad you use! Normally it's simple stuff you could easily overlook, but in Raven's Redemption, I fould "hydrolic" amongst stuff I wouldn't normally notice!

Yeah, that's about it. The visual hiccups are my biggest complaint. And where's the random pilot / har for hosting games- even more, where's our arcade mode? *grin*

Not to bump my own thread, but for some reason, the ForceWare drivers are crap. I just re-installed my GFMX200 with the Omega drivers, and while it's by far slower than my FX5.6K, it doesn't hiccup. Yay OmegaCorner!

Anyway:

1. Mt. Haishiro has a green volcano! GFMX / GFFX, turn off reflections, glow, and bump mapping.

2. Gargoyle does not hold powerups properly while flying.

Uhm, I think there is more wrong with those pictures than just your game bugs, Ravo.

Also, I would like to announce that I haven't even played this game for a couple weeks now because I'm too fed up the issues, especially the crashes. Somebody PM me when the game is playable again.

I think all you need to do is disable reflections.

Raven, the Glow issues I think are not with BG but rather with the FX series.
From memory Rob's tried to do everythin he can to fix it but hasn't succeeded. The FX was also causing everything silver to be blue in older builds.
