Drakan: 10th Anniversary - Roadmap

Post by Shelim »

Drakan: 10th Anniversary roadmap

Previous version
  • Fixed crash-to-desktop on certain (mostly) ATI cards
Current version
  • Removed normal distortion for certain textures (Rynn's and other human's faces)
  • CRC for certain "detectors" (like menu, skybox, etc.) won't be hardcoded and will be available in Mod10th/CRC (for custom content creators)
Next version
  • Fixed "memory cannot be read", crash-to-desktop level error that can very rarely happen while using Arokh's flame (secondary attack)
  • Fixed strange glitches, that happen rarely on some graphics cards
In longer run
  • Eliminate allocations per frame (will boost speed with low amount of available RAM)
  • Autoupdater fixes (option to disable automatic update, or ignore specific version)
  • Textures/Shaders gallery available directly within Launcher
  • Alpha-operations optimizations (should give 5-15% FPS boost on lower-end hardawre)
  • SSE support for all vertex calculation (Pentium 3+ required, this should give another 5% of speed boost)
  • Fixed bug which will give incorrect render region while changing resolution in game (this will lower FPS by about 5-10%)
Do not follow where the path may lead - go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.

Danger? Hah! I walk on the wild side! I laugh in the face of danger! Ha! Ha! Ha!

I'd love to see the updated version.
I don't install things that have an "Auto-update" feature that I cannot turn off. I never allow anything to update by itself.
Thanks for your work though.
