Re: Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

I just realized the InstallSDB.bat has an issue. I should've put: sdbinst "%~dp0Drakan.sdb" Instead of: sdbinst %CD%\Drakan.sdb I'll upload the fixed version later today. The latter version will fail if path has spaces in it and if user did something that caused current directory to be something els...

Re: Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

Maybe it didn't download correctly? I've checked all download locations and can verify that the ZIP file was uploaded correctly. It could also be that it fails to extract properly for some reason. I haven't dealt with WinZIP in years, Windows itself handles ZIP files just fine. This is something tha...

Re: Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

Which step are you having problems with regarding AiO Patch? Most things should work correctly if you open the ZIP file, go into Drakan folder, then copy everything from it to your own Drakan folder (wherever you installed it) and answer yes when it asks you if you want to overwrite certain files. D...

Re: Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

The copy I have on Google Drive is already patched with the AiO Patch, contains majority of player created levels and the editing tools, it is packed correctly so unless you did something wrong, you should end up with the Drakan folder from which you can simply run Drakan.exe to start the game. 445+...

Re: Disable backface culling

There is no such option as far as I'm aware, though the engine will happily render everything in front of you if level's visibility data dictate so. These optimizations are disabled in the Engine.exe which is used for 3D view rendering when you're working with the Level Editor, everything in front u...

Re: Drakan Display issues halp

Hold Shift when you're starting the game. What does it say under display mode? Try setting the same resolution as your desktop is running at. I've seen a case where the graphics hardware presented resolution which didn't actually work and resulted in black display. You can also try and see if it wor...

Re: Reinstalling Drakan on Windows 7

Are you talking about SETUP.EXE file inside Setup folder on the game CD? Or running it indirectly via Autorun.exe. If running either of them gives you the message you posted, it means that the file is corrupted so Windows fails to execute it. CD may have deteriorated to the point that it can't be re...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

I'm blind, there was another glitch in Alwarren, it's fixed so we're now at 2.58. Any volunteers for updating visibility data in Ruined Village and Volcano? :D

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Arokhs Twin, you can put the current version on the site. I think it will stay like it is for a while now. I have no idea how to tackle the remaining issues, the rest of the game is in pretty much the best state it ever was.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

I've fixed some glitches with the new texel alignment code, there was vertical line going through the lower-right portion of the map and some blurring was visible in certain parts of menus, most apparent on Options>Graphics menu's scrollbar. There is just one minor glitch left, the health bar leaves...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

New and final update for the time being will come out next weekend when I have more time. It turned out there are some stability issues with the latest fix for multiplayer disconnect issue and the variant from 13th November update is the most stable. Should have tested more than just 3 multiplayer r...

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

I do get the mobile version as in the screenshot you posted on my phone, just the "Request desktop site" option produces the hybrid version instead of full desktop version. I wonder if "Request desktop site" does anything else besides that it removes Android from user agent string. Not really famili...

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

It's not a major issue, but it's very strange. Looks like there is this third layout that looks like a hybrid between full desktop and full mobile version. The first screenshot is from my phone, the second is from Android x86, showing regular desktop site as it also appears normally on computers. On...

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

Sony Xperia E3, latest official ROM (Android Kitkat 4.4.4), Chrome 55. Note that there aren't any issues with the mobile version itself, just requesting desktop version (Request desktop site option) doesn't get me quite the same thing as on actual PC. Selected theme doesn't make a difference. I trie...
