I am happy for the good news.
Sometimes I have also needed a new computer, to continue working...
When I install BoD in a new computer, sometimes these problems arose: The words are black, the video of the beginning is not seen or the game is blocked at the beginning, the loading screens do not show or blinks ...
Well, as you know, it may be due to incompatibility with Windows or with the graphics card.
The game worked well in Windows XP...
The problem of the black letters, is corrected with the OpenGL graphic mode.
The problem with the video of the beginning, depends on if you have the old codecs or not. To save the conflict, modify the name of the video or delete it, or go to the part where the code is running the video and comment it with #. So the video should not provoke anything, but it will not be seen either.
The other compatibility problems with software and hardware, could be solved if we configure the executable file (Blade.exe) in "Windows XP compatibility mode". It is not 100% sure, but it should work.
I had other unexpected errors, while testing the Hyperborean Mod; but that would be due to conflicts in the code, due to its complexity.
The low performance or slowdown, can be for too many particles, special effects, lights or shadows ... This depends on the graphics card, or if there is enough RAM. The RAS engine works well with a lot of data load, whether they are variables or loops of functions ... the limit is put by the hardware capacity and software compatibility.
Greetings to all friends.
