Release date: July 5, 2005

  • Made some adjustments so that the projects will build correctly on the Mac using Xcode 2.0.
  • The main project now compiles and links successfully under Dev-cpp. However, there are still issues preventing the game module and tools from being linked to the main executable.
  • Removed the requirement that the GL_ARB_fragment_program_shadow extension be available in order to get the ARB1 shader path. The Mac and some notebook graphics drivers don't expose this and it forced the engine into the NV20 path.
  • Added a safety mechanism to the string table resource so that attempting to retrieve a string whose identifier doesn't exist causes the string "<missing>" to be returned.
  • Added support for 24-bit TGA files in the Texture Importer tool. It will now accept 16-bit, 24-bit, and 32-bit images, either compressed or uncompressed.
  • Removed an experimental deferred lighting effect. Not enough bang for the buck.
