2.3.1 upgrades
« on: November 11, 2011, 02:36:13 am »
I played the 2.4-dev for windows, and the sound and particles are awesome! (but not the graphics :-D ).

Its possible to upgrade the 2.3.1 with the sound of the 2.4 version?

It´s near the 2.4 version for windows?



P.D. Great work!! i want congratulate the team.

Thanks, iam glad you like the new sounds and particles. :) But what is wrong with the "graphics"? Everything got a huge improvment - textures, some models etc.

I wouldnt recommend that. The sound engine got a little overhaul in 2.4 and we added/modified some commands and sound events which would produce some terrible (sound) bugs.

Well, the graphics from the 2.3.1 (windows) are more detailed. The trees, the buildings... in the 2.4-dev that i played, maybe is for linux version, but the windows version have more detailed graphics. Not is wrong as you say, it´s only that 2.4-dev have some things, as terrain and buldings that appear more "paintbrushed" jejeje. Another thing, is the base management. I prefer the icons of the 2.3.1 for the installations. They are more detailed and the rough terrain is less darker.

More than that, excellent work!

Well are you sure about that? Sounds like something is wrong with your graphic settings. Because the textures of 2.4 got a higher resolution and more detail. Theyve also got shader effects like parallax mapping etc:
