I'm happy to announce that the first release candidate (RC1) of the upcomding Ca3DE (Tech-)Demo is now available at http://carsten.ca3de-community.de/Ca3DE-Demo-RC1.zip (roughly 210 MB)
[EDIT: RC1 is no longer available as it has been replaced by a more current release. See the newer posts below for the latest link.]
Please test, and let me know what you think!
Very important notes about the RC1:
- This is a Release Candidate, not the final demo. It has known problems and a few features are missing. See the other points in this list.
- Minimum System Requirements: 1 GB main RAM, 256 MB video (GPU) RAM.
- The initial dialog defaults to the BPRockB map, you have to change that to the TechDemo map manually. [is fixed for RC2]
- The TechDemo map takes a far too long time to load - roughly 2 full minutes on my machine. [is fixed for RC3, down to less than 60 seconds]
- This package contains only Windows, but no Linux binaries. Linux binaries will be included with one of the next RCs and of course with the final release. [is fixed for RC2]
- By default, the number of simultaneously active dynamic light sources is limited to 3. Use the console command to print the current limit, and
Code: Select all
print(cv.cl_maxLights)to set a new limit (0 in the example). [is fixed for RC3, set a new reasonable limit]
Code: Select all
- Some too bright pixels (mostly red) in otherwise dark places is a known bug. [is fixed for RC4]
- The above link will only work as long as the RC1 is current, which however is to be expected short-lived and to be updated/replaced soon. If you find the link not working, check for more recent RCs or the final release of the Ca3D-Engine demo.
