We'd like to wish the best of luck and prosperity for 2016. Furthermore, from the FlatUniverse perspective this year is going to be unique. For the past five months we've been a little quite and we are sorry for that. The reasons are interesting and always for the benefit of the project. Let us get into details:
- MaslasBros Studio. By the end of January 2016, all the FlatUniverse production will move to the brand new MaslasBros studio. The studio was under construction for the past three months and soon you gonna have some sneakpics into the home of FlatUniverse.
- Original Soundtrack. A long time Wing Commander fan has officially joined the FlatUniverse team to create an original score for our project. We are proud to welcome Mr. Cory Fujimori.
- Multiplayer. As it is mentioned before, we've been working a lot undercarriage and the reason is simple; multiplayer. We are heading towards version 1.0 where Flat Universe will actually get into Beta state and the multiplayer features will be available and ready to play. Hopefully, from the next update you gonna have a premature taste of it.
Last but not least there is an answer that we owe to Salk. But first let us refresh into our minds the issue:
Just wanted to report that the 32 bit executable does not work on Windows XP SP3. Starting the .exe file produces no result (in the task manager, the file is reported as running).
We found a modern enough Windows Box able to carry Windows XP 32bit with official drivers and this is what we've got:
The pc that was used for the benchmark is an Intel i3 2nd generation 2GB of Ram and an Intel GPU with shared memory from the RAM.
From our experience a driver might be causing the problem that Salk reported and the balance falls to the unofficial Nvidia drivers that he was forced to install. I remind you that the physics in our game engine is working very closely to the Nvidia PhysX API, and that gives a logical explanation to the problem that he reported.
As always, we'd like to thank for your support and interest and we are excited to say that 2016 is going to be Lot Of Fun
Stay tuned, there are a lot more to come,
