Pity, my AMD is awesome, I sold my old 3rd gen Intel from 2012, got a new Ryzen 3600 with Msi gaming plus motherboard, just over a month now, I kept my MSi Amd Radeon RX-580 graphics card wich is around 3 years old now but it runs unbelievably well with the new system and new AMD drivers, I get full CPU boast on all 6 cores (4200Mhz) and the Ram at 3400Mhz with XMP profile, very stable is after a new bios update from Msi, very happy with my new setup and it was really not expensive,

I might build a second PC again dedicated to Wing Commander and older games and mods etc, my laptop is just too old now... might even just get rid of it...

As I say I tend to avoid AMD as it interferes with work due to the high number of driver issues and not targeting PC. In this case though as PC is the target AMD would be the better card to develop with.

If I stumble by a cheap one I’ll look into it.

It's fine Pedro, I'd be happy if you could and I appreciate all your effort !

I don't have any driver issues besides the model pack, but its really no a problem at all : -)

It doesn't work quite like that ;) The reliability of AMD drivers is only really a problem for developers, not end users. A commercial product will have been tested on all cards. It's also worse as this is OpenGL based and there aren't a lot of commercial products using OpenGL.

I already knew that Pedro, you already mentioned you don't have AMD hardware to see into it..will be cool to see it working later on my high end PC, that's all...

So I played trough Prophecy with the new model pack, the alien ships looks especially good, Manta and Moray look more aggressive or alive, I like the little neon green bumps, looks like they stick out to infect you. :)

At Level 13, Blair gets upducted, there's that comm-station, I've noticed the difference especially on that mission, the station looks really good and stand out, looks like something really new...

the cap ships looks awesome, on the last levels especially, proper textures and detail now.

I started Secret Ops now,

Anyway my laptop turned out not so bad, I cleaned her up a bit, updated new Intel HD graphics drivers and optimized the settings, I can play both games properly without any lag or low FPS. luckily it has a HDMi output so I connected to my wide LED monitor, looks good with the standard 1366x768 laptop resolution. well at least good enough !

Thanks! We've been working on a few unlimited updates as well as new Cerberus, Vesuvius, and some fixes to Midway. The new cerb and Vesuvius are making use of the dead capship code. It should punch up the cutscene where the St. Helen's gets it. Also going to finish the cruise ship and Dula 7

Thanks for the update, that sounds really cool, interesting for me with Prophecy/SOP game play, it's always fun, you quickly get hooked for more action and I always seem to find something I hadn't noticed before.
