Many scenarios in DL have the Din's Curse design of 3 main questgivers (Warmaster, Apothecary, Steward) who need to be protected for the town to survive. If one dies, a quest should pop up to get...

I don't think I remembered to report this: all skeleton monsters don't have normal maps.

Also, in general, metallic materials are the only things that change the color of specular reflections. I...

Slow mutation sounds like it could be a good balance point. Do you think you might move it to be the default if it plays better?

I don't think these things are alike. GLSL isn't a huge transition, and once you get there, adding transforms into them isn't that hard either. In general, if anything fails, it'll be immediate and...

Just to pitch in with my own stats... on my pretty good desktop machine that can handle most AAA games at 1080p:

In Zombasite (no shadows since they're gone in the last patch), I get a minimum of 42...

I don't think upgrading will help that much -- CPUs are pretty much stuck performance-wise, and the game isn't very multi-threaded. Compare the performance of the game (without shadows) to Zombasite...

The critical comparison is FPS between shadows on and shadows off, in the same area. Would you be able to post those numbers?

Nice!

Small suggestion: change the video trailer of the game on Steam to greatly reduce the volume from the gameplay itself. Use mostly music for the soundtrack.

Why? Well, aside from it sounding...

I agree. The only thing that happens with torches is that some monsters put them out. I would have wanted to see some monsters dislike the light and run away from it.

It's mostly decorative. If there's a darkness machine, they can make a big difference to visibility.

Surprising that it's that expensive. The article I saw suggested using a fragment shader that sampled from both textures and mixed them based on distance. That shouldn't be that bad, right?

FYI, I messed up the normal maps for the grass textures by putting regular images in there, which caused the textures to be overly darkened. Drove myself crazy with that for about an hour.

Fixed now.

Oh cool! Playing around with it quickly, 0.7-0.8 looks really nice, while 1.0 might be overkill.

I've changed my mind somewhat since making that comment. Different games do things differently,...

I see. So you keep the one tree for both releases.

Since I don't think this'll scale very well, I highly recommend using git, specifically with git LFS, to track your code + assets. Git LFS (large...

BTW I think switching to glsl shouldn't be difficult. You can use the compatibility profile, which allows mixing and matching of old and new paradigms.
