I've got a version of 1.6.2 that I'd love some help testing:

https://kronosaur.com/downloads/TranscendenceNext.zip

The major change is that I've switched to a newer version of DirectX. This should help with some of the problems Steam users are having (such as no overlay). But since this is a core change with potential for compatibility problems, I'd love people to try it and see how it works on various hardware.

I've tested this on Windows 10, 8, 7 and XP. I've also tested on WINE (Ubuntu) and it seems to work. Please let me know if you encounter any problems with graphics. If you do have a problem, please use the /debugVideo setting to get some extra info in the logs.

1.6.2 also fixes some other bugs. The full list is here: https://ministry.kronosaur.com/program. ... sed&tag=34

If all goes well, I'd love to have a released version in a week or two.

Thank you!

 I get a blank black screen on my end. I ran it from command line and have a lengthy list of complaints while it was loading up. I’m sending that and the Debug.log output via PM.

Of all the things I’ve lost in life, I miss my mind the least. (I’m having a lot more fun without it!)

Downloading it now for testing. In the longer term, might be worth setting up a beta release option on Steam. You'll get more hardware specs over there.



Edit: Possible bug. Music system in my game plays the game theme once, then nothing else...it doesn't play the intro theme when you start a D&O game, and then goes silent. I started both games while the theme was playing (just after starting the game), and the main theme wasn't cut off by the game start. Nothing on debug.log, but here you go anyway (two games with it, both fresh starts, second has debug video turned on):

Are you running on Linux/WINE? There is a bug with music that I haven't figured out yet: https://ministry.kronosaur.com/record.hexm?id=6262

Nope. I'm on Win8.1 (fully updated except for me disabling microsoft's new "let's add a system for harvesting user data and sneak it into our updates" crapware)

I tried to load my yesterday game and some problems occurred.
It may be a bug.
