Super8 v282 release

Post by func_qbism » Mon Jun 06, 2016 1:44 am

Download here: https://github.com/qbism/super8/releases/tag/v282

New in build 282
——————————————————
Changes in this release: FIXES!
Fix EF_ROTATE in demos (rotating pickup items)
Fix nolerp list
Fix crosshair location in menu
Set nativeaspect for all modes (including windowed modes now)
and...
Let lava be transparent? Heck yes.


Other relatively recent stuff
————————————————————————————————
more accurate color rendition.

r_saturation - cvar for map colored lighting intensity.

pixel doubling - for extra chunkiness (and render speed) automatically generate pixel-doubled option for compatible video modes. These resolutions are listed with an 'S' in the video mode menu.

Resolution support up to 4K, but not fully tested.

cl_beams_quakepositionhack - cvar to turn off automatic centering of lighting bolts. For mods that want an off-center bolt effect.

Improved overlapping transparencies - It will usually be possible to see translucent water through a translucent window, for example.

automatic unvised map detection (slightly glitchy) - if water was created opaque (like classic Quake maps) transparency is turned off. BUT to 'fake it', toggle r_novis and sv_novis cvars to 1.

r_novis - make water and similar textures transparent on old 'unvised' maps.

sv_novis - don't cull any items serverside. Normally the server culls most items that are hidden behind walls.

Fixed dedicated server (I hope).

Add tab-completion to loadpalette and r_palette.

Cheats always allowed in single-player mode.

The resolution menu in this build doesn't show any resolutions besides 4:3 and the higher res ones are unplayably slow.

Have you tried deleting super8.cfg and retry? If that doesn't work please attach s8report.txt
