    Following the release of the 1st beta here, I’ve now released a 2nd with these changes:

      Updated some tank textures with the latest textures
      Changed the rules key to bring up the player dialog
      Added a new ultra display setting with most things turned up to 11
      Renamed a few items on the display settings dialog
      Stopped round from ending when a new bot is about to fill a vacated place

    Nice, does that find the current desktop resolution and attempt to match, or too much code to add atm?

    Shouldn’t everything turned upto 11, mean everything’s turned up, including, Texture Sizes and Effects Detail.

    Also, setting framerate limit to 30 by default would save a lot of energy aswell, those that want over 30fps, well, that’s their choice.

    I do agree with having 8 audio channels for the Ultra setting tho.

    I have a possibly dumb query…does this install separate from the default install?

    I’d like to help test, but don’t want to bork my existing install. I know when I Beta’d Opera builds it was separate.

    It seems to be, which I think is a new feature.
    It creates a seperate folder in my games for the beta.

    Yes. During Beta cycles, it is installed seperately.
    Once the finalizations are made, then the full release will be coded to replace
    existing versions.

    It shouldn’t stop you from simply renaming the old game folder and having
    multiple versions going. Mods for each revision can be stored in globalmods
    to prevent mixups.

    Furthermore, you should keep backups of your scorched files anyway ESPECIALLY ids.xml file.

    I have my avatar, full .scorched3d folder from /users/%Username%/.scorched3d or /home/%Username%/.scorched3d

    Cos loosing ya id SUX once ya start getting ya medals mounted up!
