Even if you lower the settings, the water in Where Giants Have Fallen is all stripy.

Re: Eternal X 1.2

ETA: 1.3b3 appears to experience the same crash issues. 1.3b2 will load with texture quality set to “Highest”; however, at least “Where Giants Have Fallen” will crash almost immediately after loading. That’s strange . Did you try my LAA build of 1.3b3? http://treellama.org/AlephOne-LAA.zip When I t...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Leela took control of the K'lia junction from Hathor in chapter 4, and then Hathor switched to using the Dreadnaught's junction. Then Leela came back to the future, and then left K'lia, so it's junction was unoccupied at the time and the humans could manually control it. Ah thanks. I was trying to ...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Quick question about the plot. How did the humans on K’lia operate its Cybernetic Junction without Hathor’s consent? They used hers to replace S’bhuth’s after all.

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Could a possible fix for a future version of Aleph One be to detect when that Windows 32-bit process memory limit is being approached and automatically reduce texture quality settings? I’m not sure if that really solves the problem since stable versions of Aleph One seem to work fine. Obviously som...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

You can do all five of them without the chip. Are you sure you can complete the level without the chip - not just reach the end, but read the terminal and be sent back in time? I just tested it, and was unable to activate the terminal without using the chip, as it should be. Of course, I see now th...

Where do the Jjaro fit in their own time loop? I understand that beings that choose not to be W’rkncacnter lock themselves in a causal loop to limit their perception of reality.

You shouldn't be able to proceed without it. Nor should you be able to survive the burning sun long enough to get that screenshot. If you can finish the level without it and not be taking damage when you fall off, then we've got three bugs with this level O.O You can do all five of them without the...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Two observations so far about the Inti Station levels. 1. I have no idea if the uplink chip outside is possible to get. 2. The Jjaro BOBs in The Philosophy of Time Travel have no walking animation. If 1. is about Philosophy of Time Travel, yes, the outside chip is obtainable but you can fall off! S...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Even at 2048x2048 (which is unnecessary aside from landscapes) that's 4 MB per texture with DXTC. To get to 2 GB would still take 250 textures (Aleph One stores a copy in RAM, and OpenGL does too) which I find inconceivable. I've never seen an Eternal screenshot that looks like it has more than a h...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Where Giants Have Fallen must be the most resource-intensive one, because it’s still crashing my game. Even when I turn the settings down, the water is either pitch black or running in stripes.

Re: Eternal X 1.2

So, one person reports "Highest" walls work fine, but another has to set them down to "Higher" to run. Still others, myself included, can use "Unlimited" For walls, "Highest" limits them to 1024x1024. Are there really textures in Eternal bigger than this!? Also, are you both running 64-bit Windows?...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Huh, I think both of the Assimilated slots (normal and VacBob) were at one point used for some other monsters. I was going to say MADDs were one of them but apparently those are also on this level and look normal? I think one of them might have been intended to be the monster for Hathor herself as ...

Re: Eternal X 1.2

Just to be clear, that one VacBob chiiling outside the airlock was added by me, it was not out there nor was there a way to go out there in 1.1. It shouldn't be all the BoBs. The BoBs in the north half of the station should be normal BoBs, the BoBs inside the south half of the station are all "Assi...

Not for a little bug like that that has apparently been around for years and years now. Maybe for whatever we end up calling the next release probably in about a year, though.
