Transcendence Game Design

Transcendence 0.8b

Transcendence 0.8b is now available in the downloads section. This is a minor version with no new features or game changes. The only substantive change I've made is to add some debugging code to diagnose a problem with a video card reported by a player in the Transcendence Forums.

The game now has two more command-line switches:

/debugVideo

This command-line switch turns on debugging code that will output frame-rate information to the screen. In addition, it will generate output in the Debug.log file that describes the current video card parameters and properties.

/debugNonExclusive

This command-line switch causes Transcendence to run in non-exclusive DirectX mode. This means that we do not do triple-buffering and we do not prevent other applications from using DirectX while Transcendence is running.
