jakj Posted October 22, 2012 Share Posted October 22, 2012 I'd like to take a quick cross-section of the Technic community to see what kind of graphics you folks are capable of. So far, I've been targetting OpenGL 2.1 / GLSL 1.20 (roughly DirectX 9 and Shader Model 2/3), but I've read the newer specs, and I'm wanting to move up. So, I want to find out what proportion of the userbase here is limited to what level of GL/DX support. The basic options are: OpenGL 2 / GLSL 1 (DirectX 9 / Shader Model 2/3) OpenGL 3 / GLSL 3 (DirectX 10 / Shader Model 4) OpenGL 4 / GLSL 4 (DirectX 11 / Shader Model 5) And, as a shortcut, if you're using Windows XP, you're on DirectX 9. If you are using XP as your main gaming platform, that's important information too, as XP has only (roughly) 1.5 years of support left at all. If you don't know how to figure any of that out, just post what kind of graphics card or integrated graphics you have. (If you have integrated graphics and don't know how to figure out what you have, post what make/model computer you have, such as "Dell E521".) If you feel like posting how much VRAM you have, that's cool too, but not vital, because memory allocation is already dynamic to how much you try to load, so if you have less VRAM, you can simply load less.
