View Full Version : Bug report

6th January 2000, 05:33
I would like to make a bug report for PowerDesk 5.41 which did not exist in 5.30. In Lithtech engine games that support single-pass multitexturing (read: Shogo and Blood2 both), my G400max is not allowing the game to use singlepass lightmapping. This is a serious problem, as it seriously impedes framerates. See www.tomshardware.com, (http://www.tomshardware.com,) benchmarks, for evidence. I have found that fps go down by nearly a third when using 5.41 due to this problem. Anyone else experience this problem?
