Deathworks: I think I'd rather fix the calculations.

Slartibartfast: Yep, definitely your card.

I don't know if anyone has mentioned these issues yet, but just posting "me too" may not be helpful.  Now, I've never used any of the OpenGL D## releases before, so I don't have much to compare them too.  But here's some things I've had-

-Any time the cursor is on the screen, and then I cancel it away, the window flashes.  It's a little annoying.
-The performance is faster (maybe, I usually cap FPS at 100 anyway, since otherwise the game would surpass 500 at embark), but the program stutters and freezes every 10-15 seconds.  This might be another program running, but I always have other programs (like a browser) running before without causing issues.
-Loading and saving takes twice as long as it did before, and worldgen was a crawl on a Medium sized world.

Just to check, having the DF accelerator dll in the same folder as this new version would be bad, yes?

It's not an embark so much as seven dwarves having a simultaneous strange mood and going off to build an artifact fortress that menaces with spikes of awesome and hanging rings of death.

I object the automatic numlock toggling in DF. It can be an option in init, but turned off by default.

Btw, can you explain why this version uses custom cursor?

I don't like automatic things as well. I mostly operate DF by numpad keys, so...

Hi!

Okay, full screen to windowed switching seems to be more of an issue; when I started again, F11 suddenly wouldn't work. I turned resizable window on and it worked again.

Even though I have all mouse interaction turned off, when the mouse is moved, the mouse cursor will appear on the screen.

Starting my first fortress, I decided to switch to windowed mode - and it seems that doing so while not paused (game speed at 200 FPS, which is the maximum I set) made something collapse - the game stopped responding and the mode change did not happen. The task manager said that it was hogging 50% of the CPU workload - given that I am on a dual core system, that means it has maxed out one CPU, if I understand that correctly. Memory consumption was only at 380 MB without any changes occurring.

... Partial:N is also horrible (but instead of flickering it seems like it simply doesn't erase the previous screen and so you get a sort of motion blur effect).

Getting this as well - the old screen content takes a while to fade with partial of 2 or higher.
Can't say that my current game is much faster with the 2d modes, but I just realized I got elven traders in my depot, so in hindsight it is probably a bad comparison. Should start a new game for testing purposes.

Edit: Expectedly, it works better on a fresh embark without littering elves. Hovers around 40 (9) in the 2D modes with the G_FPS at 10. I might trying to lower it to match the stated G_FPS.

I don't know where to ask this, but i'll ask it here.

Is there a way I can change the end button back to space bar, I hate reaching for ESC all the time to do anything.

Just change it in the keybindings. Worked for me back in 31.01/.02/.03, haven't had time to check out .04 yet.

Okay, made some serious testing with the speed. Here is the settings I use:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The settings are more or less the same I used with .03, though raise the FPS_GAP to 2000 from 1500.

Title screen:
In .03, the maximum was somewhere 1000-1200 FPS, so never reached the gap. In .04, I reached the 2000 FPS, which is the maximum with my settings  :o

World generation with parameters -screen:
In .03 it was around 1000 FPS. In .04, It started in 1500, stayed there for a bit, then raised to 2000.

The world generation:
.03: Starts out with 100 FPS, usually drops down to 10 FPS pretty soon. Most of the times even as low as 1 FPS if I'm genning world with more history than 300 years.
.04: While creating the actual world, the FPS hanged around 200 FPS. When history creation begun, the FPS dropped to 9 FPS for brief moment, then went back to 15 FPS. After that, it dropped about 1 FPS per 100 years, ending around 9 FPS with history of over 1000 years.

Offloading units:
.03: The numbers were stranges, jumping even up to 20k.
.04: Slow, went down to 300 FPS and still dropping.

Embark location selection -screen:
.03: Around 400 FPS, dropping down to 100 when moving cursor.
.04: 2000 FPS all the time

The game:
.03: While paused, the normal is somewhere around 500-800 FPS, depending on the location of embark (3*3 with brook). While running, the FPS may get to even 250 FPS, but that's rare, usually it stays somewhere around 100-120 FPS, dropping down to 70 FPS after some time. So far it has been pretty stable 70, only occasion peeks in lag, usually caused by something like generating invasion or such.
.04: Paused stays in 2000 FPS. Unpaused, fresh game runs in mighty 550 FPS with one woodcutter cutting trees and one miner mining couple of 3 tiles wide passage.


So, to summarize the results, which does not take in account the possible affects of graphics, generally the game is running much faster than .03. I will return to this when I have fort with bit of age behind, so I can tell how the FPS changes during the time.

Where can I change the key bindings?

Yay!  New version!

On OS X 10.5.8, with 0.31.04.  I tried to save my embark setup.  The default name is "Profile 1", which I wanted to change.  I discovered that backspace inserted "mountain" characters (triangles) and delete did nothing.  In the end, I saved it with a name full of weird characters and then edited data/init/embark_profiles.txt.

It's a minor inconvenience, but I'm worried that it will recur when I'm editing things I really care about (like profession names, etc.)
