Over the past several months since our demo release, FriendlyFire has been working on fine tuning our DX9 integration as well as adding a few extra components to make this mod look even better. The below video highlights these news additions: lens flare, improved dynamic lighting, reflection maps, distortion maps and our work in progress shadow mapping.

just a question: do you still use DX's forward renderer or it is some sort of custom deffered one? As huge battles will have it's impact on rendering speed I guess.

It's a custom deferred one.

In fairness to Xarian, most of us not involved with the FW:TOW project do feel a little frustrated that the dx9 conversion has existed for what must be getting on a couple of years or something now, yet none of us can play with it. Who wouldn't be when we can see the obvious benefits of it. Xarian just flipped that's all, his meds can no longer compensate for his desire for that which he can see, but can't have

I guess the real story here is that the mod has taken you guys a lot longer to produce than was anticipated, we all had our hopes up for christmas last year, and in many ways we were not just hoping to play the mod, we were also looking forward to seeing it work on vanilla fl shortly afterwards.

Personally, as frustrating as I find it too, I still vote for you on moddb, because all bs aside, it's impressive work and has to be recognised as such. Well done to you all, now hurry up!

What you're saying is that we should have said we'd keep it for ourselves, or what? Nobody is entitled to anything we're doing.

Funny that when Freelancer took years more than anticipated, people just salivated and waited patiently. I don't recall people throwing their toys out of the pram because obviously they were purposefully delaying all of this.

I mean fuck, these things take inordinate amounts of time. This is one of those cases where I'd say shut up if you don't know what you're talking about. You should be happy to know you'll get it at all, happy the entire thing merely exists.

It's infuriating just how entitled people can be. Shadow mapping took me a MONTH to get right, and that's just one small piece. And now you mean to tell me you not only want it, but you also want it NOW? Screw you. You're not paying me, you're not even helping me.

This will be done when it's done. We're close, but we're not there yet. I can't believe I'm having to write all of this.
