Re: Any chance of Vulkan support?

@FordGT90Concept Thanks for pointing out that Wikipedia section! I had no idea support went that far back, although I suspect it still represents a rather small market share compared to all computing devices, that is probably a large subsection of gamers there. My father, a software architect at a d...

Re: Any chance of Vulkan support?

Not sure if IDGI is using a custom deferred renderer again. I'm quite sure that they used the Source Engine (dunno which exact version of it)... they have put some custom shaders on top, but the foundation was source. Which is NOT a deferred rendering engine. Yet it solely depends on the Unreal dev...

Re: Trying to decipher a sleep sequence

btw: If I remember the infos right, these hieroglyphs cant be read by the king, am I right? So maybe is this a message from the guardian church? Nope! The King pulled in those Sumerian characters as an ad-hoc substitution cipher for the English alphabet when he was toying with us in the ARG. So he ...

Re: Any chance of Vulkan support?

As a graphics programming student, I feel that I have to point out that Vulkan isn't just a peripheral to be supported like Oculus Rift -- it's a straight-up rewrite of the graphics pipeline, requiring a better card and different drivers. If the game already exists to any extent in another graphics ...

Re: How did you hear about CONSORTIUM: The Tower?

I got CONSORTIUM in a Humble Bundle. Got sucked in really quickly, especially with lots of time to read the discoveries docs. (Hah, those were the days. Ages ago.) Later, the announcement of the tower came out. It was a no-brainer for me to support this universe. It's the perfect level of science fa...

Re: ARG V2 Dialer Collaboration!

I've solved all of databurst 1. The get-id system used to be numeric IDs ranging between 1 and 111, with an additional 0 code that did weird things. I've seen every page, three or four rough drafts of every page, and one page I haven't found any link to (which I suspect is hidden in the base64 codes...
