What works

Every tool works, you can model, texture, render, animate. All the main features seem to work.

You can use the entire program for work as long as you select to have 4 views and have opengl mode selected. Else use a single view and software rendering only. 

What does not

Opengl/Directx modes. Opengl mode works with one caveat. The app is not drawing 2d/3d correctly, the opengl surface is appearing on top of the 2d tools. It's a Z layer order that seems to be broken, if you click on the tools even though you can't see them they still work.

You can bypass this bug by selecting the quad view mode. This corrects the bad behaviour, all layering issues go away and the application becomes usable in opengl mode. Directx mode is very slow. The application can use DirectX mode, but it's so slow on modern hardware that it's basically unusable.

Workarounds

I had to run the program with four workspace views instead of one view, as the OpenGL surface would cover all the tool windows if I used a single view. I also have to alt-tab from the program and back to make the file menu re-appear. there are some Z-order issues with how the main work area window is drawn. 

What was not tested

A lot of things, such as scripting with python etc but every tool I used works including animated textures, booleans, shapes, sweeps, bones/kinematics, almost all modelling/texturing tools were tested.

Hardware tested

  • GPU: Nvidia

Additional Comments

This program runs quite well, it would be nice to have the single view mode issue fixed. trueSpace 6.6 is the last version with a clean interface before the version 7.6 interface design change that made the program more annoying to use.

Two bugs have been filed in bugzilla for the menu issue and the OpenGL layer z-order issue.
