First release of Dreamfall: The Longest Journey
There is no overlighting anymore in the intro scene.
The blue swirls from the portal now show like they should.
Torches and flames are rendered correctly, perhaps still a little bit off near the base.
The Purple” transparent focus field" gets displayed correctly now.
Volumetric fog is visible.
The campfire at the start (Winter) now looks pretty good, looked more like a lava lamp in 0.9.31 .
The game is very stable, I did not have a single crash yet.
What does not
The sound skips a lot at the very start; at the intro. After that, I did not really notice sound problems again.
The Cell-phone still wrongly has a blue/purple “skin”. It seems some kind of 'overlay' is not applied.
The “Focus Field Circles” around NPC’s are off. They should be 'flat' purple-ish circles, not columns of light.
In-Game videos, still don’t appear.
While most other things work like a charm, this fact alone makes the game “unplayable”, since these videos are essential to the plot line and them not appearing means you miss a lot of context you miss a lot of the context.
Thumbnail screenshots for savegames do not show, instead there is just a black rectangle.
What was not tested
Playing the game from the start until the very end.
Needs a no-cd patch to work , and needs to have d3dx_27.dll copied over to wine's windows/system32 directory. Also, will sometimes crash if sound is active, such as when Amarok is playing.
