3D models are only cached once per model and do not affect performance that much.

Sorry I’ve forgotten to answer this, I’m going for complete freedom of exploration and player-centric gameplay. With a bit of GS2 linearity sprinkled inbetween the sandbox areas.

Just have beaten the second demo. Great stuff!

I don't usually like 3D platformers, but this one is just amazing!
Well, as long as it won't make me platform on bamboos again. :lol:

Thanks for that Captain! That mod looks pretty interesting.

Also I've read back a page prior, and running map 2 on Vulkan does make it run better.
It still lagged a bit even with light effects disabled, but it was more manageable than before.

Thank you for playing and thanks for the feedback! If you wanna see more, I'd suggest you to go collect the remaining trophies...

I wish I could, but they are just so darn well hidden!
I only "found" the two that were in plain sight on both maps and I could not find the others.
I am most likely just blind there though.

So, my thoughts from playing the demo:
- Melee is great but it seems it can really benefit from ground pound move, or something like that. I've often found myself in situations where I can't help but think "I wish I was able to ground pound". Lots of verticality means lots of opportunities to jump onto enemies.
- Shotgun is perfect.
- Map 2 looked so promising but, well, sub-30 FPS. I hope performance will improve before the final release.

I think it was even worse by couple FPS in Vulcan.

I will look into it, but I’m afraid I won’t be able to do anything without butchering certain sections of it, which is something that I don’t know if I’m willing to do.

I've rolled a hotfix for the demo with a brand new particle effect for waterfalls, that's better looking AND drastically improved the performance in those areas!

Again, it's very impressive. I think the quick fix actually did something! After turning off some fancy graphic options and turn on the vulkan, Serenity Shrine is not so sluggish anymore. I guess you need to lower the graphics for a better gameplay with foolproof speed.

And here's a little feedback: I think B. Ender, who guards the Trumpetbuss cage needs a dialogue if you have not enough big coins like that TFC imp clerk. He refuses to open the cage without saying anything. Informing-wise, some dialogue would be very helpful.
