Release Notes

Particle Tools

Some minor improvements to our Particle Tools.

Changes include:

  • Fixed GL Context-setting bug that caused ParticleTools to crash in VDMX (and probably in a lot of other situations). Thanks to mrray and magnetmus for troubleshooting, and to cwright for the actual fix.
  • Added "Force: Explosion" patch.
  • Made some minor GL rendering performance improvements --- dropped some of the unused texture manipulation stuff, and took some other shortcuts.
  • Enabled some additional compiler optimizations.
  • Included both 32-bit and 64-bit versions of the patches.
