Ogre Client Update (version 1.0.4.9)

General Changes


  • Fixed bug preventing rotation-keys to work while left-mouse button was down in first-person.
  • Stepping up effect on objects (also player avatar) is now smoother, fixes camera stuttering when walking up stairs.
  • Speed-up room geometry creation time (faster room loading).
  • Upgraded Ogre Engine from 1.10.0 to 1.10.5.
  • Upgraded CEGUI library from 0.8.5 to 0.8.7.
  • Improved image cache handling, reduce micro lags due to large removals of images at once.

  • Additionally ‘prepare’ Ogre resource groups at loading-stage (even if not pre-loaded).
  • Added more developer data in the Stats window (left-click on FPS number).
  • The camera in third-person mode will now collide with the room, e.g. will zoom in if you try to view your avatar through a wall. Camera will zoom back out when space is available to do so.

  • Smoother mouselook aiming.
