I'm not a power-user, so most of my 'gaming' is limited to the more simple things, as in just playing the games and not tinkering with settings much or modding anything.
I have some questions about the newest version of Doomsday. I actually asked this on a previous thread before I realized the thread was way old and unlikely to be seen, so I migrated it here.
I am still using version 1.6. I have resisted upgrading to the newer versions because I didn't like having to always go back in and fix a number of settings the upgrades kept changing. So, I am downloading version 1.15.2. The only reason I am upgrading is because this version (1.6) does the exact same thing as described in this thread, except mine will do this spontaneously upon trying to load a saved game. It has been doing this more and more often, and there's no way to load a previous level so you don't lose your place as much, so I end up having to start all over from the beginning. I was hoping the newer version would have long taken care of this problem, but now I'm not so sure http://dengine.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=7&t=2060&p=13923#p13923
I don't want to upgrade if I'm risking my settings being changed again AND still having the crash-to-desktop problem as well. I don't see the benefit to that. Plus, my system is really old (XP, sp3) and it may not have the balls to drive a larger engine....(??). My machine is a good though, clean system that was restored a year ago or so, and runs well. It can easily drive Doom3, but yeah....I know I need to upgrade the box.
So, would there be any issues to upgrade to the newer version of Doomsday? Is this crashing stuff been fixed? Or am I just being a pain in the rump?
