The readme file has been updated. Later, I will upload the final version, which contains the tips section for the E2 demo.

Great, SC! I KNOW I'm gonna love it!

I was going to sleep, when I found this new post. Well, um.......

---

Later this morning....

Curled up in a ball, in a corner, rocking back and forth mumbling:

Can't sleep........

Must wait for BCM Demo2...........

Need Caffine...................

Afternoon/Night....

Glued to computer screen checking out planets and stuff, half-awake, half-asleep, drinking some heavily caffinated drink to keep that one half awake. Playing BCM non-stop.

---

Well, I think that's going to be my day today. Just kidding! I have a life, which means I might or might not have the time to download and play it (hopefully the first one --crosses fingers--)

Lol! Good night, U.S.A.!

ARGGH!!!! For the past two weeks every day I've been lugging around CD to burn for E2 at work. Guess which day I forget to bring it with me?

I guess I'll be getting E2 tomorrow...

YES!

I've been checking the sites (3dfiles, voodooextreme and the rest). Still no sign of it yet.

SC will you post a message here when you've released it?

Patience, Warpcore. If SC says today, it's today, man. He's still probably uploading it somewhere and contacting the host sites to retrieve and update their download pages.

Maybe try this:

"Come again!" - Apu (The Simpsons)

Uh, try doing that once every half-hour. I'll be going back and forth like that all day.

Hope I get to stay in today. Really want to play demo 2.......

Quick tech question for SC.

Will the Second Demo Episode come with more of the optimizations enabled? I remembered reading the readme of Episode 1, which said they were disabled for the time being. Just wanted to know.

Yes. Its based on the fully optimized v2.3.xx kernel. But don't expect miracles if you only have the minimum system requirements. And unlike the E1 demo, the E2 demo will be a release build and with no debug code in it. So, it will run as fast as possible.

To see all kernel updates since the E1 demo was released, check the VCF

Hey SC...

Regarding the two graphical fixes that were needed for E1, namely turning of Video Bios Shadowing, and disabling the Z-buffer, what impact do you think those might have on other games?
