New Client Progress 06/06/2011

Hi Guys,

As some of you may know we've been working hard on the new client progression. Currently we're trying to rebuild the esoma client structure whilst using newer technologies and fixing various esoma based bugs.

What makes the client so different?

    Only for new / specific images due to texture memory limits
    We're no longer limited to 256 colours
    We've changed the use of SPL to png and removed the awful pink transparency colour
    We can support "semi transparency" now

    Other Stuff
    We're using CEGUI for the interface.
    The client will eventually support higher resolutions.
    With this new client we have more power to protect, improve and add to.

Importantly since we're building this from the ground up we want you guys to get involved. Due to this we welcome any suggestions client based either interface, improvements or just aesthetics.

Can see what we've done so far here.

seeing as u can use more than 256 colours and will eventually provide better resolutions. does it mean ur gna be working on the visual aspects of soma too?
as in will it be more in depth etc.

Also, would our bag space be increased? or have multiple bags. would be a nice little addition.
