Image Dump

I, too, have a soft spot for planets illuminated by different colored stars. :)  These are very nice shots and the ringed gas giant is simply stunning. Thank you :) I'm still lost in this binary system. I've spent enough time in Space Engine to know that scale is incomprehensible, but having just s...

This is the coolest thing I've seen so far. This is RS 1228-2706-0-0-114 B1, in orbit around a white dwarf, which is part of a binary star system with a red hypergiant. I've not seen a white dwarf before, and I've not seen a planet illuminated by two different stars that looked quite so striking eit...

I've ditched ReShade because I've never been able to keep the game stable with it (when also hotsampling). It's nice to see the universe as it's intended for a change. I'm still using SRWE to hotsample, and despite some hiccups it's coping okay. Any banding is from browser/flickr compression; the fu...

Resolution limit? (Hotsampling black screen)

Yes, SE stores as much data in VRAM as it can. It only limited by the value typed in the config or by automatically detected one. You can reduce that value to left some extra 500 MB of free VRAM for allocation of a new renederbuffers, if you planning to frequently resize SE window. That's useful in...

Resolution limit? (Hotsampling black screen)

I have noticed, this black screen thing is more likely to happen the longer I play. I can hotsample reasonably well during the first 20 minutes, but after a while it starts screwing up, and once it does I have problems even changing res to other low-res aspect ratios, never mind high resolutions.  I...

Resolution limit? (Hotsampling black screen)

Yes. Set the window to something that will fit your screen (like 1000x1000), then when the shot is composed, change the resolution to 4000x4000. The image will not be shrunk to fit your display, but if you're just using it to take a pre-composed screenshot that doesn't matter. I have used this meth...

Resolution limit? (Hotsampling black screen)

SE don't detect VRAM amount on ATI - they dropped support of this feature in drivers. You can set VideoMemorySize to your VRAM megabytes in config/main-user.cfg. But this is not related to your problem. Why do you want to rescale SE graphics at all? You always can specify any custom window resoluti...

Resolution limit? (Hotsampling black screen)

Yeah, I just spoke to someone who when using an HD 7850 2GB was able to go up to 16k res with SRWE, but since they got a 380X they can't go past 6k (nothing else changed about the system). I've not used SE with anything other than my current set up, so I can't comment on that, but driver updates and...

Resolution limit? (Hotsampling black screen)

I use SRWE to hotsample Space Engine (latest version of both). With higher resolutions, SE won't render at all, I just get a black screen. Sometimes there's just 100 pixels in it, between will render/won't render. For example, in this 2:3 shot it rendered fine at 3000x4500, but at 3100x4650 it was a...

I've posted this in the Troubleshooting thread, but worth posting it here too since a lot of ReShade users will be likely in this thread: I lost all my planet and star textures when using ReShade 3.0.5 and 3.0.6 (as of writing 3.0.6 is the most recent version). Rolling back to 3.0.3 fixed it. Worth ...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

Using ReShade with no shaders installed causes the same thing, so it's the tool itself. No one else seems to be having the same problem. Confusing.

Edit: Okay, ReShade 3.0.3 works. No idea what's going on with the newer versions, then. I'll let them know on the forum.


Sorry for the confusion.

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

amoebae , could you please attach your se.log file which is located in your SpaceEngine/system/ folder? Do you have a screenshot? Are your planets/galaxies/stars disabled? Check with F4. It seems to be ReShade - I've done a fresh install of 0.9.8.0 and without ReShade installed everything was as it...

Troubleshooting and bug reports - SpaceEngine 0.9.8.0

I'm running SE 0.9.8.0 with the latest nvidia drivers for my 980Ti (378.66) on Win7 64bit. My planets and stars are invisible (atmospheres still show up though). I thought it was outdated drivers, but I updated them today and no dice. I'm currently doing a fresh install of SE to see if that fixes th...

Screenshots for the gallery

Considering Reshade is external and doesn't show the program for what it truly is, it seems a bit disingenuous to show those kinds of screens in the gallery. My apologies - I read the first post and it didn't mention that so I didn't think - I was coming at it from a "look at what is possible&...

New Members Introduction Thread

Thought I should pop by and say hi. I had a registration at the old forum, but apart from browsing a bit I only really posted a few screenshots now and again. I'll probably end up doing the same here (I've already posted some), but I do enjoy reading what others are talking about even if I don't con...
