Oolite test release 1.74.1 is now available from GURPO. This is a bug-fix update to 1.74.

Changes between Oolite 1.74 and Oolite 1.74.1:
  • Scripts can once again award and check for trumbles, and the standard trumble mission once again works. (Limitation: scripts cannot increase the number of trumbles by awarding more. This will be fixed in 1.75.)
  • The nova mission once again awards the appropriate reward on a successful outcome.
  • No more “Witchspace engine malfunction” message when entering a post-nova system.
  • When docked at a secondary station, the default selection on the game menu screen is “Game Options” rather than “Begin New Game”.
  • Fixed annoying audio latency when playing first sound under Mac OS X.
  • Fixed several JavaScript interface bugs that could cause a faulty script to halt without any error message.
  • Adjusted graphics settings: shader mode is now restricted to Simple for Intel GMA 950 and ATI Radeon R300 GPU families, and some other tweaks.
  • Fixed a material synthesis bug where illumination_modulate_color was ignored when using emission_and_illumination_map in shader mode (material test suite test case 7).
  • Possible fix for random freezes when using speech synthesis in Windows.
  • Various minor bug fixes and tweaks.
New JavaScript methods:
  • vector3D.fromCoordinateSystem()
  • vector3D.toCoordinateSystem()

Just downloaded and installed 1.74.1... is there any change in the attenuation of the laser hit effect?

From the usual place: https://developer.berlios.de/project/sh ... up_id=3577
There is no Windows installer specific to the 64-bit versions of the OS. You will have to use the standard 32-bit one.

But won't that mean that the game can't make use of my 16GB RAM? :(

I'm afraid that will have to be the case.

Hm ... how complicated would the issue be to produce a 64bit Win version? What would be needed for that?

You will need a 64-bit compiler. Google mingw-w64 for more details. I can't give you more information because I do not have a 64-bit system to test it and verify feasibility of building it. I am also not aware of what kind of support ObjC has on this version of mingw.
