Hello I have installed everything as per guide then i tried to reinstall it after fixing the permissions on the folder (was in program files).
I use the steam version only difference is i used the original x3ap.exe file and copied it over to the downloads folder of your installation.
Everything looks like its working, i have few questions though.
My pc specs:
its a laptop Acer V17 nitro +- 5 years old
Other games are running as i would expect them to this is kinda weird altough still its modded so i understand its gonna get a perf hit anyway but i didnt expect this much
That i believe says it all as per what my pc specs are regarding to the question.
when i use SETA and set it to vanillas 1000 it stutters af if i down it to 600 its even moving faster actually and less erroneously (on 1500 i tested a play within 10 mins i had 2 crashed ships trying to undock and one docked shieldless got wrecked too (probably by AI havent seen that one or the station mount glitches in and out if its stuttering alot and perhaps there was some collision with it during that.
Is there anything i can do to resolve that (already set the game to lowest quality to improve performance as much as possible. Currently set to 600 kinda works im kinda ok with that but of course if there is a way how to make it work better im all ears.
note, in vanilla this does not happen to me (i did notice that if in vanilla you set it to 1000 its kinda ok until late game when the game slows down (played like 3-4 years ago no perf patch for missions back then
) but the autopilots obliberate half of your ships anyway once the stutter becomes real.
Only first time i ever played the game as Humble Merchant start i saw that the rings are gone and good job then.
However i believe after few jumps the rings reappeared altough the new graphics for the portal vortex is overlapping it so i guess the mod is kinda there but it kinda stopped doing what its supposed to do. Started 2 games since then never sav ringless gates anymore all of them have these rings now.
Then is it a bad idea to have smart and mars active? i mean i can switch off/on those two any time as i understand but which is better what has more features, and if both are kinda the same why are there both of them
Well i will chip in with any additional comments every now and then.
OH and i tested the ring its not transparent *hull polarazing device destroyed* xDDD
Edit1: trying to reinstall the whole thing being diligent about the permissions before i do any mod shit.
Edit2: installing mods all looks ok this time i copied the whole game to C:/X3AP and set permissions for currently used user to all. also on the groups. all looks ok so far i hadnt had an error like last time (about the perms from the plugin manager only though... i dont know maybe it will make a difference... we will see shortly i will update this again.
Edit3: unless it fixes itself somehow this will be the final one before your answer, reinstalled the game from scratch as per guide installed mods etc. started up as terran defender (want to do storyline this time) first things first the loadup of all the scripts was kinda faster im happy about that, however right from the start my audio went dipshit crazy with a white noise
i guess it glitched out when loading scripts. nevertheless setted up hotkeys etc. turned around and i see rings everywhere
neptune system tried to jump through a gate to another sector it still had rings too kinda feels like the ring mod is somehow not working for me?
