I have not used Blender for a while now and upgraded my PC since I last used it. I went on the Blender site and noticed the new 2.58 version. I doanloaded it, realised it looked way different from the previous version, un-installed it and downloaded the older 2.48 version.
However, none of the older versions seem stable, they are all buggy now for some reason :(.
So, it looks like I may need to consider 2.58. Are there any videos, explenations or reference points which go through the differences between the 2.4x and 2.5x range? This new version seems very different and I am struggling to understand where anything is any more.
Also, Is there an easy way to see if GLSL works on your PC? I was pretty sure you used to just select GLSL from the drop down ‘game’ menu, and if GLSL did not work on your PC it would tell you at that point. But, I have a laptop, which although is a good, new laptop, I didn’t think GLSL would work, but it allows you to select it, but when I try to do Texture Splatting, it doesn’t seem to work, so I dont think my laptop works with GLSL? I just get all three layers on top of each other (eg grass, stencil and dirt all combined).
