In this release we addressed many issues that have been reported by customers in the past. Everyone following our Discord channel will know that many users did have problems installing the requirements for Games from Space, like the Visual C++ Redistributable etc.
In version 1.12 we added a new feature which we call 'Engine Test'. This feature is a multistep process that checks every single component of Games from Space and tells you if everything is fine, i.e.:
- Your AV program deletes the miner --> Engine Test will restore it
- Your drivers seem to be outdated or not working --> Engine Test will tell you to fix your drivers ;)
- AMD user and you didn't enable compute mode --> Engine Test will tell you how to fix it
- Stop the train in GTA5 --> Engine Test will do it
The best part is that every single step that fails will include a quick fix on the right.
Also the Engine Test includes a benchmark, so you can compare how your Engine runs to others.
We hope that the Engine Test will help new users to get into mining much faster.
