The new feature of that the TIS needs manually adjusting the depth of field, is a real game changer. The all-seeing eye of God that TIS was before, is gone. Great feature, making things more difficult at times!

Hotpatch released, bringing SBP to version 4.004.

P.S. Announcement ^ withdrawn, an even newer version is about to be released any day this week.

On beefy systems, this is what the new bloom effects can do:

Neal,

your notebook has the same CPU like mine, but a slightly more capable graphics card, since mine is not designed to be a gaming notebook. However, you may want to wait with getting 4.0 until they have implemented the new terrain engine later this year - hopefully - and then see the feedback what it will do to frames. And that frames will suffer a drop from this new smoothness, I take for granted. If it is too much to handle, it might be better to stick with an older version, say 3.x .



Their internal testings are inconsistent, some systems that are strong on the paper do not do much better than weaker configurations they have tested.

I assume that SBP 4 - as it is right now, v4.004 -, can be run on your/my notebook if reducing graphics to minimum. (However, I run it on a PC with a weaker CPU, but a stronger gfx card.)
