IMPORTANT!!! If you have NVidia graphics card, you should know that latest NVidia drivers are incompatible with this version of SpaceEngine. You will have many random glitches with them. The latest compatible driver version is 337.xxx. You can try this fix to restore compatibility, but this is not guaranteed.

I'm really hoping a Linux/Mac version comes sometime soon. I realize it's hard, but that doesn't mean I can't hope for one, right?
Can somebody change the
RED warning on this page, to read "This version of SpaceEngine is incompatible with the latest version of nvidia drivers", rather than the opposite please? It only makes sense taking into account the statement from nvidia about incorrect use of shader definitions by SE. Also, I noticed the donations have not increased for the past month or so. Don't you think it may have something to do with the fact people can't even try it now? New version is really really needed.
The patch for the latest Nvidia drivers is really needed asap. I couldn't keep the old ones installed, as Elite Dangerous and WoT requires new ones, so I'm stuck with SE not working for the past month now.
I'll hang on for a *NIX (Linux/Mac/UNIX/BSD) compatible version rather than suffer Microsoft's shoddy OS's, you may have time to fritter away dealing with Windows nonsense but I don't. However it won't take long for me to completely forget this project exists.
For those who ask about Linux and Mac, it needs money it ain't easy. Be patient until they reach much money, donate, for the project to continue.
I'm not going to use my account but maybe I might create another account. It depends how it goes.
Maybe...... Just maybe. I don't like my user name TheAmazingFriendlyJonatha.
You need to update your graphics drivers. Where you go to do this depends on what brand your graphics card is. And if you have a very old card, then it may be impossible for you to update to OGL 3.0.
Where I can UpDate OpenGL 2.1, to OpenGL 3.0?
