  • There was a bug in the Penumbra beta with full screen full dome view.


    You can download this update to fix the issue.

    The problem was the z-buffer for the dome preview was larger than the screen for a moment when the full-screen transiztion occurs.

    If the frame renders right at that moment it will crash. This happens almost without fail on many graphics cards.


    It is fixed this ther release below.
