UPDATE

Hello,
I've updated the opt limit hook.

I've increased the engine glow count limit per opt. The limit was 16. It is now 255.
When a mesh is hidden, its engine glows are also hidden.

That's brilliant! That should help a lot with something I was working on.

@Master Qui-Gon you might be interested in this too :)

Holy smokes, this is fantastic!

Any chance you'll be able to increase the number of rotating turrets, too? eh? eh?

That's on my wish list too Vince. :D But as RandomS. indicated the RotaryGunTurret type meshes are limited to a fixed array of 16. Each of the 16 meshes can have at most a pair of Laser HPs that alternate in a firing sequence. My other wish is the ability to have more than three different laser/weapon type systems. i.e. 282, 283, 284, 285, 289, 290, 303, 304, 305, 307, & other projectiles. :D

On windows 7 hook_opt_limit.dll doesn't work.

Crash.

As if the .dll did not load

This is working like it should except in the Tech Globe. You can still see the hidden glows.

In-Flight it is perfect.

OK thank you.
It gives me problems with ddraw 2.0, apparently.
