Sample Pictures


Shadows have been disabled by the official Tridef profile, even though they have not been turned off in the game. I have attached an in-game screenshot playing the game in 2D with shadows to show the difference. Sparks rendering at screen depth are a little annoying, but the game is completely playable.
