Dungeoncraft is a fantasy real time strategy game featuring multiplayer sandbox survival type gameplay, dynamic world expansion, and 3D grid based digging and building. It does allow for direct control over your units, having indirect orders only for convenience' sake. Craft weapons, raid dungeons for epic loot and mighty spells, brew potions, build or dig fortifications against the computer or your friends. It's all up to you! Play in the unique "communicationsmode", which only allows you to control your units if you supply them with orders or contact them directly with your avatar or substitutes! Requires at least opengl 3.3 capability to run; Windows XP untested, but Vista and newer will definitly work.

New in 262:

  • Minimap no longer buffers all the time when having moved, but instead only if you moved 2 minimap screens far or more
  • Added new lighting
    • Sun and other lightsources dynamically light the environment
    • Sun causes shadows
    • Torches emit light while being carried in hand
    • Magic projectiles emit light
You can also see the bump mapping in the right one:

Anyway, that should be fixed with the patch which is now released (It wasn't as of your comment).

Could you make a post for that on the forums with the kind of OS and graphics card your using? Also did a update your graphics card drivers to the latest ones available and check wether the shader files have actually been downloaded by desura?

I had this issue as well, running it a few times seems to have fixed it.
