Hi Chris, the new prerelease 3 doesn`t fix the OGL2 Renderpath for my ATI Radeon 9500 non Pro. The Planets are all red, only the cloudlayer are rendered okay.

Re: Saturn's atmosphere needs updating

Hi Chris, the screenshot looks fantastically, the only thing which tunes me sadly is, that I would get not to see this probably so soon, because I have an ATI 9500 and the Haze effect is not represented :cry: But, please further, the other visual effects are working. Thanks for this great programm.
