Re: Reintegrating DirectX - Critiques, Issues, and ??

If there is a way to check what the hardware can handle you can always check the users hardware capabilities at first runtime and save it to the config file. Internally you woulc probably want to clump some features together in various blocks of more advanced features and only allow the calls if co...

Too be clear, it was a comment about the end result and process, not so much a reflection about Qt.

Re: Reintegrating DirectX - Critiques, Issues, and ??

If it ends up being like adding Qt into the game then so be. Good goal and idea, just didn't work out. So we shall see how things go. Qt ending up adding many kludges into the system, if directx is to be added I want this to be done using as much refactoring as reasonable. So with the debate mostly...

Re: Models by Jorzi (AR)

Also, I would like to see it animated but I'm not quite sure how to do that. Maybe I could use berg's texture animation technique? I think Berg has tried this type of thing, the current issue is that piggy backing the rotor animation where the vtol jet animation is done causes the rotors to disappe...

His topic was locked so there must have been something that went on? The topic being locked has nothing to do with why he left, "goodbye" "i quit" etc topics tend to get locked as they tend to produce a lot of unproductive noise. but this kind of behavior is usually associated with the feeling that...

Re: Updating Old Apps? WZCK, Pie Slicer, et al.

Problem is, you're not just rendering it, you're also editing and selecting the geometry and that's probably what takes up all the cpu resources. Having seen how many things are done the brute force way in Wz I have a good appreciation for the capabilities of modern processors. :lol2: That being sa...

Re: Updating Old Apps? WZCK, Pie Slicer, et al.

I might have to finish the DirectX integration sooner than planned because once I got the cull-face calculations working properly, suddenly my rendering rate took a nosedive. I'm barely getting 5fps out of that. Ouch, sounds like there's funny business going on. The models are ridiculously low poly...

I think we should implement that, though it might require some thought about how to make it look right for all muzzle flash graphics.

Re: New screenshots for the home page?

will WZ use the new AA tricks that are out or stick with FSAA? Think its RSAA or some such.. not sure which cards have it. I know my geforce 260 doesn't so its fairly recent No, I don't see Wz supporting deferred rendering or post processing in the future(which the new techniques require.) Making t...
