As far as I know, sound support is implemented in the same thread as the entire game code.
I wonder how much CPU time percentage spent on providing sound in the game?
Very little. Graphics, pathfinding and AI are the big consumers.

Re: Tested on rpi3 b+

It already runs path-finding on a separate thread, which your system should migrate to a different core as needed. It is probably not ideal, in that we should rather send paths over the network rather each host calculating every path, as we do now - but there are advantages to both methods. We could...

Re: Jammer balance

Just throwing this idea out there: Radar detector detect sensor turrets in a very long range already. What if we changed the jammer into a very long range direct fire "weapon" that simply disables a single sensor turret? Or all sensor turrets within the target area.

Re: Jammer balance

Yes, VTOL is a counter to artillery, but I'm not sure it is a sufficient one, because it takes a long time to get to VTOLs if you notice that the enemy is going artillery and you were not planning to go that route already. Ideally direct fire weapons would not be affected by the jammer. And if you g...

Re: Jammer balance

Jammer was introduced because of complaints that artillery was overpowered, and there was no good counter. The radar detector is meant as a counter to the jammer. It does not of course block the jammer completely - that would make it useless - but should allow you to pinpoint it and more easily take...

Re: Flowfield prototype

Note that the generation of the path/flow only needs to be deterministic if the same computation needs to be done on each peer. If the droid owner does the path/flow computation and then sends it to the other peers over the network, and they can follow this path/flow deterministically from a common ...

Re: Flamers!

I checked the commit log - there should not be any changes to flamer behaviour. If there is, I suppose it must be a bug. Please report it.

Re: GLM causing build failures

Both cmake and autoconf build systems should set the c++ version to c++11 already. What are the build failure messages you see?

Re: Why is warzone now such a s*t?

IIRC we upped this to 800x600 at some time. We could probably up it to 1024x768 (or 1280×720, ie 720p), since even really low-end mobile phones and the cheapest laptops you can buy support that now.

Re: Command Turret balance

Found this commit where says: Tiny balance change: The brain component can be upgraded to increase hitpoints from this component by 20%. This is mostly an example of how the new system can be used - commanders are still useless. And then change hitpoints of turrets component from 1000 to 500, now i...
