Re: Thread pooling?

Well! I suppose it might be easier to rewrite part of the engine using Rust instead. Sad.

Thread pooling?

I've got an idea stuck in my head that would improve the performance on single-board computers (SBCs) and other computers with unified memory architectures. The basic idea is that every calculation based on a similar math function in a loop be given its own thread. That way the code cache of each co...

Re: vs compile warnings causing errors?

It's not just VS. GCC 7.3 warns that GCC 7.1 had a change in the vector normal_iterator() that is putting a warning on wzstring.

GLM causing build failures

Greetings!

Does someone here know how to specify the C++ version used by the build? GLM's own test code fails to build under C++14 but builds under C++11. I'm building on an ARM7-based octa-core computer (ODroid XU4) using GCC version 7.3.0 on an Ubuntu Kernel build of Armbian Linux.

Re: No Text on Menus?

Since it seems to be a problem with numerous drivers anyway, would it be possible to pre-render the text onto a the background texture with the alpha blending? The current effect just stretches the background rectangle and then renders the text over it. Maybe it's a z-fighting issue.

Re: Warzone 2100 on а new engine?

@sergey231 It's highly unlikely that an Android machine would use the apple menu in the upper-left corner. It's a Mac. @Thread Using some middleware to do the graphics rendering such as OpenSceneGraph might assist the development but it would still be a lot of work. The only advantage of using Unity...

Re: Mission Error: Indestructible Transport Causes Mission F

This sounds like a bug in 3.2.1 where if you destroy the landing site of without letting the transport land once, it stays on the map forever. It should have been fixed in 3.2.2+.

Re: A terrible idea that involves SQL.

Ah. There are json-specific query languages that might be more appropriate in this case, which we could possibly support natively from the scripting API, like jq (through libjq) or jsoniq. Although I've never used any of them (except mongodb, which I would not recommend). I agree. MongoDB is quite ...

Building from source, I got 3.2.3 to work via the GL4ES shim... ...except for the invisible menu text. I couldn't test the main game engine under Debian Jessie.

GLES2+ and multithreading?

Hello all, I've been playing Warzone 2100 for years now and love 3.2.1 with a passion. Anything newer requires a better Linux box than mine uses since the shader model is newer than my graphics drivers support. (Yes, it's a Core2 Duo with the cheapo Intel graphics core.) I've heard that OpenGL ES 2 ...
