Re: Drawing from Lua could be better in Spring-106

I am aware of the immediate ^^ downside of the approach and I understand your doubts about it scaling well: Replacing display lists with draw calls cannot improve performace. But this is not about improving performance. This is about dragging the engine kicking and screaming into the future. Display...

Re: Drawing from Lua could be better in Spring-106

Test host running spring-develop and BA-106 is up.
Lots of UI still missing, but it is playable.

Performance looks good: I get 1600 FPS at game start.

Re: Drawing from Lua could be better in Spring-106

I agree that addon compatibility between Spring-106 and Spring-bar would be a good thing. You should talk to the maintainers of spring-bar about this. Spring.Draw should be easy to merge into the engine fork as it is not very tightly coupled to the OpenGL wrappers of the engine. Be warned that I do ...

Re: Drawing from Lua could be better in Spring-106

Pull request is here https://github.com/spring/spring/pull/581 . I settled for Spring.Draw.Lines, Spring.Draw.Triangle, Spring.Draw.Rectangle. Encountering several BA widgets that did their own bevels and radii each, Spring.Draw.Rectangle has parameters for that when drawing to screen. Also borders ...

Drawing from Lua could be better in Spring-106

In spring-105 we used the fixed function pipeline of OpenGL more or less directly: function draw() gl.Color(1,0,0,1) gl.Vertex(0, 0, 0) gl.Vertex(1, 0, 0) gl.Vertex(1, 1, 0) gl.Vertex(0, 1, 0) end gl.BeginEnd(GL.QUADS, draw) That was very flexible, because you could do anything with OpenGL from Lua....

Re: commanders

Ah I remember com control - I remember thinking what a horrid idea it was, but now I finally understand where it was coming from yay! I do wonder though - is there something like that we could try? Just a few ideas: - slow control: one second pause between commands - laggy control: each command is ...

I have never ban anyone but you I can confirm that you are very conservative concerning bans. I think Buxton (http://replays.springrts.com/player/986198/) can confirm that, too.

Re: Engine bug or mod bug?

Nah. My pull request was too ugly. But I think I was able to show why it was broken.
Rtri wrote up a real fix.

There will be no base safe without aa in spring-104.

Re: Engine bug or mod bug?

I fixed the transport failing to load: https://github.com/spring/spring/pull/328 The problem is that the transport starts to hover when it is near its target. Hovering is random, so it might never reach it for pickup. In addition, hovering was broken. Hovering units drift to the bottom right, which ...

Re: commanders

Isn't (or wasn't?) there a "no commander - no control" modoption for games with absolutely no one combombing or cannibalizing the commander for metal? It prevents players who do not have at least one commander from issuing commands. But I can't find it now. Was it dropped? Or did I see it ...

Re: commanders

The first lessons include: - You build a LLT against scoutrape. - You build two LLTs against a walking commander. The unexperienced player can lose some games before learning them. The stakes in the commander team deathmatch in DSD's south are high. That is why I consider it so much fun. I do not th...

I'd like to ask you to give permission to using a copy of the current TrueSkill database on SLDB,
so the players can play it without the initial flaw of random balance.
AFAIK you are the only BA dev, Floris.
Can you please answer this?

Forking BA

There has been some discussions about the recent releases of Balanced Annihilation. Some people, including me, are unhappy with the new direction the game is taking. It has become clear during this discussions, that to preserve the game I am addicted to, it needs to be forked. There is nothing perso...

Re: Balance Committee

can non committee members submit balance requests? Of course. For a balance request you will need to make a forum thread which will then be used for open discussion and voting on the topic. But as the committee is still in the planning phase and has no authority to make changes to the game yet, it ...
