Re: Error emerge on gentoo

Edit: turns out there's a compile problem with springlobby too, class wxDir has no member Close, wxGTK 2.9.4.1-r1, it builds with 3.0, but docs call for 2.9+ Here's an ebuild that worked for me for the latest springlobby, didn't run it but it did build, I had to eselect wxwidgets to 3.0 before thoug...

Re: Question wrt. springlobby github comment

Underwhelming drawing of reusable components architecture, allowing the ecosystem to grow, bringing differences of opinion regarding direction together by allowing the use of a core of libraries for multiple types of lobbies, using multiple servers/protocol versions. A core of in memory data structu...

Re: WIP - unnamed lobby

To clarify things: implementing rapid downloads, using your documentation, following the link at https://springrts.com/wiki/Rapid leads to reading a sdp binary file then grabbing md5-named files over http (pipelined, yes, but individually) - and I did just what it said there. It's not my fault that ...

Re: WIP - unnamed lobby

Not even with http pipelining and spdy put together would separately archived files needing separate sequential requests and separate fwrites and md5 checks be faster than one single archive containing multiple files, over one connection with one md5 hash, be it the same server. Maybe a daily pool s...

Right, but for first time users, an archive is much needed.

Re: WIP - unnamed lobby

I'm not sure who I'm supposed to ask, so I'll post here and hopefully someone knows the answer. When new players download a game (they don't have any files yet), the lobby queries the available download systems. In the event that a full archive is not found (on upq/plasma), then rapid is queried and...

Re: Complex cliff geometry - can this be mapped?

This is good news, I need to tinker some more with the blender python functionality, I think shapes like that can be 100% procedural (though cpu intensive) starting with just a few parameters.

Re: Complex cliff geometry - can this be mapped?

First of all, thanks for all the replies, 2nd... the persistent money talk kind bothers me, especially since it's all off topic.. Back to the main conversation: can it be faked with transparent heightmap + mesh model right 'underneath' the invisible heightmap in such a way that units are so close to...

Complex cliff geometry - can this be mapped?

I've been playing with Blender's rock/cliff generation capabilities, and I'm wondering if there's a way to import something like this into Spring, http://i.imgur.com/OHB91yc.png http://i.imgur.com/MRqyMN1.png http://i.imgur.com/5iKb75j.png Can the grey vertical part be made to work with the heightma...

I suppose the easiest way to test the concept would be to add a delay to the execution of move commands, directly proportional to the distance from the main base, it doesn't sound fun though...

Re: Spring 99.0 released!

The "problem" is that news sites (phoronix comes to mind) picked this up, and the audience there is biased towards linux gaming, more than development.

Re: gathering feedback about people who leave spring ecossystem

Besides the obvious lack of constructive criticism, I am curious as to why you have chosen to dedicate time to write such long posts, what you have to gain from it personally and why you are not doing the same critique for the other thousands of free games available online - you have a great eye for...
