Re: VertexArray

Well, yesterday I told myself I ought to update Kernel Panic to the Spring 106 that was announced on the frontpage of https://springrts.com a couple months ago. Since then, I've caught up on reading enough forum and discord threads to gather that the situation about engine releases, branches and for...

VertexArray

Anybody got an example widget or gadget using VertexArray ? I have no idea what to write to replace my DisplayList.

I searched through the codebase of ZK, S44, BAR and found absolutely none.

Re: Feesablity of Spring as a engine for original games

is capable of producing RTS Games that don't perfectly fit into the Sci-Fi mould or is it capable of being used to branch into other genres like fantasy? It doesn't support smooth mesh deformation, that makes it more suited to Sci-Fi than fantasy. is it acceptable to use the forums to assemble a te...

Re: help with customPlayerKeys

If it's like custom team options, you don't need the [customPlayerKeys] {}
In the script, declare them like regular player options.

Well, they need to be inside the [PLAYERX] {} though!

Re: help with customPlayerKeys

Yes!

Though I mostly use customTeamKeys, and I don't remember well but maybe there was an issue with customPlayerKeys not being transmitted.

Re: Where are all the games at?

i meant like all the games Many old Spring games are sadly not playable anymore, because the engine changed and the games were not updated. And even if you found those old engines, you couldn't use them because the infrastructure changed. And porting old games to newer engine is hard even for exper...

Re: Kernel Panic 4.9

It annoys me how compulsory Github has become, I don't like that kind of centralised monoculture.
And if I were to move KP to some sort of repository, I would first want to recreate an history of past versions.
Say, does rapid support any git repo, or only github?

Kernel Panic 4.9

Spring 105 was released half a year ago, and broke Kernel Panic gadgets and widgets. springfiles.com went down a year or a month ago, and broke Kernel Panic download links. So a new release of Kernel Panic was needed! Kernel Panic 4.9 out! Complete Installer (Windows) Zipped Mod, Maps, and Launcher ...

Re: I am politely asking will Lua widgets break with future engine updates because I would like to know

In theory, a mitigation layer could be created - in lua. That's usually what I do, in the hope that newer KP can also be run under older engines. Though, since I don't really test that, not sure how well that works. But in practicality most of those things broke are not used/developed on anymore an...

Re: I am politely asking will Lua widgets break with future engine updates because I would like to know

To be honest, the version 105 whose changelog only says: -- 105.0 -------------------------------------------------------- - special maintenance release: contains only bugfixes introduced some entirely unnecessary breaking changes of Lua, such as the switching of the 7th and 8th argument of Spring.G...

Before 105, GetTeamLuaAI returned "" for teams with no LuaAI In 105, GetTeamLuaAI returns something that doesn't even has a type for teams with no LuaAI Not "", not even nil, but some weird thingy lua has trouble to handle. Thankfully, it appears to be falsy and considered ~= fro...

Re: Next engine features poll

1) Kernel Panic (playerbase: 0) 2) I would prioritize preserving backward compatibility over performance advantages. 3) The engine is already open source. So, if anyone wanted extra performance in exchange of more complex code, it was always possible, by writing C++ in the engine instead of Lua gadg...

Re: bitcoin in 2021

I'm sad that every time I see bitcoin or other crypto-money mentioned, people seem to only talk about investment, and never about using it as an actual money, for, you know, exchange of goods or services.

Yes, the fake zwzsg is still there.
Did you restart the bridge, or the the server?
Maybe an actual someone stole my nick and hangs on it? I wouldn't see why though.

Anyway, I made a new alias, hopefully the old one will some day time out.
