Re: Physically Based Rendering

2) extend gl.CreateTexture with cubemap support (easy-ish), then dynamically replace the skybox by your HDR environment cubemap via Spring.SetSkyBoxTexture (currently deadweight)

Re: Physically Based Rendering

Both screenshots look correct to me. The specular cubemap (top image) basically just stores C * pow(dot(N, L), e), where C is the sun's model specular color, L the sun direction and e the specular exponent. This is going to be black for most N's. Ravaged's skybox contains green near the horizon and ...

Re: How does the Spring networking model work?

In my understanding, the game host server runs its own copy of the simulation No, the simulation(s) exist(s) only on the client side. and computes a checksum of the game state every tick Clients do this. So each player sends a checksum of his game state to the server, and the server checks if this ...

Re: How does the Spring networking model work?

The server regulates game speed based on (by default) the average CPU usage value of all clients, which means players with slower-than-average CPU's will fall further and further behind the reference time but can stay ingame with increasing order latency. Eventually (though in practice never, since ...

Re: Extremely slow on Intel i9-7920X unless WorkerThreadCount=0 or 1

No need to make reports for ancient versions, test only the most recent (104.0.1-708-gedbecc7) maintenance build. Either false sharing or excessive lock contention (or broken affinity management) could be good candidate explanations, but I expect other shenanigans since a performance degradation thi...

Re: Compiling the engine but also making it available to be used with server hosting

i don't know how to tell the compiling process to use that tag You would either have to hack the FetchSpringVersion macro in rts/build/cmake/UtilVersion.cmake, or set the core.abbrev value in your .gitconfig file to 7. Your git client (which is invoked by FetchSpringVersion) appears to be using a l...

Re: Help: Minimap and command boxes appear blank

GL version : 3.0 Mesa 17.2.8 GL vendor : X.Org GL renderer : AMD CAICOS (DRM 2.50.0 / 4.13.0-46-generic, LLVM 5.0.0) Your GPU driver is probably not configured with DDS / S3TC texture (de)compression support.

Re: Change Light map value

Is [DOES NOTHING] by design or just an oversight?
Neither, gajop's copypasta snippet visibly kills the default emission texture (as it should) for me on Core Platform.

Which map(s) are you using to test this?

Re: The differences between Develop and Maintenance

probably completely unusable
For most UI code, removal of display lists has been the only major API breakage to occur so far and is easy to adapt to.

That said, sticking with maintenance is a wiser course of action for the time being.

Re: Game doesnt start anymore with spring engine 477 or newer

Feed the startscript generated by springlobby to the engine manually (using a command prompt: "spring.exe script.txt") and check what happens.

If that also works normally, forward your issue to https://github.com/springlobby/springlobby/issues.

Re: GL 4 Progress and Help

Yes and no, Metal/Vulkan are just the result of the AAA game industry (where people *want* the ability to write what are essentially mini-drivers) pushing for more control over performance.

Hobbyist projects don't dictate tech developments.

Re: GL 4 Progress and Help

Apple dropped OpenGL like a rock after 4.1-core in favor of their Metal API and we don't exactly have the resources to implement a nice abstraction layer that can speak both dialects.

The only thing to do is wait or contribute code.
