Re: Assembling an sd7 from pool

.. assembling somehow an sd7 from your pool folder? SD7 is a LZMA compressed 7z archive, and last time I checked Spring didn't support delta filtering in the LZMA SDK as it was using an outdated SDK version. If you use 7-zip newer than 9.x it will automaticaly apply delta filtering to PCM WAVs for ...

Re: XTA repository relocation

Look like the waiting paid off, as it seems that our entire commit history is preserved, an exporter feature that was bugged in the past. Thanks for the team invitation, though, I can't promise that I'll be active, if at all. Should I find time to work on XTA again, it will be updating it for compat...

XTA repository relocation

Since I can't catch up with all relevant people at the same time, if at all. I'd like to hear from other XTA devs where should our repository move to, since Google Code is getting shut down in August this year. The simplest option is the "Export to GitHub" button. But then it's no longer SVN reposit...

Re: XTA unit restriction

Spring.exe and unitsync.dll don't have the same Spring.XXX functions available.
So it may happen that everything works fine for spring, but fails in unitsync. See unitsync.log for details, if there are any.

Re: How to handle widget selection

Knorke is spot on about many things here. Though I don't use hide commands to such extent to hide move/stop/etc. commands, only those that make no sense, like wait and repeat on resource storages. The default XTA UI has an option to select icon grid size (3x8, 4x9, 5x11) so I usualy use the 5x11 and...

Re: loadscreens

The springsettings should be available during loading time, so a PlayLoadingMusic=1/0 in springsettings.cfg could be used to control that (ie. Spring.GetConfigInt(setting)). Same for other stuff, like rotating loadscreens, tips, etc.

Re: feature request

Set your factories to "Passive" (aka click the 100% button to slow them down) as for the M makers, set your energy conversion hover ratio to lower value (in the tiny info window).

Re: Why is XTA slow (unplayable)?

S44 does SetWatchWeapon for machineguns and Explosion() for each MG bullet (and there are more than shown, actual bullets are invisible and we emit tracers) without any issues.

Re: Why is XTA slow (unplayable)?

Yes, that's the main finding. But I also found that you can double or triple the fps by disabling these widgets: - Healthbars - Ghost Radar - Ghost Site - Advanced playerslist (may be already fixed by dnw in svn version, needs testing) - RedUI Drawing - RedUI Framework - Build ETA (only relevant wh...

Some help would be nice! I was planing to write a tutorial on how to use the mission editor, but the interest wasn't big enough. In next posts I'll delve into details, but for now the basics. In order to use the mission editor, you need to copy it from XTA SVN , the one in game archive is outdated,...

Re: Engine Testing - 94.1.1-693-g5717870 (13. Jul 2013)

shots fired from units without any sort of lua tweak should collide with the target. If i understood correctly this seems like a serious bug, better revert and let them collide, even if just for a bit longer. I was refering to LaserCannon weapons who had their range increased beyond maxRange specif...

The reson I abandoned it are multiple. When BA underwent a large LUAification of it's definition files it became a problem to sync it all.

If you need working vclibs (static 1.53) for VS2010 gimme a call, I've created ones like two months ago and was able to compile develop branch, but ever since abma removed VC project files I haven't tried so. Since I didn't bother with cmake's vcproj generator.

I'll look into it, but in Spring dev build you can't spawn for Gaia via Spring.CreateUnit(...) it fails and you get nil as unitID. Same error is observed in knorke's Critter gadget. I also deliberately filtered out Gaia units and features as map features are counted as Gaia, so in order to avoid con...

Since it's all done via weaponDefs_post you can comment out the lines that modify it and look how it plays with original weaponDef values, as those where not changed.
