Re: Tree Problems

this guy fixed it by turning off 3d Trees http://springrts.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=11&t=27270&p=507176&hilit=+tree+drawer+#p507176 The only difference is that that guy had a GeForce 9500, while SloshedEvilOven has Intel GMA 965/963, which IIRC is no longer supported, generally Intel g...

Re: Engine Testing - 3. Dec 2012 (91.0.1-566-g3bf8eb3)

Will this: http://springrts.com/mantis/view.php?id=3356 end up being fixed or are the new larger automatically generated colvols here to stay? BA uses a gadget for CV scaling. It seems that LUA unit defs have a bug/new feature in dev build, so that if you don't supply the model extension in objectn...

Re: broken myGravity tag?

You should modify that tag in unison with weaponVelocity, as too slow projectiles can't reach max range with high gravity, making you think that the weapon is broken.

Also, average map gravity is 100-120 when looked from lobby, but that's actually 0.1-0.12 in engine.

Re: How to turn a unit off with bos?

Edit the unitdef to have onoffable=0; actvatewhenbuild=1; and it will be fine, no extra buttons, and the ACTIVATION will be set according to TechLost and TechGranted calls. The unit script is OK, but I'd remove some redundant code . It could be that the gadget doesn't call those functions when a uni...

Re: Beamlasers need to be fixed

The problem arises from aiming being done on every slow update, thus you can't adjust turret heading towards target more often than that. While move orders to units can be given at any game frame, thus unit can begin turning right after it locked onto a target in the same game frame. So the next 15/...

Re: Brainstorm - How to mitigate the effect of cheap scout s

There is an interesting way to counter both scout spam and reduce CPU usage at the same time. It's called unit-unit collision damage. I first tried it in XTA, the idea was to have cannon shell explosion impulse crash small units into another if traveling in groups, and take damage from mutual crashi...

Re: BA relevant info about Spring 89

The sound bug is a matter of a simple weaponDefs_post.lua, I've put one into BAR, but it seems that no dev looked at it or copied it to BA. You need to set all beam lasers to have soundTrigger=1, soundhitdry="", soundhitwet="", in order to replicate Spring <=88.0 sound behaviour.

The wake.tga is present in spring/base/spring/bitmaps.sdz so you don't need to add it to your project.

Re: Engine Testing - 29. May 2012 (88.0.1-264-g89ee3b2)

Dunno if someone mantised it, but QTPFS still fails at units getting stuck in factory. It happens only when unit's footprint is equal (I assume and larger than, but couldn't test it due to game design) to factory construction lane size and more often if the factory was built on rough terrain (that h...

More specifically, SET MAX_SPEED from cob side only takes effect for one frame. After that they're free to move again. To see: grab spring1944.net/files/Build/S44v159_PreMorgenroteTRI.sdz and any map, plug it into 88+. /cheat /give germg42 /give 10 gerhqengineer. From my experience it takes effect ...

Re: SetUnitLineage call in Game spawn lua of BOTA mod

When in doubt look into SVN. XTA 9.71 has an outdated AreaOfEffect widget, but latest beta doesn't (at least I think it's fixed, as I have a local copy since some other less maintained games might have problems with this as well)
