_The meeting________________________________________________________________
>> zerver joined!
>> jK joined!
>> hoijui joined!
hoijui: btw...
hoijui: http://springrts.com/mantis/roadmap_page.php
hoijui: made a 85.0 tag on mnatis, nad added some reports to that (as targets)
hoijui: you may want to add more
hoijui: or also not
>> Kloot joined!
jK: k seems they aren't coming

flushing of infologs
jK: progress?
<< zerver left!
hoijui: :D
hoijui: aehm...
hoijui: ouh riight...
hoijui: damn :D
hoijui: totally forgot that we decided on somethign there
hoijui: didnt do it yet
jK: np

default enable OMP (it proved to sync here)?
jK: meh too less ppl here to discuss that :<

85.0
jK: timeline something around thursday - saturday?
Kloot: weekend release sounds good
Kloot: should give enough time to find this clumping bug
>> zerver joined!
Kloot: wrt previous point, is omp used in any synced code besides qtpfs?
jK: yeah, it is used in smoothheightmap creation
Kloot: ah yeah
jK: also for checksum generation
jK: but that's ALU only
jK: but currently the speedup by omp is minimal
jK: possibly it just ups the minimal FPS a little making it run a little bit more smooth
Kloot: I'm hoping hope it will make a difference in qtpfs when large terrain changes happen, but the usage pattern is not optimal
Kloot: -hope
jK: yeah, in roam I could reach some improvement, too
jK: (ROAM does some very expensive LOD calculations on camera changes)
jK: also ppl with 1.8GHz DualCores are happy for any speedup they get >_<
Kloot: hehe
zerver: wrt OMP, I assume a huge overhead for waking up the thread pool, so profiling is very important there
hoijui: btw, should we get some more testers for QTPFS?
hoijui: it is default disabled?
Kloot: more than the one tester (me) it has had so far would be good yes
hoijui: :D
zerver: heh
hoijui: ok.. wel.. maybe make a request for it on the ofrum then
hoijui: is it a mod setting?
hoijui: or how does it work?
>> abma joined!
Kloot: yeah, it can/must be enabled by a modinfo option
abma: hi!
Kloot: hi
hoijui: ok :-)
jK: shouldn't it be better in modrules.lua?
hoijui: hmm.. should we ask ZK guys to enable it in testing versions?
Kloot: it is, by modinfo I mean CModInfo (which parses modrules.lua)
jK: ah k :)
hoijui: or what else would make more sense?
hoijui: have a custom version of ZK wiht it enabled?
Kloot: maybe a mutator
jK: in modrules modoptions work afaik
jK: yup they do
Kloot: even better
hoijui: mm sounds good
<< Kloot left!
>> Kloot joined!
abma: Kloot: about QTPFS, did you change some.. uhm version-number for path-caching?
abma: afaik i tried qtfs but then got sync errors
abma: after deleting path-cache files it worked fine...
abma: but i'm unsure, i didn't investigate...
Kloot: eh strange, qtpfs does not care about cache files generated by the default pathfinder
abma: ok, then i don't know what i did wrong
abma: error message was something like: checksum error for pathcache or so
abma: and later i got a sync error
Kloot: maybe you tried two builds and qtpfs code changed in between
abma: yep, possible
abma: ok, then its fine + forget it :)
Kloot: (I still need to add checksums for that case)
<< Kloot left!
<< hoijui left!
