Showing turn directions

As some of you may know, I'm heavily redoing the way meshes are created and textured in the game in order to remove differences between the editor and player (I intend to merge them into a single .exe at some point so you can playtest directly in the editor mode) and to allow more objects respond to...

Re: Rules, License, and Getting Started

I am not sure about licencing but could we port the game to BlitzMax with MiniB3D (BlitzMax NG doesn't have BB to BMX converter)? The only problem I see so far are the WA Libraries.

Re: WA Editor Updates, Ideas & Suggestion Thread

GPU switch doesn't really seem useful because of D3D8 age, modern GPUs don't support it anyway (I have to use DLLs from dgVoodoo to wrap it to DX11). Given the problem with JPG artefacts I'd consider loading them in mode 1. I've already done enough experiments with file extensions to understand the ...

Re: WA Editor Updates, Ideas & Suggestion Thread

There is one solution which is to use masked DDS textures but I have no idea how to use the current version on nVidia's plugin to export them. EDIT: I think a workaround would be to load the texture, extract the pixels with alpha = 1 and render that in mode 4 then render the target texture on top of...

Re: WA Editor Updates, Ideas & Suggestion Thread

You seem to have replied when I was editing the post. Sadly my investigation was faulty because the texture of LeafTree1 I used for testing has black background so two things were merged together. As of now I only know it is possible to solve the problem but I don't know how exactly.

Re: WA Editor Updates, Ideas & Suggestion Thread

The thing is Blitz3D isn't capable of correctly assigning surface order for overlapping alpha surfaces and that's a feature, not a bug (done to prevent different behaviour on different GPUs). However, that order is applied when one copies an entity so the solution is to create a copy of an entity an...

Re: WA Editor Updates, Ideas & Suggestion Thread

I get the error with vanilla Tree1 so no model, the PNG is attached. When it comes to features, when I have to specify file paths in the editor (models, textures etc.) I'd love to be able to edit the one already there instead of retyping everything.

Re: WA Editor Updates, Ideas & Suggestion Thread

Well, the result is different when the editor is opened (old code applies textures with no masks) and when a new entity is placed or in the player. Below are the results with 3.04 in the player, actually no method works correctly for PNGs. I've also tried adding TGA support (Blitz supports it and it...

This was a test of non-MS method (PNG for a custom model) and it failed but it uses the same code as the custom texture (EDIT: tested it and it has the same problem), I'll try with some different models, it may have something to do with DirectX8 in Win10 so WndDx debugging should be done.

Re: WA Editor Updates, Ideas & Suggestion Thread

Thanks, works perfectly!

As for quality of life improvements, FlipBridges and Gates could be rendered closed/open in the editor.

EDIT: Well, almost perfectly, you see, there's something wrong with alpha channel. I have no idea why the trunk of my bush is rendered in front of the leaves.

There's a loop starting at line 911: If j2=0 Or j2=LevelDetail Or i2=0 Or i2=LevelDetail If i2=0 uoverlap#=.002 Else If i2=LevelDetail uoverlap#=-....

Re: WA Editor Updates, Ideas & Suggestion Thread

Do you want Wraiths, Cannons, Fireflowers, ZapBots, UFOs shoot all types of magic? I don't think Pop, Flash and Blink would be of much use though. Floing and Grow would work but they would have to be slightly altered so a tile is targeted (think Grow Wraiths). As for other features I'll dig into th...

Re: Change music and give magic to player commands!

As the music file path is exposed it seems possible to finally add custom music support, the question is how to handle that with CMD14 and WLV file format.

Re: Pawelec's Custom Lair is online!

The problem with the Mayan set is I find the quality of replacements made in a hurry not acceptable, they are nowhere close to hand-painted textures. I need to find a way to make them both looking good and quick to make.

It is not that I was pirating something intentionally, the thing is it is quite unclear what can be done with Unity3D assets after you buy and what you can not.

Oh, that is a serious issue. The things of a very uncertain licensing status are: - AoEO trees, - Mayan Temple textures and assets, - Crazy Mushrooms. AoEO trees were going to get a hand-made-from-scratch remake anyway because their models are badly optimised and texture mapping choices are often we...
