YEAH!

It runs on my PC! That's the best prove of qualitiy and stability any engine out there can have ;-)

And I get a decent frame-rate even at 4x antialiasing - actually the same than without aa, is that normal?

Well, whatever, congratulations, the never feature totally rocks!

lining geometry up problem..
« Reply #12 on: December 02, 2004, 06:29:36 AM »

Hi!

Well, I´ve got to mention it again.. GREAT WORK! Thanks! I´ve been looking for something like this for ages.

But now to my problem. I can´t get my background image lined up correctly with the simplified geometry. I gues it has something to do with the fact that I use Cinema 4D for my backgrounds. I´ve imported the "background.3ds" geometry, rendered it and saved the "background.jpg" pic for testing  matters. It probably has something to do with pixel ratio or something like that.

can anybody please help me with this..

Could you upload the files somewhere for me to test them? Also, is the geometry misplaced in both SceneEdit and the game itself? In SceneEdit you have to fill-in the game resolution so that it's able to display the geometry correctly.

lining problem
« Reply #14 on: December 02, 2004, 04:22:52 PM »

this is driving me nuts ...

I´m sure its not a wme problem, its this damned cinema renderer which is giving me the problem..

If I create a simple scene in cinema with a camera (focal length : 34,723     ;   FOV 54,803) export the mesh  as a 3ds file, then change the camera to focal length : 26,132 and FOV : 69,118 , render the image and save it as a jpg, its roughly in line with the geometry in the editor and the game, although twisted and the size is also not perfect.

Well, I´ve figured out that 34,723 : 26,132 comes out to be the magical 1,333 pixel ratio..

I´ve also tried leaving the cam as it is and altering the "render stettings (pixel) to 1: 1,333 but that doesn´t do it.

I´ve mailed you the files to wme@dead-code.org, they´re not very big ;-)

perhaps you could help me along with this..
thanks,
Oli
