Re: What happened to these cool features from retail?
So commercial games don't do layered post-processing? How cool it would be if FSO had a graphic feature no other game has?

Very very cool!! So when are you going to implement this, iVoid? Can't wait!

Oh come on, he wasn't demanding they implement anything. He just misunderstood The E and was getting excited about SCP. :rolleyes:

There are totally times when such sarcasm is warranted, but this wasn't one of them.

Re: What happened to these cool features from retail?
These forums seem to be pretty friendly most of the times, I don't see a lot of flamers or trolls here, but I guess people are just people... There is always some poison to spit, and if not in the open then it's underneath the surface, hidden on things like sarcasm.

I don't code for a living, I only had 3 curricular units about programming on college and have an interest on the subject. Trying to contribute to FSO and playing around with shaders is something that I thought would be fun to do while learning a bit more about coding. I don't know that much and you won't ever see me acting like a bigshot. I might contribute with something someday IF I ever feel like it, I don't need to prove nothing.

Re: What happened to these cool features from retail?
Wait, you've got coding experience? SCP could always use a coder, especially a graphics-oriented one. Great rewards and respect await those who dare to delve into arcane depths of FSO codebase and perform their coding rites in there. :)

Sorry, I'm portuguese and english isn't my native language so I'm not sure if I explained myself correctly. I don't have professional experience in programming, when I said "curricular units" I was unsure about the right word to use, I think the right word is "subjects", as part of my college course.

Perhaps you misunderstand his response. :)  We don't require SCP members to have professional programming experience.  In fact, most members of the SCP joined without (or before) any professional experience.  Just amateur experience is sufficient.

Re: What happened to these cool features from retail?
More importantly, you don't need to be a SCP member to access the code, and although only SCP members have commit access, you can very well do a code patch on your side from the publicly available trunk and then ask for SCP members to review it and, if it is good, commit it.
People are stupid, therefore anything popular is at best suspicious.

Awesome! I don't mean to hijack the thread so I'll just stop by the IIRC channel sometime.
