Re: A celebration of Freespace
You do know that HDR stands for high dynamic range? :nervous:

If HDRish were dynamic, it wouldn't be hdrISH, it would be HDR. :p And I guess it would require shader support to be true HDR anyway.
There are three things that last forever: Abort, Retry, Fail - and the greatest of these is Fail.

Re: A celebration of Freespace
no **** sherlock.
Hell if hdr weren't dynamic, it'd still be hdr, only fake. I'm not using hdrish as a literal term for hdr. When i mention hdrish, i'm talking about that famous and coveted smartshader for ati cards. So saying if hdrish would be dynamic that'd be one complete kickass smartshader. After this i'm starting to find hdrish sort of blah these days. It looks great in fs, except when you're in a node, node missions + hdrish equals something close to almost unplayable, but playable with much blinding brilliant light too make it difficult to see, other than that hdrish makes node missions look completely awesome. Yeah the whole blah thing for hdrish comes from the fact that smartshaders are sort of being phased out by ati, nvidia users can't do smartshaders, hdrish can cause some aspects of some games to be unplayable because some parts of a game may look great with it but it could be that moment when all that brilliant light makes it difficult to see and disseminate. After that, hdrish-lite was interesting when i used it, but i found it to be too weak. An  hdrish-medium would have been perfect. After that, stuff like hdrish is smartshader only stuff, too bad we can't really implement into the game itself, a move like that if it were possible i can imagine would save time on the bloom being added for the next scp release. Hdrish is not longer exciting nor coveted. Plus why buy an ati high end card that just as fast as the nvidia midrange cards right now? One reason for prompting me to say goodbye to hdrish because pretty much anything lower than an x1900 isn't really worth the hype as it becomes a cost to performance ratio, a 7600gt at the time i bought was cheaper than an x1800 and outperformed it. And this is from a midrange card from nvidia. The x1xxx series is nice, but the geforce 7s are a better selection to price to performance ratio compared to ati's. Ati's midrange card the x1600 just amazed me how bad it was compared to nvidias midrange card the 7600gt. Idk, someone should make an medium version of hdrish, and see if that fairs better when you're playing in a node mission (if you can't play the game all that good in certain areas because of hdrish, hdrish gets reduced to only being good for taking screenshots of your game to make it look all pretty, which negates the reason for using  hdrish to enhance your game experience and make the game look cool while playing). Umm, a good mission to try with hdrish is the last mission of transcend (i should have taken a screenshot of it at the time). Playing transcend's last mission with hdrish is an experience all in itself, try it, you might see what i mean on hdrish in node levels.
Every pilot's goal is to rise up in the ranks and go beyond their purpose to a place of command on a very big ship. Like the colossus; to baseball bat everyone.

It USED to be a tag that shrank the image until you clicked on it, saving bandwidth for 56kers. It doesn't seem to work anymore.

Apparently, manual resize doesn't work either.  It's listed as a BBCode tag, though... :confused:

Don't worry, Yukkikaze will chase Takashi away!!!  :nod:





Thanks to Nuke for allowing dissection of his mod (so I can try to understand the inner workings of the NEW SCP.
I finally got a ship in the latest build.

Let's dance!  :shaking: :nervous: ::) :shaking: :nervous: :lol:

I have lost count how many times I have almost died from forgetting to breathe looking at these, but this time I think a couple of my ancestors did the same... :eek2:
