DaBrain is Portugese, he has the Portugese version, If I am correct.

DaB is German, IIRC.
And it's "Rumpfschaden", "Rumpf" = "hull" and "Schaden" = "damage".

That's it for the German lesson for today, see you next week when we'll cover dirty words.

He may be using the German version, still.

Wow, I didn't know that. ;)


I am german. ;7  Really.


DarthWang and Col. Fishguts are correct. "Rumpfschaden" is the german word for "Hulldamage".

@Ghost :lol: Too bad it's "Rumpf" and not "rump". That would be indeed very funny. ;)




BTW did one of you test the shockwave already?

There are two reasons why I didn't use a 3d shockwave with real "thickness".

1. No cool glow effect. (Would look terribly boring.)

2. If the shockwave really hits you (so you are "in" the shockwave) you would get ugly intersection problems.

Dunno if I should commit it, though, it might break backwards compatibility. :p

Upload a build then, if you can.

... Love...


I see a small bug in there... My fault.


Well, I held back a small thing that makes those shockwaves even a bit better. ;)

Maybe it's time to release it too.

BTW If you have that build already, please send me the link via PM. ;)

OK, I seem to have fixed the repeating shockwave problem. However, I'm still seeing ghost (grey) shockwaves just in front of the big blue ones. I'm pretty sure the frame of the non-glowmaps and the glowmaps are synced, is the ghosting supposed to be intentional?

Edit: The build's AMD64 Linux, so I don't think it'd be very helpful. But I uploaded it to http://fs2source.warpcore.org/exes/fs2_open_db.rar

Edit 2: I'm going to hold off commiting to CVS until I have a less hackish way of randomly rotating the shockwaves, just in case it matters somewhere.

That's my mistake. ;)

Sorry. :rolleyes:

Here is the fix:

http://www.game-warden.com/starfox/Non_SF_related_stuff/shockwave01_fix.rar

Put this into the 'maps' folder.

You can delete shockwave01.dds. It looks buggy. Dunno... I blame DXTc. ;7

Heh. :p

That seems to have fixed the ghosties.

Changes are in CVS; looking through the code, I doubt there's any missions that'll be broken; not even the SEXP lets you pick where shockwave(s) might appear (Although that'd be pretty easy to do, if someone has need of that).

Edit: You know, I'm no UVmapping genius, but couldn't you do the shockwave quadrants thing with the model?

I'm not really sure what mean.
Could you explain the "shockwave quadrants thing"?

Do you suggest to toss the animated map? :confused:

Make an ultra high res quarter of the shockwave, and then use UV mapping to line it up the four times to make a ring. Yea, that should work with this. Has nothing to do with animation or not, DaB.

Ah right...

That won't work that easily. Those frames were not suppoed to be used this way.

There would be visible seams. :(

Creating this kind of frames could be pretty hard and willof course be very time-intensive.


We could test it though. I can take care of the "quater" frame stuff, but I'm not sure how to do this 'exact' UV map stuff. ;)


BTW 12 MB for a shockwave aint that much anyway... I don't think anybody will mind.

Well, maybe some low-end users would rather have a shockwave with seams, than frame drops... :blah:
