That's amazing work you've got there. :eek2:

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Those look RAD. Keep it up!

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
After messing with APNGs the other day I sort of had an epiphany:


Since animated joints are not really possible in Freepspace 2 it kind of put an end to me portraying large armies duking it out on the ground. Buuuutttt I can kind of have it halfway using animated sprites in the background. Naturally this has all sorts of other applications, like having animated sprites for fleets battling to make the scale of conflicts look larger without the framerate crashing.

Wow that's very cool! I'm very interested in the detailed technical aspects of what's being done here. Did you use animated pngs or something and then used show effect or something?

Yep, they are a pre-rendered and packed into an apng, much like the talking portraits. As objects they are just a flat plane and set far into the distance of a level. I initially tried to make them background elements like a planet or nebula but the animation doesnt seem to play in that case.

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Did you tried using skyboxes for that kind of effect?

Great Universe...

How this is even possible on FSO o__O. Dude, your work denies any words I want to use to describe it. Whatever you do to achieve it, keep doing that!

The fact that I vanish for 5 months between posts, probably.  :pimp:

Still it feels like some sort of horrible heresy.

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
Well, browsing through the comment of the video and I'm still getting a lot of "I can't read any of the text comments!"
How exactly do I make the actual text itself much larger than currently in Freespace? I've used Axem's Scripted Message gauge and made $ScaleGauges = True, but while that makes the background behind the text and the UI around it larger I don't think it's making the actual text itself any larger.

 
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
You can specify custom fonts (and their size) here: https://wiki.hard-light.net/index.php/Fonts.tbl

Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
In addition to adding a new larger font you also need to tell the HUD gauge to use it in the hud gauges table (I dealt with that with FotG). I would be happy to give more detail and specifics if needed!

What made it hard to read was mostly the video's compression, IMO. There were many moments during which the text became blurry and pixelated.

  
Re: Star Fox: Event Horizon for FSO
I'm not sure if the old pixel fonts rendered well on all 4k systems.
