Says the history.html:

* local server now respects "gamespeed" and "paused" vars
* added toggles for trilinear and bilinear filtering (via "trilinear" and "bilinear" vars)
* added "consize" var for controlling the size of the default/overlayed console
* server browser now sorts servers by number of players (empty servers still sorted by ping)
* directions and radiuses of entities now display in edit mode (toggled via "showentradius" var)
* added support for FBO depth+stencil format so dynamic shadows can render properly in water refractions
* "remip" now synchronized with all clients in coop-edit
* added "clearbans" command so masters can clear all bans
* added "floatspeed" var for controlling spectator/editmode movement speed
* added "outlinemeters" var for outlining capture meters
* added "teamskins" var for toggling usage of red/blue skins in FFA modes
* added "ogro" var for toggling use of Ogro
* models now use a bounding interval hierarchy for ray tracing/lightmapping instead of sphere trees (better memory/cache usage)
* added workaround for crashes with Linux ATI/fglrx drivers
* fixed collision bug that let players walk inside sloped geometry
* added blood decals (toggled via the "blood" var)
* added "insta capture" game mode
* tweaked capture gameplay timings
* added calclight visualization of lightmaps
* added "-v" command-line option for controlling vsync
* added "-k" command-line option for adding mod directories
* added "-q" command-line option to set per-user home directories
* added "-r" command-line option to load "init.cfg" on startup
* added "init.cfg" so init settings can be changed from in-game and take effect on restart without needing command-line
* added "guilistslider" command for selecting from a list of specific integer values
* added support for hardware-accelerated mipmap generation (via "hwmipmap" var)
* added "gui2d" var for making all menus/scoreboard 2D
* added "texreduce" var for scaling texture quality down
* added dynamic lighting system
* new "gridlookup" var controls whether cursor grid size is looked up from cube under cursor
* refactored gameplay and moved some of it (damage, ammo, health) server-side
* autoteam now only selects good/evil regardless of number of teams in play
* experimental server-side demo recording
* added "admin" privileges via "setmaster password"
* added support for translucent models
* made yaw/pitch of playermodels interpolated in multiplayer
* VBOs now supported on animated models
* added support for custom fonts
* added "lava" material
* added "goto" command for spectators
* made models share meshes/rendering data if same md2/md3 file is loaded for better memory usage
* connection to masterserver can now be aborted in case the http socket connect locks up
* fixed bug that caused some unnecessary sparklies in indoor maps
* glowmapped models/geometry now work in fixed-function mode
* models now support environment mapping (via custom envmaps or envmap entities)
* added (ugly) fallback for old cards with no multitexture support (rather than spitting out error and quitting)
* revised texture combiner support to more easily add fixed-function effects
* fixed particles and materials not fogging properly
* duplicate player names are now distinguished by client number
* optimized model rendering to batch similar models and reduce state changing as much as possible
* capture bases can now be named via "base_N" aliases
* animation now supports multi-part md3 characters
* added support for OGG sounds
* added "spotlight" entities
* added texture slot "e" for loading custom envmaps with envmapped shaders
* added support for post-pass blurring of lightmaps (via "blurlms" and "blurskylight" vars)
* added ambient occlusion for lightmaps (via "skylight" command)
* added softened explosions via shaders (spheres) or fixed-function mode (hemispheres)
* added workaround for explosions crashing on some Intel integrated graphics
* added vertex animation to water

#134: Re: FPS questions?

well the thing is that it runs just as smoothly as the 7600 i just cant enable anti-aliasing.

It happens, at least for me. Try maxfps 30, Aardappel. And it happened ever since, I remember trying sauer on a bad system back then, and I couldn´t play properly because of it.

I´m on windows, no mouse drivers..
I got a mid/high sens, ca 12cm/180°

It might be not as noticeable in higher ranges.

Set "shaders 0" in the console, then restart.

I just tested, and at 30fps, I get pretty much the exact same amount of 360s rotating slowly or as fast as I can. That was at about 8cm/180.

Also get a Video Card period. Using on board video consumes both system RAM and CPU cycles thus slowing down the game immensely.

As soon as you pull your 3d video to a dedicated card you will see a serious performance increase.

Using a g5 I found out if I use lower dpi, the effect becomes less apparent, also on high sens it´s less obvious.
Looking at sauer though, I consider a 15-20cm/180° still somewhat mid-sens, and I know quite some low-sens players that play 20-30 or more.

It feels like the engine would choke on translating the mouse infos to those few frames.

All I know is, I tested on ut and quake based games and it doesn´t happen there.

I doubt it´s my system too, mouse is the only thing plugged into my usb.
As said, no drivers, neutral settings, mouse-fixes applied, refresh rate applied.

#140: Importing maps

by Jake777 on 09/01/2007 06:16

I have played the new version on my other computer but I have not tried to import maps from the older version yet. I am finally downloading it on this computer and this is the computer with all my maps. Im probably going to figure this out in about 10 minutes anyway.

Never mind.

Sauerbraten supports all map formats dating back to the earliest cube betas. Any map made from a previous version will always work, just not the other way around (map in new version with previous version).

I got some ugly rendering bugs with the summer edition , distorted textures all over the map even with minimal settings on (no shaders or advanced effects)

Though I really don\'t have the latest graphics card , I don\'t see any reason to see this :


...while spring edition worked fine.

Try in your autoexec.cfg: zpass 0

#147: Sept 4th patch?

by SwordAngel on 09/07/2007 19:47

I see that there has been a new patch for Linux and Windows on Sept 4th. Is the Mac version affected?

1.Models cast shadows, even with mdlshadow 0

2.Alpha blending works, but alpha blending is not visible through other alpha blended objects. Neither are particles.


AMD64 3200+
ATI Radeon 9600 AIW(changing soon)

Don't use alpha blending on models. It is not meant to be used for that purpose.

How do you add translucent models then?

reply to this message

#151: Re: ..

Render them with MDL_TRANSLUCENT in the rendermodel flags.

>Is the Mac version affected?

i wonder that too, what exactly does it change?
since i'm back from vacation i could build the patch if it is needed.

I wonder how that got left out of the docs :(

Because it's code side :P
