* added new functionality to the rpg prototype (WiP)
* added planar shadows for most dynamic entities
* added -o option for servers to disable "locked" and "private" mastermodes

#21: Hats off and bow deeply

by blikje bier on 04/14/2007 09:02

I am very impressed with this release, not only does the water reflections and other things work for me now, with everything on and a decent resolution of 1024 x 768 it still won\'t turn into a slideshow although it is very hard work for my old machine (1.8 athlon, 1 gig, TNT 3 Ti 200 (64 mb)).

I only haven't touched the grass yet.

Still very impressive

#22: Grass?

by blikje bier on 04/14/2007 09:12

Uh i said something about grass, yup.

It works as well and still it won't turn into a slide show.

#23: Re: 3D Menus are bad

since your hands are already on WASD from playing, moving around to position the menu is very natural.

Feel free to not want to change. But the 2d menus are gone, and will not come back.

Aardappel, glitch !

If you disable shaders (useful with my graphic card, lol), water is COMPLETELY BLACK.

Is it a glitch or me ?

5200 drivers have some stupid bugs in them. Run with shaders on, but shaderdetail set to 0. Only way to really fix that.

#26: Menus are good

by Eris on 04/14/2007 11:25, refers to #9

I disagree, I think that the menu stays.

#28: ok

by Mic on 04/14/2007 13:43

Just a question, but wasn't sauer ment to produce a good gameplay, instead of eye-candy?
But there's alot of eye candy..

Bumpmapping, grass, reflective water & some more shaders..

ok srry, that was totally off-topic, and shoulden't be in this thread,

Good release :)
New sounds are good, and the new telport model is cool

#30: Re: 3D Menus are bad

by Max of S2D [Fr] on 04/14/2007 14:02, refers to #25

i found the way to fix them without turning on shaders.

waterreflect and waterrefract at 0 !

Oh, yeah, and are the weird distorsions of water when i move are glitches ?

thx :)

That explains my only problem...

it's not animated, but in the second level, sometimes there's, um... little part, CAUSTICS SHAPED, that make some parts of the water a bit brighter.

Like if i was inside the water, um.

should run on 10.3.9 and up as always...

if sauerbraten crashes you should post the crash logs here.

I couldn't find anything about putting the grass in the game in the readme or the wiki... How do i put grass in?

I also get stuck more often now, as do monsters - I've had to put them out of their half-stuck-in-wall misery before.

I also get wierd shadows for ammunition boxes now.

#36: waterfall wierdness

by abcord on 04/14/2007 22:33

I also find it pretty odd that you can swim UP the waterfalls. Ah well - Still an awesome job!

One bug i noticed was that map models have wireframe shadows instead of solid shadows.

Also, are caustics actually being calculated or are they scipted? I think they are just scripted because of the many caustic images but im not sure. Also, i may be wrong but the the caustics dont seem to sync up from the floor to the wall.

by Quin on 04/15/2007 00:21, refers to #34

Look at data/default_map_settings.cfg - this should go without saying seeing as the grass is already demonstrated with the default map settings. Yes, I forgot to document that in addition to the grassdist, etc commands. My bad.

this release is EXCELLENT!

by pvt. Johnson on 04/15/2007 18:33

this release revamped my interest in Sauerbraten. The graphics are amazing and i can see some amazing stuff coming out of it a game engine(well a free one at that). i love the new sounds, they are gritty and profesional. the old sounds were... not good lol. as for Sauerbraten the game itself it could be improved, the guns stick to the screen like they are glued there(no weapon sway/bob), animations could be more creative(character, weapon animations, they are fairly boring), weapon models dont really have detailed animations(like no shell release for shotty, pistol, etc), the monsters get stuck very easily, the player him self gets stuck in small places, and some other noticable things that arent so great. i do realize that Suaerbraten is a game engine more rather than a game itself so its up to the creator of sauerbraten or a modder to extend appon what is already there. also i dont think there is muzzle flair for the weapons... that would be nice ;) (if it is wished to be added)

the release is a good one.... cant wait for the next.
