More Darkplaces Cvar Notes
After playing with the sv_gameplayfix variables some more I now recommend setting the variable:
I'm still not sure what it's meant to do. What I have observed is that when cvar is 0, you won't re-activate a button if you are standing on it when it returns to ready. So enabling the cvar best matches the observed behaviour of the original engines.
Spoke Too Soon
OK, the problem with sv_gameplayfix_nogravityonground is if you set it to 1 then suddenly the player slides around much more, it's like low friction mode. So I'm a bit on the fence now with what to set it to - having to step off a button to press it again isn't a big deal - but what if that's just one symptom of an issue that might include a major failure? For instance, if the entity you're standing on is supposed to be a movewall with damage performing the collision for a sharp blade, perhaps in darkplaces you'll be able to ride on it and only take one tic of damage. On the other hand, turning the cvar on has a global effect of making the game less responsive and harder to control, so that's pretty negative.
PS: when alt-tabbing in Windows 7 from darkplaces sometimes the window loses mouselook, and even re-entering +mlook in the console doesn't help. Anyone have a fix?
Nice find. It's kinda cool, he just randomly picks levels. Too bad I missed mappi2. This would perhaps be something for Daz, too. A random live stream of consciousness event.
the knee deep in the blog.
There's a bit of a thriving community of old school fps gamers on tumblr, it's nice to be a part of running my quake blog on there.
Watching other people getting Tronyn'd is way too fun to watch.
He got through surprisingly well, especially considering it was hard skill. Hell, he even chainsawed the final boss!
Not yet registered: Sorry, the documentation (and packaging) is lackluster at the moment. Building is meant to be done with Codeblocks, the project file should hopefully work.
reQuiem (without checking I THINK this is the correct capitalisation :D) uses OSS for sound, for me ALSA emulation always sucked bad with latency. I use OSS everywhere so it is perfect for me (and no one else probably...). I tried to convince someone to port the sound system to SDL but he vanished.
Spirit, I'll try compiling it again as soon as I have enough time to do it properly. I'll report if I find out anything useful about the sound issue, or have other contributions.
Necros: Mechanical Keyboards
I have a cherry with transparent switches. Was the cheapest one i could find, for ~50EUR. while built quality is not great, it served me well so far (~2years) I can look up model etc at work, if you're interested
from what I understand, the clear/white switches are the toughest ones to press. i'm actually thinking about the blue switches as they are easier to press than membrane keys and they have a nice satisfying click. :)
unfortunately, i'm also quite attached to the macro keys on my g15. they are very useful outside of gaming and i would sorely miss them which rules out most of the highly recommended keyboards like das, unicomp...
replace those with combinations?
are you talking about autohotkey?
Or Linux :-)
I Have Cherry Blues
And I got them because they are the loudest.
Doomguy Says HI
Chip is a fucking cunt and is trying to block a potential 2014 expo from happening because he wouldn't be the one getting all the praise from it.
Just thought I'd pass this on to all the people who were interested.
Are you out of your mind?
Fyi Qexpo 2014 Thread At I3d
Nicely Done, Otp
sounds to me like Chip has good reasons to not want to be involved too heavily on QExpo, plus he isnt asking for any credit from those posts.
Will there be enough interest for a qexpo? There scene is a little quiet at the minute. I'm toiling on my episode but it's probably only about 50% complete at best (start map and map 1-3 done... possibly going to make it 7 maps long in total for episode 1).
I have problem with SOE (map soe1m2). then I to touch altar engine stoped with error "no precache rubble1.mdl". I am restart map, to type in console "precache rubble1.mdl" and got error "no precache rubble2mdl". Again restart, type "precache rubble1.mdl", "precache rubble2.mdl", and got error "no precache rubble3.mdl". Again restart, type "precache rubble1.mdl", "precache rubble2.mdl", "precache rubble3.mdl" and got error "no precache1.mdl". That's this? Problem with max of precache count? how I can fix this?
last error "no precache rubble1.mdl". How fix?
What engine and have you tried a different one?
