Re: [1.0.0] non-blocking save on Linux crashes or locks up

That's a shame. It's interesting that the feature is causing so many problems to begin with.

[1.0.0] non-blocking save on Linux crashes or locks up

At the first time, autosave produced a message that the save process crashed. The second time, it locked up in the background. I was unable to save the game manually. There was a message in syslog and a bunch of files in /tmp/dumps left: Aug 16 10:07:29 burzum.local crash_20200816100729_2.dmp[8108]:...

Re: Friday Facts #264 - Texture streaming

If for some reason, VRAM use ever becomes an issue, you could give players the option to only use any 2nd, 3rd or 4th frame of each animation, so that only animation FPS suffers instead of having the entire scene FPS drop. That way, animations would lag but player movement would still be butter smo...

Re: Friday Facts #264 - Texture streaming

[...] rendering subsystem and game logic are quite well separated. Entities know how to create sprite draw orders to draw themselves (and don't care much about what happens to them), and renderer doesn't have any context about sprite draw orders it got - for example if it is a frame of an animation...

Re: Friday Facts #264 - Texture streaming

Hm..if by "synching animations" you mean that every $machine-x entity animates exactly the same frame at the same tick i don't like that at all, so i hope i'm just misunderstanding. While i'm not sure how that would even work for different-speeded machines (irregular beacons/modules), eve...

Re: Friday Facts #264 - Texture streaming

Can we make it good enough, so it wouldn't be an experimental option any more, but something that could be enabled by default? Let's see. The problem is texture allocations, so let's allocate one texture for the entire bitmap cache - it would be a sprite atlas that we would dynamically update. That...

compression on 4K screens proposal

Hey, Please hear my argument as for why forced compression is a good idea for 4K screens. The option to force-compress all loaded sprite sheets exists, isn't meant to go away anytime, but there's more than can be done. I think there's a decent amount of people with low VRAM like me. Sorry for not st...

I have a mod (as is now) I run a mod packing program, and press go. Mod is processed and zipped into the new format.

Basically, all that changes is the zipping it step.
I can write you a Python program you can invoke right after! Is that enough?

Is it possible to detect the weapon switch and draw a sprite on the screen, inside a mod?

weapon switch not clearly visible

It's hard for me to notice which weapon I switched to, having a large display. The bottom-right selector is some 40 cm away and I'm focusing on the cursor. This of course lead to hilarious events like blowing up a car, rather than just making it clearer to see through having its hitpoints shown. Are...

Re: [FEATURE] VRAM requirement is not sane

Sorry, that's a misunderstanding. What I meant is to provide a one-click converter that does the right thing. Question is whether it's needed to begin with, for any modding tasks.

Re: [FEATURE] VRAM requirement is not sane

What issues do you have with creating new assets and packing the mod? There should definitely be a tool making it all in one go. And I can help! I can think of making sprite sheets for animations. These can be made with some Python or shell imagemagick invocations, keeping source material intact. Ar...

Re: [FEATURE] VRAM requirement is not sane

So the theoretical blob should contain all sprites, already cropped and separated to individual frames in format suitable for use on GPU without any conversion. Why not create a cache file for each mod like this? Right now even with supported options, loading assets into VRAM takes its time. Creati...

Re: [FEATURE] VRAM requirement is not sane

posila, post the required format's spec and semantics. Then the problem will solve itself before you finish the renderer. If you publish a sample implementation, all the better. And if it can be done completely automated why can't it be integrated into the current "atlas making" process, a...

[posila] freeze, GL_OUT_OF_MEMORY not handled

I used .ini settings (force-off compression, high quality sprites) to force an out-of-VRAM condition. Strangely this error happened rather than keeping textures in main memory (I was trying to test low-VRAM thrashing). There's 16 GB of free main system RAM at the time of the freeze. This error happe...
