Re: BZ2 SP Mission Fixes

yup, if he gets back to his base, they just keep sending attackers to defeat you and the mission only ends when/iff your recycler is destroyed. i should probably add some other conditions to that. Personally I don't mind the recycler being destroyed as the only losing condition, the only real chang...

Re: BZ2 1.3.7.0a130j posted

Can someone test for the return of the blink bug? I've heard a report saying that it's returned. The basic test is simple: - Have 'special weapon' bound to a key or mouse button (like middle mouse button) - Launch DM: Volcanoes and have another player join - Pick up blink - With another weapon selec...

Re: 1.3.7.0 on Linux/WINE

No, my settings are the same they were on earlier builds of 1.3 and similar to the behavior of Window OSes. The Wine settings are also to automatically capture mouse on fullscreen windows, and the focus behavior of KDE (my desktop environment) is click to focus, same as i've always had it. In fullsc...

Re: BZ2 1.3.7.0a130g posted

You're probably right. I did run through the installer but for some reason after it ran the VS 2008 installer nothing happened. The install would evidently appear to be completed (or otherwise exited silently) because of nothing in my taskbar, and no error messages. That said, when I checked the tas...

1.3.7.0 on Linux/WINE

A few thing i've noticed about running 1.3.7 on linux (tested on 1.3.7.0a130g, not having tried the previous 1.3.7.0a release). - BZ2 no longer needs dbghelp or any other manually added DLL overrides. - Visual C++ 2013 needs to be installed (as it's not bundled with the 1.3.7 installer). - The easie...

Re: Can't get editor to run 1.3.6.5/linux

Yeah, it seems to be related to graphics subsystems (drivers, graphic libraries, etc). I was wondering if the editor does something different than bzone regarding graphics which might cause this crash, and if so, if there is a workaround, like anything that can be disabled, or failsafe options.

Not sure what's happening.

Re: Smooth Terrain Rendering

I wouldn't mind knowing what those settings are. I think the apparent bugs with sky+renderbeforeterrain have to do with the way that the textures or dome geometry is set up, and can be helped out by adjusting the texture or dome distance but it seems to be imperfect. It would be nice if I could stud...

Re: How Such Optimize?

Oh yeah no argument here, my main question I guess is are there any specific methods BZ uses for stuff like this. FAFs seem to use very basic logic. They don't lead targets for example and they don't seem to prioritize close targets or targets nearer to the center of their scanning radius. I think ...

Re: Sneaky-Peaky of my baby project...

Are you maybe overthinking the convergence thing? As far as I know, BZ2 calculates convergence based on distance alone. The targeted enemy craft could be 100m behind or to the top of you and weapons would still converge as if it was directly in front of you. Or does the problem stem from the fact th...

Re: BZII High Resolution texture mod RELEASED

I wish BZ2 actually did bump maps right... BZ2 bumpmaps are kind of hacky. They're also hardcoded to use envmap.tga/dxtbz2 as a texture to add shininess to the other textures. In VSR, I have distributed a modified envmap.dxtbz2 texture which reduces the shinyness a little but also dramatically redu...

In the version I have, there's an option to disable the XBRZ logo.
