Re: Physics/Rendering engine

Even if PhysX *was* open source, the GPU version only runs on nVidia GPUs (hence why very few games actually use GPU PhysX and those that do only use it for optional features) and the CPU version isn't any faster than Bullet. Also, Bullet 3 adds support for GPU physics that should run on anything, s...

Re: OpenGEX as .Nif alternative for OpenMW

The 0.42 release probably attracted a bunch of new talent.

Re: Resting for 100 thousand hours nonstop

Just add a skip wait button and be done with it. You don't have to be sleeping for all the time you're resting. You could be having a gap year from adventuring, and just generally be chilling for all that time. I bet if Vivec got tired enough, he'd just rest for a couple of thousand years, so there'...

Re: Forum feature suggestion: Abandon smilies, use emoji

That's another benefit of emoji over smilies - they're usually vector-based, so can be made arbitrarily huge without looking like shit. I can't demo that here as there's a font size limit of 200%. Interestingly, the forum seems to replace emoji with an embedded version of emojione's SVG instead of a...

Re: Forum feature suggestion: Inline code tags

Github seems to use <code></code> for inline code in PR comments.

Forum feature suggestion: Abandon smilies, use emoji

These days as pretty much everything has some level of support for rendering emoji, do we really need to offer our own small set of smilies? We've already shown that it isn't enough by having to add the [ heart][/heart] tag when we could just have replaced the smilies picker with a selection of usef...

Forum feature suggestion: Inline code tags

We already have a way to mark up a block of code on this forum, but I keep wanting to write something simple like a type or variable name and have the option of either breaking the flow of a sentence by putting it on a new line in a [ code][/code] tag, or alternatively risk ambiguity by not formatti...

Re: Shadows

Back to some actual shadow stuff: Despite Scrawl's warnings that something with it was broken, I turned on the debugging for the shadow stuff and learned some useful things. It seems that a lot of the missing shadows are because of miscalculation of the shadow camera's viewing frustum, so I need to ...

Re: Shadows

It's a professional mailing list using people's real names and they encode the passwords in cleartext ? If you're going to be that much of a dick about using one's real name, maybe you should put that effort into looking after your users' data instead. :roll: Well obviously if your interactions wit...

Re: Shadows

I came up with AnyOldName3 when I was about twelve because I couldn't think of a good username for something, probably RuneScape, and have used it ever since. Because I've used it for so long, it barely even feels like a pseudonym anymore. Anyhow, it looks like my real name is the one that shows up ...
