Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

UCyborg, you are like the best thing to ever happen to the Drakan community along with DrakonRider. I wish I had the coding knowledge the both of you had. I would have found a way to take control of the engine to make the game I wanted.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Woo! I took another look at editor crashing problem and as it turns out, there's really nothing wrong with keeping things in sync using standard window messages. The actual problem were RECURSIVE calls to SendMessage, which in practice, only served to fill up stack space in Windows kernel and when ...

Re: Making drakan *.Reo to *.Obj or *.Dae converter

We used to just convert REO to 3ds formats and then convert that to whatever we wanted. Then we edited and reversed the conversion. For REC you just need to use the REO > REC editor that Andrey made to set the weights to the new vertices. Sure it isn't clean, but it works. I'm not sure why someone h...

Yes! Thanks. It isn't a complicated map, but it was interesting to look at again.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

And did you know the actual max players limit on dedicated server is 64? Really, if you use -maxpayers parameter, it goes that high. The network programmer must have thought about the future. :mrgreen: Yes. There used to be a dedicated drakan server launcher. You could set it in the command line. I...

Re:

I'm curious if anyone has been playing this map since it was created. Also does anyone still have the map files? I'd like to check it out.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Even if no one uses it, I think I might take a shot at an HD mod. I have an artist available. I still remember how to texture map in the modeler.

Dude you are fricking amazing.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

If memory serves me correctly mipmapping was available for LOD textures on animated objects like NPCs Rynn and Arokh. Besides that it was never available. I think devs specifically mentioned it was practically a defunct engine feature.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

The game works! I was able to set my keybindings and start a game normally with a completely fresh install. I made a backup of this working version so I can tinker now without the risk of this breaking. It's surprising how well this engine has scaled to modern hardware. The lighting is still really ...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Only added 2 minor fixes for the Level Editor 3D Viewer I forgot about last time, on modern Windows, there is a strange glitch with windowed mode, window sort of flashes every once in a while and when it loses focus, for some reason Windows considers it non-responsive after 5 seconds. Workaround is...

Re: New Level Series Ideas

I really never tackled the STOMP editor as much as I wanted. While I was working on Joaxin I was learning the cinematic portion which it seemed a lot of people liked. I suppose if the tools work smoothly, there is a lot of work that can be done to make something interesting. I haven't played through...

Re: New Level Series Ideas

I mentioned the fog distance when Outlaw asked about it and the thing I thought I may be able to do is creating a sufficient amount of landmarks to be visible at any given time in the open areas. I actually hadn't considered people who may have the fog disabled. I may have to test it out. As for th...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Thanks for the reply. It's awesome seeing there is still someone so dedicated to this game. Where were you back when I was making Joaxin's relic ;) Anyways I do have my original disk which I did a clean install from, however I just realized that I added a whole lot of different db and level files.
