Re: Blade´s programmer celebrates 20th Anniversary

What does then? um... the number of polygons, and the amount of detail that the artists put into the textures' design? What can I say. It shows your subjective, sense of quality. You also forgot about textures' resolution. Which again, gives subjective impression and rationalizes claim that 5 year ...

Re: Blade´s programmer celebrates 20th Anniversary

LATE 2001, whereas BoD is EARLY 2001. That's a ten-month difference. I said "at the time of BoD's release". Engine it used was idTech3 from 1999 so your remark is inapplicable. Otherwise you have to deal with the fact that you compare it with two years old technology. There are things tha...

Re: Blade´s programmer celebrates 20th Anniversary

No, why? It's bit subjective, I know, but stencil shadows are not a whole game. But, yeah, you're right, it was 1999 game. Return to Castle Wolfenstein is from 2001. That's fairer comparison. Also American McGee's Alice (2000), or Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2 (2000). That's less fair as they're already y...

Re: Open Source Projects

There are a few.
Sryml has map fog editor and mmp<->image converter.

There is quicksave mod.

And all mods on moddb are essentially open source - they are written in python and compiled by game engine so you can read it openly.

Re: Gadget: Check if BoD has crashed...

It happens in OpenGL renderer. Check this post.

Go backwards through the door and it will not crash.

I am not exactly sure what kind of "crash" it is as it looks like (infinite) loop - it rarely crashes (segfault) to desktop.

window, and other shortcuts

There is a window that one can go through although, most likely, not intended to. It's the at (15000, -12000, 95000). It can be done slightly diagonally starting from corner. I tried with other windows and it won't work although they look the same. It become my favourite way to run through the map. ...

Fugitive I - technical questions

I couldn't find any relevant topic that I could recycle so I created separate. I was checking my Fugitive I addon and to my surprise I discovered this line (57) in `cfg.py': execfile("DefFuncs.py.") There shouldn't be a dot in file name". I am surprised it works despite the typo. Also...

comparison

Fair comparison, even from the same genre, would be Rune on Unreal engine or Silent Hill 2, with similar stencil shadows. Comparing it to 5 year old game is contrived.

Quake3.

technical details

For me it explanation why CPU is so much more important than GPU in this game was interesting. One thing though - comparison to Quake may be appealing, as Quake is widely known, but not very accurate, to not say misconceived. Quake was released in '96, five years earlier, and Quake III was released ...

GOG

GOG version is "optimized" for OpenGL renderer. One should try it first.

files format

Uncompressed wav will work for sure. You cat start from that.
Some of BoD wavs are compressed with some odd encoder but uncompressed should work without problem.

blade-of-darkness.bigtruck-canada.ca

Is http://blade-of-darkness.bigtruck-canada.ca down?
I tried to connect but it turned out to be impossible. Then Whois says that it's prolonged a month ago. So, is it temporary web hosting issue or something? Someone knows?

re: LM35

This page says that recommended supply voltage is 7-12[V], and 5.5V is maximum input voltage, so maybe 6V from batteries is too low rather than too high. I tried to dig out that thermometer prototype but couldn't find it but as far as I remember and that's what I found in only survivor source I rea...
