Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

I've fixed some glitches with the new texel alignment code, there was vertical line going through the lower-right portion of the map and some blurring was visible in certain parts of menus, most apparent on Options>Graphics menu's scrollbar. There is just one minor glitch left, the health bar leaves...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

New and final update for the time being will come out next weekend when I have more time. It turned out there are some stability issues with the latest fix for multiplayer disconnect issue and the variant from 13th November update is the most stable. Should have tested more than just 3 multiplayer r...

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

I do get the mobile version as in the screenshot you posted on my phone, just the "Request desktop site" option produces the hybrid version instead of full desktop version. I wonder if "Request desktop site" does anything else besides that it removes Android from user agent string. Not really famili...

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

It's not a major issue, but it's very strange. Looks like there is this third layout that looks like a hybrid between full desktop and full mobile version. The first screenshot is from my phone, the second is from Android x86, showing regular desktop site as it also appears normally on computers. On...

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

Sony Xperia E3, latest official ROM (Android Kitkat 4.4.4), Chrome 55. Note that there aren't any issues with the mobile version itself, just requesting desktop version (Request desktop site option) doesn't get me quite the same thing as on actual PC. Selected theme doesn't make a difference. I trie...

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

Did anyone ever encounter any issues with desktop version of the forum site on mobile devices not appearing quite the same as it would on an actual desktop? On my phone, only the Topics column is visible, the number of replies are shown along with the thread title under Topics, Views and Last post a...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Made another tweak for that pesky fullscreen disconnect issue, the very first variant worked without issues because certain code was executed every time around the game loop, then I changed that to skip the section with a lot of rendering calls when the game is minimized, the only problem is there m...

Re: Less FPS = more blood

There's no issue with blood if Rynn is killed in a brutal way, eg. being gibbed by explosive barrel. When game decides there should be bloodbath in such scenario, there is always a lot of it. Sometimes there is none at all, but FPS doesn't seem to have any influence in such case.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

I've hacked together another update, there was a funny glitch with multiplayer if the player had game minimized when the level transition happened. Again, only in fullscreen mode. There is also a new dedicated server launcher in the ZIP, it just keeps the server running if it crashes and suppresses ...

Re: Less FPS = more blood

CPU Grabber is quite ugly solution for slowing games down. It works by stressing CPU needlessly, so it runs hotter and wastes more power for nothing. We have these things called frame-rate limiters for such tasks. They usually work with everything that utilizes hardware acceleration for graphics. NV...

Re: Drakan Gold Pack

https://gamefront.online/files/24922998/Drakan%20Gold%20Pack%20%7B2015%7DFinal.zip It's a bit obsolete though. There's been some development on the AiO Patch front as I still update it occasionally. And I don't think AXE thoroughly checked whether all player-made levels work. My copy has few extra w...

Welp, I just can't make things too messy under normal circumstances.

Re: Less FPS = more blood

There looks to be 2 kinds of blood, the kind that disappears (more like shrink away) and the kind that stays permanently. There is much more of the latter at lower frame rates.

Less FPS = more blood

I messed with DOSBox a little during the holidays (SVN Daum build, it emulates Voodoo 1 graphics card), installed Windows 98 SE on it and Drakan. I think it pretty much worked as one would except on such hardware plus the slowness due to DOSBox being an emulator. One thing stood out though, there wa...
