Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Uploaded it again, just did some quick small layer visibility fixes in Volcano. These small details just won't give me peace.

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Done with what I've wanted to do. The issue with blueish river in Wartok Canyons is actually bump mapping feature bugging out. I have no idea what's special about those parts, but it's not layer visibility problem.

Re: Drakan Remake by YanGez93

I cannot run the game anyomore (tried even virtual machine with XP, but no success) therefore I cannot rip any more models. Still puzzled why it won't run for you. My PC is old enough that all hardware even has XP drivers available, so I put 64-bit XP on it once just for messing around and was amaz...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

The save problem is one of those random bugs, haven't been able to reproduce it since. I've triple-checked my code for deficiencies, the only issue that remained in from the time I was looking for more optimal solution for multiplayer player-disconnect bug is the crashing during cutscenes, it happen...

Re: Drakan Remake by YanGez93

I was only concerned if the voices have to be recorded from scratch for the remake for legal reasons. But if some assets from Drakan can be re-used, that's one less obstacle I suppose. Though the only way to get sounds out of the editor is by playing them and having them recorded with some sound rec...

Re: Drakan Remake by YanGez93

Would be easier if you weren't one-man army, huh? Regarding cutscenes, they also had voice actors. BTW, the textures in recent screenshots, are those freely available on the internet?

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

I was just polishing layer visibility in Ruined Village level (parts of terrain popping up in the distance, parts of it being invisible from certain points, that sort of thing), not finished with everything I wanted to do, there's still one spot to take care of, hence no announcement yet, just put i...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Did another update, mostly out of the necessity because of the small layer visibility glitch in Grotto, that cave guarded by the Giant, the part with Scavengers wasn't rendered until the player got past the hole in the wall. Also optimized all the surrounding area so the engine doesn't waste cycles ...

Re: Having difficulty with VirtualBox Windows 10 on MacBook Pro

VirtualBox's virtual machine only supports DirectX 8/9, Drakan uses DirectX 6.1. I don't have Mac neither so I can't give precise instructions, you could try setting up WINE on your machine then run Drakan through that, performance won't be optimal though. You'd probably need to decrease Max Fog Dep...

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

Like I suggested earlier, if you can find a way to make lifetime parameter work, that'd be great. Agreed. Besides perhaps the parameter being overridden by something else, maybe devs accidentally haven't used it in the code and put the default number in there directly, effectively making the parame...

Looks like the most viewed thread on the entire forum! Also not very old.

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

The issue with code tag is really strange. I assume there's no (relevant) settings related to it. Could it be just the bug in the used version of the forum software? It is pretty basic function.

Re: New forum style to try out & server upgrade

Out of curiosity, was the issue with private messages a bug present in original WoW style?

Re: Widescreen hack and some other fixes aka AiO Patch

I also haven't had the oppurtunity to play the game straight from start to finish, just testing individual parts like crazy. At least the code shouldn't have any more regressions, besides that oddity with minimizing the game while in fullscreen in multiplayer mentioned in Known issues. I realized th...
