Well I haven't contributed anything to the HRP in quite a while (aside from the odd texture update here and there). but there's no harm in asking, eh? I'm sure it will be worth the wait, the new renderer looks bad ass.

We'll all get our chance to use the new engine once all the optimisations are finished, and any bugs fixed. It may be released at the end of this month. (If we're lucky...)

The Duke will kill you. The Budgies will eat you! And the Cats finish what the Budgies don't do!

- It's always a good day, to bet on EDuke32!

I discovered Polymer actually does work on my card.....it just doesn't work when there's actually any lights anywhere. It just won't start Episode one because of the explosions from Duke's ship which probably emit lights. I started Episode 3 successfully, though. But as soon as I went to jump off the building and that Enforcer appeared (the teleporting of which probably emits light) the game hung. Well, it doesn't really hang it just takes FOREVER. Like a framerate of 0.0000000000001. Well not really framerate either because the game isn't actually playing. It seems like the game is just pausing until it can figure itself out...the music still plays but the rest of the game doesn't. I've never ever seen any lights successfully :D. Oh well...

You can always set `r_pr_lighting 0` in the console.

What's your card? Also, please attach eduke32.log after running `glinfo` in the console.

I tried it and the game at least runs a little better...though without lights...so that defeats the whole purpose. But it still really seizes up sometimes. I discovered that it won't seize up (framerate returns to normal) if you don't look at the fence (or the sky perhaps?) at the beginning of Hollywood Holocaust. And also the explosive tanks and the ship and everything (all sprites) on the roof are visible through walls (through the box and the skylight thing).

I have an ATI X1650 Pro AGP card. Here's the log after glinfo:

Thank you Parkar, I just want to be fair, that is all. I will try Polymer first when it becomes available for anyone and yes, I am really looking forward to it...

And no one suggested otherwise. Come on!

I had been under the impression that Polymer was being given to people actively developing stuff, which makes sense because we need to know what we are developing for. The fact is, a lot of copies are now going around and no serious effort is being made to keep it under wraps. That's fine by me, I really don't care. However, it would be nice to have some guidelines.

Polymer works fine on my comp, runs just as smooth as polymost, but then again i don't have any of the lightpacks or whatever.

I know. :D I'll check to see if I have the latest drivers but I doubt it'll work. Bloody ATI. Why did I have to make the mistake of buying an ATI card.....twice??? Well, the first time it was an ATI 9800 Pro All in Wonder card and it came with Half-Life 2 and Morrowind. So I guess that was a good thing. But I shouldn't have gotten this dumb X1650. I've been haggling with it in Linux for two years now. I'm never getting ATI again. My next card is going to be nVidia. Setting my eyes on a GeForce 9500 GT I think. But that won't happen until I get a new computer with a PCI-E capable mobo.

EDIT: It seems ATI has stopped supporting my card regularly and is now in the legacy category. I can only get the 9.03 driver which I think is what I already have.

I don't know what your smoking, but your card is under the Radeon tab.

EDIT: Oh I see your using Linux but it's still under the Radeon tab, choose the X1600 series.

I don't have a model of Duke's hand holding a flashlight to put in the hud. I suppose I could make the flashlight hover in front of him, like the flares, and then I would only need a flashlight model.


Sounds very sweet. Is there any way to put a texture, or lightmap onto spots so that we could get that effect of seeing the imperfections in the plastic lens and reflector cup of the flashlight? If so, its Doom 3 quality flashlight here we come.

That reminds me of something else. Whats happening with HUD models? Is the HUD model system being redone to get rid of all the little flaws that cause the errors in the shotgun?

Back at 3DR, I recall Plagman stating that HUD stuff currently still uses polymost, but that he would eventually switch it over to polymer and have it lit as though it were part of the game world.

@Teamonster

I was talking with DT, and he suggested I post this. How about instead of (or an alternative to) the flashlight we do a Zippo lighter? You could model it up nice with a signature Nuke symbol and nice shiny chrome!

I mean, Duke has to light his cigars somehow, right? =)

I like that idea as a alternative to the flares (because honestly, flares aren't very Duke like). Of course, the lighters would have to be unrealistically bright to be useful.

The cool thing about a flashlight is that it makes use of the spot light effect. There's no way a lighter can be a spot light.

But as some have noted, I really don't need a model for the flashlight. In fact, it would suck to have to put away your weapon and get it out each time you wanted to use it. It could be like some games where you turn it on and the light is just there while you still hold your weapon (maybe he has an attachment to his nightvision goggles?)

Talked to Plagman about that just a few days ago and it's on the future feature list. Will be real useful for mappers to get cool looking cheap shadows in a lot of cases. Not to mention multicoloured spotlights.

I love the lighter idea. But as Deeper Thought says, you would need to fill it with magnesium to get the right amount of light out of it in real life. Then the hand would have to have some kind of asbestos glove on it and the lighter would have to be made of Beryllium or something similar to stop from melting. But hey, its a game, what the heck! It would look cool, which is the main thing! I'll come up with something though and I'll PM DT when its done :)

The only other 'problem' with that is that the point lights don't cast shadows. You could do an array of spots to fake it, but you might get shadow artifacts and so forth. Also with enough to fake a sphere of light, you may get a performance hit on the frame rate. DT would have to have a play with a setup and see how it goes.

Yeah I think a point will do fine. The flashlight can be a spot though.

Yes, and that takes you to the Legacy Display Driver download page. Which is 9.3-only. And I'm not using Linux (not right now, anyway).

Says this:

Quote

AMD has moved a number of DX9 ATI Radeon™ graphics accelerators products to a legacy driver support structure. This change impacts Windows XP, Windows Vista, and Linux distributions. AMD has moved to a legacy software support structure for these graphics accelerator products in an effort to better focus development resources on future products.


Then it shows a list of all cards that have moved under Legacy devices and the X1650 is there.

This is pretty sweet stuff.
Its amazing what you can do when you got the sourcecode, update a game released in 1996 to todays modern graphical standards.
And to think these kind of visuals were rendered as an April fools for HRP. :)

I just cant wait to let my GTX280 sink its teeth into this. :(
