I have a question about Mapster32:
Why screenshots isnt affected by changing the brightness (F11)?? My map is very dark, when i put the Brightness to its maximum, the screenshot looked the same... Is there a way to make screenshots brighter ?

Yeah, there's a way. It's called Photoshop.

Or GIMP, or Paint.NET, or whatever you want.

It's been a long time since i last logged into this forum. I see there has been tremendous progress and i wanted to thank all the people involved in making this old classic even better than it already was. I really appreciate all the time and effort put into eduke32, which i will play for a long time to come for sure.

I know there's another command to set animation, but within this code could you do something like this, so that EDITART is truly, 100% obsolete?

Code:
tilefromtexture 26 { file "pipebomb.gif" xoffset 3 yoffset -2 transfix }
With the offsets being the shifting of the display tile and transfix replacing all instances of the fullbright pink with the transparent pink.

Well, if he would accept donations already (which ive asked about before) I think he would find out how good it is.

The donations could be used to pay for eduke32.com because im sure that isn't free? Or what ever the hell he wants to spend it on.

I think eduke32.com is run off of SourceForge, and wiki.eduke.com is run off of Plagman's French server.

But it probably still cost(s) money for the domain name.

I'll have to dig into the code for editart to figure out how the offsets are stored, but it should be possible. I think they're stored in the same variable as the tile animation information so I'll probably have to adjust the functionality of animtilerange in order to get them working together.

Oh, and I do accept donations... PayPal any money the wrecked economy hasn't ass-raped you for to terminx@gmail.com. Anyone wanna help fix my overdrawn bank account? Yay for having to sell more stocks that are already falling.

Okay, the offset thing seems to work. Not gonna add the "transfix" portion as color 255 is already set to any area in the source image that is transparent.

Code:
case CON_IFPINVENTORY:
    {
        insptr++;
        j = 0;
        switch (*insptr++)
        {
        case GET_STEROIDS:
            if (g_player[g_p].ps->steroids_amount != *insptr)
                j = 1;
            break;
        case GET_SHIELD:
            if (g_player[g_p].ps->shield_amount != g_player[g_p].ps->max_shield_amount)
                j = 1;
            break;
        case GET_SCUBA:
            if (g_player[g_p].ps->scuba_amount != *insptr) j = 1;
            break;
ifpinventory GET_SHIELD is hardcoded to ignore the value you put in and use the max shield amount. I guess this bug probably goes back to the original source, but if it doesn't it should definitely be fixed.

It messed me up because I wanted to do an inventory hack using the shield for a mod that uses only 1.5 CON commands.

1) At least that doesn't apply to SHIELD actor, since:

2) If you are not using SHIELD actor, why can't you just...?

As I said, I am coding for a mod that uses only the old 1.5 commands. That means no gamevars, no get/set, no eduke commands at all. And even if the ifpinventory command were fixed, it would be of no use because the mod has to work in DOS Duke and all ports. So the player just won't have any special abilities related to his armor amount.

Re: EDuke32 snapshot thread
I don't think this bug warrants a new thread.

If you use gametextz, gametext ect and try to make it display a quote that isnt defined it just crashes Eduke32 and demands I send you my cons instead of giving an error or warning on start up.

e.g.

state displaygunlist
gametextz 2822 52 100 1040 0 7 16 0 0 xdim ydim 65536
gametextz 2822 52 108 1041 0 7 16 0 0 xdim ydim 58250
gametextz 2822 52 116 1042 0 7 16 0 0 xdim ydim 58250
gametextz 2822 52 124 1043 0 7 16 0 0 xdim ydim 58250
gametextz 2822 52 132 1044 0 7 16 0 0 xdim ydim 58250
gametextz 2822 52 140 1045 0 7 16 0 0 xdim ydim 58250
ends

definequote 1040 PISTOL
definequote 1041 SHOTGUN
definequote 1042 MACHINE GUN
definequote 1043 ROCKET LAUNCHER
definequote 1044 FLAME THROWER
definequote 1055 ARMOUR

(it is ment to be 1045, but this is how I came across it.)

Maybe it could be fixed to give an error at startup instead of during gameplay?

Blame that one on Hunter_rus... it's actually supposed to be a "soft" error that gets printed in the console instead of something that crashes the game, but he didn't add the relevant code to skip past the last parameter of gametextz in the case of an error. It'll be fixed in the next snapshot.

I actually noticed it a few months back but never botherd to say any thing to be honest, just that it happend to me again because of my laziness in typing numbers.

Re: EDuke32 snapshot thread
It turns out that disabling move flags on dead enemies has some undesirable side effects for flying enemies. Even the original actors are affected: Octabrains used to float slowly to the ground when killed, now they drop like stones. My RECONDP became frozen in air when killed, instead of crashing. I have at least two other mods with a similar actor. There's a good possibility of there being other mods with enemies that are supposed to move when killed (e.g. getting knocked backwards or into the air, or ships crashing).

I know the change was intended to fix an HRP problem, but that problem is fixed in Duke Plus, SD_Duke, and other mods, and fixing it only involves an extremely trivial modification to the original cons.

I am playing with latest snapshot and noticed that the E1L5 Battlelord is still always facing the player after death, while the Battlelord sentries from later episodes seem to be fixed. I'm not using any mod BTW (no SD_Duke, no Dukeplus or the like).

I guess that is because "strength 0" is only used in dead mini-Battlelord.

The problem is in the AI command, afair. It's something like “ai AIBOSS1DEAD faceplayer”. The faceplayer needs to be removed from CONs.

Re: EDuke32 snapshot thread
I just noticed that the addammo command is hardcoded to switch the player to the pistol when adding pistol ammo if he is using mighty boot. I guess they figured the player was too dumb to do it himself. Kind of annoying if you have modded mighty boot to be a serious weapon. I can work around it, though.

Yes, but in this case I am saying this because TerminX tried to fix it and now is only happening with miniboss.

I also had problems with that, but I won't expeculate on how to fix it, TerminX may think on something better than me...

Confirmed Bug:

Lets say that you decide to set Hires Texture Quality to max. You have to delete textures and textures.cache files, otherwise you have wrong textures displayed in various cases (wrong textures on the flour etc. etc.).

Re: EDuke32 snapshot thread
Something strange, though not really disturbing I noticed with recent builds:

If you end an episode and the game returns to the Duke3D intro screen, it will show a rather random texture in fullscreen size before, e.g. #1217 (broken coke machine) - but it could be anything else. Maybe it has to do with the game not switching back to the intro screen properly, or an issue with texture caching. The effect will only be visible for a few seconds, anyway. After that, everything returns back to normal.

Re: EDuke32 snapshot thread
New here but have been playing for a long while. I have been having alot of problems with software or 8bit mode. Switching to it from 32-bit causes the game to crash and starting in 8-bit I get alot of slowdown with full screen effects like when getting injured. I recently upgraded my video card and can run it witha ll the settings on high in 32-bit so it must be a software issue.

Fairly certain that's not a bug per se, that's how it acted with the previous texcache system too. If you changed drivers or videocard (or a few other things that I recall doing but have no idea what they were), the texcache directory would need to be flushed. Something to do with alternating texture storage / cache formats?

Anyway, I'm pretty sure that's just 'how it is'.

The cache gets flushed when the texture quality is changed. I'll add in a call to polymost_glreset() and actually delete the files as well just to make sure.
