This should work but you could also just build fltk with it's built in png support

Re: BZWorkBench Status

Which version of FLTK did you install? I think it needs FLTK1.3 now (which isn't released, so you'll have to compile/install FLTK1.3 yourself, uninstalling FLTK1.1 first) http://www.fltk.org/ Blast is correct fltk 1.3 is what I was using last time I worked on this program. However you could manuall...

Re: GMs

you have to change _shotRange and also possibly _gmAdLife

_gmAdLife default is 0.95 . This value is Multiplied by _shotRange to determine the distance guided missiles will travel.

Re: Questions about rain

Why not just use a textured mesh instead

You could then use any texture you want and it would be stationary unless you add drawinfo's angvel

or if you just want a different ground texture you could just add a GroundMaterial to your map file.

Re: tank able to drive on a slope

Open source projects can evolve just fine without being forked, if it's allowed by the Project Leaders. Forked projects usually die fairly quickly, unless they have a dedicated team that does not lose interest. No one mentioned tilting the tank, except for you JeffM. This can be done without tilting...

Re: tank able to drive on a slope

So as I'm sure you can see now, the core developers will most likely never allow this to be added to BZFlag. The only way I see this ever happening is if someone forks the BZFlag project into a new project not under their control. Forking BZFlag would not be to difficult, but getting a new player ba...

Re: tank able to drive on a slope

I wrote code that does this already. Came out of from work I was doing to improve the _maxBumpHeight functionality. It did not change the tanks angle, pitch or roll in any way, but allowed the tank to drive up slopes. Look just like a tank going up an escalator, but with better player control. The g...

Thanks Joevano, not sure if that really counts here though.

Re: PassTheFlag

I haven't tried the plug-in. It seems like an interesting idea though. Suggestions: - thrown flags should NOT be able to be thrown through walls. Instead it should hit the wall, bounce back off of the wall and fall to the ground. - if the tank is turning (while inAir or onGround) at the time the fla...

Re: Won't work on xp sp2

I can run BZFlag on XP SP2, but I compiled it myself on that machine. dinput8.dll is part of DirectX, so reinstalling DirextX seems like the right thing try.

I like using define and group sorry Yes it would then be invisible from above, but not the top face it would be visible as only the bottom face was flipped every vertex used in the face can also reference a 3D normal, think of it as a pointer or direction the face is facing. but you don't have to us...

Re: Jump up boxes

2.99/3.0 is not the problem here

first remove "position" and "size" as these do not belong inside a mesh object

second add a matref to the mesh, so you can see the faces your defining

finally, recheck you vertices and faces as I don't think you've got what you are expecting

Re: Can't understand RGBA coloring.

diffuse 1 1 1 1 is solid white, combined with a texture, the texture would look normal

diffuse 0.3 1 1 1 is solid light blue, combined with a texture, the texture should look tinted light blue

#4dFFFF

use stronger colors further from white to get more of a difference

Re: Simple texcoord variant?

if you use a mesh (not a bunch of meshboxes) you have to use texcoords (UV) to define how that texture is applied to the mesh it is possible to write a very simple mesh by hand, but anything more complicated and you would want to use a modeler that supports adding UV texture coordinates and export t...

Re: bzfed help 2

Sorry :doh: , I should have told you to place the "#include <stdlib.h>" in the texture_manager.h file instead of the texture_manager.cpp file.

texture_manager.cpp includes texture_manager.h so it only needs to be in texture_manager.h

Give that a try and see how far you get
