Full Screen Radar

I've written a couple of patches to do full screen
radar toggling (against the 2.0.9 branch code).

The first version simply overlays the radar on
the viewport. Note that the screenshot was taken
at the default '2' radar level, and that the top and
bottom of the radar field are clipped. That's
because I've written the patch to respect the
_radarLimit BZDB variable.

The second version places the viewport where
the radar used to be. The target box sucks in
the screenshot, but that can easily be remedied.

I'm not overly fond of either setup.

I'll wondered what it would be like.

I like the first example trepan, but have to admit now it doesn't look so good either.

It depends on if someone can easily "block out" or tune out the graphics in the background, or at least tune out what they don't want to see.

There are times you want to be able to see the full screen graphics, so I feel your second option would just be too limiting.

I would love to try the full screen radar in the first example (though I can't right now because of a conflict between OS X 10.3.9 and QuickTime 7.0.2), could you post the patch, perhaps?

For those who fancy round radars ;-)
(works in non-fullscreen too)

I guess the console is hidden... where does it show up when toggling?

Nice work!

Nice! What are the lines around the flag-bearing tanks for? Identification?

Saturos:
The console shows up full length along the
bottom, like when you have the radar disabled.

Here's something that hasn't been mentioned...where's the shooting box in the first option?

dartman: Roaming... it's normally there.

That is trepan's "Hunt" enhancement, which is integrated with radar (as is standard hunt/multi-hunt).
