backports for 2.0.12

Post by trepan » Sat May 30, 2009 5:00 pm

Here's a backport of some of my SVN client-side features to BZFlag 2.0.12:
http://trepan.bzflag.bz/bzV2_0_12-antiF ... owFix.diff

Anti Flicker:

Remaps the texture coordinates for boxes, bases, and pyramids to mask the
"z-fighting" flicker that can be seen on overlapping objects. Note that mesh
objects are not changed. Can be controlled via Options->Display->AntiFlicker.
P.S. It also makes most maps that use boxes look better, because it removes
seams by insuring consistent texture coordinates on any given plane (even
for well designed maps).

Mouse Clamp:

Clamps the cursor to the mouse box. Use CTRL to break the clamp.
Can be controlled using: /localset mouseClamp 1

Stencil Shadow Fix:

Forces the existence of the stencil buffer so that stencil shadows should work
on all graphics setups.

Finally got around to testing this code out and I must say that the Anti Flicker option is extremely useful. I spend most my time playing on the HiX map, which can get hard on the eyes if the wall suddenly jumps into block for half a second and back. ;)

Just a note, would you mind committing it to the SVN repository?

Anyways, nice contrib, thanks.

He was talking about actually committing it to 2.0 branch SVN. It's not there yet there per https://bzflag.svn.sourceforge.net/svnr ... neNode.cxx

we have no plans to release another 2.0.x client, so committing them to 2.0.x svn is a bit silly. Anyone who wants these in 2.0.x is going to have to build the client anyway, so they can just apply the patch.
