Re: Storm Engine 2 (modified Doom 3 BFG) source code is publ

Unfortunately I had no time to work on id tech during the last 2 months. I only did a quick look into the code using a diff tool. However I already liked the renderdemo/record changes. It seems that a lot of the changes are made by LH. There is definitely a lot of cool stuff that is worth to be merg...

Cool thanks. I really need to get more time to work RBDOOM again.

Re: Storm Engine 2 (modified Doom 3 BFG) source code is publ

Yeah many of the changes are very useful. It would also be nice if you could add the renderprogs/*.pixel and *.vertex shaders. You only uploaded translated GLSL output however that output varies with my renderer depending on which OpenGL version is targeted. The source shaders would help the migrati...

Thanks for publishing the code. I will merge back some fixes and probably the MFC tools work into RBDOOM-3-BFG.

Re: Best engine for lot's of entities?

There was a discussion about RBDOOM-3-BFG running 300 zombies. http://idtechforums.fuzzylogicinc.com/index.php?topic=198.0 I had really big problems in XreaL with the Q3A netcode when dealing with many entities. The constant updates from the client game to the renderer completely suck with the Q3A a...

Re: Finally nailed how to capture and render the depth buffe

Couldn't you just rip the _currentDepth code from the BFG renderer?

Re: Khronos unveils Vulkan: OpenGL built for modern systems

Actually I can't wait to see how the BFG renderer will perform with a Vulkan backend. I agree with mh in all aspects. Vulkan is potentially great.

Re: Using Blender to make Quake 3 maps

Thanks for the link. I have been thinking about replacing the Doom 3 Radiant entirely with a new Blender workflow.
I still need to find a way to expose the entityDef entity key value pairs to the Blender GUI.

Re: What are you working on?

As for anyone using the BFG source for modding i havent seen anything yet, but in time it might come. Kot in Action team, with their Phaeton: Aurora's Journey seems to use BFG engine but their YouTube page is a little outdated and I didn't see any dev blog about using this engine for new games. Iod...

Re: What are you working on?

I found some people who are left from the D3W community. They are located at http://www.moddb.com/members/thehappyfriar/blogs/doom3world/ and http://idtechforums.fuzzylogicinc.com reckless I don't have a lot of time to merge stuff by other people. Github really helps to collaborate. I already merged...

Re: What are you working on?

Looks good :) also nice to see that you fixed the missing bink code with ffmpeg. One small problem im facing is that the game window sorta flickers (not the usual flickering it kinda jumps up and down a few times after koading). My cards are 2x ATI R9 270X with latest driver, might be a driver bug ...

Re: What are you working on?

It is partially based on my previous Q3A/XreaL stuff and Carmack's early shadow mapping research that was released in the Doom 3 GPL code. However the Doom 3 GPL release didn't contain the necessary ARB assembly shaders but the BFG .resources did. I was able to reconstruct the missing parts in C for...

Re: What are you working on?

Well 99% of the feedback is that the people who play Doom 3 like it and find it awesome. The option r_forceShadowMapsOnAlphaTestedSurfaces 1 actually makes the game darker but it was requested by one of the active D3 modders and I kept it in because it looks better and plays nicely with the fake sha...

Re: What are you working on?

I have added soft shadow mapping to the Doom 3 BFG edition recently.

You can get it from https://github.com/RobertBeckebans/RBDO ... G/releases
