bf-blender / Windows (2004/04/21)

Postby jesterKing » Tue Apr 20, 2004 11:38 pm

New build available:

http://www.letwory.net/cvsbuilds/bf_blender_windows_20040421.tar.gz

The changelog in the development section on blender3d.org (see InfoCenter) is lagging a bit behind, but I'll be updating it soonish. There is a bugfix on AO and there are more smaller fixes done.

This build has been built with an optimising msvc compiler, and should be much faster than my previous builds.

I don't know what you're doing and with what you unpacked it, but it is a regular tar.gz package, which any decent archiving program knows how to handle. I have checked on three different machines, and on all those it unpacks to one directory bf_blender_windows_20040421, which contains a blender.exe, a few dlls and the .blender subdirectory.

sorry about that, looks nice, some nice slider fixes, and the areas look great. And as a plus the executable is .9 MB smaller!

What's wrong with using tar in windows?

nothing really but its just somewhat of a standard to use .zip for windows.

When i sw the link ending in .tar.gz, i automaticly assumed i'd clicked the linux link, but your right, theres nothing really wrong with it.

get the 21 day demo of 9.0 from winzip.com and use that in explorer, useing classic mode in winzip. you can extract it, and windows can open tar balls. Once you get it it works (duh). I had some trouble with it at first, but the area light features are worth it (demo on elysiun features tests)

The bug with things falling through the floor after several runs seems to be better, it takes about 10-12 runs before collisions stop working, instead of 4-5 with the last build.

The issue with adding objects in a few of my blends still hasn't gone away. After some tests, I think it might have something to do with an added object being dynamic and having other objects parented to it. In dragothic, where the added person is a dynamic empty with the head and arms parented to it, if I delete the children of the empty, the slowdown dissapears.

There was one commit by Kester for Solid concerning polyheder type bounding, but further there hasn't been really commits for the gameengine. I mainly have been playing with compile options. Apparently these influence the collision model, so I'll have to continue on this path. I should test more on Linux, too, but girlfriend is writing now a paper on it... :/
