bf-blender / Win32 (06/01/30)

Had some problems compiling Bf-Blender after the merge, so the first build is just a quick testcompile, before I make any major customizations. I have had some fun changing the 3d-manipulator icons, though :) I think mine are a little more descriptive. As shown here (cut'n'paste job for proposal):

Now there's also a tweak/fullscreen build, for those of you who prefer that.

Disclaimer from Ton:
I like to make a note that the removed "Fullscreen" windows option will cause OpenGL in Blender to not work properly. It was removed because the code was just too bad and quick hack.
I know the functionality is great and appreciated, but we have to wait for someone presenting us a more solid solition for it.
"Clean" build:

Have fun!

What does the tweakmode patch add?

You can edit (move) with RMB very fast, because don't need the LMB confirmation.

With this build, I found sometimes difficult to select vetexes. In former compilatios it was a matter of switching on and off depth buffer clipping (with it on, I couldn't select some vertexes), but now I can't do it in many cases, no matter if it is on or off. Maybe a matter of tweak mode?

Bellorum,

The icons are definitely improved!

Could you also try creating a new Hand icon?

I think a competition to design new icons for Blender ( and for Blender to allow for custom icons as a theme ) would be a great idea!

Yeah, the new widget icons look very good! BTW objects in a 3d view set to 'shaded' look like fruit salad in this build. Does this happen for anyone else, or is it my fruity ati video card?

Thanks! Believe me, I've been working on a replacement for the hand icon. Never understood the logic for it being a hand, anyways :? I would like for it to better convey it's function. Ideas are welcomed. :)

Might be your ATI card. One of the biggest reasons for removing the fullscreen option was that ATI cards had major problems with it.

My graphics card also does this (since Orange CVS of 23Jan2006). However, it also draws meshes in 'solid draw mode' as dark-ish objects divided into four patches of colour when set smooth is on.

hand >> handle or hand >> manipulator. basically its derived from the fact that you use yor hand to manipulate things (and manipulate itself comes from ancient latin "manus"). of course this can be applied to sooo many functions and buttons inside blender, we should have this icon everywhere! :) but in the end it makes sense for some ppl., and for others not - like always

it's hard to find the right approach. it would also sound logiacl if you say:" handles are invisible by default, so the button enabling them and thus making them visible should be based on an eye". or, to make it even more "logical", take an eye AND a hand.. or get rid of both :)
