<--- There He Goes!
Ended up doing a final revision for redfield especially because the map uses alpha masked models (I like alpha masked models and want them to be used in Quake).
I'll be back sometime before Christmas and do split screen for sure and I'll probably check the thread every few weeks in read-only mode.
/Back around Christmas, I imagine.
I would also kind like of like to enhance the frogbot support to offer some way of setting up the frogbots nice and easy in the engine. (Maybe "development season".)
Wow, sounds nice!
There He Goes
Or so he said last time. We'll see....
@mankrip, nice, that would be a really clever way to "support" OGGs on systems such as Android that can't play OGG natively. Though I'm not sure how much of a delay might occur the first time the transcoding occurred. And it wouldn't help in my situation, as I would be right back where I started, with MP3. But still, that would be a clever workaround to allow maximum compatibility for soundtracks on all platforms.
I've got a pretty thick skin so I can handle being called a "dumbf*ck." But I have never run Quake on Linux and have not tested Mark V on anything but Win7.
As far as the install command. I plan on covering that in the upcoming Mark V video. I love that feature and anything that will make it easier for people to play my maps is welcome. It's not laziness IMO. There are too many alternatives for people's attention.
Mistaken identity. There's actually an FvF player called Dr.DUMBFUCK who I told to come here and report his Linux issue, heh. #2137
But I guess you could be Dr. Dumptruck!
it wouldn't help in my situation, as I would be right back where I started, with MP3.
Then I don't see what's the problem. I don't pay attention to most posts.
Shortest version: on my WinXP netbook, loading an MP3 causes Mark V to completely freeze up for up to 20 seconds, but an OGG file of the same track loads in 1 second or less.
Then the MP3 playback needs fixing.
I've been following the thread and didn't notice that name. LOL
Mark V And Xinput
Baker, here's a note for your next session. :-)
Sometimes I play Quake through Steam in-home streaming. My controller in that case is a Steam controller that presents as an Xinput joystick + buttons. This works with Quakespasm, but not with the latest Mark V (even with the -joystick option specified).
The console says:
joystick not found — invalid joystick capabilities (6)
Reading back through some previous posts I can’t quite tell if I should have expected this to work or not. So, FYI.
Thanks for putting out that new release Baker. You are da boss. My map should be out with the release of the upcoming mapjam.
Yeah, I still have issues too. I still have to physically unplug my other controller (whether set to dinput or xinput) just to get Mark V to recognise my XBone controller. I, too, was unclear if these issues were addressed or deferred... I'm not the brightest bulb on the Christmas tree so it's nice to see I'm not the only one a little confused here. :)
[edited By Moderator] Not Sure If This A Bug, But
Let's say i'm running a background streaming video in my browser
i run MV, and in that case, the fps are locking at 60
i terminate the streaming video, the fps are upping to their max
i'm still cannot figure this shite
Why Is Everyone Saying Android Doesn't Natively Support Vorbis?
I'm fairly certain that Android has supported Vorbis since 2008, so why is everyone saying that Android doesn't support it natively? What's the big issue with Vorbis support anyways?
I also find it strange that people say that Vorbis is not used in the game industry at all and that it's 'obscure,' yet I can name 5 games off the top of my head that use Vorbis?
I don't recall the claim being that Android doesn't supports oggs. The point is that hardware decoding of mp3 is ubiquitous, oggs must be software-decoded and that make a very appreciable difference to both performance and battery life. "Everything is software" is cutesy in the desktop space but it cuts no ice in mobile.
Use Ctrl + F and search for OGG and you'll eventually find claims that Android doesn't support Vorbis.
And what exactly does Mark V have to do with mobile though? I still see no reason to purposely disable Vorbis support for the desktop if Mark V is used on mobile devices, especially when some people have issues with Mark V loading MP3s.
About that: I still would like get an answer on mp3 playback in the Quakedroid channel. Just look at my most recent post over there.
When I was mentioning that Android wouldn't play OGG, I was only mistakenly repeating what Baker seemed to say in #2169 where he used the word "impossible." But then I found that Android CAN natively play OGG, and I posted about it over in the QuakeDroid thread.
I read something online saying that ringtones in MP3 format do not loop in Android, but ringtones in OGG format do loop (if a certain flag is set in the file), so I assume that's why Google uses OGG format ringtones for apps like Hangouts (and other built-in alarms and ringtones you will find in Android).
brassbite, I don't think music support has been added to QuakeDroid yet. Like you, I could not get an MP3 to play in the game.
Well Thats A Bummer
Why are we even discussing adding ogg support when the fucking game can't even play any music at this point?
QuakeDroid played the OST just fine for me...
So... i'm trying to compile the last version of markV
(this one http://quakeone.com/markv/builds/mark_v_1099_revision_4_source.rar
and i'm getting the following error:
fatal error C1083: Cannot open include file: 'windows.h': No such file or directory
what am i doing wrong? :/
QuakeDroid played the OST just fine for me...
Well, then I don't know what the deal is. I (and brassbite) can't seem to get the MP3s to play in QuakeDroid. We need word from Baker about this.
(And I think we're getting some cross-posting confusion between QuakeDroid and Mark V.)
