i thought of something.

you should put ALL the variables that a user can change in one spot, like where the delta_z variable is. this way nobody has to search through your code to adjust things.

delta_z
cam_height
projection_angle
gravity
z_inc
force_x

here are some variables i found right away that a user can play with.

oh yea, set the depth of the bridges to like -10. so in the editor a user can remove and place terrain underneath a bridge, without the bridge getting covered up.

and uhh, can there be a variable to adjust the thickness of the bridges? i want to make them 1/2 the thickness they are now.

There's little chance the Halo models make it to the engine since they're like 1000+ polygons.

Sorry I'm not going to change those variable things. If users want to use this engine they are going to have to study the code anyway.

I'm going to find out whether or not that bridge thinkness variable is possible to implement.

- edit -
Sorry, it's not possible.

* Update *

Phantom Engine is now v0.05. This version is more stable than v0.04. It also fixes the known problems. Please see the first post.

yea your right, the user might as well just go into the code and change those variables. every game is different.

here's a problem.



the texture for Model_wall03 doesn't line up with Model_bridge03. here is the code

Code:
//draw the terrain
d3d_model_draw(model_Terrain01,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Terrain02,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Terrain03,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Terrain04,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Terrain05,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Terrain06,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);

d3d_model_draw(model_Wall01,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Wall02,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Wall03,0,0,0,tex_Grid[1]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Wall04,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Wall05,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);

d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge03_Top,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge03_Wall,0,0,0,tex_Grid[1]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge03_Bottom,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);

d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge04_Top,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge04_Wall,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge04_Bottom,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);

d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge05_Top,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge05_Wall,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge05_Bottom,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);

d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge06_Top,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge06_Wall,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);
d3d_model_draw(model_Bridge06_Bottom,0,0,0,tex_Grid[0]);

at 03, the texture should be the same all the way around. shouldnt it?

No it should. There is no problem... I didn't make it that everything would match, because there are 5 wall layers for 6 terrain layers... and that doesn't match. This way if you want bridges equivalent to wall layer 3 to have the same texture, change the texture argument for bridge 4, and not for bridge 3, because that one's for wall layer 2.

this is bridge_04, the texture on the bottom does not match the other bridges. it is repeating twice.


look at the texture for the ramp and the wall. they are opposite, either the wall primitives should be flipped, or the ramp primitive should be flipped. it is the same for all the ramps. the texture was not flipped vertically in the background editor.


here is a level i made

your engine kicks ass. Very Happy

I fixed the texture repeat thing. Just a matter of changing 1 digit. As for the up-side down textures, thanks for pointing it out! I didn't took it into account when programming it, but I do now. I'll fix them on the double. Wink

Very nice to see someone make something with my engine Very Happy

Yeah I noticed the problem too. I'm going to look for a solution.

- edit -

I've tried some stuff and I can't seem to encounter the problem myself. Show me the in the level editor where it happens so I can reconstuct the problem.

I've just discovered a new speed technique. Who the hell needs d3d_model_wall anyway?! I'll write up my own, way faster! Very Happy

you must be using primitives then? thats great cuz then you can UV map things. this wall allow you to make grass on the top of your walls. like this.

Yes I am. It gives a lot of freedom. I'll give the option to set the xtex1, ytex1, xtex2 and ytex2 arguments so you can easily set texture coordinates. (the normal d3d_model_wall cannot do this)

Unfortunately I cannot guarantee anything, because I'm messing DirectX up real bad.

Oh yeah. If you're messing with primitives things can go veeeery wrong. Don't worry though - everything will go back to normal when you close the exe and go back to gamemaker.

Fortunately I got my primitive drawing system to work without harming anything.

Yes. When I've finished v0.07, I'm going to make a big UT-like game with it. I'm going to use everything in my power to make this the best FPS game ever seen in GM. Wink
