  1. Start by creating a general map loading function, use it where ever you load a map, add logic to that function to detect if a uniquemodel file exists for that map. If it doesn't load the map, create a dummy progress bar, then create a file of the uniquemodels currently loaded. Animate the progress bar. Next time the function is called for that map a uniquemodels file will exist, get all the entities loaded, counts the number of unique models, use this when animating a progress bar during this loading stage. The model list file could use the name of the map + "uniquemodels" . Once written the w
  2. if you can draw, paint, sculpt, and what you produce is realistic, and is easily recognizable as the original object, then you have an artistic gift, and you could become a modeler. if you don't have these skills you can create "programmer models" , which are only good for testing game ideas, once its considered worth pursuing, you might decide to invest in purchasing models or a modeler. Even without the artistic skill, you may be able to create a good quality model, but it will take such a long time, that you wont be able to hold a modeler position, as no one will want to pay you t
  3. try setting the account name to NickWashco rather than Nick Washco. I'm guessing the space is causing a problem for the shader loader.
  4. Create a new multiplayer project and the following files show up as Error: Failed to load after connecting to a new server on the debug log. 4.6 Leadwerks beta.

  5. I saw the Google Stadia announcement, cloud gaming, and its running on Linux, with Vulcan graphics, Havok. They seem to be talking about 2019 launch. Do you think this will be a game changer, will it make Linux more popular, and require more devs to be familiar with using a Linux platform?
  6. Over a period of time, these forums will collect lots of data. That data may remain relevant and be useful, or irrelevant and obscure relevant data. If nothing is done the irrelevant data will be more prevalent than the relevant. Thus making forums less useful to users. A knowledge management solution can help, but it needs some sort of data maintenance where user feedback keeps useful items, and relegates unhelpful items. Have you considered a knowledge management solution?
  7. Hi, I was wondering if anyone had combined animation sequences, with selecting bones to become controlled by ragdoll physics, as the character sustains injuries to arms, legs body and head. The existing character controller, simply reduces total health, and the dyeing sequence is selected when it drops below 0. However none of the injuries are fedback to the viewer, which would make fighting zombies more interesting.
  8. http://www.leadwerks.com/werkspace/topic/11065-monsterailua-function-scriptendattack-bug-fix/ This problem occurs when more than one monster is attacking you. Not sure if it was ever fixed.
  9. if you want to create a function that will not be sharing variables with other functions with the same name, are you thinking of having a using namespace convention?
  10. hi Josh, I can't find any reference to Actor in the API documentation, is this intentional?
  11. use a small radius point light source just in front of the light, so that it illuminates the headlight.
  12. sorry I assumed that each task was on a thread, running independently. I was suggesting that if you had more active threads than cpus, you would experience contention for those cpus. You would see this in the performance stats, as context switches, which will cause the current context to be saved, and another loaded. If this happens a lot you are loosing useful cpu processing power.
  13. as each thread is doing a smaller subset of the work, you are probably getting more cache hits, are you also using thread affinity on your busiest threads to stop them context switching.
  14. Have you tried turning off lua sandbox mode? Then are you getting the same results?
