Re: The Community is You!!!

There's a big difference between swearing at someone and discrimination. I'd say calling you a *** is discriminating, not just swearing at you. Convict, you are not reading my messages very well. I stated before that rookie was NOT calling me a f.a.g. but some other person, I forgot who it was. Cal...

Re: Call to server owners: Global Ban of Vogue

It's worth pointing out that people who claim words are valueless tend to have dark tetrad traits. Remember this so you can quickly gauge people before you might end up in a situation where you're subservient to their sadistic pleasure.

Re: What is your mental age?

I'm a 10. Such a boost to my self-esteem.

Side note: I've been here for over 10 years, and I first played Armagetron long before I joined.

Re: What's the correct pronunciation of Armagetron?

Pronounciation: just like Armageddon, just with a "tr" instead of the "dd".
My signature is a slight variation on this to highlight the "tron" part. I don't think it's that important, really. It's what I make of it.

Re: What happened to music?

One major problem for me is dynamic range compression. It's everywhere. Remasters of old music are fatiguing to say the least. New music doesn't offer a choice. Along with that come other effects that are often used with abandon. Music doesn't need straight-up autotune to sound so artificial it's ha...

I'm thinking of so many possible reasons, and I don't even know what it looks like. I should just stop. I guess I'll vanish again. :)

Re: INFINITE_PLANE

Most of that seems unlikely. Apparently w_o=0.001 is handled correctly when infinity is turned off, suggesting it isn't simply discarded. By the time we get to clip coordinates, we have w_c=-z_e using a standard projection matrix. At that point we have a similar w_c for any kind of perspective rende...

Re: INFINITE_PLANE

On the original topic, yes, it actually is an infinite plane. Well, on hardware where we know it's not supported, only an almost infinite plane. See, OpenGL uses projective geometry (not exactly for the math nerds, but close enough) for its input; points don't just have three coordinates (x,y,z), t...

Re: Page margin

Stop being ridiculous. It's much less of a pain to just let overflow happen without affecting anything else and you know it.

Re: [FEATURE REQUEST] List Scrollbar

Do you sink in quicksand? I know all about the FOV. There is absolutely no problem there.* Z-Man didn't say anything about it, either. I'm done. *It would be better to move the far plane a few quanta beyond infinity. Last words: I gather SDL can resize if you pass it a certain flag, but must recreat...

Re: [FEATURE REQUEST] List Scrollbar

The reason why dynamic (or live) resizing has not been added is probably due to the old ways things used to be done (tron is an old game after all). Specifically, it's what compguygene mentioned: the virtual "camera" that allows you to see in the 3d environment needs to know how to display what it ...

Re: [FEATURE REQUEST] List Scrollbar

OpenGL itself has no such limitations, if you allow the default framebuffer to change. I know for a fact it's trivial on OS X. You can not only resize the view but also move the context to a different one. Adjust your viewport and move on. There's really no reason that can't happen. But a lot of cod...

Re: [FEATURE REQUEST] List Scrollbar

Live resizing is very possible. People are just too lazy to deal with it.
