Re: Efficient way to add noise on a gradient sky?

Hi Ats, Oh, by the way, the purpose is to generate sky gradients on the fly, the sky gradient could be a 64x64 bitmap with a 4096*4096 noise generated only once and blended into i,t if that could help for the speed. But is it possible to blend two materialTextures of different sizes inside a materia...

Re: Z80 ZX Spectrum build support

Hej Ville, Super cool & wild idea! Some notes regarding the Master System / Game Gear target. - Non-Japanese ROMs actually require a header at the end, which includes a ROM size descriptor nibble .. so ROMs needs to be padded. - The VDP can only handle VRAM writes every 29 cycles outside of the VBla...

Re: Question About the License

Hi Fate, Can I sell games made with ZGameEditor? Because it says in the website that the source itself is under MIT License. But I'm wondering about the games the software itself produces (or compiles). Sure! Of course you can sell games made with ZGE ... no revenue caps, royalties or mandatory spla...

Re: simple camera rotation problem

Hi jinxtengu, But I do have one other question, how do we invert a value, to turn it from a positive to a negative and vice versa? The simplest method is to just use put a negative sign in front of your variable, but any of these will work ... value = -value; value = 0-value; value *= -1; value = va...

Re: Retriggering an already playing sound

Hej Ville, Although in this case it is not the "GlobalLFO" that is used but the LFO that is local to the sound, so could perhaps be a bug here. I didn't mean the global LFOs that are part of the AudioMixer, i meant the way that they are driven seemed "global". But perhaps the fact that they aren't r...

Sound 1 in Group 1 is from the original example and it works as expected, but sound 2 (from my project) breaks and sounds different every time it's triggered. Why?
It's because the LFOs are driven globally, so they don't get reset every time you re-trigger the sound.

Re: How to color an imported 3ds mesh?

Hi Ats, I'm trying to color an imported 3DS mesh directly in ZGE. This mesh is already colored using vertex colors. I tried UseMaterial and RenderSetColor without success. Vertex colors, material color and RenderSetColor all manipulate the same data in the fixed-function pipeline, so you can't "comb...

Re: Coding a radar, and a bunch of other stuff perhaps.

Hi jinxtengu, I am interested in coding a radar showing the positions of enemies in relation to the player, similar to the old game Battlezone Personally i wouldn't call what Battlezone 2000 on ATARI Lynx does a "radar" .. it's more like a mini-map. A radar only updates the location of objects it de...

Re: Very Simple MP3 Player DLL

Do I always have to refer to a particular file name in order to stop it or is there a way to just issue a command "Stop current playing track"? You can assign a alias ... which requires the file to be opened & closed ( instead of just play & stop ). It's pretty straight-forward though, here's a mod...

Re: Very Simple MP3 Player DLL

Hi rrTea, Is there any way to control the volume? I'm trying to fade a song at a particular point at the end of the stage. Sure, put the following ZExpression in App.OnUpdate of the Sunset example for a demonstration ( move mouse up & down to control the volume ). float v = (App.MousePosition.Y+1)*5...

Hi rrTea, So I tested my new project (was just getting ready to publish it) and it came out with a 20/66 score ("seriously suspicious" I assume), crazy!

Re: Virus or false positive?

Hi rrTea, Maybe ZGE should have an additional build option "year 2020 version" where it produces a 64 Mb exe for an empty project, I bet such a file would be treated with much more respect >:-P I know this is just a snarky / jokingly remark. But you can easily put this to the test by adding a File c...

Re: Sound Meter

Hi Ats, I'm afraid this is not possible ( out of the box ). The easiest workaround would probably be to wrap the IAudioMeterInformation interface in a DLL so you can call GetPeakValue from ZGE. By the way, the MasterVolume property simply controls the overall volume of all audio in your project, it ...
