Hey jph. Great game! I absolutely enjoyed it. Controls are spot on, and the atmospheric music and sound effects give the otherwise minimal game allot of flair :) If i'd have to give some critique it would be that the green collectibles disappear after some time, while the orange death-mines don't. T...

Hej Ville, My GPU was actually set to "Application Controlled" VSync. When changing it to "Force Off" the framerate went up dramatically as you predicted. However, the hiccups still occurred. While I'm definitely no expert in this field, I suspect is that by not limiting the behavioral framerate wit...

LUA

Hej, Not sure if this would be any easier then revising the current scripting compiler ( and how much it would increase the size of a ZGE executable ), but what are your thoughts on implementing a existing script language like LUA ( or Squirrel )? There are Delphi bindings publicly available for thi...

Hej Ville, What calculation are you using to determine the DeltaTime? Also, as far as I can see you sync the render frequency to the environment screen frequency, correct? But what about the behavior loop? Is it tied to the framerate or does it have it's own rate ( free / limited )? And this might b...

Delta

Hej, When a ZApplication is running in a environment with a refresh rate other then 60Hz, I experience a DeltaTime hick-up / offset every second. This only seems to go for windowed / preview mode, as the refresh rate is automatically switched to 60Hz when running a App in fullscreen. I suspect this ...

Alpha

Hi,

Quick question. Are Bitmaps in 24 or 32-bit? The following BitmapExpression doesn't seem to have any result.

Code: Select all

this.Pixel.A = Y;

Hej Ville, About the BitmapExpression, how do you mean? All the normal zexpression-commands are available here. My bad :) I mistakenly thought the pixel indices where referred from the actual bitmap dimensions, while you're using a 0-1 range instead ( it's even mentioned in the Component Reference )...

Hi zakkwylde, Not quite sure what you are asking there ... in any case, here is the Enemy Follow example executed over all 3 axes. The player sphere can be controlled using the Arrow Keys again + A to ascent and Z to descent. And we should have made a separate topic as this has nothing to do with No...

Hi zakkwylde,

Are the enemies restricted to a 2D plane or can they move freely in 3D? In case it's 2D take a look at the example I've attached. If it's 3D you're after, let me know and I'll hook you up with a 3D version ;)

Kind Regards,
Kjell

Hi jph_wacheski, First of all, I think ZGE is a great tool in it's current state, capable of hosting a wide spectrum of applications with ease and elegance. However, since there is definitely room for improvement, I feel that the least I can do as non-Delphi/Pascal linguist is contributing by feedba...

Hi jph_wacheski, While I have to vote against the 2D varieties of your suggestions as ZGE does not have a 2D system in place at all, I do agree that not being able to get the distance between 2 objects easily ( or anything regarding instances for that matter ) is quite a shortcoming.
