Moar trunk stuffffff (or drunk?)

Post by Svengali »

I've put together some Betas for trunk users (r5603+), because v1.77 will change quite a few things and we (OXPers) will need time to alter our OXPs. So pushing Betas out early is probably a good thing, although some finetuning will be necessary.

In the last weeks Thargoid and I had some quite valuable sessions with quite interesting ideas floating around. Thanks for some really nice additions, Thargoid .-)

Cabal_Common_Library:
- A few more options for the CCL_Briefings (documented).
- Added in CCL_Functions.moreInfo a property 'connected' which holds the connected systems from the players starting point in the current galaxy.
- New script to handle overlays via shaders. It ships as start a few Character and Notification overlays. Let's see what Rese249er can add.-)
- Thargoid send some functions for string handling on screens - strAddAlignedText, strAddEdgeText, strAddIndentedText, strAdd2Columns and strAdd3Columns.
- CCL_Music handles now shipScoopedFuel.

BGS (BGS-A only):
- VisualEffect for the jump sequence with a new shader. The new effect is handled through CCL.
- Added cleaned pics for long_range_chart_mission and short_range_chart_mission.
- Uses the new interface structure (4 new pics and 2 new sounds).
- Added effect for wormhole exit.
- Got rid of the used overlays.
Requires the CCL Beta.

The patches for Customsounds, Halsis and Hawksound are available.
I've send Corny the patch for his Captain Berf Pilot.

Snoopers:
- Changed the images - the planet in the upper right corner is gone.
- New models/shaders/textures for all 4 news agencies.
- Uses setInterface instead of accessing it via F7.
- Adapted the new string expansion (see http://www.aegidian.org/bb/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=12615).
- The new aegis notification is handled through CCL.
Requires the CCL Beta.

For inserted messages nothing should change, but you might get warnings in some special cases.

OXPConfig
- Added cims 'Skilled NPCs'.
Requires the CCL Beta.

Hyperradio
- Switched behaviour to new mode key (b) for playing. Station selection remains on the same key as before (n).
Requires the CCL Beta.

Is there a video anywhere of this new effect?

Svengali may have something - I haven't ventured into vid-capture (I don't dare - I may become too distracted/obsessed by it).
It's best seen live, though - well worth the ten minutes it takes to install trunk, and Svengali's beta OXPs.

My box allows only recording of small sized videos, so no vid.

OK, there's a link to a capture here on my youTube channel.

With apologies for the slight glitchiness but it was done on my little netbook, which ain't the most muscular of machines...

On one occasion this afternoon, the new jump sequence was abruptly shortened - emergence and the game continued as normal.
There was nothing in the log, and I haven't been able to reproduce it - just thought I'd mention it (r5427).

After some very valuable sessions with Thargoid and cim it's time to push out some new versions (see first post), resulting in some new features and lots of tweaks - muchas gracias for your great input and work .-)

Thargoid is also now co-author for BGS. The new effect is the result :D

Indeed - nice to see it after the full works of magic on it.

As you may already know, Svengali, I'm not a fan of cut-scenes in games - but I have to admit that the animation demo interests the fictioneer in me. I've had to disable it though, as I really don't need the distraction of trying to think of ways to use something like that in an OXP right now. One fine day - maybe!

*grins* Mission complete .-)

And yes, cutscenes can push story driven OXPs a lot...

It must be my evening for log errors - a whole bunch of these (r5505):

Code: Select all

19:50:35.980 [script.javaScript.exception.ooliteDefined]: ***** JavaScript exception (<unidentified script>): Error: Cannot set property orientation of instance of VisualEffect to invalid value undefined.
19:50:35.980 [script.javaScript.exception.ooliteDefined]:       ../AddOns/BGS-A1.6_r66.oxp/Scripts/bgs_exitWormhole_effect.js, line 19.
Probably due to the fact that I was ruthlessly gunned-down as I emerged from the wormhole!

Further to that, a couple of jumps later the hyperspace effect failed completely - just the sounds, then I emerged (no log errors, though).
